iphone 6 drawing

A fairly sketchy, schematic-like drawing has surfaced on the web this morning depicting what could be two next-gen iPhones. The image, which is of terrible quality, was first published by popular Japanese magazine MacFan and then passed on by Macotakara.

As you can see, the drawing shows two separate handsets: one with a 4.7-inch display and one with a 5.7-inch display. This lines up with several previous reports, as do many of the design elements of the devices such as their bezel-free screens and slim profile

According to MacRumors, the two devices in the image are actually referred to as iPhone ‘6c’ models by MacFan and Macotakara. While it seems odd that Apple would offer two smartphone models with multiple display sizes, it does match up with prior intel.

Also worth noting is that there seems to be a single-bulb circular flash next to the rear camera. Apple moved to a dual-LED flash with the iPhone 5s, but interestingly enough, we saw the same circle flash on a purported iPhone 6 dummy unit earlier this week.

So what does all of this mean? Probably nothing. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention it and it turned out to be something. With manufacturers rumored to start mass-producing next-gen iPhones within the next few months, we should know more very soon.

Yesterday, the oft-accurate Japanese news outlet Nikkei reported that the so-called iPhone 6 will come in both 4.7- and 5.5-inch variations.

    • Eli Miller

      • Jeffrey

        you don’t know that, it could be any size from 5.5 to 5.8 inches…

      • Glenn DolFan Baptista

        Schematic says 5.7 above

  • Jonathan

    Looks like a box. 0_o

      lol, doesn’t really look legit

  • mondo

    was hoping for a totally new design for the i6…won’t be long before the only way to distinguish any phones will be the branding, as they’re all starting to look too similar….

      well this is a sketch, how the hell could you possibly see a design out of this?

    • nonchalont

      That way an iphone 4 doesn’t look too obsolete to the eye. People can still look cool.

      How can you tell off the design from this sketch? It’s obvious a phone will be some rectangular shape.

  • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

    If this is true and the iPhone 6 looks like a 5S there is no point getting this.

    So finally Apple will copy Samsung

    • Spencer Hutchins

      that is why samsung is being sued for infringing 5 of apples patents.

  • so either apple adopts a new design and people will bitch because it will look like a samsung device, or they stay with the same design, which people will bitch because it’s the same. can’t you people be pleased? the only way to impress you guys is to make a an iPhone as powerful as a Mac Pro and be made out of solid gold.
