iPhone 6 & Pro aesthetically pleasing designs

Regular techies will know that as soon as one iPhone arrives interest turns to the next one so shortly after the arrival of the iPhone 5 we are already starting to think about its successor, probably to be called the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6. As well as discussing likely specs, features etc. we always find it intriguing to think about what it will look like and today we look ahead to an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Pro design and ask what you think.

When the iPhone 4S turned up looking the same as the iPhone 4 we hoped for something more groundbreaking in looks for the iPhone 5. However although there was a two-tone color effect and the display was longer there was still nothing to make us really sit up and pay attention. We always enjoy seeing concept designs that give us an idea of alternative looks for phones and recently told you about an iPhone 6 concept that moved the home button to the left hand side of the phone. Today we have more concept designs for you to take a look at.

The first (see above) comes from designer Jacob Williams and although there are no major changes to grab our attention one thing that did catch our eye is the blue strip for adjusting volume by sliding it up and down. The idea is that the user can also hold down the blue strip to mute the toggle on/off and when you do so the light will flash to show this has been done. As the Mute toggle is incorporated in the blue strip the spot where it used to be is taken by the power button. There are no further imaginings from the designer as to specs and features but we’ve already been discussing the possibilities here.

In yet another set of designs (see below), this time from Ben Ling, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Pro make further concept appearances and this time specs have been offered too. The iPhone 6 Pro model features a 4.55-inch Retina display with resolution of 1280 x 720 and includes a keyboard (very un-Apple like). The addition of the keyboard makes it 11m thick and 139g. The standard iPhone 6 by comparison also has a 4.55-inch Retina display with the same resolution as the Pro but the lack of a keyboard makes this one 7mm thick and 120g.

Both phone ideas have an A7 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16,32 or 64GB of storage and LTE connectivity. We think many people would love to see the next iPhone turn up with these specs, which also include a 13-megapixel rear iSight camera, 2-megapixel front-facing shooter with 1080p video capture and 2100 mAh battery, all running on the next major Apple mobile OS upgrade, iOS 7. We’d love to know what you think of these concept images and specs for the iPhone 6 and 6 Pro? Which design, if any would you like to see become a reality? Would you be pleased if the next iPhone had the above specs? Send your comments to us about this.

    That’s not fair for us who already got the iphone 5 unless Att gives us a break in order to update. You guys come out with a new phone every year but the carriers don’t give us a break. Honestly I’m getting tired of this game

    Who cares of design…I think most loyal iPhone lovers including myself care more for battery life first second design. If battery dont get resolved for current iphone 5 owners samsung will be #1 on the block and iphone 6 wont stand a chance. Bring your hype you wont have the numbers. I work for a company and we develope and enhance 4G and LTE capabilities. We used to use the iPhone5 for test and communication to our micro base stations but can’t even last 5 hrs. Our joke is no iPhone5 aloud in the laboratories. I love my iPhone5 but so many already switching over. What do you say about that?

    Keyboard is really unlikely but design is great. I rather see a 4.8″ retina screen and the sliding volume and mute should be left alone. The iPhone is great aesthetically pleasing with those features. Getting rid of the home screen would be awesome. Optional home button can be placed on the left or right side. This would be a dream.

    I do recommend iPhone including sliding keyboard, but if you notice in the picture, it is fatter than the iPhone 5, which will ruin the fact that you can “use the phone in one hand.”

    I am certain that the next iPhone will not include a built in keyboard. That is what the touch screen is for. Although, it is easier to type with a built in keyboard, like my phone includes.
