iPhone 6 "Air" Concept Shows The Return Of The Glass Back Design
A new take on the not-yet-announced iPhone 6 from an independent designer provides a look at what we might expect from a thinner, larger screened, next-generation Apple device. This is the latest in a series of design takes by Martin Hajek on potential future Apple products and is commissioned by French blog NWE based on recently leaked sketches, which may or may not be legitimate.
Regardless of how close this is to the real thing (which will likely be unveiled in September), it’s certainly a fun look at what might come next.
As you can see, this design embraces the glass back that Apple ditched with the iPhone 5 in favor of an aluminum enclosure. The edges are matte metal, however, and the key feature here is the nearly edge-to-edge display and the extremely thin design.
It’s kind of like a cross between the new iPad Mini with Retina display and the iPhone 4/4S.
