Fresh iPhone 6 concepts: The wraparound and BIG iPhablet

As iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 fever heats up, so do concept designers

Time could be running short on iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 concept designs if speculation is correct that Apple has a smartphone launch planned for Sept. 10. But in the meantime, let the last of these great out-of-the box ideas roll.

One fresh take from NYC’s Claudio Guglieri at the Dribbble designers’ site is a wraparound iPhone that features a bezel-free display that literally wraps around the whole phone, even the sides. The technology to support this, and help a user avoid tapping this and that on the sides of the phone, would indeed be challenging to perfect.

Another Dribbble designer, Michael Shanks, also offered up his spin, including a lock screen on the front and icons on the side.

If you’re looking for a better and BIGGER iPhone, here’s Rav Avni’s iPhablet design. This concept boasts at 6.2-inch full HD display, fingerprint sensor, iOS 7.1, a 10MPand 3.2MP cameras, a choice of eight colors, an A8X chip and more. What we have here is a tweener that fits in between an iPhone and iPad Mini size-wise.
