iPhone 6 renders based on leaked schematics

New iPhone 6 renderings based on leaked schematics have surfaced

It's that time of year again, folks. With spring steadily approaching, the iPhone rumor mill is kicking into high gear. Over the last 2-3 weeks, we've seen a marked increase in the number of stories purporting to show and detail what Apple's upcoming iPhone 6 design will look like and the features it will house.

In late March, the Japanese-language blog Macotakara published schematics which allegedly showcased designs for 4.7 and 5.7-inch iPhone models. Following that, Nowhereelse.fr commissioned designer Martin Hajek to actually create some renders based on those schematics. The most notable design features to take note of below include the near-absence of any bezel and the fact that the power button is now located on the side of the device.

Here are a few of the shots.

As we've noted before, Apple this fall, or perhaps late summer, is expected to release two new larger-screened iPhone models. Consequently, some analysts are anticipating a much larger than usual refresh cycle.

Aside from increased screen sizes, some other rumored features for Apple's next-gen smartphone include an A8 processor, NFC functionality, improved optics, and perhaps a scratch-proof sapphire display.
