    The Curve

    Designer Federico Ciccarse opted to give his concepts a curved back, even though The Wall Street Journal indicated the coming models will be flat.

Apple might be rolling out a larger iPhone later this year, but designer Federico Ciccarse didn’t want to wait to see what a big-screen iPhone would look like.

Ciccarse created a series of concept photos that reveal what the iPhone could look like if it grows in size. Last month, The Wall Street Journal reported Apple will launch two new iPhones in the second half of 2014: one with a screen larger than 4.5 inches and one with a screen larger than 5 inches. The current iPhone 5S and 5C have screens that measure 4 inches diagonally.

The picture below is Ciccarese’s vision for an iPhone with a 5.5-inch display (1,568 x 878 pixels) as well as one with a 4.7-inch (1,338 x 750) display. The 4-inch iPhone 5S (1,138 x 649) is shown to the left.

iPhone 6 Concept

 

The move from the iPhone 4-inch display would dip into the much-debated “phablet” category, a vague domain caught somewhere between a tablet and smartphone. It’s either a category people love — or love to hate. But Apple competitors such as Samsung have successfully offered larger screen sizes.

Ciccarese opted to give his concepts a curved back, even though the Journal report indicated the coming models will be flat.
