Is this the IPhone 6?

Apple has filed a patent for a curved, wraparound smartphone screen. The iPhone 6 may have a curved, wraparound screen according to an Apple patent filing, and the healthy dollop of web-speculation that followed it.

The Apple iPhone 6 – what we’re nominally calling the next smartphone from Apple, which could equally be called the iPhone 5s, or something totally different – is probably the most anticipated gadget on the planet right now.

Apple files a huge amount of patents, however a recent one showing an iPhone design with a wraparound AMOLED screen, which appears to be similar in design to the fourth generation iPod Nano, has gained particular attention.

According to the patent, the screen can be ‘unrolled’ or ‘unfolded’ thanks to a hinge or unfolding mechanism allowing the screen area to be almost doubled in size.

Facial-recognition, gesture control and the layering of screens to create a 3D display were also described in the patent.

As usual, Apple’s policy of zero information prior to actually launching the iPhone 6 has always acted as petrol on the fire for rumors.

Guesses, educated and otherwise, as to what the iPhone 6 will look like started to appear almost as soon as the iPhone 5 was launched.

I joined Beginners Tech as a Technical Journalist in July 2012 and have never looked back. I love tech, gadgets, games and electronics; whether they are retro, current or future concepts. My loving fiancé Sarah has said that when I receive new items for review I’m like a kid in a toy shop – unable to leave it alone for two minutes! Coming from a design background, I am passionate about the design and aesthetics of tech as well as functionality.
