It’s reported that, this 5-inch BlackBerry phone screen ratio is similar to Samsung Galaxy S4, and it will be released in the next few months as its new flagship. Unfortunately, in addition to the screen size, there is no more specific configuration information leaked. After the battery life of the Z10 are criticized by users, it’s rumored Blackberry hopes to significantly improve the endurance performance in this phone.

If the message of the release time of this phone is true, then this 5-inch phone is likely to use Qualcomm’s new chip, which may either be the Snapgragon 600 adopted in Galaxy S4 and HTC One, or the unreleased Snapdragon 800.

However, taking into account the Z10 and Q10 are with the outdated Snapdragon S4 chip, maybe Blackberry may use the powerful but slightly behind the times S4 Pro on this phone.

Although it’s called the iPhone 6, but taking into account that the configuration of the device is only slightly upgraded, and perhaps it is more appropriate to call it as the iPhone 5S.

In this conceptual design, the iPhone 6 back cover has no change when compared to the iPhone 5, the front is not with much difference. However, the Home key design that we are familiar to has changed – the user can return to the main screen when touches anywhere at the bottom of the device. Basically, it looks like Magic Trackpad trackpad installed on the iPhone, and the Home key can be regarded as cancelled.

The iPhone 6 in the concept design is 20% thinner than the iPhone 5, which is only 6.1 mm. As it can be seen from the figure, the tagline is “everything proof”, which may mean that it has three anti-function.

Another noteworthy feature is that this concept version iPhone 6 is with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture lens, the sensory component is iSight Pro, which will further enhance the shooting performance of the device.
