This iPhone 6 concept features a bigger, edge-to-edge screen, iOS 7 and aluminium carbon fibre casing

A new iPhone 6 concept has appeared online with a 6-inch edge-to-edge display.

The concept, by designer Jonny Plaid, shows a slimmer but larger device, constructed from aluminium carbon fibre.

The device will be 40 per cent lighter and 60 percent stronger.

We can also see iOS 7 running on the handset, although there's no home button which is pretty integral to a device running iOS 7 for a using features such as Siri and to access multitasking.

The larger screen will feature the Retina 2 screen, with a graphene layer that makes it stronger than Corning's Gorilla Glass. Plaid said, 'having the thickness of just one carbon atom, graphene is the strongest known material. A single layer of graphene is virtual indestructible.'

Plaid says the iPhone will be available in 32GB, 64GB, 96GB and 128GB with prices between $199 (£150) for the 32GB capacity to $499 (£400) for the top-end device.

These prices seem a little low to us, reflecting the price of the iPhone Light rather than the flagship. We're expecting the 32GB iPhone 6 to cost around £450.

The iPhone 6 is rumoured to launch in 2014, while the iPhone 5S and iPhone Light will launch later this year.

According to rumours, the iPhone 6 will be a completely new version of the iPhone, while the iPhone 5S will be an interim update.

Hey! Thanks for writing about my concept! I just wanted to clear up some of the specs. iPhone 6 is not any bigger or thinner than the iPhone 5. The physical dimensions are identical between the two. The only thing that is bigger is the display which only measures 4.5" diagonally (754 X 1296). Also, you're right that there is no home button in iPhone 6. Instead, the entire bottom area has multi-touch gesture support. The pricing of iPhone 6 is the same as iPhone 5 in the US. ($199 subsidy with 2 year contract for the 16GB model). That's about it. If you want to take a look at the entire concept, you can check it out here http://bit.ly/YQ3pR0
