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.
