Bits flapping about??? Are they really going to make a phone with no case and think we'll be ok with that? Apple has gone too far this time with this whole "thin" approach!

Just a little more evidence they may have indeed gone with Sapphire. Don't need a screen protector.

I'm sure Apple won't be sending their iPhone over to Feld & Volk next time.

Can't wait for the iPhone 6! I might have to camp in front of the Apple store tomorrow! (Just kidding, but I bet we're only one or two weeks away from that actually happening). Now if only we could ban the people who post in here only to say this is further evidence there won't be a 5.5" iPhone.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about the curved edge of the screen. I'm buying one regardless, but still.
Are you actually trying to control how I interact on a social forum?
If I want to sign my posts with a bloody D, then I'm going to.

As for the external antenna. It was a joke.

Wow, the slight up and then downward curve of the edge of the front panel is _very_ slick bit of design. If this is an actual production part, that’s a beautiful design touch.

Leave him alone, plenty of people put in every single Apple device they own in their signature, all he's doing is signing off with the initial of his name. I know which of the two is more annoying and self absorbed.

Where does it state that this is the 4.7 inch model?

Looking forward to it.

Really looking forward to iOS8 and third party keyboards to go with that tasty new screen size.

Yeah it is, it doesn't go up, it curves down to the base.

They're not that narrow. Look at the back of an iPhone 5S screen to see what I mean. The backing on the screen is bigger than the screen on the other side.

Edit: oh looks like I need to sign an "R" because everyone else is doing it

I just searched for iPhone 5S screens and it is pretty much the same, where ear piece speaker is. What you see in the back (digitizer?) is bigger than the screen in the front.

Your not the only one who's liking those curved edges.
