    Yet I don't understand the benefit of curved screen ...

    Curved back would be understandable, but the front ? :confused:

    Maybe this is the cheaper model to be released soonish, with the plastic back?

    If using both thumbs, it could be more comfortable. If only using one, concave would make more sense.

    I hope it is not curved. I don't like a curved back as it rocks when I use it when it is lying on a table.

    Doubtful that these are real, but I do like the design and hope that it will be real. :apple:

    Looks like a 4th/5th generation nano.. Not really a fan of it. Looks kind of awkward to hold.

    No homebutton? Or is it obscured by the watermark? Capacitive perhaps?

    Supposed to be something with how you read and how it lines up better with your eye or something. I remember when the nexus s and galaxy nexus came out that was a topic of discussion

    I had a Galaxy Nexus, and it wasn't curved like that. It was curved from top to bottom, and it was very slight; not side to side and making it look like a football, like this piece of garbage.

    I hope it's not real!

    Interesting, doesen't matter if this is it or not, I'm happy with my 5 and will be keeping it for a good while so I can really care less. It looks like it would be a bit uncomfy to hold after a bit..

    I'm just wondering where the volume buttons are or the mute switch

    ----------

    Was just thinking if this is the direction they are heading then I'm thinking iOS 7 on this device the icons would be movable on demand like just swipe the whole row over to the app you need like a gesture maybe. Also they could be going with haptics to control volume and mute maybe.

    This along with the larger screen could very well take Apple to a place that would be hard for any manufacturer to follow.

    That looks awful! Too square, it needs rounded corners.

    Also I wonder if the authentic buy was more for their finger sensing tech than their fingerprint scanning tech, now Apple may very well bring real fingerprint tech to the masses but if they are going 100%. capacitive with the home button they probably want the best experience possible.

    Apple just redesigned the iPhone last year. Ain't gonna happen just yet if Apple's trend is anything to go by.
