Should we call it the iPhone 6, or as Apple claims, the iPhone 5S? Whichever one it is called, Apple is set to release (according to leaks on the internet) a new version of their most popular device yet – the iPhone 5S/6. Just take a look at the video and picture leak below.
Looks cool, doesn’t it?
It is rumored to have a keyboard projector and digital screen projector, but wasn’t the iPhone 5 rumored to have the same before its launch? Is this just weak advertising like was done for the iPhone 5? Or are planning to get serious this time?
It’s also rumored to come with a better camera and processor, and with Near Field Communications (NFC) integrated; and it is also to include fingerprint security. Now these look more realistic to me than holography.
In my opinion though, making a phone with these features isn’t just worth the trouble. Anything is possible, but making a phone with a projectable keyboard? Have you tried tapping your fingers on a hard surface for 2 minutes and noticing what happens to your fingers? Bad idea people. Really bad idea. Projectable keyboards are great, but they are absolutely bad for ergonomics. No No, I’d say.
All these are still unofficial, but the smartphone giants plan to at least say something about this at their next WorldWide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2013 on June 10th.
Will I race to buy an iPhone 5S (or 6) if it is eventually released? Certainly not.

Or like the concept phones in these videos compiled courtesy of Mashble.com
In summary, I just believe that just like the iPhone 5 was a faster version of the iPhone 4, the iPhone 5S/6 will be a better version of the iPhone 5. I expect nothing super or major in the next release. Well, I shall hear more on the June 10 keynote at the conference, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
