The iPhone 6 is among the most highly-anticipated smartphones of 2014 and designer Sam Beckett has made a concept video of an iPhone Air, based on rumored specifications.

This is not a real depiction of the upcoming flagship smartphone from Apple, but it gives us a glimpse of how the iPhone 6 may look like when it officially debuts later this year. Using leaked specifications the next iPhone is rumored to sport, Beckett created a concept video of a beautiful iPhone Air with a large display.

Apple has so far been quite reluctant in offering larger-screen iPhones. Not too long ago the company made a small jump to a 4-inch screen, bumping up the display size from its previous iPhone iterations with 3.5-inch displays. The largest iPhone screen size so far is 4 inches, but Apple is widely expected to finally take the step to a larger display with its 2014 flagship smartphone.

Various recent rumors have tried to anticipate the design and specs of the new iPhone 6, with some reports indicating that the new flagship will be only 8 percent larger than the current iPhone 5S, but would sport a 17 percent larger screen with 68 percent more pixels.

In this new concept video, Beckett has envisioned the iPhone 6 just 7mm slimmer, boasting a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, crammed at a high pixel density of 468 pixels per inch (ppi).

"I wanted to keep the core design of the iPhone very much inline with what customers expect from Apple," Beckett explains, according to The Verge. "I have given the device the title 'iPhone Air' because Apple has demonstrated that they think the iPhone is a mature enough device to warrant two versions (5S and 5C) and I believe more distinctive branding, much like the iPad Mini and Air will help to reinforce the two product line. Some extra space could be potentially utilized by reducing the width of the side bezels and by also slimming down the top and bottom of the phone frame."

Beckett further envisioned the iPhone Air with a faster Apple A8 chip, as well as a powerful 10-megapixel rear camera. Keep in mind, however, that this is a concept video, and is by no means a depiction of a real product. Nothing is confirmed so far regarding the iPhone 6, so treat this conceptual design accordingly. That said, watch the video below to see what the iPhone 6, or iPhone Air, may look like.
