New iPhone renderings created by French Apple website Nowhereelse.fr and graphic designer Martin Hajek were released on the internet earlier this month.
The renders were based on leaked schematics posted up by Japanese magazine MacFan and the dimensions of the alleged case for the device that surfaced in the beginning of last week.
The iPhone in the new image is a thin smartphone with rounded corners. The power button is located along the upper right side of the device and rectangular volume controls are featured on it that are similar to the fifth-generation iPod Touch.
The case render displays cutouts for the new design changes and also has holes for the camera flash and Apple logo on the rear.
They also include a 5.5-inch model that has the same design as the 4.7-inch version.
The iPhone 6 price could be raised to $300 for customers purchasing the device through AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.
A new report reveals that Apple is currently negotiating with wireless carriers to raise the on-contract price of the flagship smartphone from $200 to $300. Claims analyst Peter Misek reported the information through StreetInsider. Carriers are reportedly having a rough time coming up on the price, according to the report.
"The possibility may at first seem far-fetched in light of investor concerns regarding possible carrier subsidy and handset price cuts due to smartphone saturation and lack of differentiation," said Misek. "But we think this general lack of differentiation could be the reason why Apple may be able to get a price-increase. Carriers realize that the iPhone 6 will likely be the only headline-worthy high-end phone launched this year and that they will lose [subscribers] if they do not offer it."
Apple is expected to launch two different iPhone models this year including 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch models. The company seems to be releasing two different models to better compete with Samsung, who has enjoyed much success with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S5.
