Is a curved screen in the works for the next iPhone? Sonny Dickson

Though you can make-your-own Apple iPhone 6 rumor, you can go a more traditional route and pay attention to noted leaker of Apple products, Sonny Dickson. He tweeted photos claiming to show mock-ups of the iPhone 6 with a new and notably curvaceous design.

Dickson shared images of the purported front and back of an iPhone 6 dummy and, since rumors of the next Apple smartphone brandishing a curved screen have been floating around for some time, the leak is excitingly convincing. The curved screen in the photo is mostly notable thanks to a reflection of light seen on the left side, but the photo of the rear shows the new rounded design more prominently.

The latest rumors lead us to believe there will be more than one iPhone released later this year, including a larger 5.5-inch model. The curved screen rumor piggybacks off of current smartphones rocking the fresh design and, with Apple's tendency to pack existing cutting-edge technology into their new devices and marketing them as breakthrough wonders, I wouldn't put it past them.

The leaked images of the iPhone 6 dummy look rough around the (curved) edges, but Dickson's reputation for truthy rumors precedes him, giving the speculation as much credibility as you can give a rumor. Do you think these photos are real? How do you feel about the next iPhone offering a curved screen? Let us know in the comments.
