Those seeking the skinny on Apple’s next move in the smartphone arena are likely to be satisfied by the latest rumours emanating from Cupertino which suggest that the tech giant is looking to streamline the next iteration of its flagship phone to a mere 3mm girth.

The diminutive stature handset is just one of a number of concept images purportedly showing designs for the iPhone 6 and follow on from the release of Apple’s ultra-thin iPad Air last year.

Not everything has been shrunk for the new designs however with a larger 5-inch screen also deployed, equivalent in size to that used by rival manufacturers in phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.

Two versions of Apple’s new baby are currently doing the rounds online with one model quoted as being 4.5mm thick whilst another even more ambitious design shrinks to 1.5mm at its most extreme.

These figures compare well to the current iPhone 5S – which weighs in at 7.6mm.

The competing visions were conceived in an unofficial capacity by Fuse Chicken and SET Solutions to show what could be achieved with current technology if pushed to the extreme, but would require the removal of all physical buttons.
