It wouldn’t be a day with a ‘y’ in it if there wasn’t a brand new iPhone concept doing the rounds, and the latest comes courtesy of designers Ivo Marić and Tomislav Rastovac who have shown us what the iPhone 7 may look like.
With the iPhone 6s expected to arrive in Apple Stores some time in September, the current leaks and photographs of parts has the next iPhone looking very much like the iPhone 6 that is currently on sale. Given past experience of Apple’s tick-tock product cycle, that makes plenty of sense, but it also means that next year should see an all-new iPhone hit the market, and one that will see Apple come up with a new industrial design to boot. This concept shows what Apple could bring to market with that phone next year, though as ever, it’s largely guesswork. Still, it doesn’t make it any less fun to speculate!
The hardware that this concept puts forth looks more like an iPhone 5s than an iPhone 6 in the way it looks around the edges, thanks to the external antenna configuration that we have all become accustomed to. The iPhone 6’s slightly curved edges remain however, and the resulting concept looks absolutely gorgeous. Of that, there is no doubt at all.
Internally, this concept makes provisions for wireless charging, an A10 processor and a sapphire glass with Quad HD display that would make your eyes bleed. There’s no mention of a Touch-ID sensor being built into the screen, but if there’s one thing we would like to see that’s it – though wireless charging isn’t far off the top of the list either, if we’re being brutally honest.
As lovely as this concept is though, it’s worth remembering that that’s exactly what it is and there is little to suggest any of these features or design will make it onto Apple’s iPhone 7. That won’t stop us from lusting over this particular concept though, particularly because we still think the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s are two of the best looking iPhones to date.
