We have seen several interesting concepts of Apple’s new iPhone.
With WWDC less than 2 days away, folks at French website, Fakeorreality have published another concept of Apple’s new iPhone which looks quite good.
It’s thinner with a larger screen and has a redesigned home button.
In case you missed the earlier concepts of Apple’s new iPhone:
The first one was designed by Mat Brady. He called it iPhone Elite, an iPhone with 60GB of storage, true 16:9 aspect ratio, slide-out keyboard, one megapixel front camera for iChat, and a high quality camera, with good lenses, optical zoom, and video capability.
Folks at Gizmodo fixed the keyboard to make it more compact, removed some unnecessary keys and added a direction pad and two buttons to make the new iPhone a true Nintendo DS competitor. They called their tweaked version iPhone Pro as you can see below:
iPhone – MacBook Inspired:
The second one was designed by Jim Young, and as you can see below was inspired by MacBook. HIs iPhone included 3G, GPS, Front camera for iChat, Removable battery, 3.2 Megapixel camera, Video, 32 GB.
iPhone – MacBook Air Inspired:
The latest concept of Apple’s new iPhone is designed by Rodolphe Desmare. As you can see from the curves and tapering that it has been inspired by MacBook Air.
Most Probable Evolution:
The name says it all, this concept is “a flatter, even more tapered and slender version of the current one.”
The only thing that worried me about this concept is that it might be too thin to fit the 3.2 megapixel camera sensors which we had heard Apple had placed orders for.
Here is the latest concept of Apple’s new iPhone.
Thinner, Larger screen & Redesigned Home button:
The latest concept published by FakeorReality is thinner with a larger screen by maximizing the space available with a redesigned home button and repositioning the ear speakerphone. The concept also seems to have a back cover with matte finish.
I like this one the most of all the concepts we have seen so far.
But I still have couple of issues with it (a) the larger screen
would be nice but won’t be practical as it would be too cumbersome for
iPhone app developers to redesign their apps for the larger screen and
(b) I also don’t like the position of the home button.
What do you think about these concepts? Which one do you like? Would you be disappointed if the new iPhone isn’t radically different from the current iPhone?
Egypt was the first to point us to the latest iPhone concept, thanks Egypt!
