The Verge has obtained documents filed in the Apple vs. Samsung trial which include images of iPad and iPhone prototypes, revealing alternative designs of the product that the company shelved on its way to deliver the final product.
The iPhone prototypes are even more interesting, with the prototype shedding Apple’s trademark roundrect shape in favor of a eight sided polygon. Another prototype shown in the documents bears a great resemblance to the iPhone 4/4S design, the dimensions, however, are very different:

It remains to be see if the 6th generation iPhone will look like the rendering or it is indeed a design that Apple has shelved.
