Apple launched the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus a couple of months back with an all-new design, curved edges, and more. Popular designer Martin Hajek created concept mockups of how Apple could evolve the iPhone 6’s design for the next-generation iPhone 7.
The concept designs show an iPhone with almost no bezels, which would lead to a reduction in physical size without decreasing the screen size. The first few designs show an edge-to-edge display with reduced top and bottom bezels, and the rest show a design where the display takes up the entire front face of the iPhone.
To reduce the bezels, Hajek has moved the speaker at the top, and has got rid of all extra space at the top and bottom of the home bottom.
No Bezels at all
The designs above are not as radical as what you’ll see below. Hajek’s next set of concepts explores the possibility of the iPhone 7’s display taking up the entire front panel. The home button would remain as it is, but the area around it would be used for Control Center toggles:
Here’s a comparison of the two concepts, along with the iPhone 6:
It’s unlikely that Apple launches an iPhone with holes in the display. The company however might be considering an iPhone design with narrower edges, as most Android manufacturers are using the same strategy to include huge displays without considerably increasing the physical size of the phone.
Let us know what you think of the concepts in the comments below.
