6 concepts we wish the new iPhone would take after

Martin Hajek

Probably the closest to the current iteration of the iPhone, this professionally rendered concept imagines an iPhone that’s really quite possible. It’s all display, except for where the Home button is, so additional icons, like video controls when you’re watching a movie can be moved to the side. We’ll never complain about more screen estate.

And one more

By the same designer comes a Japanese-inspired flip iPhone. Flip phones are apparently still all the rage in the land of the rising sun and they're called 'garakei', thus making this particular version the garakeiPhone. Geddit? Featuring a touchscreen in place of where the number pad would usually go results in a cool current smartphone with nostalgic leanings. We can't picture Apple ever making this reality, but still, we live in hope.
