iPhone 5 - what will it look like?

iPhone 5 - what will it look like?


There's a lot of 'information' out there on what the new iPhone 5 will look like - be it larger screens, coloured backs or a whole glut of new technology tagged on the back.

However, while there's (unsurprisingly) nothing in the way of a genuine leak from Apple when it comes to the iPhone 5, there's a wealth of content from fans trying to guess/hint what the new iPhone will look like.

We've sifted through the wheat and dropped the chaff - here's our gallery of images we think show the most likely design of the iPhone 5 (or just things that would clearly never happen, but come on... it's cool).



And here's what everyone else came up with...

This is the pick of the bunch - a very impressive render based on all the iPhone 5 rumours collated so far. The two tone back and sleek design from Martin Utrecht are so on message that a number of sites were fooled into thinking this was THE new iPhone. It's not though. Don't get excited.

We're fans of this design not because it's likely to happen, but more because it will appeal to the Apple fanboys of the world. It's basically the unholy fusion of a Magic Mouse and an iPhone (with more than a nod to the much-fabled iPhone HD) from Ciccarese Design.

Although if it did double as a mouse, you'd have to pray that's going to be the next generation of Gorilla Glass protecting the screen.

This is the most 'normal' of all the renders we've chosen here, and for that very reason we're happy to state that if Apple goes in a new direction with the iPhone 5 design, this could very well be close to the mark with a more rounded-yet-industrial design.

However, it does look a bit like a Sony Ericsson Satio, which is a BAD THING. Although we do like the smorgasbord of colours here from NAK.

What's this?A phone with a smart cover? That makes a lot of sense. The rest of the concept is a little on the bland side (although you should check out the full range over on Concept-Phones) with a more angular design, but we love this cover notion.

We love this concept for one reason: the idea of incorporating the home button into a dock at the bottom of the screen. Would it work in practice? Probably not, as it would only be relevant for the home screen and engineering that into an LCD panel would be a pain in the posterior.

But we're in concept land here - there are no limitations, so kudos to ADR Studios for a decent range of ideas on the next iPhone.

And to that end, here's the ultimate in concepts for the iPhone - a video from Aatma that comes up with the idea of projecting a keyboard from the iPhone using a laser.

Make. This. Happen.
