And here’s yet another iPhone 5 design, this one based on the long time rumored edge to edge display. This time the screen feels as if it’s actually a piece of glass fit between two metal parts, because of the lack of side bezel. Also, looking at the phone from its profile reveals a sort of a mini display, as shown here. The concept was created by
This iPhone 5 concept features a dual core Apple A6 processor, a 9 megapixel iSight camera and iOS 6. iCloud is also in the mix and New Siri as well. The screen diagonal is 4 inches and we’ve got a bunch of new icons to work with. What’s interesting is that in the screen diagonal area it says “4.0 + 0.5″. Is that 0.5 actually the side screen I was talking about or is this a 4.5 inch iPhone? Anyway I love this design and it’s so simple and lacks any unnecessary complications.
Hopefully with so much glass used on it, there’s still room for a decent battery. I remind you that the iPhone 5 is rumored to launch this fall and we could see its OS, iOS 6.0 being previewed next month at WWDC 2012. Excited about that? On the Sira Design page it actually says that I was right and the sides of the device are actually smaller screens, so the device is even cooler!

iPhone 5 concepts, with some recent models being really stunning, but here’s a fresh one, created by [FUSE]Chicken. This iPhone 5 vision involves an elongated Home button and a rectangular design, plus a 4 inch display, a widescreen one actually.
We’ve seen our share of
This iPhone 5 measures 7mm in thickness and has a 10 megapixel iSight camera at the back, plus a 5MP one at the front. The interesting aspect here is the inclusion of quad speakers for stereo in landscape and portrait. The headphone jack was also placed in a central position. I like the metallic edges of this model, but I’m not such a big fan of the volume buttons, that look like those on a toy phone, to be honest. The way the metal area around the device is slightly sloped makes it look like a precious item, a very nice feat.
On a side note, the metallic wire thing that props up the phone in some pictures is also very interesting and elegant. An iPhone like this would be a luxury item, that’s for sure, but will it appeal to real Apple fans? What do you say?

iPhone 6 concept is back with an iPhone 5 design. Chris Youn, from Flushing, New York gives us a next generation Apple handset with a 3D Crystal touchscreen, a 16 megapixel camera and a faster Bluetooth technology on board. It also has a strong 2.6GHz processor and it can provide up to 24 hours of video playback.
The same guy who created this beautiful
This iPhone 5 concept guarantees up to 52 hours of audio playback , so it must have an impressive battery and I wonder how Apple managed to fit that in, but this is a mere design after all. The handset measures 0.38 inches in thickness and its volume buttons are very interesting and futuristic. Notice how the phone appears to get wider at the top and its slightly curved upper and lower edge. Somehow this reminds a bit of the Nokia X7, but with a more rounded approach.
I’m more interested in those cute speakers that are bundled with the phone here, since they look really nice… What do you say?

iPhone 5 concept that you can see below. I was a bit puzzled by the specifications, but I guess some of them make sense… in a way. For starters, we’ve got a dual core 1.9GHz processor… a Samsung A8 that actually makes me think about an Apple A8 CPU. That’s miles away however, since Apple has only reached the A5 generation now…
Alexander Black emailed met yet another
The same iPhone 5 concept comes with a 10 megapixel camera at the back, a 7 megapixel camera at the front and iOS 5 as the main platform. The handset incorporates a 4.5 inch Retina Display, according to the same Alexander Black and there’s also wireless charging enabled on it. A touchpad was integrated at the back much like on the Sony PS Vita console, always a cool addition for gaming.
Last, there’s a 2100 mAh battery and if that’s replaceable we might have a hit here. Some of these feats are a bit futuristic and not well adapted to the modern requirements. For example, who would integrate a 7MP camera at the front for videocalling? I guess we’ll be stuck at a max of 2 or 3MP for another year or two, if you ask me. Also, the Apple A8 will probably be a quad core or 8 core configuration by the time this number is reached. Are we ready for a quad core iPhone?

Finally a different iPhone 5 concept! I’m sick and tired of seeing everyone creating the same edge to edge screen device over and over again, with an 8MP camera, with or without a Home button and a 4 inch display… Alexei Mikhailov is original and brings us an iPhone 5 with an asymmetrical design.
This model integrates the screen very discretely and replaces the volume buttons with a + and – key, while the Home button is still there, but it’s almost invisible. The back side looks very much like the one of the iPhone 4 but the main idea of this device is that it has a more rounded side and a straight side, much like some subway passes I have seen.
The camera seems to use a dual LED flash of sorts. Imagine an iPhone 4 with an edge cut by a precision knife… Pure metal and something original at last!

The web has been abuzz with fresh images of the iPhone 5, that appear to be real and taken fron a French carrier. Now that they’ve been set straight as fake, the pics have been used to create the concept below. One of the guys at MacRumors Forum pulled this off:
This looks like a very thin handset, rumored to be 7mm in thickness, according to sources who actually saw the device. It looks a LOT like the iPhone 4, albeit a bit more rounded at the edges and maybe at the back as well. Turns out that glass will be used at the back in an attempt to gain the old school feel of the older iPhone models.
Would you buy this thinnest smartphone in the world?

How about a realistic iPhone 5 mockup this time around? I’m talking about the one below, created by Gulherme Schasiepen and featuring a 4 inch display that looks like edge to edge material, sticking to the recent rumors about the device.
New antenna locations have been adopted for the device, that’s even thinner now at a mere 0.28 inches. The sensors from the upper part of the handset are now well hidden and practically invisible, in case you’re wondering. As far as the camera goes, you get a main 8 megapixel shooter with full HD 1080p video capture and most likely a potent flash.
At the front of this iPhone 5 there’s a FaceTime HD camera and if you want rumors with your concept, know that the next-gen Apple phone is supposed to come in September in the US and October in Europe. The info comes from a Swisscom executive.

The latest iPhone 5 concept comes from Italy, courtesy of Antonello Falcone, an iSpazio user. He’s an art director in Torino and he based his idea on a bigger display, with a 4.6 inch diagonal and a potential future version of iOS, iOS 5.1.
This iPhone design uses a curved glass display, that reduces the thickness of the device to 8.4mm. On the side we have aluminum frames and a change from the iPhone 4 is the lack of a physical home button, that’s been replaced with a soft touch area. There’s also a dashboard widget on board, that works with the Notification Center.
With a single swipe from bottom to top, you’ll see a panel of widgets, that will be grouped using a transparent dock. The panel will be customizable and in case you’re wondering why these pictures here are so different, the first image above is the final version of the concept, with a 4.3 inch display. Also the camera at the back has been changed, since it resembled the one on Nokia N9 too much.

Right now the thinnest smartphone in the world is a model made by NEC, if I’m not mistaking, but the iPhone 5 concept below takes away the crown, thanks to its slim waistline. This model, made by Alternative Industries measures a mere 4mm in thickness and it looks impressive.
The handset incorporates an edge to edge screen, that actually eliminates the upper and lower edges as well. This iPhone concept integrates the SIM into the device and I’m guessing that we’re dealing with a 4 inch smartphone here, but it’s only speculation right now. With a waistline so thin, should we fear that this phone can break easily?

iPhone 5 concepts that we can’t keep track of them, but now here’s a new one made by Michal Bonikowski. This new model doesn’t bring much of a change to the iPhone 4 and its design reminds me quite a bit of a combo between the iPad 2 and somehow the HTC HD7.
We’ve seen so many
This iPhone 5 is an all metal handset, with an aluminum case, steel frame and most likely a Retina Display with a diagonal increase. Also, we learn that the key features have moved on from mechanical to sensory. I guess that only in September we’ll know how close Michal was to the real thing, but till then we have this concept to glance at.
I have to mention that it’s one of the few models not to adopt the edge to edge display idea, that has been extremely popular recently on iPhone concepts.
