It seems that designers are more keen on making iPhone 6 concepts rather than iPhone 5S models, but not Alvaro Toledo, who focused on the 5S. He created an iPhone 5S concept, with a discretely curved design.

The new model is thinner, lighter and offers more screen estate, from what I can see. The back seems rather glossy, so I suspect it’s glass, ceramic or maybe some new type of metal. While most of you think that this design is new, in reality, it’s quite similar to the one of the HTC One, if you look at the main curve of the phone’s body.

Having held a HTC One in my hand, I can assure you it has great ergonomics, so this would be a great idea for the next iPhone. One little objection here: the front camera is a tad too big and so is the earpiece… What do you think of this iPhone 5 concept?
