One of the most prolific designers I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in action, design-wise is Bob Freking and now he’s back with a fresh concept. It’s the 10th anniversary Touch Bar iPhone, a model that comes in Ceramic White, with a fresh design and thinner bezels. But it doesn’t end here!
A design upgrade is certainly needed, since the iPhone 7 is not very different from the iPhone 6 at its core. This anniversary edition concept phone made by Bob Freking has an OLED display, a virtual Home button and it’ll offer the Apple Watch 2 ceramic finish as a color option. We may also get a dual camera on the standard version of the phone, not only the Plus one.
The Touch Bar bit is really interesting, as this mechanism gets borrowed from the latest MacBook Pros and transplanted on the phone. Said bar may well be included in the lower half of the device, perhaps where the old Home button was. These so called iPhone 7S and 7S Plus models are said to have a 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch Retina OLED screen, plus a Touch Bar with Force Touch and Touch ID.
Inside we’ll find the Apple A11 Fusion quad core CPU, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and then there’s a dual 12 MP back camera with OIS and a six element lens. The 7 MP FaceTime camera is kept from the iPhone 7 and the water resistant design also makes the cut. Some great ideas right here, but it still feels like Apple would be playing it safe. Where’s that curved OLED screen?
