10 noteworthy iPhone 5 concepts
iPhone 5 concepts come a dime a dozen, which is not surprising given the hype that is building up around the highly anticipated smartphone. Most of them, however, are so uninspiring that nobody really pays attention to them. Other concepts, on the other hand, stand out by either being exceptionally stylish, or being exceptionally ridiculous, which helps them to make a few rounds through the interwebs. Well, both kinds can be found in our slideshow below, where we've put together 10 interesting iPhone 5 concepts that we think you should check out. Is there a particular iPhone 5 concept that you wish would become real one day? Let us know in the comments!

these concepts are the hardest to make. you can't do much with a small screen, a single button, an Apple logo and all and still spell out iPhone.

too bad these designers make good concepts, but Apple will never make them.

check out my renders too at bfconcepts.tumblr.com :) hahaha.

Here's what we have to do....move on!! Actually liked both of NAK's design. Apple should take a look at these renders!! It'll give them ideas better than what the new iphone is supposed to look like...downright ugly!!!

I kind of like the look of the Magic Mouse design but I think it'd be horrible to ever set down.

NAK design look pretty good... but the only thing is, if they go that route, they'll get another rectangular design patent without the round edges. Then it'll be good luck NOKIA.

The third and eighth concepts look refreshing and new. Maintaining the Apple-look with newer design. Although the fourth one is nice even, but a Lumia ripoff.

And here, Apple's just elongating the 4S (According to leaks). -_-

3 is what i was hoping for iPhone 5 , 1 is just unreal, and 6 if one drop on its side would destroy the screen

i like 3, 7, 8 also

5 reminds me of the palm pre design, kinda cool

6 would be cool but they would have to make a switch on the side to disable screen touch or something
