If the Apple iPhone 6s and the 3GS had a baby: this new iPhone 7 concept evokes pure nostalgia

Who doesn't love a good-looking device concept? We surely do, despite that concepts are usually far from the truth and represent the wishful thinking of an artist. But hey - we enjoy these, and we think that you might enjoy one of the newer concepts we came across. 

Created by Arthur Reis, it makes us feel a bit nostalgic by mixing old with new: the front of conceptual device is unmistakably iPhone 6/6s, while the back of the device is taken from older iPhone devices like the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS, which sported flushed, rounded edges at the back. Well, we are quite pessimistic that Apple might actually go back to its roots and come up with such a design for the iPhone 7, but one never knows. Still, we are not holding our breath.

That's a pretty cool way of mixing things up, and is definitely not the first concept to do so. Actually, one of our favorites combined design cues from the iPhone 6 with the iPhone 4/4s. It had a flat metal frame encompassing the handset, a glass back, and iPhone 6-like front — definitely stunning! 

Unfortunately, we have not come across any credible design leaks for the iPhone 7 and we are not sure as to how it will look like. At this point, we are expecting Apple to unveil the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus in September later this year, but the rumor mill is definitely not fast asleep. On the contrary, it has already churned out a hefty amount of rumors regarding the anticipated phones. You can check them out in our extensive iPhone 7 and 7 Plus rumor review.

Thanks for the tip!

The more and more I look at it, I am losing interest. Maybe if it was a matte metal finish, not the shiny metal, it may look better.

I Don't Like It, Just Looks The 3gs And 4th Gen iPod Touch To Me. I Liked That One Concept That Looked Like The 5 and 6 Combined.

I prefer matte plastic to the glossy polycarbonate plastic.

Wow, just a few words of criticism about the iPhone, Phonearena instantly erased my comment and even sent me a warning. LoL If I'm not wrong, I used to see some readers here said this is iPhonearena, but I still wasn't convinced enough. Now I'm clear that this site is run/paid by Apple... I think I'll have to leave this biased and unprofessional site.

That's the comment you're worried about? There's nothing factual or interesting about it - It's trolling 100%. They remove my comments all the time (and my comments were not as stupid as yours was) - they should remove a lot more considering their rules. I guess there's so much trolling they can't get them all.

You're such a crybaby... Boo-hoo PA is biased, they removed my "Apple sucks" comment. They remove my and many people's comments all the time - grow the hell up - it's their site - you don't like it - leave. You think you're in entitled to something here?

You guys really do think that Tim Cook reads your comments and freaks out that because of your stupid rant they will loose revenue, call up PA and ask them to remove it before Apple is doomed? Seriously?

Please leave. No user here cares if you visit or not, especially when you're crying in the comment section

I actually like the design especially with the lack of protruding camera. Now if that body translated to containing a larger battery then I'm on board.
