Our mailbox has been under a barrage for a while now, with a number of iPhone 6 concept videos looking for some air time. Before we even get to those, it should be noted that literally nothing is yet known about the next-gen iPhone, and that's not too shocking, seeing as the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c have just arrived.
Concept videos have always had a certain quality to them – a flare of sorts – that speaks to the inner nerd in us in ways that real product videos just don't. No surprise there – there's still plenty of ground to cover until something along the lines of a wrap-around display is put in commercialization – yet you can perceive the concept of one in its full glory already.
So is this just a load of wishful thinking? Quite possibly, but looking back, outrageous concepts such as those have served as inspiration for humanity's brightest. And when it comes to the iPhone, it really seems like designers all around the world are giving their best shot at a great concept. Let's take a look!

1. Check. Your move, Samsung
An edge-to-edge concept of the iPhone
Unlike most iPhone concepts, this one is a little more daring in that it changes up things considerably, in terms of design -- Apple's holy field.
3. Now you see me
A few great concepts fused together in an epic bomb.
Contrary to most concepts, this one is actually quite simplistic and feels a fair bit more realistic. Take a look!
5. Did someone say the screen is too small?
People have been requesting a slightly bigger screen on the iPhone, and Apple has obliged in a way you wouldn't expect!
6. This is it
If a wrap-around display is ever introduced, this is actually the way we'd expect it too look and work like. Pretty awesome, no?
7. The iPhablet
It's a new world out there, and phablets are everywhere.
8. Not worth living without some 3D action
Seriously, when are 3D cameras becoming a thing?
9. Something different
This one is pretty interesting. It reminds a lot of Apple, yet it's decidedly different. We like it, and so do you!
10. Our personal favorite
Nothing beats taking panoramic photos without having to move your phone.
