Apple iPhone 7 concept video imagines a grown-up handset with ultrathin bezels

This year's iPhone 6s is old story in Rumorland, so let's switch over to the iPhone 7, said one concept phone designer, and created the video you see below. By now, most everything important about the iPhone 6s has been tipped - it will (naturally) come in the chassis of the iPhone 6, but built with the much tougher 7000-series aluminum alloy.
a higher display resolution, and a Force Touch screen tech, as confirmed by Bloomberg, allowing the panel to recognize different levels of pressure applied by your fingertips, distinguishing between a light tap and a continuous press, just like on the Apple Watch. The phone is also expected to get a mighty boost in the camera department, with a 12 MP camera that comes with an RGBW sensor for better color reproduction and low-light performance.It will eventually have
This is all fine and dandy, but if the exterior stays the same, as usual with Apple's bi-annual design upgrades, what can we expect from the iPhone 7, or whatever Apple decides to name it next year. Well, according to the concept designer SCAVidsHD, it will resemble a MacBook exterior, and come with a single rear camera with 16 MP resolution and OIS technology, plus an 8 MP frontal shooter. Despite that we are talking the iPhone 7, the artist has pegged the screen to be 5.5 inches - as big as on the current iPhone 6 Plus, but with much narrower bezels, which would make it more palm-friendly. Naturally, it will be running iOS 10, which by that time should be the law of the land. What do you think, is there a chance that Apple would release its bread-and-butter model with such a large display, if it achieves a stellar screen-to-body ratio?

Agreed! I love the simplistic approach to the iPhones design, although they could make the top bezel a little smaller.

Some concepts are ugly in pictures but looks very good in actual. I thought ZTE Nubia Z9 was ugly but their zero bezel side and the comfort on hand was awesome. Vice versa when I saw htc m9 and lg g4, I think they have ugly inconvenient to hold handsets.

I like the back .. I like when back is nice metal and 100% (no stupid lines no glass dividers etc) But what I criticise is that stupid home button ! why still physical home button It is now 2015 where ''touch'' must be used on 100%

Not all people and sexy-arse chick models appreciate physical buttons. And seriously, you appreciate the design? WTF? Well your opinion. I wont judge.

If only Apple found a way to shrink the bottom bezel of the iPhone and not interfere with TouchID...

it's very likely that apple may get rid of the home button to shrink bezels, but the placement of camera makes no sense. in order to make it even thinner, the camera module would need to go back to the top corner to fit the battery. i think it's very likely that apple will retain the curve design as the existing model with screen wrapped around the edges since they've already invested so much in such design

the iphone never ever look like this iphone got a bad screen to body ratio how can it jump to bezel less? and still got problem with side protection and also bezel less size sucks cause it can f**k up your screen well for now.

And that's why you can't (or won't) enjoy what you have right now in your hand... already drooling over something that hasn't been invented yet, and to top it all, with insanely high-over-the-roof expectations...

PhoneArena... You got this click. This will be the last click ever for a concept article. And, the next two articles I see that I actually find interesting I will refrain from clicking on, just to make up for it. Once upon a time, this site posted material worthwhile to mobile tech for unbiased informative reviews (not always, but more than the current trend), but now? Just click bait, troll bait, reposted adverts. For shame PA, for shame!
