Beautiful iPhone 7 concept video dreams of a mirror finish

Beautiful iPhone 7 concept video dreams of a mirror finish
We showed you one wacky iPhone 7 concept the other day, but this next one, rendered by Jermaine Smith, is on the other side of the spectrum. It doesn't introduce revolutionary, but quite unbelievable design language for the next iPhone, building strong on the current design hints instead.

As you can see in the video below, the graphics artists has tried to solve Apple's screen-to-body ratio puzzle by shrinking the home key, while keeping its signature round shape, plus the bezels have been shrunk all around in general. The seemingly improved screen-to-body ratio would be a welcome change, and the mirrored finish on the back suggested a new premium material for the housing.

The iPhone 7 concept is also equipped with USB Type-C connector, and a 16 MP camera with optical image stabilization, though both of these are unlikely to materialize, knowing Apple's typical upgrade schedule. The iPhone 7 will likely keep the 12 MP sensor from the 6s, perhaps only adding an OIS system to it, plus the trademark Lightning connector seems to be here to stay for a long time. Another improbable development is the AMOLED display listing, which, according to analysts, will be a wishful thinking for an iPhone at least for the next few years. That's still a concept, though, and beautifully rendered at that, so anything goes before the iPhone 7 becomes a reality.

Okay let me tell you, an iphone 1.2 MP Front facing Camera takes better pictures than an LG Front facing 8 MP camera. And I've tested this in real life. MP mean nothing.

Why should i take your word for it, when facts speak louder 8mp > 1.2mp from a hardware aspect unless the front camera sensor is bigger which i don't believe is. Another thing there are many phones from different brands that offer 8 mp, so if your experience with the LG device(which device) is bad, doesn't speak for the other devices.

Apple and it's followers (biased tech sites) were bashing Sammy's AMOLED for 'cartoonish' and inaccurate color reproduction. Now that the latest SAMOLEDs have humiliated the so-called Retina accuracy, Apple intends to swith to AMOLED? Probably Sammy's, since they supply displays to Apple. Oh, 16MP? Heck why did they switch to 12MP since "high megapixels do not matter" (as per PA when awarding iPhone6 the best smartphone of 2014)??? Then... some 2 years ago" More RAM is a gimmick" -> now they switch to 2GB and you praise the additional RAM's benefit it! Some 5 years ago: "No one is going to buy a big phone" -> now 5.5 inches and iFans are lusting after it like a kid in the candy store. When will Apple's hypocrisy end? *sigh*

Hypocrisy is the only thing that is consistent when it comes to Apple and their hardcore fans. It can't end.

Just looks like a iPhone 4/4s & 5/5s combined in a bigger form factor. I don't think Apple is going back to flat sides again anytime soon since they always state how comfortable the round edges are to hold.

They also said no one's going to buy a big phone and 4" screen is common sense 'cause your thumb can reach all corners easily...then they made the iPhone 6+.
