Concept renders of the next iPhone transform rumors into art
come around September.
The first concept has been posted on Yanko Design, and is from Michal Bonikowski. While it doesn't really follow all rumors to the letter, it still gives preference to the one that says Apple will dispose with the fragile and easily-scratched glass back for some sort of metal, although an entire aluminum sheet as in the concept seems unlikely since it will prevent signal from penetrating properly.
The other one, from the designer Antonello Falcone, is bolder, suggesting a 4.6" edge-to-edge display with curved glass edges that could allow a reduction in the thickness of the device down to 8.4 mm. The designer ditches the infamous iPhone 4 frame, which is replaced by two strips of aluminum on the sides, and he also transforms the home button to soft touch capacitive one.
He didn't stop with the hardware, though, and drew an imaginative concept of "Dashboard widgets", for an imaginary iOS 5.1 update, that reverses the iOS 5 Notification Center idea. Be reversing we mean you slide from bottom to top from the dock, and call a panel full of widgets, not like now, where both widgets and notifications are cluttering the Notification Center panel.
The widgets are listed each with its transparent dock, that displays the name of the widget and a live icon. The same bottom to top slide movement opens it in its full glory from this transparent panel, which is fully customizable. The guy demonstrates the concept in the renders above with a Google search widget. How do you like them Italian designs?
