Fan-made Apple iPhone 7 renders envision several new design features


Lately, there has been a bit of controversy regarding what Apple could have in store for its 2015 iPhone line-up. While many suggest that Apple will follow tradition and release similarly-looking iPhones with updated internals later this year, others suggest that the Cupertino-based manufacturer will break its pattern and jump straight to the iPhone 7 series. Whichever turns out to be the case, the next-generation iPhones are probably still a long way off. However, this hasn't stopped designer Martin Hajek from creating some stunning renders of what Apple's iPhone 7 could look like. 

The main attraction of these fan-made iPhone 7 renders is a redesigned home button, one that is imagined to be part of the display. Apple was recently awarded a patent for a technology that allows a fingerprint-sensing layer to be integrated under the display, and this probably served as the basis for the designer's imagination.

Other iPhone 7 design features imagined by the German designer include a front panel dominated by the display. The bezels are kept to a bare minimum, including here the top bezel, which houses the front-facing camera and the proximity sensor. The designer also imagined an illuminated Apple logo on the back, envisioning that this could be deactivated by the user from the settings. Based on Apple's acquisition of smart camera company Linx, the designer also imagined that the iPhone 7 could come with a dual-lens camera setup on the back. 

These fan-made Apple iPhone 7 renders were created by designer Martin Hajek for German tech blog ComputerBild.de:

The only thing that relates to my comment is number 4, and I like it "visually", not practically. How ironic your are not the one thinking rationally, read comment #17 and get on with your life.

It's a concept you damn fool! Do you even understand the meaning of "concept"? Log off, and go get some breast milk from mommy.

Exactly, It's a concept. The guy who made this could have done a bezel free phone, an onscreen button, but used haptic feedback so it feels like a button being pressed. Plus loads more. It's nicely rendered, but it is a lazy concept which does not take after iPhone's design language at all, besides the bottom speakers. Recently, you cry a lot at other people on this website mister.

Simona sounds like a "girls" name.... She's probably German so English would be her second language... She has been a member here longer than YOU. Barkkjedii Even SamDH1, who have only been a member of PhoneArena for a couple of weeks have figured you out... "You cry a lot at other people on this website mister". Barkkyboy this is not YOUR website alone... Many here wish YOU would GO away, with your near 15,000 useless posts! O.o

Full of crap. Let's see: 1." Ancient button" in the middle? - You do realize that till today, the BEST-SELLING models STILL come with a Physical Home Button do you? The Galaxy S6? Galaxy Note 1 to 4? The Entire range of Galaxy series phones? All the iPhones up to iPhone 6/6+? Is it any surprise both Samsung and Apple are the biggest mobile makers as well? Models that came with touch buttons situated in the display aren't selling like hot cakes FYI. Goes to show majority of folks out there still prefer a physical home button. Even best-selling models from Xiaomi also have capacitive buttons at the bottom and not in the screen. I wouldn't want touch buttons to take up my screen space. Period. 2. There should be "No Bezel" at all? - The bezels are what define the signature characteristics or the design of a phone model. If everyone uses a No-Bezel design, all phones would look standard. Just a Black Square display screen with a logo and no borders. You might as well go buy the Display Panel and just use it like that. There you go, No Bezels Lmao! As Darkkjedii says, go home and drink some milk instead of coming up with useless expectations and definitions of what makes a perfect phone.
