From wild to plausible: iPhone 7 concept renders that caught our eye

From wild to plausible: iPhone 7 concept renders that caught our eye
Concept renders of popular — usually upcoming — devices have become a sort of a tradition. Sure, most of the time they're just those weird, sometimes even crazy renders of a device that we all know won't ever be reality. Occasionally, however, we get something that looks both appealing and plausible. As in, they don't feature a device with an emergency CO2-powered parachute that is obviously overboard. 

No harm in having a little fun, though, and we'll be the first to admit that we enjoy sifting through artists' works every now and then. Most of what we see is a little too much on the amateur side and so we don't mention it, but at times we get something that we feel compelled to feature. For this selection, we tried to steer clear of the first group as much as possible, and focus on polished works that dream up the way the next iPhone (7) could end up looking like. 

Of course, renders can sometimes flesh out a device for which we have leaked technical drawings. In fact, we've noticed such a trend lately, and the 'leaks industry' has actually scored a few hits already on that front. That in mind, no CAD files were used in the creation of the below works as far as we know, so look elsewhere if you're itching to get a sneak peek into the iPhone 7.

The most unrealistic thing about these concepts are those thin side bezels, have these people ever seen an iPhone?

Why it should be unrealistic ? If there is concept of a CO2 parachute, why not thin bezels ?

4/5S are iconic designs, I hope Apple will come back to that style, 6/6S design is incredibly ugly when you realize that the same company came with iP4 which is still one of best looking phones IMO

Agreed. I believe Apple designs died with Steve Jobs.

I don't agree, i think iphone 5 improved in the design, and is better than 4/4s

They all look too thick, save for maybe number 3. Any concept over 6,9 mm is a big, dishonest, flat-out LIE and completelly off.

The first one that resembles iPhone 4/4S is absolutely gorgeous. I get that metal is more *premium*, but honestly, having been using an S6 Edge and Edge+ for the last few months, I've come to the conclusion that devices with glass on the front/rear and metal frame are top notch in terms of beauty.

Concept No 1 is good and 5,6 is also but No 2 is bad and flop.
