This iPhone 7 dream concept is as fantastical as they get

This iPhone 7 dream concept is as fantastical as they get
What does the phone of your dreams look like?

Imagine it for a second and then come back to reality: do you see any device that would fulfill that dream?

While dreaming up of that mystery gadget, Ukraine-based designed Herman Haidin came up with a fantastical concept that carries some resemblance to reality... until you start reading the actual specs.

This iPhone 7 concept imagines a future, where Apple has completely done away with physical buttons and ports in favor of wireless connectivity interfaces. What is the benefit of that in this fantastical concept? Well, an imagined iPhone 7 thickness of just 3mm. That is, of course, thinner than reality allows at the moment: the slimmest of phones max out at around 5mm thickness, while mass market devices like the iPhone measure around the 7mm mark to be considered very slim.

Hey, if dreamy stuff is what you're looking for, then how about this concept also having a 5" front AND rear screen, plus a 16-nanopixel camera. Whatever that means! Check out the whole thing right below and share your thoughts about the ideal phone in the comments right below.

This guy definitely want to be seen and asked to work for Apple. Not a bad thing, but this concept is just a fan one. Technology at his moment doesn't allow to made such device. Maybe iPhone 10. Maybe.

i think to disagree, it's about the cost. waterproofing, 16mp cameras, 2 speakers, wireless charging, just remove the home button for the full screen.

Apple(Samsung, Lg and others as well) could make a phone with those specs, it would just cost them money that they aren't willing to spend. The battery life would be horrible but hey at least it would look cool lol.

With 3 mm thickness, these will be a cool new feature. It's called wall power. Apple will market it as innovation as they have managed to move the battery to the charger itself. In all seriousness though, this designer is not practical. Anyone can dream all this stuff, it's just not happening.

I feel like anyone who says they want a zero-bezel phone has no idea that with no bezels, our hands will always be touching the phone. Silly concept, the only reason it's here is cuz he has some experience in 3D Max and PS, but even the design and advertising is non-Apple.

Sure all people seem to do on this site is bitch about bezels on phones. (Not saying you are though)

Zero bezels doesn't mean by definition that the sides will be touch sensitive.

Heard about palm rejection?

And there is that too. Just trying to make a point that zero bezels shouldn't be a problem for incidental touches

yeah right, just someone with lots of free time and some CAD skill.. designing his personal dream concept while ignoring technology... iPhone 7 that he use as concept name is just excuse to get more attention, while all people know that iPhone 7 have no chance to come close to that concept.. at this rate, lets just make phone concept with built-in time machine...

3mm thickness That would make the iPhone 6 Plus and Nexus 6P seems like Nokias in terms of durability

3mm thin = new ports for everything = more money for Apple.

I don't want some featherweight phone that'll blow out of my hand at the first gust of wind.

Exactly for articles like this, I use ad block in phonearena. They don't deserve to make any money from me if they make such nonsense articles.

The funny part is that this concept has screens on both sides with thinnest body possible. It doesn't have any room for all interior hardware. I can't wait to see how apple could build such an iToy. Concepts are always nice to look at, but designers never think about the technology.
