This is one gorgeous iPhone concept

This is one gorgeous iPhone concept
We have all seen our fair share of concept device renders, such as the iPhone with the holographic display and the laser keyboard. This concept known as the iPhone SJ by Antonio De Rosa, founder of ADR Studio is perhaps the most attractive of them all.

Even though he doesn’t divulge into the tech specs of the concept, with the exception of the A6 processor and an improved camera, the design of the phones chassis is enough to make us look past that. The concept is definitely that of a larger iPhone that features an edge-to-edge display. The whole front of the iPhone SJ is capacitive which goes along with the rumors of an elongated home button that would feature touch gestures.

The body of the iPhone SJ is made of the lightweight yet incredibly durable polycarbonate material. The design itself appears to be incredibly thin, much thinner than the already svelte iPhone 4S. There is only so much that can be said about the concept dubbed “A Classic, Reinvented,” so take a look at the photos for yourself and tell us what you think.

Edge to edge screen. We will have even more people pissed at how easy this screen cracks. As it is now everyone hates by the smallest of drops the edges are cracked. You make the edges part of the screen and all Apple isdoing is screwing there customers. Wait there already do that by lying about break though technolgy that for any one with computer knowledge know is old tech. Apple makes money off of people ignorance and bliss.

Iphone 5. Im waiting for a huge change on the next generation. I was so down with the iphone 4s ( I was expecting more, and I know Im not the only) But if the design comes to something similar I will buy the phone 40% sure. Missing the Specs

It's a phone -box- , what do you expect? A headset that holographically displays a phone in mid air? Get real.

So what this designer did was 1) cut an iphone4/s in half, 2) blend in features from the Nokia N9/Lumia 800 (polycarb & rounded taper from the main planes of the front and rear to the sides), and calls it done? Boring. It stil looks uncomfortable to hold, the gaps on the side still look like it was made from a kit, and the black and metal design is really looking quite dated. Where's the innovation?

it seems like a bold 9900 with bigger screen ... personally i found the bold 9900 the most beautifull phone in the market with great matterials so i hope for the iphone 5 to look like the 9900 ...

I think this concept is really nice depending how it feels in my hand which I would be sure (well not so sure now Steve is gone) that apple will make any iPhone great materials but I would like to see any phone look like this it's nice. I wish my galaxy nexus was built like this minus the single button which I hop apple make into a multifunction button. Anyway I love my nexus but the build could have been a little more high end on the material part(I still think it looks nice and feels great but plastic kinda feels cheap now matter how you make it look and feel) because that's where smart phones on the high end should be going and I wish samsung cop pied apple on that part

Agreed, although the n9's design is somewhat a revelation buying it now is kinda pointless since its own maker killed it before even launching it into the public. . .

How can this be considered "gorgeous"? It looks like crap. Pancake crap.

do you really think it's that bad? What would you change about it just out of curiosity?

Amazing LOOKING phone. Nothing about Blackberry OS is amazing and no amount of pretty phones can change that.

Sorry, you just missed the fat n chubby but "beautiful inside" phones...they went back home to Seriously dude, I will (very) likely never own an Apple product and even I say this render is gorgeous. To each his own but for someone to say this looks like "crap"...just comes off same as pen0r envy...

So is it suppose to be smaller and fatter for the 5? Because they went larger screen and thinner and that seem to not work for you.

It could look like the Palm Pixie, and if Apples.logo on it, it would sell enough to pay off the next three Transformers movies. And I hate those movies.......
