iPhone 8 concept shows lavish all-screen metal & glass tribute to the original iPhone

iPhone 8 concept shows lavish all-screen metal & glass tribute to the original iPhone
Designer Martin Hajek is your go-to guy when it comes to the flashiest, snazziest concepts of upcoming smartphones imaginable. Somehow, many of them appear perfectly plausible, too – if you drop the larger than life bloom that's part of his signature style and most 00s video games

It's about time the Haj had a fair shake at the upcoming Apple iPhone, particularly the 10 Year Anniversary Model with all-screen front that's supposedly in development together with two iPhone 7s phones for the less adventurous types.

The shiny pics are available below and we have to say, we're quite fond of replicating the original iPhone's Gray-Black color scheme. Look at the gory details – there's even finger grease!

Reportedly, Apple is doing something in a similar style to honor the iPhone that launched 10 years ago and ruined feature phones for everybody. It had this exact clownfish and jellyfish wallpaper, too! Hajek also honored the rumors of a stainless steel frame and glass back, making for an all-around informed showing. More iPhone 8 rumors here!

Apple could certainly pull of a design like this if it gets the under-glass fingerprint scanner tech sorted out in time. Samsung couldn't and had to make do with a finger scanner whose placement on the Galaxy S8 is... less than ideal. We can't say we like the larger top bezel, though. Go all-screen or bust! We also hope Apple chooses a subtler shade of pink than Martin did, because the iPhone's refined shape and the ditzy Barbie look don't really vibe together.

Now, let's shut up and leave you with the renders already. There's actually 36 of them, so if you're really into Martin's vision, head to Computer Bild and check out the rest.

If that is the next iPhone, Apple should fire Johny Ive or whoever the design lead is.

Fandroids are more excited about an ugly iPhone 8 concept than apple users, it's so pathetic, the comment section on this kind of articles is like an IQ meter for android users, I can tell many of them are below 100 *rolls eyes

I bought iPhone not because I want to show people that I can easily afford them, but because I love iOS- its simple UI and the quality of apps are far way better compared to its Android counterparts. I don't really care about the design, its specification, even its price, and mostly to those people who do thinks iPhone users are dumb. I even love their customer service after sales. That's what makes me sticking with iPhone.

"and mostly to those people who do thinks iPhone users are dumb." Um... Thanks for proving otherwise with this comment /s

They don't understand iOS and apples direction, so their only excuse for buying an iPhone is "to show off". I frankly don't understand this logic. If maybe in some 3rd world country owning a 700-900$ phone is like having a top like BMW or Mercedes here, but in US iPhones are just a good tool that does the job predictably and tied to an ecosystem that half the people prefer.

Stop the fake renders, we all know how the new iPhone will look. The dual camera will be vertical and the screen will expand something like S8 not that perfectly tho. That's all trust me. Tim Cook is ready for the new 'G' phone.

Ugly. I hope Apple doesn't go this route. But u could totally see it after the iPhone 6 and up.

I liked other concepts more than this one. I hope it's still aluminum/metal exterior. Also, I rather have metal Exterior than inductive charging.

I sincerely hope Apple actually puts an interesting spin on their design for the next iPhone, no hyperbole intended.

Just taking an iPhone 6/6S/7 and making it look like that is ugly. Apple needs to fully leave the iPhoen 6 design totally behind. That render is ugly. Something like this -http://images.techtimes.com/data/images/full/285262/iphone-7-and-iphone-8-render.jpg or this -http://www.iphonemode.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/iPhone-8-function-area-concept.jpg Or similar to this -https://techzpedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/uSwitch_iPhone8_render1-1200x577-1.jpg?w=640 If Apple plans for wireless charging, say goodbye to metal backs because you can't do wireless charging with them without a special plastic cover on the back. Since Apple used the iPhone 4 design basically 3 times and the ipHone 5 design 4 times and the iPhone 6 design 3 times, the iPhpne 7S' and the 8 need to be somehting truly new for me to buy it. Anything that remotely looks like the iPhone 7 is garbage. I don;t care how many peopel buy it. The iPhone 6 design is cool and all, but afyter using it 3 times its stale. Much like Samsung's Galaxy design is also boring, because it is used on so many phones and not just the S and Note. At least the edge models bring some difference to the pot. But its only a mater of time before it is offered on another series like the A.

I count two models with the 4 design and three models with the 5 design.

The iPhone 5 is just a 4" version of the iPhone 4/4S. I am putting the iPhone 5 with the 4's and the iPhone 5S, SE and C together. Also the iPhone 4 was resurrected, so that makes 3 times the same design was used. If you prefer that way. To me the iPhone 5 is just a taller iPhone 4. But when it comes to renders, these are the 2 I wished Apple had made. They would have been the perfect iPhone 6 models to me and for the 6S and then for the 7 they could have beveled the sides on the back and front, or made it similar to the iPhone 7 but not as thin. this -http://www.pionero.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/iphone6s_render.jpg http://photocdn.sohu.com/20151210/Img430641958.jpeg

Stop posting iPhone concepts to try and slow s8 sales. I'm sure many other people suspect you have shares in Apple

"If the next iPhone looks this good, I might reconsider life with one kidney" Is this supposed to be funny, Luis D? Please don't tell that you're an iSheep too.
