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.

Ok, can you tell me why phone with oled screen and wirelles charging and unlock with face, and new name to draw attention 1000 dollar?!! Simply because Apple looks for user pockets.

Congratulations, we don't give a damn. Now find a job... or an English tutor. Which ever one you come across first in your abundant amount of spare time.

Absolutely every phone from every major manufacturer is over priced. Even Samsung. Who cares? If people want to pay it, let them. Why is it your problem? All major corporations look to drain their consumers pockets. You're stupid if you don't think so.

Some other renders have already shown that Apples finger print scanner will be on the back. Plus it will have an Iris scanner as well. Just like the S8.

The iPhone 8 may also have a ceramic body and 3d scanning. It also may have a better screen-to-body ratio. And some of us just prefer iOS to android. No biggie.

Apple owners enjoy all of the services that come with their products. It's an experience rather than just a phone.

That's true. I'm not a fan of this render though.

"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.

"you guys use the word isheep yet every apple article is filled with android fans that are offended...oh the irony." Not sure if this comment is in response to me (PA's comment system is a mess), but if this comment is indeed to me, then point out where I've used the word isheep in every apple article. I almost never do, if at all. Besides, what I'll ever use the word "iSheep" for, is to denote blind and delusional Apple fans... So, normal and rational Apple fans are simply smartphone consumers like any other normal one.

Offended about what? Maybe because sSheeps is stupid. At least Fandroids is pretty cool. iSheep is just an awesome made up word.Its as unique as iPod, iPad, iPhone and iMac.../S lol The problem is, everyone who buys an iPhone or Android phone are not sheep. But it is fair to say that 99% of the iPhone users who come here an post are surely iSheep and maybe 1/2 of the Android users who actually post here are Fandroids. I use both and more. Platform dedication is pointless and stupid. They all have pros and cons and none are perfect, but Android is certainly better in its "pro" department vs iOS. But be fair. Have you ever seen an article where a Android users sold his body part to get a phone? Nope Have you read an article that says Android user did somethign stupid and risky to get a phone? Nope. Notice I never said, that you can't find or no ones has likely ever done it., I simply said, at the vcery least PA has never posted an article showing any did. At least not to my knowledge. But e have read those about iSheep. Right? I mean at least be honest. All platforms I think have their "sheep". But none of them are as arrogant and petty as iSheep though and that is a fact that any other platform user on this planet can verify as fact.

Techie you're the biggest iSHEEP I know - you have complained to have had every conceivable problem with Apple products, yet you keep saying that you buy them. Why the hell would you buy products from a company you hate, and constantly complain that they have every problem with every update with every model. You're a blind isheep and a hypocrite.

*Why the hell would you buy products from a company you hate, and constantly complain that they have every problem with every update with every model." Simple answer: He's a masochist. Complicated R Rated answer: He likes paying Tim Cook and the team responsible for iPhone development to step on him at Tim's summer home every now and again. Jony Ive doesn't get to though... he can only watch from the corner. Word has it that this "routine" had been going strong for years now, and every positive Apple article gives Techie the sensation of Tim's heel gracing Techie's testicles. Fan fiction level shit right here.

No. I've complained of actual problems. Just because I had an issue, doesnt mean everyone will. Guess what, everyone in the world doesnt have cancer. I fail to see how that make it less important to any specific person just because it may not be to you. I dont buy any and every product APple has made. I have some I like. I them all, just not equally. I love all tech and my level of interest in all of iot is 100% equal. For me tech is my drug habit. I dont buy or do drugs, I support my habit of wanting to have the latest gadget or at least have read up on them. You can say whatever you want. As many as I busted you actually being a hypocrite and a blind iSheep, you seem to fail to actually know what one is, since you tried calling me one. How dumb is that? I've never bought products from a company I hate. I own Apple products. The brands I dislike, I dont buy there products. Like I dont buy stuff from Sony. Or similar. Nor do I have too. Yes the fact is, Apple had had a problem with every update which leads to even more updates. A quick at Wikipedia shows this as fact. How many versions of iOS9 have their been dude before iOS 10? And why were they made? Was it not because of all the iOS 9 issues?

If you are ignoring all the offended apple trolls in android articles, then you really are stupid. Fanboys from both sides are equally stupid. Smh

Why not? All the PA writers are iSheeps. Well except for John V who is at Android Authority now. Very smart move on his part. The PA iSheep are so funny. Anyways, I am all for Apple moving to a similar design of the S6/S7/S8 edge models. It would be a nice spin. Because the ioPhone 6 - 7 are all flat and boring and now even moreso look ugly next to the S8. The present iPhone vs the looks of the S6/7 (FLAT) are ok and are a fair andf reasobale device to compare. But comparing a non-edge device to one thnat is, makes them all look dated and boring. I love my red iPhone 7 Plus per se. But as soon as I held it next to the S8's I was like yea, Apple needs to really make a move.

Techie, since we're both Android users, you can at least listen to me: I do not approve the first paragraph of your post #17 which I am replying to. Let's be civil here, come on.
