News about the forthcoming Apple iPhone 5 continues to ramp up despite the fact that all we really know about it so far is based on rumors, leaks and speculation. Whilst we like to pass on all the latest developments to our readers we’ve also taken some time to look at some of the amazing concept designs out there for the next iPhone and today we have another iPhone 5 concept that looks pretty realistic.
While some of the previous mockup designs we’ve looked at have been absolutely beautiful to look at, many of them have featured specs that are wildly optimistic to say the least. You can see just some of the examples here, here and here. In fact yesterday we noted that some of these ideas serve to raise expectations of the next iPhone so high that whatever eventually arises cannot live up to what has been hyped. It’s quite refreshing then to see a concept iPhone 5 that has made a stab of being feasible.
The design we’re looking at today comes from Toby Kick of iTopnews.de and was brought to our attention by iDownload Blog. We think it looks really quite stylish and Apple could do worse that to take note of this slimmer design. As you might expect from the growing expectations that the iPhone 5 will have a larger screen, this design includes a 4-inch Retina display and also an aluminum reverse along with 4G LTE connectivity. As you can see then this latest concept has many of the specs and features that are widely rumored rather than diving into the realms of fantasy.
Where this design differs from current speculation though is that instead of being taller than the current iPhone as has been speculated, this one is wider and features an extra row of icons. It also features an enlarged status bar at the top of the display which we think would be pretty good but unlikely all the same. When all’s said and done though we think this is one of the most realistic iPhone 5 concepts we’ve seen so far and we’ve seen a lot of them!
We’d like to receive your comments regarding this latest iPhone concept so please do send them in. Would you like the real deal to look like this? Maybe you’re already expecting more from the next iPhone and would be disappointed if this were an accurate representation? Either way, why not let us know your thoughts on this.
