Love them or hate them, 3D renders give us a taste of what unannounced handsets such as Apple’s eagerly awaited iPhone 5 might look like. As these latest illustrations so capably do.
Most renders can be spotted from a mile off. But following last week’s ‘leaked photos’, which many news outlets, including yours truly were duped into thinking were tangible, it’s become clear that in the intoxicating grip of anticipation, even the best of us can make a boo-boo.
Dutch designer Martin uit Ulrecht, who brought you the recent, photorealistic renders of the black iPhone 5, has released fresh new renders, this time illustrating the white version of the handset. Frankly, if we didn’t know better, they may as well be the real thing.
Of course, they are not. Some might be even relieved, because as great as they look, the actual design of the handset, clearly based on the alleged leaked backpanel from earlier this month, doesn't look like the major overhaul many iFans are hoping for having sat through two generations with same design.
We’ll let you decide for yourself. Do you think these mock-ups are more or less what you’re expecting from the sixth-generation iPhone? Or do they look too similar to the current design? Let us know in the comments section below.
