A designer has given us a glimpse of what the next iPhone may look like, in the latest in a rash of renders of the iPhone 5S / iPhone 6 that have appeared online in recent weeks.
Created by Antonio De Rosa of ADR Studio, the concept design takes on board much of what leaks suggest will be on board the forthcoming Apple smartphone. That means there’s a larger screen – albeit at 4.3-inches one that’s much smaller than talk of an iPhablet suggests – and a beefier A7 quad-core processor.
De Rosa’s fantasy phone also substitutes the current iPhone’s eight-megapixel snapper for a lavish 18-megapixel camera, complete with double-flash LED and noise reduction.
But it’s perhaps the use of fingerprint scanning tech – also a long-time fixture of the iPhone rumour mill - and transformation of the area beneath the screen where his render stands out.
Opting to ditch a traditional physical home button, De Rosa has positioned a fingerprint scanner beneath the Apple logo under the display. Meanwhile, the entire panel has been radically reimagined as a touchpad, ostensibly to allow improved access to apps and games.
The designer’s work has come to light the week after Apple officially showcased the iOS 7 software that will power the seventh-generation iPhone, ahead of its mooted due date in September.
