What if Apple does indeed launch an iPhone Air next year, following in the footsteps of the iPad Air, in addition to a curved smartphone? What would those devices look like? SET Solution recently set out to imagine two new devices, the iPhone 6, or iPhone Air, and the iPhone 6c with a curved display, and the results are stunning.
SET imagines the iPhone Air with an edge-to-edge display and a super thin form factor. The aluminum body is still there, though the entire device is just a hair thick, seemingly leaving no room for the battery at just 3mm thin and 6mm wide. In reality, a body with that kind of design wouldn’t really fit a 3.5mm headphone jack, though the bottom looks slightly larger to accommodate for it. SET also says “obviously there’s TouchID,” too.
The iPhone 6c, meanwhile, is imagined as a smartphone with a curved display. “Life is a curve,” the mock ad says, showing off a phone with a thicker top and bottom but a super thin mid-section. The colors are still intact, and we’re not quite sure what the benefit of the actual curve would be: it looks a little too curved for our tastes, though a flexible display could help add durability.
These are just fun mock-ups, but we do hope Apple considers some of the ideas, like a full edge-to-edge screen and a super thin body. Check out both videos below.
