What if you could design your own iPhone? Packing whatever hardware and features you want into Apple’s sleek industrial design sounds like fun, but it’s easier said than done. Not every iPhone concept design comes out looking great, but a new one published to YouTube by Jermain Smit is actually pretty stunning.
The iPhone 7 imagined here doesn’t demand a drastic redesign. Instead, it’s just a few clever tweaks and a few new features. One unique concept turns the Home button into a navigation tool, letting you swipe between pages with a quick flick of your finger. That’s something Apple has a patent on, so it’s not too far from reality.
On the spec side, Smit adds a 12-megapixel rear camera, which moves to the center of the device, flanked by a dual LED flash module. The front-facing camera also gets an upgrade to 4-megapixels and a wide-angle lens. Finally, the concept device jumps to 2GB of RAM and packs in a quad-core A9X processor.
Overall it’s a pretty sensible concept, borrowing a lot of ideas from recent leaks and patents. It’s possible Apple could pack in a few other surprises, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a new iPhone with similar traits to the device pictured above (video below) unveiled later this year.
