iPhone 7 concept sports USB-C, front-facing speakers and more

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are finally official and will be in our hands in fewer than two weeks. But, now that we’ve already had a brief peek at what Apple has to offer this year, artists are starting to dream up what might come next. Case in point: a new iPhone 7 concept video from SCAVidsHD.

The artist seems to imagine a few drastic changes for Apple, including the elimination of the home button entirely, instead replaced with Android-like buttons along the bottom of the phone. The mostly metal design is still intact, thankfully. However, the Lightning port has been swapped for a USB-C port, and the rear camera is centered.

SCAVidsHD imagines a 2K display, wireless charging with an Apple-branded charging puck, a front-facing speaker at the top-center of the phone, an 8MP front-facing camera and more.

Some of it seems plausible, other aspects, like the Android-looking UI, certainly won’t happen. But the videos are well done, and provide a fun look at a unique concept that Apple will never build.
