iPhone concept imagines one perfect device to rule them all

If the rumors are true, the iPhone 7 may turn out to be a pretty incremental update. A few visual tweaks and upgraded specs, but no truly game-changing feature. That’s a far cry from the innovation Apple fans have been clamoring for, and one new concept design sets out to imagine a revolutionary new iPhone.

The concept, created by Marek Weidlich for ConceptsiPhone, imagines a bezel-less design with a giant 3D Touch display in front. Even the physical home button is gone, replaced with a virtual button and a new version of iOS that takes advantage of the expanded screen. In back the primary camera has been centered, which seems like an odd decision.

This theoretical iPhone only comes in one 4.7-inch size option, a throwback to the Steve Jobs era when Apple knew best and offered a smaller product lineup. It also only comes in just one color scheme, sporting a silver frame and a black back panel. Customers would get two storage options, picking from 64GB of a whopping 256GB of free space.

It’s a pretty big departure from the path Apple is currently on, and some of these suggestions sound downright impossible. Still, I wouldn’t be upset if the company released something like this in the future, though personally I’d miss the 5.5-inch plus-sized iPhone.
