ADR Studio, one of the regular sources of iPhone mock-ups, just came out with another iPhone concept design. What’s nice about outfits like ADR Studio is that they go to great lengths to make the concepts very detailed, giving the impression that they will be going into production.
The new iPhone concept is called iPhone Plus and it looks to be the answer for iPhone fans clamoring for a screen bigger than the current 3.5-inch display. The iPhone Plus also features an ultra-thin design it could in fact be called iPhone Razor.
- Liquidmetal Body: thermoformed on a single plane, no junctions needed;
- Screen with double alkali-aluminosilicate sheet glass;
- 4.3″ Retina Display with In-Cell technology;
- A6 Quad Core processor;
- Rear Camera: 10.0 Megapixel, f/2.4, 1080p Full HD video at 30 frame/s;
- Front Camera: 2.0 Megapixel (VGA), 480p VGA video at 30 frame/s;
- Rear motion sensor;
- Top pico-projector to beam photos and videos on any surfaces;
- Slim design for an edge-to-edge thinner profile;
- New slim-dock connector;
- Fully Capacitive Home Button;
These are impressive specs but lest we forget, these are all imagined.
How close is the iPhone Plus concept to the iPhone 5? The answer is, no one knows. Well, maybe just the people from Apple. It’s quite obvious though that the iPhone Plus will be far from how the iPhone 5 will look like. I’m not claiming I know things about the upcoming iPhone 5 but it’s no secret that Apple is not a fan of huge screens, not the 4.3-inch size anyway. The design is also too wide and too thin I imagine having a hard time using the phone. Apple will likely not support this kind of user experience.
Props to the ADR Studio team though. The iPhone Plus concept still manages to be pretty.
