Apple iPhone 5 “Plus” Concept

It’s about that time when iPhone 5 rumors start ramping up. Fortunately I have one right here for you to feast your eyes upon. This iPhone 5 concept or as the creator calls it, the “iPhone Plus”, was created by the same guy who dreamed up the Instagram Camera.

Here’s a quick feature list for you dreamed up by the creator:
– Liquid metal 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 FPS
– Front Camera: 2.0 Megapixel (VGA), 480p VGA video at 30 FPS
– 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

What do you think about this iPhone Plus concept?

The Thinspiration iPhone? Is Design Anorexia the only way we have to feel good about our gadgets?

Love this mock up!

Sadly though, some early “rumors” already have the iPhone 4/4S form factor not changing too much for the iPhone 5. Still too soon to tell, but one would think more hard evidence (parts/case leaks) of a total redesign would have surfaced by now. It’s been fairly quiet — same as last year’s 4S ramp up. Hope that’s not the case with the 5 as well because if it looks anything like this mock-up, I’m in.

meh. There are reasons I enjoy the ios/iPhone platform – simplicity, minimalism and a strong, cohesive design language across product lines. This concept throws all of that away in favor of something looking more like an Android phone. Widgets on the home screen? Stop it.

hmmm…i have seen another concept that i thought was more in line with apple’s oeuvre and it was nicer. i am not a fan of the 4s body at all, i think the way they have designed the curved body of the macbook’s is more elegant, the boxy parts are clunky. that said i would still take one of these.

also, where does this guy find the time to do these mock ups?!

I’m looking forward to an even better camera than it has now. I still have an iPhone4, and I’m kind of teetering on wanting a new, small, high quality point and shoot for times I need something a little more than my iPhone and don’t have my D90 with me.

I also wish the images above had some context to them. For some reason those phones look huge, probably because there’s not something of typical size in the photo.

I think the pico-projector is a little far-fetched… maybe some day.

that display looks a little more like a 5.3 instead of 4.3 but damn its beautiful, coming from an android user none the less

A little ugly for an apple product, but the projector feature would be amazing for a musician…now I want that. :(

This isn’t from Apple, so it really isn’t a “rumor” for the phone. Apple doesn’t release things even to the employees. This phone looks like a lot of other phones and would be an ugly Apple design. It looks huge and thin and will break quick, fast, and in a hurry.

I know that’s what I was trying to say. I think it will be marginally thinner than the 4s, any thinner would be dangerous.

The silver-colored one looks so much better than the black or white versions. I’m surprised apple hasn’t taken inspiration from the aluminum/black style from their imac/macbook line yet. Love the metal finish, especially seen here. Don’t care about the thin-ness. Would rather have a battery that lasts for days and is thicker.

I hope this is it! Looks nice and features sound about right. The Pico projector can be omitted though since those things are garbage.

Second the comment(s) that it’s a bit Android-ish and probably not physically possible, but interesting design nonetheless. The projector is a nice feature.
