Could This Be The Design For The iPhone 5?

Could This Be The Design For The iPhone 5?

There have been all manner of rumors regarding what the iPhone 5 will look like – a slimmer, teardrop design? A lot like the iPhone 4? The fact of the matter is that nobody really knows – but that didn’t prevent Michal Bonikowski from adding a third major design to the rumor fray!

Bonikowski’s mock-up, pictured above, reflects what he thinks the upcoming iPhone 5 might (or should) look like, and I must say I respect his aesthetic tastes! His sample looks really nice, is thin and streamlined, and sees the glass back from the iPhone 4 being replaced with a metallic back.

All in all, I think Michal Bonikowski did a great job on this! Of course, this is just one man’t ideas and visions for the iPhone 5, and isn’t meant to act as a projection for what the future will actually hold.

    Looks good but I believe Apple will move the flash away from the camera to avoid the issues in the white iphone 4

      Maybe not. I think they will find away to avoid the same problems without taking out the flash.. Looks good thought

        FromMyCube didn’t say they would ‘take out’ the flash, but that they would ‘move’ it, a possibility proposed by the ‘leaked’ new camera module which unlike the iphone 4’s camera, doesn’t have the flash attached to it.

      Funny, as a professional photographer I understand how having the flash too close to the lens axis causes red eye in the photo.  So I sent in this idea on Apple’s suggestion page months ago.  Don’t know if Apple changed the design based on my feedback, but at least we may now be on the same page.  This is a great idea.

    Looks gorgeous!

    I don’t like it…. The front is awesome but the back would look much better if the camera would be placed more to the corner and the text more to the bottom ! Apart from that it’s cool but I also think apple will stick with their iPhone 4 design 🙂

    that would be so nice

    Weill it’s thinner and that’s always a plus. What is this idea of the 5 giving uo to be thinner?

    Seems reminiscent of the 1st gen iPad and 2nd-3rd gen iPod… Still very nice!

    Although I like the design, this conception isn’t, as has been reported, a “radical new design.”  If the metal back is made from aluminum, it will look trashed very soon.  However, if the back is made of the Liquidmetal amorphous alloy, it should retain its new look indefinitely, AND I will buy it in a heart beat.

    Apple returning to a curved back doesn’t make any sense. They’re making everything possible to push all product designs to flat designs.

    I Like this design but really really like the mock-up over at Gizmodo!
