Design
Where form meets function

With the official unveiling of the much-hyped 10th anniversary iPhone still some way off, concept artist Imran Taylor has shared his interpretation of how the device should look.

Epically dubbed the iPhone X, Imran’s design incorporates a 5.8 inch OLED edge to edge display and a liquid metal frame. Just 6.9mm thin, the state-of-the-art gadget can be (somewhat optimistically) powered up wirelessly and shoots with a 3D camera. If you’re worried about smashing it, then fear not, as it’s been reinforced with high-quality Gorilla Glass on the front and back.

For ease of use, a lower bezel display has been worked into the design, allowing the user quick access to apps and notifications when the screen is off. This function can be altered depending on the app. A smart connector, meanwhile, can be used to support a wide array of third-party accessories.

Cosmetically, the phone is optioned in gunmetal black, silver, gold or rose. Check out the rest of the blueprints here.
