One of the most anticipated phones in the world is the iPhone 5, which is scheduled to launch by the third quarter of 2011. People just can’t wait to get their hands on this new iPhone and to see what new applications Apple has added to it. Companies are in a race to try and get their concepts of the phone right. The company which came the closest was NAK Studio and the end result is simply stunning (above in the picture).
But before you even start to drool on the screen, keep in mind that the following image is simply a concept. No one is a hundred percent sure of what the phone is going to look like. Only Jonathan Ive and his design team back at Apple know about the actual design of this long awaited phone. This iPhone 5 concept by Antoine Brieux from NAK Studio is strikingly similar and extremely inspired by the existing iPod Nano 6th Generation.
The body of this iPhone concept consists of a magnesium based alloy casing which is used to hold the electronics which is sandwiched between the two glass pieces. The front glass is of four inches and has 1100 x 730 pixel display. Now this is the same as what the iPhone 4 and the iPod touch 4G has. Now Apple had doubled the display resolution when it moved on from 3GS to 4, but they aren’t likely to make that move again.
After all, they wouldn’t want to lose out on all of the applications which work on 480 x 320 and 960 x 640 resolutions which the iPod 4G and the iPhone 4 have respectively. Now the concept design which NAK has put forward has very sharp edges. Also if you notice all of the Apple products have rounded edges. But in this concept the corners are quite sharp which is very “un-Applish”.
But if you look at this cellphone concept, you can’t help but think that it looks like a love child between the Nokia N9 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. Reports have also come in that the sales for the current iPhone is going down. After seeing this design, we can just hope Apple to come up with a brilliant phone to please its customers.
