New iPhone Plus concept is one sleek beauty
The iPhone Plus concept has been causing quite a stir with its ultra-svelte proportions
We've seen plenty of iPhone concepts in recent times but the iPhone Plus has to be one of our favourites.
Designed by Antonio De Rosa, the iPhone Plus shows a glimpse of what Apple would probably love to do with the iPhone 5. It's incredibly slim, like Apple's iPod Touch 4th generation MP3 player, and suitably minimal.
According to Recombu, the iPhone Plus has a number of cool-sounding materials, including alkali-aluminosiicate sheet glass, a chromium edge and a liquid metal body. The only thing missing is that new super-material graphene.
There's also a mention of the in-cell screen technology built into its 4.3-inch display, which is a new form of technology that would allow Apple to cut down the width of the next iPhone quite substantially, one analyst believes. It could also help with production costs as there would be less wastage, so not entirely implausible.
Other specs include a quad core A6 processor for making sure the experience is silky smooth, 10-megapixel camera for taking impressive photos, 1080p HD video recording and, for all your PowerPoint users, it even comes with a built-in projector.
We'd be happy with the current iPhone in a body that impressive, so all that functionality is just a bonus. Not so sure about the capacitive home button but you can't win them all.
The actual next iPhone, whatever Apple calls it, is expected to arrive around June 2012.
