Designer Sam Beckett creates a believable model for what Apple’s next iteration could look like.
A lot of concept designs for the iPhone are impressive feats of creativity, but often not all that achievable. Designer Sam Beckett thought it was time to create something believable, which is why he came up with the “iPhone Air,” a concept which is 8% larger than the current design, and features a 17% larger screen.
The proposed design changes may not make for jaw-dropping headlines, but they do show that Apple wouldn’t have to push too many boundaries to improve on the previous iPhone design. Beckett’s phone has a 4.7-inch 1080p display made from sapphire crystal, and boasts 468 pixels per inch. Overall, the iPhone Air is also 0.6mm smaller than it’s predecessor, which creates room for a larger battery or other additional components.
Beckett also thinks the camera sensor will be updated, probably to a 10-megapixel sensor and an increased aperture of f/1.8. This could be complemented by a faster and more efficient A8 chip as well.
It’s nice to see a designer keep hold of the reins when it comes to a concept design for once. Watch the video below and you’ll see how easy it is to believe that this particular phone is a reality (even though it’s not, just to be clear).
