The newest iPad Pro introduced a stunning design that brought a much-needed breath of fresh air to the series. The flat edge design is a clear reference to the simple yet beautiful looks of older iPhones like the iPhone 4 and 5, considered by many to be the best-looking devices that were released by Apple.
The ultra-thin bezels make the device even more attractive.
Many users believe that a future iPhone that would use this design would be clear hit. Sadly, recent leaks suggest that Apple will maintain the same looks introduced with the iPhone X back in 2017. Intrepid designers have released original concepts of the device and some of them are really inspired.
The latest one was released by an experienced graphic designer. It is likely that renders won’t materialize into an actual device but the changes that are introduced are bold and creative.
At first sight, you could say that what you have in front of you is a larger iPhone SE. A discrete notch can be seen on the upper side of the screen. The edges of the device are flat and seamless and you almost can’t tell where the screen ends. The bezels are incredibly small, maximizing the screen real-estate.
They physical keys retain the classic positions but they are thinner and longer.
The rear of the device is also impressive. The designer envisions a reworked camera setup that uses 4 sensors, for a total of 48 MP that should deliver impressive pictures. The cameras can be found on the same iconic position but they look beautiful.
On the screen we can see a Touch ID prompt. Some users hope that the famous feature will make a comeback this year in the form of an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Apple has plenty of time to perfect the next entry in the series and the Cupertino company may change the design of the device in the following months. The official reveal will take place in September.
