Technology moves extremely quickly. The iPhone 4S has only been around for a few months and we’re already a little bored of chatting with Siri.
That might be because of the fact that Apple didn’t redesign their flagship product’s look, but only its guts. Don’t get us wrong; there are a lot of positive things about not changing the design. You didn’t have to buy a whole new case or protective system and your accessories are still compatible.
Nevertheless, the Internet certainly made itself clear that it was expecting a redesigned phone back in October. An iPhone 5, not an iPhone 4S. But how about an iPhone SJ?
Italian designer Antonia De Rosa of ADR Studios has thrown his concept into the ring and the results are pleasing, indeed.
Called the “SJ” for it’s inspiration coming from the late Steve Jobs, De Rosa’s design incorporates the much talked about “edge-to-edge” screen which has seen speculation for some time now as well as a slimmer profile. On top of that the concept suggests a fully glass front panel all built on a lightweight polycarbonate body.
De Rosa’s design indicates that the device would also house the quad-core A6 chip and a 10 megapixel camera. Such specifications may not be far off in the next iPhone release, presumably called the iPhone 5.
Perhaps the iPhone SJ could be found in Jony Ive’s studio today, right next to the mythical 50 inch iTV?
What are your thoughts on this concept?
