iPhone 5 Inspires Product Designers

Designers around the world dream up the iPhone 5.

The Apple iPhone 5 is expected to be unveiled in September. How will the new iPhone 5 look like? Rumors range from no change to the iPhone 4 to dramatic design changes. Our recent prediction calls for a slightly more organic design. We think the iPhone 5 looks like a pillow: curved back and also slightly curved glass.

Designer Michal Bonikowski created a concept design (photo above) of the iPhone 5 featuring a curved aluminum back-side. The design looks pretty plausible, but I would have added an edge-to-edge screen. Yanko has a couple more photos of his iPhone 5 design.

Already in April ThisIsMyNext published a iPhone 5 concept design with an edge-to-edge screen and an aluminum back. Their design sees the iPhone 5 getting thinner towards the bottom end.

A bit off the beaten path takes us designer Antoine Brieux. His iPhone 5 design actually reminds me a bit of Samsung's design language. Not sure if it is intentional, given the tension between Apple and Samsung these days over patents. More photos of this iPhone 5 design can be found on Gizmodo.

Hi-res shots of all three iPhone 5 design variations can be found in the article gallery. If you know about a cool iPhone 5 design, please point us to it in the comments below.
