For as long as Apple promises new iPhones, people from all across the globe will let their imaginations run and come up with their own iPhone concepts.
Some are great and very inspiring, while others are far fetched and well, downright ugly.
However, this new concept from designer Sam Beckett, falls under the ‘great and inspiring category.
Beckett’s concept is for a proposed iPhone Air. Now, there have been no official reports or claims of a possible iPhone Air in the pipeline, but considering the fact that Apple has launched an iPad Air along with it’s MacBook Air, the idea is not as far fetched.
What we do know, however, is that the iPhone 6 is said to make its debut sometime this year.
Beckett’s design is 8% bigger than the current iPhone 5S. While the phone might be bigger, it doesn’t mean that it’s bulkier in design. This concept for the iPhone Air is 0.8 millimeter’s thinner than the 5S.
The proposed iPhone Air also has a 17% larger display – which of course means that the screen is substantially bigger.
According to Beckett, extra space (for a bigger screen) can be made by reducing the size of the side bezels (the panels on the left and right hand side of the screen) as well as reducing the top and bottom pieces of the frame.
The bigger screen on the iPhone Air is designed to be a 4.7 inch touchscreen with a 1920×1080p Sapphire Crystal display. The Sapphire Crystal display will replace the current iPhone 5S’s Corning Gorilla Glass.
Furthermore, the concept design features a faster A8 chip and a 10 megapixel camera.
The concept is really pretty cool, and considering that the design is sort of reminiscent of the iPhone 5S (and possible iPhone 6), this may very well be the direction that Apple might take.
Whether or not Apple is planning a iPhone Air, will remain to be seen. However, for now, we can let our imaginations go with sam Beckett’s great concept.
