We've heard and seen plenty of rumours of the Apple iPhone 7 in the past few weeks. While we'll still have to wait a while until the Cupertino-based giant reveals the final design, a renowned concept designer who goes by the name Hasan Kaymak has come up with an iPhone 7 Edge concept phone much in advance.
In Kaymak's point of view, the iPhone 7 will be identical to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Yes, you heard it right! As you might have guessed by now, the iPhone 7 Edge retains the iPhone 6's form factor but does away with the bezels from the iPhone.
Basically, the iPhone 7 Edge has the same look and feel as the Galaxy S6 Edge. The device is a bit reminiscent of the Galaxy S6 Edge while also borrowing from the design of the ZTE Nubia Z9.
Kaymak's Apple iPhone 7 Edge concept also features a full metallic body and is overall thinner than the existing iPhone 6. The concept phone seems to be keeping the rounded edges of the iPhone's design and the dual-tone colours for the top and bottom portions of the phone.
Would you buy the iPhone 7?
As for the specs, the concept artist didn't provide any, but we can make a few speculations based on previous rumours. According to media reports, iPhone 7 will bring a big design change from its predecessor, iPhone 6S.
So, we can expect the iPhone 7 to have a 4.7-inch screen, a rounded, metal chassis and a slim profile. Unlike its predecessor, the iPhone 7 is expected to be made available in a new colour option: rose gold.
It's believed that Samsung will be supplying Apple's A9 processor, and that they're being manufactured using a new 14-nanometer process, meaning the chipset would be fast, and of course, more powerful.
Another big rumour around the next-gen iPhone 7 is that the iPhone 7's Touch ID fingerprint sensor, which is usually situated beneath the Home button, could be built-in to the entire display. This could be indeed a revolutionary step.
Interestingly, the iPhone 7's camera could rival your beloved DSLR camera. The Cupertino-based company recently acquired LinX, a company that specializes in making small camera modules, for an estimated $20 million. The firm's camera can also track depth, allowing for features such as post-shot refocusing and 3D modeling. Apparently Apple is thinking to use the same technology to the iPhone 7.
Seeing as how iOS 9 is scheduled to launch next month, it's possible that the iPhone 7 will run on this latest version of the operating system.
