    Default Artist Renderings Hint at What iPhone 5 May Look Like


    It's one of the hottest questions burning up the smartphone world today: what will the iPhone 5 look like? Will it be almost identical to the iPhone 4? Will it be radically different as some have predicted (but the evidence doesn't suggest)? So far, in the absence of a leaked device - a luxury we had the last time around - we've primarily been left to our imaginations in guessing what the next-generation iPhone will look like.

    Of course, if you're designers Michal Bonikowski and Antoine Brieux, guessing games are no fun. But artist renderings certainly are. The two iPhone 5 sketchers have produced renderings of what they believe the next-gen touchscreen handset will look like. For Bonikowski (see rendering above), the iPhone 5 will not stray from that which we've grown familiar.
    Bonikowski's iPhone 5 plays it safe, returning to the pioneering handheld's roots with an aluminum back and steel fame. It's still thin like the iPhone 4, but its predecessor's flat back has been replaced with a slight, curving bulge.
    Where we find a greater challenge to the conventional, established look of the iPhone is in Brieux's artist rendering (see below), which is clearly a more pronounced departure from the iPhone 4. It effectively evolves "the more boxy look of the iPhone 4" into a frame that appears "rounded from the front and flat from the side."



    Although I hope the ultimate look of the iPhone 5 more closely resembles Bonikowski's rendering, Brieux may not be too off-base, particularly given the speculation from far east parts suppliers who have recently been more forthcoming about the new look and feel of the device, often hinting at the "flatter" design envisioned by Brieux.

    Do you think either man has it right, or might we be surprised by the design Apple actually has in store?

    Do people not have anything better then to make up what a phone may look like? Seriously, I could draw one thats triangle in shape and call it a render of what it could be like.

    They completely made this up, they have no idea what it's looking like and this sketch is just a guess

    Going off all known and proven evidence available, I believe the phone will resemble Steve Job's johnson.

    Do I get my own article now?

    Let me see if I can invite one of the engineers to have some drinks to see if he forget his iPhone 5 on the counter. Gizmodo, I will keep in contact.

    Do you really not have anything better to do than post stupid, irrelevant comments on forums whose sole purpose is to talk about news such as this? Seriously, I could just look past your comment and think nothing of it but the idiocy of your statement really needed to be brought up in a public venue.

    I lol'd. It was obviously staged; how else do you keep millions of Apple fanatics begging for more and more leaked information.

    I agree...I'm tired of this tiny creek lol...my gf is on Verizon and just got the Droid X2 and it dwarfs my iPhone. Guy at Verizon told me he would give me $210 for my iPhone so I could switch to Verizon..I said "you just want mine so you can talk and surf at the same time." lol

    just a thought but...this is modmyi...a place for anything-apple-enthusiasts which also include but not limited to rendering future iphones...that doesnt mean we have nothing better to do...but the same would be said to someone posting something like what you have posted...nothing better to do then post negativity?


    my view:


    wasting time drawing an iphone = creativity
    posting negativity = waste of time
