Here’s an iPhone concept I can possibly get on board with. Designed by Riho Kroll from Germany, this iPhone 7 concept introduces the idea of a secondary display above the earpiece which shows cellular signal strength, battery level and notifications at a glance.

Kroll also included touch sensitive panels on either sides of the concept device. The idea is to reduce the number of UI elements by providing a new method of interaction.

What do you reckon? Hit or miss?

    The design itself was reminiscence of high end Lumia device (925, 930) and also resemble of XPeria Z series devices, iPhone design always have rounded curves (and so for iPhone 6) so this technically wrong.

    The next year iPhone would be called iPhone 6S. But anyways, I don't like this design. This looks horrible to me. And this cannot be even called iPhone because this is Windows Phone design.

      Where does it say "Windows Phone" on the concept art? I don't see a Windows button or "live tiles" anywhere on it. The Home Button looks exactly like the iPhone 5S's fingerprint-enabled button, and the notification bar and clock look like iOS...

      But this design has some similarities with Windows Phone. Apple should stick to its current design. Rumours say that iPhone 6 would have rounded edges, now who wants that? Bigger size i.e a samsung sized phone. These concepts will remain concepts till the end of this earth.
