Apple has not confirmed if the next version of the well-received iPhone 6 will be iPhone 6S or an entirely redesigned flagship dubbed iPhone 7. However, many designers have come up with impressive concept designs of the upcoming Apple handset. Recently, a designer named Martin Hajek created several sensational iPhone 7 renderings by taking the handset’s aesthetics to a new level.

Based on iPhone 7 renderings from the German site Computer Bild, the stand-out feature of the upcoming device is the remodeled home button, which looks like it is part of the display boundary of the handset. Apple reportedly recently patented the technology, which helps in integrating a fingerprint-scanning layer beneath the display. Therefore, Hajek has likely taken a cue from the patented technology and modeled the home button accordingly, Phone Arena notes.

As for the iPhone 7 design based on the concept, Phone Arena says the sleek smartphone apparently features a fluid front panel with fewer bezels. The top of the display also comes with fewer bezels and houses the front-facing shooter unit and the proximity sensor. To top it off, this ultimate handset also sports an illuminated Apple logo on the rear pane, with the option to disable the illumination via the phone settings.

Meanwhile, Apple recently acquired LinX, the camera-based technology company, for an estimated $20 million. As the company website puts it, “LinX cameras are significantly smaller than any camera on the market today, leading the way to DSLR performance in slim handsets. The LinX cameras not only capture 2D images but also acquire very accurate depth information of the complete scene.” By taking this new camera technology into consideration, the designer has apparently featured a dual-lens camera as the rear-facing unit on the iPhone 7.
