How The iPhone 5 Might Look In Your Hand

We have published mockups of Apple’s next iPhone before. But these are the definitive ones, showing what the iPhone 5 or whatever it is called would look like in your hand.

And, as it turns out, it looks pretty damn good. In black, the new iPhone is very 1980s, as opposed to the ’70s flavour of the current iPhone 4/4S. The two-tone black anodised aluminium is reminiscent of the old AV Sony designs of that decade — like its first CD player.

The white model is not ’80s, but it is prettier than the black. The aluminium and chrome unibody with the white accents have an old-school sci-fi feel. Like an object out of Kubrick’s 2001. Somewhere in Cupertino there’s a HAL computer powered by an array of these things.


Until you put all your greasy fingers over it, that is. [Nowhereelse -- Thanks Gonzalo!]
