I was sceptical about the rumoured next-generation iPhone’s design. The two-tone unibody enclosure shown in crappy videos didn’t say anything to me. Then I saw these 3D renderings that were created using allegedly leaked parts as reference.

Now I’m starting to love it.

While the current iPhone 4 and 4S takes me back to the ’70s — especially with my JackBack on — so-called leaks of the new iPhone reminds me of the ’80s. The two-tone black anodised aluminium reminds me of the old AV Sony designs of the era — like its first CD player.

While general design spirit of this render seems more ’80s, the perforated grills flanking the new nano-dock port screams high tech.

The front is just glass, like it always has been. Aligning the camera in the centre with the speaker grill, screen and home button is a small change that makes all the difference in these rendered images. [Flickr]
