German digital designer Eric Huismann has shared his insights on how the iPhone 6 would look like if it were to support a transparent display. At first glance, you would notice the concept was made by an artist and not just any ordinary “Photoshopper.” But that’s where it stops.
Huismann, in his concept, made the iPhone a see-through device allowing users to see what’s in the background even when their eyes are fixed on the screen. But the design is actually contrary to what everybody might expect; it doesn’t come with a curved or sloped display. There are still bezels in the left and right side of the screen while the top and bottom parts remain opaque.
The designer also made assumptions that the iPhone 6 would sport an A7 processor for improved processing and a 10-megapixel camera that would allow full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) video recording. Many people would actually be thrilled upon seeing the see-through design but the problem is where would Apple put all the hardware including the battery?
If you think they’re transparent, too, you’re wrong. Huismann believed all components can be stuffed in the top and bottom parts that remain opaque, which is not even virtually possible. For the sake of argument let’s say it is possible, can you imagine how hot the phone would get if Apple would place the CPU plus the attached GPU side-by-side with RAM or the battery? Since the company is taking into consideration the design of its products to make an appeal to a rather modern audience, it couldn’t afford to produce “thick” or bulky iPhones.
Lastly, Huismann added one thing obvious—the iOS 7— which would be an added feature. What you make of Huismann’s efforts? Let us know in the comments below.
