With Apple’s next iPhone announcement approaching fast, we’re all more eager than ever to see what stunning creation Apple unveils next.

Until then, our appetites can be temporarily satisfied with beautiful artist renders of potential iPhone 5 designs. This one is no different, expect that it depicts what looks to be more like an iPhone Nano than iPhone 5…

By Zeki Ozek, this iPhone 5 concept features a smaller, squared design with some interesting features to match.

Namely, the artist has envisioned an iPhone that uses a fingerprint reader to recognize a finger swipe to unlock the device. You could even assign different fingers to launch different apps. Your index finger could launch the Messages app, while your thumb opens your favorite Twitter client. Very interesting.

With a double up-down swipe you can open apps running in the background. Your fingerprint can also be used as a security measure. No more passwords!

Zeki also has a cool idea with the ability to connect your iPad Nano watch to the iPhone via Bluetooth and have push notifications sent to your wrist. You would also be able to control parts the iPhone from the iPod Nano.

There are plenty of cool ideas in this concept, including a rear touch wheel built into the Apple logo for easy scrolling with one hand. Also, the volume buttons can double as game controls.

While this iPhone 5 concept doesn’t match up with the rumors surrounding the device at all, it’s interesting to see what people are creating and dreaming up out there. Who knows, maybe one day some of these features will be implemented in a future iPhone.

The next iPhone is expected to be thinner and smaller with a slightly larger display. Another model will likely be launched that closely resembles the iPhone 4. Apple has yet to give an official date for the announcement, but a media event is predicted to take place in the next 2-4 weeks.

  • this aint happening…no chance.

    “Beautiful”? Thats the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen. Who would want something that small? I hope ALL these mockups are wrong. I think the design now is pretty damn close to perfect. Any thinner or lighter and it will feel cheap. I could care less for a bigger screen, thats what my iPad is for. These mockups are getting rediculous. I hope it stays exactly the same, not just for my own sake anymore, but just to piss everyone else off. Enough already.

      So far it’s all just rumors and ideas, quit whining.

      • Brad

        How bout you learn the difference between whining and offering an opinion…. then when you’re done you can go fuck yourself.

  • XepptizZ

      +1 😀
      Yes, and an iPad you can use as an frisbie.
      Lol

  • plazma_009

    Way to short. How could you possibly hold that for games without covering the screen. Will never happen in a million years in my opinion

  • agreed..no chance.. too little with the competition of all the new phones having 4.3+ inch screens. better experience than iPhone as much as i hate to say it.. don’t get me wrong i love the iPhone and i carry mine everyday..but the bigger screen is awesome..i would love to see this on the next iPhone..but my galaxy s2 will be here in a couple days for comparison

    Ugly!

    why dont they ever talk about bigger better speakers? yeh i no a lot of people dont use the speakers to play music.. i do occasionally. when im up at the cottage or when im on speaker phone.. common now.. how about more than one speaker this time?

  • Mecie

    No thanks

  • “the volume buttons double as game controls”. The rendering doesn’t have any volume buttons. And the home button is way to thin. It’s like they took a drawing and shrunk it. It needs to be streached out.

  • I like the idea about the iPod nano watch though.

  • Jacksparrow

    It look like a fat chinamen.

  • Rich

    That’s the worst design I ever seen. Out of all the rumored designs out there they better not select this one.

  • Jack

    awful design

  • kokhean

    iPhone 2G = Squarish round
    iPhone 3G = Round
    iPhone 3GS = Round
    iPhone 4 = Squarish
    iPhone 5 = ?

  • Bryant

    I think it looks pretty sick myself, just my opinion. And i like the volume buttons for gaming idea, amazing.

  • iamlynda

    I likethe scroll wheel on the back and the idea of using the volume buttons for gaming. it is too small though, I like the size of the 3GS & 4 as they are now – although a slightly bigger screen would be great

  • MALdito

    Ewww! This is horrendous!

  • Alex

    connect your ***iPad Nano*** watch to the iPhone via Bluetooth and have push notifications sent to your wrist. You would also be able to control parts the iPhone from the iPod Nano.
