We’re only a few weeks away from Apple’s September event that will serve as a launchpad for Apple’s highly anticipated tenth-anniversary handset. While the rumors have mostly revolved around possible hardware advances for the OLED iPhone model, one aspect has remained largely overlooked thus far: how Apple could market iPhone 8.

Industrial designer Quinton Theron saw to that with a batch of jaw-dropping renderings depicting possible marketing images for iPhone 8 versions in Black, White, Gold and Rose Gold, complete with a clown fish wallpaper owned by news.scubafish.com.

By the way, clown fish was the default wallpaper for the original iPhone ten years ago.

The latest rumors claim that Apple abandoned an in-screen Touch ID which appears on Quinton’s renderings but that doesn’t make his iPhone 8 vision any less stunning.

Check out the additional renderings embedded below and dare tell me that Apple’s HR department shouldn’t be in contact with this guy promptly regarding immediate employment.

The more I look at Quinton’s renderings, the more I think Apple should make a ceramic white version of iPhone 8.

Oh, wait…

Say hello to iPhone 8 Edition!

“In this concept, I envision how iPhone 8 would look in Ceramic Edition,” he wrote. “This model is based on current rumors and speculation molded around my own design.”

He adapted the description from Apple’s Watch Edition webpage slightly to suit a possible iPhone 8 Edition model. The wallpaper used in this model is a cropped version of a photograph by David Doubilet, National Geographic Creative.

For the sake of completeness, it should be noted that recent rumors have suggested that the OLED iPhone will arrive in just three colors—Black, White and a new hue that’s “closer in copper” in its color and visually similar to Rose Gold devices.

So, how do you like these renderings?

If iPhone 8 looks anything resembling this concept, would you consider buying it? And how about that ceramic iPhone 8 Edition model? Would you pay a premium for it?

    love the renders 😀 good job Quinton!

  • Igor Engelen

    Yep. Sign me up for a ceramic iPhone. If it could run iOS in some official way I’d already bought the Essential phone.

  • WvB22

    Looks way better than the black, silver, copper dummy’s we saw. Much sleeker and refined.

  • Will Maitner

    I just really hope there is a + version of this phone.. Going back to a iphone 6 sized keyboard is going to piss me off..

    • Ara Rezaee

      It’s going to have a +ish display so the keyboard is going to be larger like the +.

  • Patrick Rice

    Wow… the ceramic one looks so good…

  • Namra

    THESE LOOK BEAUTIFUL !!

  • pauleebe

    Definitely beautiful, but at this point I think it’s clear the color offerings won’t include what’s in this concept.

  • Micke på taket

    Apple should hire theeese guys .. looks Fresh

  • William Melendez

    Wow. Beautiful

  • Rowan09

  • Austin

    Gorgeous! Just need to extend the lock/power button

  • Jmmso

    Great work! Congratulations. Much more beautiful and stylish than dummy’s out there.

  • Lord Ravenor

    This guy’s stuff is actually very good, unlike that Hayek guy who keeps getting featured because he’s… available?

  • felixtaf

    These are beautifully designed. If the final product is anything close to this designer’s creation, then people (like me) wont have a second thought. The dummies look hideous with the camera design. These are so refreshing to the eyes.

  • Arqam Nasir

    Where can I find those clownfish wallpapers! They look sick!!

  • Mallouk Malek

    this is the first time i like the new shape of the iPhone, old photos & dummies were so ugly !

  • Jerry

    I have exploded if ceramic is in the line

  • Jerry

    wow Quinton Theron needs a job at apple ASAP

    • MrTarek

      apple will surely see this thread , maybe we’ll see him at apple sometime

  • Jerry

    Looks way better than the black, silver, copper dummy’s we saw. Much sleeker and refined.

  • Nah! Straight Outta Compton.

  • Bacillus

    There is no iPhone 8 design.
    Only a proposed iPhone 6 Ver. 3
    The same crap box that Apple wants to sell for half a decade now – now with slightly sharper edges.
    “Ive’s kitchen” is overgrown with fungus from hardly being used in say 4/5 years.
    Oh, and the camera is even more appalling…

  • mickey

    I like the mockup of the display on the ceramic phone. It’d be interesting if Apple made the status bar like that (color matched to bezel with only icons displayed).

  • scott thomas

    It’s going to have a +ish display so the keyboard is going to be larger like the +.
