A Curved Screen for the iPhone 5S? These Images Think So

Advertisement

Of all the numerous rumors circulating about Apple’s next iPhone, one that’s recurred a number of times and seems relatively sensible is that the iPhone 5S will be a relatively modest improvement over the iPhone 5 and focus more on upgrades to internal components than anything like a radical new design. Well, apparently not everyone’s on that same page, as a couple images have arrived that purport to show off the iPhone 5 with a sloping, tapered construction.

Cards on the table: we do not have high confidence that these images are legitimate. While there are no glaring red flags, they’re in that realm of trying too hard to look a little too casual, what with that scuffed-up table and focus that’s just slightly off – the very sort of things we’ve seen in faked images before. That said, let’s take a look at we’ve got here.

The phone appears to have a curved display that stretches all the way out to the handset’s edges, resulting in a barely-there bezel. The iconic iPhone home button also looks to be gone, a change that we’ve heard rumored in the past.

So, what if this was legit? Would this be a good look for the next iPhone, or is it just a little too “out there” for Apple?
