As for now, a mock-up video has been spread which depicts re-imagined iPhone by totally removing the Home button. Author of the video is a designer Kris Groen who has shown us his vision about the new generation of Apple phone, his own concept design.
The most different thing in “Groen’s iPhone” is that it does not have Home button. Author of the design replaced the button with two separate Home buttons on each side of the handset, located midway up. Groen, based on a user experience point of view, believes that ‘squeezing’ both of the new Home buttons together would take you directly back to your Springboard. The new buttons would also allow for fast application switching when used individually.
Another important change is screen size of the phone, which is increased to whopping 4-inches diagonally with Retina display. Some people want the iPhone to be bigger; others think the current model has perfect screen size because anything bigger will be uncomfortable, just like other smartphones.
What about you? How do you feel about the concept? After seeing the video below do not hesitate to let us in comments.
