New concept illustrations of the next-generation iPhone have been revealed, based on the latest rumours that Apple will launch a much thinner smartphone made with Liquidmetal and in-cell technology.

ADR Studio, an Italian design group which has created concept images of iPhones in the past, calls the latest device the ‘iPhone Plus’. The illustrations show an iPhone with a Liquidmetal body, a screen with double alkali-aluminosilicate sheet glass and a 4.3in Retina display that uses in-cell technology.

The concept design features an A6 Quad Core processor, with a 10-megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera. The device also has a rear motion sensor, a projector to beam photos and videos onto any surface and a new slim-dock connector. The home button is also fully capacitive.

It is expected that the iPhone will arrive this year, possibly in October. Most experts have dismissed rumours that the sixth-generation iPhone will launch at this year’s WWDC.

Let us know what you think the new iPhone will look like and what features you hope it will have in our comments below.

    4G that works in Australia would be nice.

  2. Pip Pendrell says:

    Yes Rob, that would be nice. Of course, why Australia would adopt 4G different from that used in the States is beyond me. That said, I’d be very pleased if the new phone had these specs. I’m not so worried about how thick the new iphone will be, but I really want the larger display. Perhaps they should make it the same thickness as the current model, but have less unusable space.

  3. ComPeter says:

    I agree Rob. I felt a bit annoyed with the iPad3. Lets hope that the iPhone5 will work with the 4G network in Australia.
