A new concept imagining Apple’s next iPhone has emerged online, whetting our appetite to dream bigger and better this autumn.

Created with intricate detail by Arthur Reis and made into a suitably Apple-esque video by Ran Avni, the handset looks largely identical to the iPhone 5, rocking an anodised aluminium casing with chamfered edges, but in a smaller frame that still makes room for a larger display with shorter and thinner borders and is apparently five per cent thinner.

It also adds an improved 12-megapixel camera with an improved ‘iSight Pro’ sensor and an f/1.8 wide angle lens for “amazing photos even in low light conditions”, along with a slightly ambitious five-megapixel camera at the front.

Elsewhere, the render highlights a new ringer/silent button and an all round improved build that’s apparently more scratch resistant and also five per cent slimmer than the iPhone 5.

Alas, the renders don’t showcase the recently unveiled iOS 7 operating system, which is set to launch this autumn, possibly alongside the new iPhone.

Along with a major facelift that’s inarguably cleaner and easier on the eye than the current iteration of the, iOS 7 brings true multitasking a la webOS, a new ‘Control Centre’ that gives you instant access to important settings and an improved version of Siri with integration to new services such as Wikipedia and Bing.

What do you think of Reis’s concept? Let us know in the comments section below.
