    So as a fellow designer... I enjoy seeing all of the concepts that show up in and around launch time. I was just curious, out of these concepts, which one has the most potential as the next iPhone? We will call it iPhone5, or iPhone V (for 5 or Verizon).

    I realize that their may not be a redesign coming next year(or maybe there will in January per recent rumors) but I was thinking more as an eventual redesign of the product.

    None. Mr. Ive is better than that.

    Also, I believe the iPhone 4 will be the first Verizon iPhone, instead of the fifth-generation one (if any of the most recent rumors are to be believed).

    Those designs are wayyyyy too thin!! That would be creepy having a cellphone that thin! I HIGHLY DOUBT we'll see a new design next year. The iPhone 4 will probably be slightly modified, but a new design will probably come every TWO years (iPhone 4 users are eligible for a full upgrade then).

    2007-Original iPhone
    2008-iPhone 3G (New Design)
    2009-iPhone 3GS (2008 Design)
    2010-iPhone 4 (New Design)
    2011-??? (2010 Design -- modified)
    2012-??? (New Design)

    I don't want a phone as thin as those. I think the size and shape of the iPhone 4 is just fine.

    The only one I think Apple would make is number 5, but not in that color.

    I think most of those concepts are quite ugly.

    I don't think Apple will make the physical size of the phone any bigger, such as the 4+ inch android phones out there. However, I think they will make the screen bigger by getting rid of the two black bars on the top and bottom of the front and making the entire front face of the iPhone a screen. I'm not sure what they would do with the front cam, speaker, and home button, but that could be worked out somehow.

    I think having the entire front of Apple products being screens, and eliminating all borders, is the direction they are headed in. I could see a future iMac being a borderless screen. The only exception would be the iPad, since having no borders might be hard since people hold it around the edges more than the iPhone.

    #7 is quite nice with that size of screen+retina.

    Actually some of these started out as 3G renders, then they were suggested as renders for the 3GS and finally the iPhone4.

    #1 would be half way decent if it had a home button.
