    What ever happened to this design?
    Would anyone be surprised to see this on September 12th?
    I would rather see bigger redesign than just a larger screen and an aluminum back (which will be covered by most with a case)

    you never know maybe that is the new design. I happen to like it. I hope it doesn't look like the leaks. The leaks don't really look like an APPLE product but we will see.

    That design never existed outside of renderings and cases (made by companies gambling on said renderings.

    I'm glad it was a fake - it'd be uncomfortable to hold in landscape with one side thicker than the other.

    I would absolutely hate for my phone to wobble up and down as i try to text with it laying on the desk. Hopefully this isn't it. I love the flat back.

    It was a pipe dream and there is 0 evidence it ever existed.

    That's a good point. I never thought of that.

    Just thought it was weird people were selling those cases on eBay before the phone launched :confused:

    Do a forum search for teardrop or tear drop and see what you glean.

    What device?

    The cases are sitting in a landfill.

    That home button always looked horrendous.

    This design was a rumor and had no substance whatsoever. No leaked displays, no casings, etc. This year, the entire enclosure, battery, dock connector, logic board and more have leaked. No teardrop iPhone moldings, parts, or casings actually leaked. It was merely a rumor to stir things up.

    The designer forgot to leave room for a mic, headphone jack, charger port and battery?
