Forget A Fingerprint Sensor, iPhone 6 Infinity Concept Has A Wrap-Around Screen [Gallery]

We’re less than a month away from seeing what the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S will look like—fingerprint sensor and all—but some artists on Dribble have been dreaming of a new feature for the iPhone: an infinite screen.

Claudio Guglieri’s iPhone 6 Infinity mockup and template sparked a mess of awesome rebounds from other artists who added their own bits of flair to the idea of an iPhone with a display that wraps completely around the device.

Take a look at these other great mockups:

Not sure how the screens on the side and back would work when you’re holding your iPhone, but having adaptive buttons on the sides and a display on the back could lend to some really cool app ideas.

    I guess—among it’s other virtues—the new iPhone will be the perfect device for using in the area of a ship where meals are prepared. (g)

    I cannot see how this would be practical in any way.

    @MrsCleaver Haha. oops.

    That’s awesome, but wouldn’t it be difficult to hold? Also, how would Apple produce it and still make it cheap enough for us mere mortals?

    One thing I thought of was for gaming, you could have two top ‘shoulder’ buttons like on the SNES controller, and newer consoles since then. I have often wondered why developers don’t find a way to use the volume controllers while in gaming mode to be actual physical buttons. This is a cool concept idea.

  • Shane Bryson

    One of the dumbest concepts yet.

    this is a very stupid concept,and nothing practical about it.good thing these are just concepts made by some nerds on photoshop.

    Not sure how you would use it without accidental touches but if it’s possible I believe Apple could make it work.

    I for one think the concept is incredible!! The thicker renders look pretty stupid but the accurately iPhone 5-thin renders are jaw-dropping!! Trying to imagine watching a movie where the image seemingly floats in the air. Not too dissimilar from the borderless/chrome-less edge-to-edge design of the QuickTime player or even Safari that only has chrome and reappearing/disappearing scrollbars.

    Beautiful.

    That is the most ugly design i have ever seen

  • DrM47145

    Besides being a quite impractical idea with very limited use for its drawbacks, I can imagine the manufacturing process being quite a bit cumbersome. Let alone getting inside its guts to repair the friggin’ device.

    Whatever this designer is smoking, he needs to quit.

  • iSteve

    With this design, it will be impossible to use high-end case. I don’t think it’s a good idea.
