Imagining a 4.3 mm-thin iPhone Air


The iPhone Air in all its glory?

Rumors have suggested that Apple might return to the 4-inch iPhone form factor with the next-generation of iPhones, but what would a new 4-inch iPhone even look like?

If this video is anything to go by, it will be crazy thin … even thinner than the iPad Air, from which it would also borrow its moniker.

The guys at SET Solution imagine the so-called iPhone Air as just being 4.3 mm thick, about 1.8 mm thinner than the iPad Air. Spec-wise, it would feature a 1920 x 1080 Full HD screen, 13-megapixel camera with 4K support, and either 32GB or 64GB storage options.

Honestly, those are ridiculous specs. The 4-inch iPhone is never going to be thinner than the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhones, and a 1920 x 1080 Full HD screen would mess with Apple’s careful Retina formula.

Still, it’s interesting to see what people are expecting, and you’ve got to admit, this proposed ad for the iPhone Air has a really clever gimmick with that laser-shaved pencil denoting thinness. And after all, this isn’t the most implausible iPhone Air SET Solution has ever come up with.
