The iPhone 6s is on the way, but that’s not going to stop forward-looking Apple watchers from speculating about future phones — like, say, 2018’s iPhone 8.

Alongside regularly-demanded features like wireless charging, designer Jermaine Smit has come up with an unusual dual-screen concept reminiscent of Russia’s YotaPhone — which would offer a 2K display on one side and a low-power screen on the other.

Check out a video below:

Not everyone enjoys iPhone concepts, and given the fact that they often make sizeable leaps in terms of what is possible with modern technology within the price brackets Apple has to operate, I don’t entire blame them.

But, like patents which may never turn out to be actual shippable products, it’s fun to be presented with mockups showing directions that Apple could conceivably go with in the future.

Who knows? Since it took Apple a few years to go with the larger-screen smartphone devices Samsung first offered with 2011’s Galaxy Note, there’s still time for the idea of a dual-screen smartphone to take the world by storm.

I think I’ll be sticking with my one-screened device for now, though.
