The next iPhone likely won’t be out for at least another seven months, but that hasn’t stopped one Apple fan from dreaming up a gorgeous ad for the upcoming device.

Apple is expected to make the bezels thinner than ever on the 2017 iPhone which is rumored to feature a number of new upgrades. The Concept iPhone YouTube channel created a fake ad that shows how Apple might utilize the extra space by turning the home button section into a Touch Bar.

Check it out:

In the concept video, the speaker has moved to the very top to the device. It looks like the front camera either magically shoots through the display or has been removed so you can’t shoot selfies.

It’s an interesting idea, but I’m not sure how home button would work either if it’s a part of the display.

What will be new in iPhone 8?

Previous rumors have claimed that the next iPhone will have a glass in the front and the back with a stainless steel band sandwiched in between. One report has claimed the dual-lens camera will be reconfigured so that the telephoto lens sits below the wide angle lens instead of beside it.

Other new iPhone features may include wireless charging, improved camera sensors, a faster A11 processor, improved waterproofing and more. Apple usually unveils its iPhone lineup in September, so there’s still plenty of time for all of the rumors to be wrong.
