iPhone 5 mockups are always a mixed bag. They’re certainly fun to look at and they help to quell our excitement until the actual device comes out. However, most of the time they instill us with a false hope by showing us insanely cool devices that will most likely never make it out of the designer’s imagination. Such is the case with the iPhone Air.
CiccareseDesign, an Italian website, has published designs for what they are calling the iPhone Air. This thing takes many design cues from the MacBook Air including an aluminum backing and tapered body.
One thing I’m not too keen on is the screen. It definitely seems larger than the current iPhone screen, but I think it looks silly with absolutely NO bezel… there’s gotta be something surrounding the screen. Take a look at the rest of the images below and let me know if you agree.
Other than that, though, this mockup is definitely one of the sleekest ones I’ve seen. I just wish we could get some actual evidence about the real iPhone 5!
What’s your opinion on these iPhone 5 mockups? Do you like to see them, or are you sick of gazing at devices never to make it to market? Let me know how you feel about this mockup and iPhone 5 mockups in general in the comments below or on twitter.
