Perhaps Valentin Gallard's iPhone 6 concept represents precisely how the designer would like Apple's next handset to look, but it also embodies a very realistic image that is likely to resemble the next generation smartphone. Often, these approaches are not taken simultaneously, producing quite innovative mobiles that will be nothing like the coming model.

We have here a device that's fairly similar to the iPhone 5, but it also has physical qualities of the iPhone 3. From the front, this cellphone appears to express the familiar flat edges and straight lines of the most recent versions, but a subtle bulge in its back panel is reminiscent of the older look. Valentin Gallard's iPhone 6 would combine a more contemporary sleekness with a bit of the original curvy ergonomics in a design that was also inspired by the iMac.
