Anyone with a recent iPhone model knows that the smartphone packs one heck of a decent camera in its tiny shell, but here's one concept design that takes smartphone photography to a whole new level.

Unfortunately, these mockups don't come direct from Apple, and the iLens concept design will likely never see a commercial release. Rather, the concept design for the iLens was created by Rishi Soman, an industrial design student from India. The concept design features all the things you'd expect from an iPhone, but with interchangeable lenses that you would normally see in an SLR camera.

In an excerpt from the Yanko Design website, Soman states that the "Dual lens system on the iLens provides you with an option to click with the 50mm prime lens on the main device. Magnetically attachable zoom and telephoto lens give you more dynamic photography options. The magnetically attachable lens sits on top of the primary device lens, which is the 50mm prime lens. The lens and the device communicate to each other via NFC Standard."
