In a world where technology has absolutely no limitations, smartphones are gorgeously slim devices with sleek designs endless battery life. They also don’t always have antennas, as we’ve seen in a number of sexy iPhone 6 concept designs. It’s still fun to look at talented graphic designers’ various visions of the future though, and a new one that actually looks somewhat believable emerged on Monday. Sadly, it will almost certainly never see the light of day.

According to numerous reports from industry watchers, the iPhone 5c is basically a flop. Sales were far lower than Apple was expecting and it was apparently forced to cut manufacturing orders almost immediately after the phone was announced.

According to a few reports, the iPhone 5c will be discontinued later this year when the iPhone 6 debuts, and no new similar phone will launch in its place.

In a parallel universe where the 5c wasn’t such a bust and Apple decided to continue the colorful smartphone line, the device’s successor might look something like the concept mock-up pictured above and below.

The design, created by Joseph Farahi, shows a thinner, wider plastic iPhone with a 4.7-inch display that stretches all the way to the edges of the device. It’s stunning, and it’s actually more feasible than most concepts we see these days. Considering how poorly the iPhone 5c seems to be selling, however, an iPhone like the one seen here will probably never exist.

A video showcasing Farahi’s design follows below.
