This is not what the iPhone 8 will look like

iPhone 8 Specs

I can see the future. I can see all the way to 2018. A bold new iPhone 8 will make its debut in September, and it will look like nothing we’ve ever seen before from Apple. It will also look nothing like this.

DON’T MISS: Apple’s iPhone 6s is almost here… time to take out the trash

Graphic designer Jermaine Smit has made some pretty cool stuff in the past. His new iPhone 8 concept probably isn’t among his finest works, though.

Smit published a video to YouTube earlier this month that’s now making the rounds on a few gadget blogs, and there are some pretty cool elements to be found in his vision. A 2K (or better) display is a pretty safe bet, and it would be nice to see a design with a bezel on the sides of the screen that are as narrow as the ones pictured here. Wireless charging would also be cool, as would some nifty virtual reality features.

If you think the iPhone 8 is going to look like a flattened iPhone 5 though, you’ve got another thing coming.

Apple has been moving away from the iPhone 5’s design identity and has been unifying the look of its iPhone and iPad lines. The company has also been busy figuring out how to hide the antenna lines on its phones. The odds of Apple turning back the clock, moving away from a rounded aluminum design, and going back to the iPhone 5’s external antenna setup are just about nil.

The designer’s full video is embedded below.
