Sharper edges — A video depicting an alleged 3D-printed mock-up of the next-gen iPhone shows a device with sharper and flatter edges. The leak comes from Alibaba (via Japan’s Macotakara, which mostly has a solid track record).Besides the iPhone 4-esque design, there's also what appears to be a Smart Connector that's reminiscent of the one on the iPad Pro used for connecting accessories and charging an Apple Pencil.
If the mock-up is accurate, the notch isn’t going to get any smaller on the next iPhone. But far more annoying is the fact that there’s still a large camera bump housing the three backside lenses.
This might be a fan’s work — We’ll reserve judgment until we’ve seen something from a component manufacturer or similar. But we’d be delighted to see Apple return to the design language of what is arguably the most iconic iPhone ever.
