Much has been talked about Apple’s plans for augmented reality (AR). For some people it is a little abracadabra: how does it work, how does it look like, what good is it? The answer to that question is somewhat clearer by this iPhone X concept. Here has envisioned the iPhone X, an Apple smartphone concept that focuses on augmented reality features. This concept shows a borderless screen with augmented reality (AR). In addition, the iPhone is an extension of the world around you. For example, look at a metro station, you will see how you have to walk to find the right subway line.
The Hungarian designer shows an edge to edge iPhone, with not one but several digital buttons below the actual screen. Large portions of the device’s front remind of the Galaxy S8, to be honest, curved edges and all. We may have a singular touch Home button, focused on Siri and AR, but there are also 4 contextual buttons, two on each side of the Home button.
Siri is now able to recognize objects and direct you using AR features. Now the camera, together with the new functionality is also able to recognize people’s emotions, heart rate and body temperature, as well as breaths per minute. The iPhone X concept also works on ergonomics, moving the app icons closer to the middle of the screen, instead of the top, like on previous iPhones.
The contextual buttons aren’t fixed, they can appear in a format of 2, 4 or however many you need. Designer did a fine job here and anything less than this from Apple would be a letdown. The curved OLED panel upfront is certainly a keeper.
Unfortunately it is only a concept and we will have to wait and see if Apple will use it in a similar way. Yet there are some practical drawbacks, such as a shorter battery life if you’re constantly looking around through the camera in your area. Also a borderless iPhone harder to maintain, especially in landscape mode. The chances of you accidentally tap something on the screen is quite large.
iPhone X looks fantastic. But is it the right phone for everyone? Do you think that Apple could make such a great smartphone this year? Will you buy one and how much are you willing to pay for it? Question!!!
