A new iPhone 5 concept was recently created by Ciccarese Design that closely resembles a magic mouse.
"We are fans of Ciccarese Design here at 9to5Mac, even when its renderings do not closely follow Apple's design language," wrote tech site 9to5Mac. "The design studios new iPhone 5 mockup exploits a teardrop design meme in a lovely way and as commenter's pointed out, it's inspired by a Magic Mouse."
Rumors have been circulating about the design of the iPhone 5 since last summer that claim the next-gen device will sport a rounded tear-drop shape design.
It seems that Ciccarese has taken this idea to the next level by completely rounding out the back of the device making it look somewhat like an egg.
When the iPhone 4S was released, it was originally expected to be the 5 sporting this brand new thin-tapered look. But when the device finally dropped it disappointed many Apple fans who were hoping for something completely fresh and got the 4S which is identical to the iPhone 4 in terms of appearance.
This new rendering is probably far from what Apple will release when the company launches its sixth generation smartphone. It features an Apple logo on the back that happens to glow in the dark. It also looks like it would fit firmly into a user's hand.
Even though tech sites such as 9to5Mac doubt Apple will give its next iPhone an appearance such as the one in the new concept, this design seems to be quite unique and would make the device stand out from the competition who strives to make its phones thinner and thinner.
The iPhone 5 is expected to be released sometime around the summer of 2012. It is rumored to feature an A6 quad-core chip along with a larger display.
