Apple is set to launch its flagship iPhone 15 later this year and it looks like the company is taking a page out of its competitors’ playbook with a design reminiscent of Android devices. According to prominent leaker ShrimpApplePro, the upcoming iPhone 15 will feature a redesign that is “more Android than ever”, eschewing the traditional flat edges of the iPhone 12 in favour of a more ergonomic design.
Other Expected Features
The iPhone 15 is expected to be announced and released in the fall of 2023, and if the rumors are to be believed, it will be quite the upgrade compared to its predecessors. Among the features expected to come with the iPhone 15 include a periscope zoom camera, dynamic island for all four iPhones, a new 3nm chip for the Pro models, and a USB-C charging port. There are also rumors that Apple might be introducing a new top-of-the-line model called the “iPhone 15 Ultra”, as well as removing buttons from the premium iPhones in favour of strong vibration motors.
Design: Taking a Page Out of the Google Pixel’s Book
As for the design of the iPhone 15, it looks like Apple could be taking a page out of the Google Pixel’s book, with a flat screen and flat borders but a rounded back where the frame meets the back. This would make the iPhone 15 more ergonomic and comfortable to hold, while still maintaining a flat frame. It is also likely that the iPhone 15 will be made out of titanium, as it is lighter than stainless steel but still as durable.
All in all, the iPhone 15 looks like it will be a major upgrade from the current iPhone 12, and with the Android-like design, it could be the perfect combination of Apple’s iconic aesthetic and the ergonomics of the Google Pixel. We’ll just have to wait and see what Apple has in store for us come fall 2023.
