iPhone Pro – For Developers and Power Users

Simply love this version of the iPhone 6, it has so much substance to it, and as designer Michael Muyunda puts its, this is a pro version that is conceptualized to release alongside the iPhone 6. It is a version meant for developers and power users and is based on technology that should be available between now and the near future. This concept sees the use of a centered more square battery because the regular iPhone layout will not work with the back ‘windows’ layout.

  • This concept shows a practical way to run a desktop OS on a mobile phone. Everything unnecessary such as the system UI and desktop has been removed.
  • The sidebar is used to search all desktop apps.
  • When a desktop app is opened, Linux is virtually booted and the rest are ready to use.
  • When you press ‘Close all’, Linux is shutdown.
  • One of the main problems with a desktop OS is the UI size and this can be easily fixed with a smart zoom feature.
  • When your finger is hovered close to the screen a zoomed area will appear so you can easily get work done easily.
  • The dock recognizes the iPhone via NFC and wirelessly streams the display over Wi-Fi to any apple device.
  • The device will also include a HDMI dongle, which can be plugged into any HDMI display much like the chromecast.
  • The USB ports can be used to fully convert your phone into a PC by connecting peripherals such as keyboard and mice or you could use Bluetooth.

Michael Muyunda also has a campaign live here, check it out.

      What does ‘Redisigned’ mean?

    • Paul Russell says:

      I designed this concept back in 2012 (NFC link to dock, WiDi display for main display) but it was OS neutral.

      BFD My concept iPhone has 10 cores, 4k screen and two days battery life

    • Paul Russell says:

      The concept is not about the omgspecs of a phone. It is about the convenience of convergence and the patters of use of mobile devices. Alas it is blatantly obvious that this is beyond your level of understanding of design if you think writing a list of specs makes something a design.

      Looks like a re-branded Samsung phone though…at least the design language says so.

      I’m glad to see the original designer in here being pretentious about this absurdly garbage rip off design of a Nexus, otherwise I would have held my lounge and moved on with my day having seen another stupid unrealistic and ugly concept design on the internet…

      “This concept shows a practical way to run a desktop OS on a mobile phone. Everything unnecessary such as the system UI and desktop has been removed”
      -How is this even remotely practical for a desktop os? By stripping away its ui and desktop it literally destroys any practicality for a DESKTOP os.

      “•When a desktop app is opened, Linux is virtually booted and the rest are ready to use.
      •When you press ‘Close all’, Linux is shutdown.”
      -so it literally switches between multiple os’ for different functions? How absurd is that, you realize that an OS takes time to boot up, right? I’d click a program and have to wait for Linux to open and THEN load the damn program… beyond idiotic.

      “One of the main problems with a desktop OS is the UI size and this can be easily fixed with a smart zoom feature.”
      -Seriously? So your solution to the fake problem you created was… zooming? So basically you have NO solution? Also what happened to the ui being stripped? Now its zoomable and still prevalent?

      I’m going to stop here before I get to the technical impossibilities of EVERYTHING you mentioned for the device itself, but really? An iris scanner? That would be more cumbersome than the fingerprint scanner. This concept is bad and you should feel bad

      If you think I am the original designer then you will have to excuse my poor wording. I am not and I wholeheartedly agree that this design is rubbish, like half the things posted on Yanko it is little more than some flash renders of a terribly thought out design.
      My solution was far more elegant and practical. You can get a gist of it here:
      https://www.behance.net/gallery/Post-PC-device-(tablet-or-smarphone)-dock/10248413
      but it’s only a fraction of the work done for it.

      I’m the original designer. I made this out of shapes in Photoshop so I didn’t rip off the nexus. Someone else said it was similar so I guess that’s true.

      -How is this even remotely practical for a desktop os?
      The point is to run desktop apps on your phone so you don’t need a secondary desktop and another ui. All you need is the apps. Whats wrong with that?

      -OS takes time to boot up, right? I’d click a program and have to wait for Linux to open and THEN load the damn program… beyond idiotic.
      Boot times can easily be shortened just look at win 8 or chrome OS. The OS could also be kept in memory. Also it only has to be booted once per session.

      -Seriously? So your solution to the fake problem you created was… zooming? So basically you have NO solution? Also what happened to the ui being stripped? Now its zoomable and still prevalent?
      Not a fake problem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUE-gJmcGKk . Clearly its impossible to press stuff.Yes zooming was the answer, simple but effective and not just any zoom. The (*system ui) is stripped not the app ui.

      The Iris scanner was a maybe. Also Samsungs doing it.

      redesigned, small typo.

    • steve said what? says:

      Its not even a solution to the same problem, It’s also not very portable. It barely solves anything. Also in 2020 I’m sure we’ll have much more advance tech than that.

      *You can also just adjust your monitor if you want to sit upright.

    • Paul Russell says:

      It is not meant to be portable, why the hell would a desktop with keyboard and mouse for productivity need to be portable? The concept is that you use the mobile device… when MOBILE, and the desktop when at work/home. If your “desktop Linux OS” works when you are mobile, how are you meant to get any work done which would even require the OS in the first place? I just called it 2020 cus I liked the even number but my design is very possible today, yes.

    • This paragraph is genuinely a good one it helps new web users, who are wishing in favor of blogging.

    • Dan Etwas says:

      Sorry mate, the zooming is not a good solution, and running desktop apps through a mobile is really touch and go. It’s better to have a tool that works with then trying to replace it.

      The OS thing is pretty crazy, and not in a great way. If you wanted a multi bot device design it as such, tagging on the Apple logo is just a quick way to get your work circulated. And loading the OS into memory means on this device you’ll need about 15gb to store them all so they are ready on the go and even that is a bit of a stretch.

      How many iterations did you go through before you got here? I can’t imagine many because it is very Nexus 5 like. Here’s the main thing, strip out the multi os and all of your tech specs and you will see what the core of your work is. When you do that there isn’t much left for us to see other then a Nexus looking device, Apple logo and a phone running photoshop at such a tiny scale you have to zoom to get the tools.

      This guy just basically smashed together the Nexus phones, the Ubuntu Edge and one of those Samsung flexible display prototypes and put iOS in it.
      Also, the design is clearly a Nexus rip off.
      Besides, Apple, Linux, flexibility and the ability to run different OSs, I really don’t see that happening. If you said this was another attempt from Ubuntu similar to the Ubuntu touch, it would have been a little more believable.

      “I made this out of shapes in Photoshop so I didn’t rip off the nexus.”
      Just because you didn’t created the image from scratch and didn’t actually use images from the Nexus, the design is still based off the Nexus so it’s still a rip off.

      “The point is to run desktop apps on your phone so you don’t need a secondary desktop and another ui. All you need is the apps. Whats wrong with that?”
      1. Storage (desktop apps can use several gigabytes. You even put Visual studio there which, I know can take up at least a Gigabyte (including all its prerequisites)
      2. Processing power
      3. RAM
      4. Battery
      also, if you try over coming these by adding more storage, more power, more RAM you a couple other problems
      5. Heat
      7. Price (This device would have been very expensive in the first place)
      6. Device Size

      “Boot times can easily be shortened just look at win 8 or chrome OS. The OS could also be kept in memory. Also it only has to be booted once per session.”
      Not that easily. Even less if you use virtual machines.
      The reason Windows 8 boots so quickly is because it stores part of your session to you HDD or SSD so it’s kind of somewhere between hibernating and an actual shutdown.
      And Chrome OS? Yeah. the reason is because it’s basically just a web browser (no this is not a bad thing) and most of what it can do, you can do on any other smart phone and you can even do some with a dumb phone.

      “The Iris scanner was a maybe. Also Samsungs doing it.”
      Yeah… rip off.

      I have some questions-

      -With wifi and internet developing at this rate, why would one want a hdmi cable slot (ok, 4 slots, really?), why as many data cables? I would really just put a nokia mini charge cable point.
      – Mobiles are personal-personal computers, replaced every couple of years. How do you design to reduce e-waste? How do you design to make it modular, and aesthetically pleasing?

      I really want to see the designer building something with these taken into consideration.
