The concept iPhone 5 design was created by Italian designer Federico Ciccarese of Ciccarese Design after trawling through various online rumours and speculation.

The final images show a sleek, flat-screen device with a curved back designed to fit in the palm of a hand. One side of the slim phone also features volume control buttons towards the top of the device while the other features a headphones jack towards the bottom of the device.

The back of the concept iPhone 5, interestingly shown in white, features a lit-up Apple logo slightly below the rear-facing camera. A full range of images can be seen on the designer's website at http://goo.gl/FtnlQ.

On February 23, the birthday of the late Steve Jobs, the design was featured on numerous tech blogs including Mashable.com and caused a buzz among Apple fans on Twitter.

While Apple may not be announcing the iPhone 5 anytime soon the company is expected to launch the next-generation “iPad 3” at an event on March 7. — AFP-Relaxnews
