Images: Early iPhone prototype designs

This is quite fascinating. Court documents between Apple and Samsung are bringing out the early prototypes of their devices. This time around pictures of the iPhone have surfaced that date back to 2006. The designs tell a great deal of how Apple has transitioned the iPhone over the years – some look completely awkward with sharp edges, while others look like a big iPod mini.

Over the years there has certainly been rumours of various shapes and sizes of what the “next iPhone” could be like, but these images all replicate the rumours in some form or another: bigger display, curved back, thinner. Check them out below.
