Now that some of the iPad hype has faded, the attention quickly turns to the next iPhone.9to5Mac uncovered the work of Italian designer Antonio De Rosa, who has taken a stab at imagining what the new device might look like.

His designs, while purely speculative, are totally stunning.

De Rosa imagines a very sleek design

Reimagined notifications and widgets

Pixel density will probably be great

Power and volume buttons at the top

A nice machined back

It doesn't need a black background to look sexy

The hypothetical thinness is impressive -- we're looking forward to see how thin the real thing gets

The lack of a tactile home button is really striking here

The home button appears in the middle of your app dock

Again, the finely-machined back

The power and volume buttons revisited

Some hypothetical apps for it

It's a beautiful imagining of the next iPhone

This isn't the first time the new iPhone's been imagined
