New iPhone 7 concept has a home button integrated into its display

Thanks mostly to its home button, the iPhone needs a fairly large bezel around its display. But a new iPhone 7 concept gets around this by integrating the home button and Touch ID sensor into the screen itself.

While it’s hard to criticize Apple’s design choices, smaller bezels are something I would like to see from future iPhones — and iPads, for that matter. The iPhone 6 Plus is larger than rival devices with 5.5-inch displays — such as the LG G3 — simply because the bezels surrounding its screen are so big.

Thanks to the home button and Touch ID sensor, however, Apple could only make them so small. But this iPhone 7 concept created by Martin Hajek for German magazine Computer Bild imagines what the device might look like if its home button was integrated into its screen.
It certainly looks like an attractive device, and I’m a big fan of the near edge-to-edge display. But I’m not sure I like the home button inside the display; it looks like it would become a distraction at times — especially when watching movies or TV shows on your iPhone.

SO what do you think ?
