I can't see it being a working prototype, possibly a mock up of what they imagine it to look like


If the word mock-up was used, it would be all good, but prototype changes things. Honestly though the real issue here is, why.. I can't think of any good practical application where this would benefit anyone, all it would do is create problems we didn't have before as others have touched on above.

It would be clearer, agreed, but there are non-working prototypes and working prototypes

The main company I can see this appealing to, would be Apple, they really work hard on perfection in terms of looks, lots of glass and shine

If they could work out how to build an iPhone with this transparent design, and make it look good, then.... yea I can imagine them going for it

Wasn't there some mockup for a fully glass designed iPhone released a good while back, by someone other than Apple ?

Looks fake to me. Like others have mentioned... no battery, so that'd have to connect somehow, plus the ports would have to connect somehow, plus where's the internal antenna? There'd have to be some wiring in there.

Not those no... it was a mock-up of a pure glass, no bevel design

I think its been kicking around for a few months at least, slightly holographic sense to it

I'll pass. It seems like a gimmick to me. I wouldn't like it at all.
