AN incredible fan-made video showcases what Apple's next iPhone could look like when it launches later this year.
Based on various rumours and leaks that have emerged in recent months, the YouTube clip shows a mobile with a "retro" squared-off design.
Dubbed the "iPhone 12", the mobile will apparently come with a dual-rear camera system and a compact 5.4" display.
Apple hasn't announced it's making a new iPhone yet, although it's fairly safe to say one is in the works.
The firm normally releases iPhones in September each year. We already know a fair bit about this year's due to various leaks from Apple insiders.
Put together by YouTuber Concept Creator, the new video gives viewers a detailed look at the potential design of the 2020 iPhone.
According to the video, the iPhone 12 will come in at least three colour variants and cost just $649 (£529).
Of course, there's no way of knowing if the upcoming phone will look anything like the one depicted in ConceptCreator's video.
We won't know what the iPhone 12 actually looks like until Apple officially announces it, likely later this year.
Recent reports have suggested the iPhone 12, not yet announced by Apple, will come in four variants, all with 5G connectivity.
The mobile will allegedly come in various sizes: A 5.4in mini version, a 61in iPhone 12 base model, a 6.1in 12 Pro and a 6.7in 12 Pro Max.
According to repected analyst Chung-Hoon Lee of UBI Research, the mini will cost as little as $700 (£560), while the 6.1in base and Pro models will come in at $750 (£600) and $999 (£800) respectively.
The largest of the bunch, the iPhone 12 Pro Max, will cost $1,099 (£890), Lee claims.
While similar in size, the 12 and 12 Pro will differ in the number of cameras on the back: Two and three, respectively.

As with Apple's most recent mobiles, the iPhone 11 series, we can expect the rear triple camera array to include wide-angle and telephoto lenses.
Apparently, the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will also come with LiDAR scanners.
LiDAR is a type of laser technology that measures distances to accurately map a scene in 3D.
It means you can create much more accurate augmented reality effects – like Pokémon Go or advanced Snapchat filters.
Apple recently added LiDAR to a product for the first time ever with the launch of the new iPad Pro.
At a reported 5.4in, the "mini" iPhone 12 will be Apple's tiniest mobile since 2017's iPhone 8 (4.7in).
It'll fit easily in the palm with a design that goes against the recent trend of "bigger is always better" followed by the world's leading smartphone makers.
The key feature for the iPhone 12, though, will be 5G connectivity, according to the leak. All four models will have it as standard.
5G is the next generation of mobile internet, expected to deliver blisteringly fast download speeds – changing the way we use our handsets forever.
With 5G, you can download a full HD movie in seconds over your network connection.
In the USA, 5G is available in a number of cities on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.
EE, Vodafone and others have already launched in the UK, and they're seriously impressive.
Apple hasn't confirmed any plans for an iPhone 12 yet, so take all rumours and leaks with a pinch of salt.
We won't know the truth until much closer to September 2020, when Apple's next iPhones are likely to launch.
In other news, Apple recently released a new "cheap" version of its iPhone SE.
The iPhone 12 could be the thinnest ever thanks to new screen technology.
And the new phone could also see through mist and fog thanks to rumoured 'Spectral Edge' camera integration.
