If there is one thing that Apple’s iPhones are known for it would be their design. With Apple choosing not to refresh its iPhone design for the past 2 years, safe to say that there are many iPhone fans and users out there who are just dying to see what Apple could unveil next, and if the wait was worth it.
Now we have heard various rumblings in the past, and now thanks to a report from Korea’s ETNews (via 9to5Mac), more details have surfaced. According to the report, they claim that Apple will be revisiting the design of the original iPhone from 10 years ago for the iPhone 8, and that it will sport a “water drop” design.
The report reads (translated), “Apple’s next iPhone is expected to be closer to ‘water drop design’. It embodies the back side design with curved emphasis, resembling the initial iPhone. This year, the 10th anniversary of the birth of the iPhone, it also shows the character of ‘Omaju’ for the early works.”
This isn’t the first time that we have heard rumors of a curved display, although what we had recently heard is that it won’t be a very dramatic curve, but rather a gentler one. We’ve also heard that Apple will be turning to the use of glass and metal, with the glass sandwiching the phone with metal antenna bands similar to that of the iPhone 4/4S. In any case take it with a grain of salt, but we’re still months away from hearing anything official.
