Another day, another report about the iPhone 8. It’s the iPhone’s 10th anniversary this year so Apple is expected to launch a revolutionary product to commemorate a decade of its most popular product. A new report suggests that Apple is going to launch three new iPhones later this year, two of them will be upgraded versions of the current iPhone models and one will be an entirely new handset.
Bloomberg reports that the iPhone 8 is going to have a new type of screen that utilizes curved glass. The handset is also going to have stainless steel materials and more advanced cameras. The iPhone 8 is reportedly going to have a display that covers almost the entire front of the device.
The size may be larger than that of the iPhone 7 Plus but the increased screen-to-body ratio will allow for the handset’s overall size to be similar to that of the iPhone 7. Apple may also free up more space for the display by integrating the home button into the display itself in a manner not unlike the one we’ve seen Samsung utilize with the Galaxy S8.
Previous reports have already suggested that the iPhone 8 is going to use an OLED display. This will be the first time that Apple will make the shift from LCD panels for its smartphone. Upgraded models of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are said to retain their 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch LCD displays respectively.
Apple is reportedly testing prototypes of the iPhone 8 with slightly curved glass on the front and back. The company is said to be testing versions of its dual camera system for the new iPhone which have the dual camera system positioned vertically instead of horizontally in a bid to further improve the imaging performance.
It goes without saying that none of this is confirmed at this point in time and Apple is unlikely to confirm anything about its new iPhones before the time comes. Apple’s new iPhones are expected to be launched this fall.
