Apple is going strong with its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus but many industry experts accredit this success more to the Samsung Galaxy Note7 fiasco rather than the devices themselves. Although the new iPhone 7 brought tons of new cool features like water & dust resistance and an amazing camera, but a lot many would question whether it’s a worthy upgrade over the iPhone 6s or not. But a new report has emerged which claims that Apple is going to change this next year with the iPhone 8.
Apple will be celebrating iPhone’s 10th anniversary next year and if this report is to be trusted, all of us might be in for a huge surprise. According to this report, Apple would be launching a third 5-inch display variant of the iPhone 8 apart from the regular 4.7-inch model and 5.5-inch model. This would be a first as Apple has been sticking with the two display sizes for some time now.
The 5-inch model would cater perfectly to the needs of the iPhone users who find the Plus models a little too big for their taste. This isn’t the only big news. Apple has been sticking to the all-metal Aluminum design since the iPhone 5, but it might change very soon with the iPhone 8. The report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 8 will sport glass panel on both front and the back. Both the glass frames will be held together by a metallic frame.
Apple might even ditch the ‘Home’ button too and go for a completely edgeless display. The Touch ID would be integrated into the screen. There are even rumors of an OLED display. These really sound very interesting and if Apple indeed brings these features to the iPhone 8, it would be a major overhaul. This would be too soon to comment on these features, but it will be very interesting to see if Apple can really do something out-of-the-box with the iPhone 8 or not.
