The iPhone 8 is expected to be Apple’s most high-end iPhone, ahead of two other devices, including the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, which might not offer all of the new and advanced features. You can expect the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus to be small upgrades to this year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 8 is supposed to feature a screen that takes up almost the entire front of the phone.
According to Forbes, What you see below is a finalised hardware design. An enlarged, elongated 5.8-inch display is surrounded by dramatically reduced bezels of approximately 4mm on all sides, the theory being the iPhone 8 won’t be as prone to accidental input like the Infinity and Edge displays on Samsung’s premium Galaxy smartphones.
According to the renderings, the new iPhone will finally make the leap to a full-bleed screen that mimics Samsung’s Galaxy Edge, which eliminates the physical home button on the new 5.8″ display, up from the iPhone 7’s 4.7″ screen. Replacing the clickable bezels will be a new “Function Area” in iOS 11 that will display notifications and gather buttons like calling and pausing all in one place (think the MacBook’s touch bar).
In addition to this Apple will indeed replace the horizontally aligned dual rear camera of the iPhone 7 Plus with a vertically aligned shooter on the iPhone 8. This switch is to support Apple’s big drive into Augmented Reality where horizontally aligned cameras are more effective and the phone is expected to be held in a landscape orientation.
More iPhone 8 secrets do still remain: battery capacity, camera specifications, A11 chipset performance, etc. But when it comes to its looks, ladies and gentlemen: this is the iPhone 8.
