iPhone 8

Last updated & Last Checked : Few Hours Ago

Apple has a major iPhone redesign planned for 2017, with a glass body and edge-to-edge OLED display that does away with the Home button and perhaps replaces Touch ID with a new facial recognition system. The new iPhone may be sold alongside upgraded (but standard) 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhones.

The iPhone 8 is expected to feature a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead, rumors suggest Touch ID will either be built into the display or eliminated entirely in favor of facial recognition technology, which Apple is confirmed to be working on. Either way, there will be no physical Home button on the iPhone 8 and no bezels aside from a small area for the front-facing camera.

With an edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 8 may be similar in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone, but with a display the size of the 5.5-inch iPhone. Rumors suggest it will feature a 5.8-inch display with 5.15 inches of usable area, with the rest dedicated to virtual buttons that will replace the existing Home button.

The display itself is said to be a flexible plastic OLED rather than an LCD, allowing Apple to introduce a thinner device that consumes less power and offers a better display with higher contrast ratio and more true to life colors. It will feature a slightly curved 2.5D display that’s similar to the display used in the iPhone 7.

As for the body, Apple is finally moving away from the aluminum used in the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, and SE, and will instead adopt a glass body that’s similar to the body that was used for the iPhone 4. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the glass will be built around a polished stainless steel frame that’s similar in design to the Apple Watch. Other models will also feature glass, but with an aluminum frame.

Apple Accidentally ‘Confirms’ iPhone 8 Is Massive

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.
Apple is supersizing the iPhone. Numerous case leaks, schematics and dummy units all point to a 1.1-inch jump from the iPhone 7’s 4.7-inch display to 5.8-inches. But now Apple’s own software has confirmed this…

Like so many of the major next generation iPhone, Watch 3 and Apple TV 4K leaks, this information again stems from Apple’s own HomePod beta code which it accidentally shipped full of product roadmap information. And like so many of these leaks, developer Steve Troughton-Smith is the one who has uncovered it.
