The iPhone 8 is expected to feature bezel-less design
Next year Apple will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, Apple is expected to make some big changes including leaving out the‘s’ nomenclature and directly moving to iPhone 8. As it is Apple, it is bound to attract rumours, and the latest one reveals that the new device will see a complete design change. The iPhone 8 is expected to feature bezel-less design along with curved edges on the sides.
The analysts assured that the iPhone 8 would sport the same overall size; however, their display will increase to 5-inch and 5.8-inch because of the bezel-less design.
While the company didn’t mention anything about a third variant, the analysts did point out the company’s shift to OLED screen. These new displays are claimed to be more battery efficient, and provide better colour accuracy and deeper blacks. Moreover, the plastic LED display panels will allow the new device to bend at the edges and set up curved edges on the sides. The OLED panels are exclusive to the iPhone 8 Plus device and will be created by Samsung and LG. Earlier Foxconn-owned Sharp was supposed to create the OLED display panel, though because of the lack of supply, Sharp only will be able to come to production by the year 2018
The analysts also put forward that the company’s 3D Touch may see a modification to a new ‘film-based solution.’ For now, the iPhone 7 features flexible PCB technology to bring in 3D Touch on the smartphone. The leaks before have also indicated that the upcoming iPhone 8 will be coming with advanced wireless charging technology that will allow the users to charge their device even from 15 feet away, without any requirement of a wireless charging plate.
Apart from all the above-mentioned leaks, there was a leak that suggested that the iPhone 8 also expected to sport an all-glass back, a new Touch ID system and a new A11 processor.
