Disappointed with iPhone 7? iPhone 8 might surprise you!

By : |September 12, 2016 0

Apple iPhone 7 was released amidst a subdued market interest and unfortunately, the unveiling of the device did little to improve the scenario. The biggest reason – the phone looks identical to the iPhone 6 generation.

But, all you die-hard Apple fans, worry not, the Cupertino giant is preparing for something big that we expect Apple to announce in 2017. Next year marks the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone, and all rumors are pointing to a radical redesign of its signature product.

No ‘S’ model this year

According to MacRumors, a report from an analyst at Barclay’s claims that Apple will skip the “S” model this year, which has historically followed each new phone version, and jump directly from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8 in 2017.

A glass body

A report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the iPhone 8’s body will be made of glass. If so, it could have a similar aesthetic as the iPhone 4 and 4s, both of which had a glass back.

All display front with no borders

John Gruber, the plugged in Apple blogger has spilled that the iPhone 8 will have an all-display front surface. Gruber claims he has heard insider “scuttlebutt” that the iPhone 8’s front won’t have any bezels or borders, and that it’ll be one large display.

Invisible home button

As a corollary to the above mentioned feature, the 2017 device that would mark the iPhone’s 10th Anniversary would have an embedded home button into the front glass panel, making it invisible.

Wireless Charging

The Barclay’s analyst report by MacRumors also claims that the iPhone 8 will have wireless charging.
Most recently, a patent submitted by Apple on September 9 shows the company is still looking to optimize wireless charging solutions.

A new display

Rumors from The Korea Herald news site suggest the 2017 iPhone will have an AMOLED display, which would look better than the LCD display in current iPhones.
