Gone are the antenna lines, as the iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone since the iPhone 4s to feature a glass shell on the back. Considering that this is the tenth anniversary iPhone, Apple is expected to introduce many innovations in it.
People continue to find new details about Apple's next flagship device in the recently discovered firmware for the upcoming HomePod speaker. Kuo seems to share this belief and to his mind, the colors available for the iPhone 8 will be copper/bronze (gold), silver and black. Far from your run of the mill release, the iPhone 8 is perhaps the most hotly anticipated new iPhone we've seen in years. While the devices featured in the video below are dummy models based on leaked schematics, they seem to align with numerous iPhone rumors we've seen as of late.
The Korea Herald's The Investor reports that the OLED-equipped iPhone 8 is being postponed until November due to challenges surrounding "some hardware and design features", citing anonymous sources from within Apple's supply chain. It's likewise similar to the 7 Plus in terms of size, although it's certainly bigger than the iPhone 8 because of the thick bezels. However, it also claims that the company will still debut the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus in September.
There are rumours - as always - of facial recognition, a new iPhone colour, touch ID removal, wireless charging, waterproofing and a differentiation in size.
With mass production starting earlier, Kuo expects Apple will announce all three iPhone models simultaneously in September, with plans to launch them all on the same date. The dual camera setup on the 2017 iPhones would be vertical instead of the horizontal one we saw this year.
A new purported image, newly posted by the notorious smartphone leaker Evan Blass, which was picked up Centrio News, gives us a better understanding of what the screen-dominated front panel of the much-awaited iPhone 8 will look like.
