What Apple's next iPhone might look like

  • The launch of iPhone 8 could be delayed

Apple is reportedly testing a number of new technologies for its impending flagship smartphone, the iPhone 8, according to multiple sources. Apple competitors including Samsung, Huawei, OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi are all preparing to launch "high-end full-screen smartphones" this year which could impact the iPhone 7s models making them less appealing.

According to a report on CNBC, there was a rumour from Apple's supply chain earlier this month that the iPhone 8 launch will be delayed by two months. But a new report from the most reputable Apple insider in the world indicates things may be even worse than we thought.

The iPhone 8 is expected on the 10th anniversary device this fall. If Apple isn't beginning mass production on the iPhone 8 until October or November, they'll nearly certainly be hard to come by until early 2018. Consequently, Kuo has adjusted shipping estimates to take the iPhone 8 delay into account. The pictures show an iPhone made of glass and stainless steel with an edge-to-edge front screen and no discernible bezel.

Despite no official word from Apple, the general consensus is that the upcoming flagship iPhone will feature a completely new design with an OLED display and a almost bezel-free look, according to The Verge.

It's Record Store Day!
He planned to release a list of what he'll have on hand Friday on the store's Facebook and Instagram pages as well as on Twitter . Record Store Day will feature the double LP "Complete Third", the third in a series of albums released in the past year.


From the photos, it looks as though the new iPhone could have squared corners, unlike the newer phones' rounded edges, and might measure slightly larger than the iPhone 7. These are to do with problems with acquiring a fingerprint reader with a touch sensor that is hidden beneath the display, one that Samsung also tried, but failed to implement due to time constraints in its just launched Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices.

It's entirely possible that these are both somewhat legitimate, as Apple probably hasn't finalized the iPhone 8's design at this point and may be trying to determine what's possible.

Elsewhere, the image shows a new dual lens camera which is positioned vertically, as opposed to horizontally as it is on the iPhone 7 Plus.

Because of these potential risks affecting the iPhone's shipments this year, Kuo adjusted shipping estimates for the device accordingly. The smartphone accounts for two-thirds of the company's sales, so a lot is riding on the success of the upcoming iPhone 7S and its two accompanying models.
