As we get closer to the next Apple iPhone launch, more leaks pop up to reveal what to expect. At this rate, the fruit company won’t have any surprises to announce come September.
The rumor mill has been suggesting that the upcoming iPhones will have some design changes and that there will be a third device with significant asthetic alterations. Today, the front and rear panels got leaked, they confirm all the new designs as we expected.
The iPhone 8, as you can see above, will have a bezelless screen on all four sides of the display apart from the top section which hosts the selfie camera, earpiece and perhaps some light and proximity sensors just like the Essential Phone. The rear is also made of glass and on it resides the vertical placed dual cameras with a flash placement in between. The flash location shows a significantly large circular cut-out, we assume the iPhone 8 will have quad LEDs like the current generation variants. The front panel will cover an OLED screen – a first for Apple- which will be supplied by their arch-rival Samsung. Reports suggest that 80 million screens have already been ordered by the Cupertino tech giant and am sure Samsung is more than willing to put away their differences and deliver on this fortune deal.
Also leaked was the rear panels of the upcoming iPhone 7S and 7S Plus. Apparently, those too will be made out of glass material on the rear. This revelation confirms the rumor that the whole upcoming iPhone line will have wireless charging. Despite this, the general design language of the 7S and the 7S Plus remain the same apart from the build materials used.
Since the launch date is still a couple of months away, we expect more leaks to appear, hopefully even a video of an actual live device.
