A report by Forbes claims to have obtained a CAD file for the iPhone 8 through its supply chain. The pictures of the expected iPhone 8 seem to suggest complete elimination of chunky bezels.
As per the report, “Apple will indeed replace the horizontally aligned dual rear camera of the iPhone 7 Plus with a vertically aligned shooter on the iPhone 8. This switch is to support Apple’s big drive into Augmented Reality where horizontally aligned cameras are more effective and the phone is expected to be held in a landscape orientation.” The renders, also confirm that Apple will continue using Lighting port. As far as, USB Type-C and 3.5 mm jack are concernedthey will not be deployed.
As per earlier reports, Apple is reported to introduce the iPhone 8 with an OLED display. Given the fact that Apple has recently struck a deal with both LG and Samsung to stride up the production of OLED panels, it is possible that all future iPhones could sport OLED panels. However, nothing can be guaranteed from these speculations.
Recollecting some previous rumours, Apple is said to launch three new iPhones this year. The 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone (probably iPhone 7s and 7s Plus) devices will be up much before, probably in September. Further, as per Brian White (analyst), the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be available for pre-orders along with the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone devices, however, the availability of the 5.8-inch variant is likely to happen sometime in October-November.
