New Renders Show What to Expect from the iPhone 8 This Year


The iPhone 8 is expected to be shown off later this year. While there are innumerable renders of the device out there, most of them are just artistic creations with little or nothing to do with Apple’s plans.

But a new set of renderings plans to change that by offering us a very good glimpse of what the iPhone 8 would look like. This concept is created going by what we’ve heard or seen in the rumors so far.

There is no flashy all-glass design out here, and the display is curved around the edges, which we’ve heard about extensively in the leaks. The Touch ID-toting home button is gone, much in line with what we have heard over the past few weeks. There’s a standard earpiece and a front facing camera, although they are much smaller this time around.

Bear in mind that even though this concept is based on what we have heard via numerous reports, it’s too early to tell if these features will be incorporated with this year’s iPhone. Keeping this in mind, we suggest you take them with a pinch of salt.

So far, we’ve heard that the iPhone will sport a curved OLED panel and an edge-to-edge display as illustrated by these rumors. Further, some rumors have talked about the iPhone 8 featuring the same dimensions as the iPhone 7, albeit with a 5.5-inch display. This could be possible due to the reduced bezel space on the top and lower half, respectively. The phone is also said to be all glass.

Expect a blazing fast CPU + GPU combination on board, courtesy of the next-gen A series chip (A11?) bearing the 10nm CPU architecture produced by TSMC. There is also talk of Apple introducing a red variant of the iPhone, otherwise known as (PRODUCT)RED.
