Word on the street is that Apple is working on launching a gold color scheme this year, in line with the new iPhone X, the iPhone X Plus, and the 6.1-inch iPhone.
The iPhone X launched earlier this month, but the rumor mill (and, sometimes, the renders created as byproducts of that cycle) refuse to give up on what’s next.
This year, there are three new iPhones. Two that bring back a familiar design, with bezels right up front, with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. And the other, the iPhone X, which aims to reduce the bezels in a big way.
The iPhone 8 is expected to be unveiled in the early part of September, but with only a few weeks to go, there’s still time for some new concepts to surface.
We’ve come to a point where Apple has effectively confirmed the design of the iPhone 8, long before it was meant to be, but there’s still plenty of time to see concept images.
While some third-party companies are already convinced of the iPhone 8’s design, some concept designers are still going to work creating alternate visions.
We’ve been hearing rumors and analyst reports about the iPhone 8 for months now. Part of the routine is, eventually, seeing concept images and videos based on all that data.
Like anything, there are good concept images/videos and there are bad ones. This new video from ConceptsiPhones that shows off the oft-rumored iPhone 8 falls into the former category.
A new iPhone 8 concept designed by Hungarian designer Gabor Balogh envisions the next iPhone coming with a translucent design that will take cues from what the rear camera can see. The device would also feature a virtual home button to quickly toggle Siri.
According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a good track record when it comes to predicting Apple’s product plans based on his supply chain sources, iPhone 8 will feature a function area below the display.
