Many rumors pointed out that iPhone 8 will have an edgeless OLED display with a curved design. This got every iPhone user excited but we’re sorry to rain on your parade. New reports have emerged that suggest that the curved design is off the mark in iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 being launched this year will have the same flat design like the iPhone 7.
“We anticipate Apple will adopt a flat implementation of OLED design on their special iPhone model,” Lam said who is an analyst on MacRumors, “which is analogous to the current 2.5D glass design.”
The tricky part is that there are a lot of reports on the internet talking about the new iPhone 8 display. In light of this it is a bit confusing but recent reports have it that the company still has not finalized a design. The prototypes for the iPhone 8 are still under consideration as to what will make the final cut. We’ve taken all of these rumors onto an account to decide that blindly assuming the new display to be curved is just plain wrong. If someone claims that iPhone will have a curve screen then it is time to bash those rumors because there is no finalized design.
Straight screen or curved design? results not finalized
One thing we’re sure about whether or not iPhone 8 has a curved screen is that it will be the largest upgrade cycle in the history of iPhone. It is expected to shatter a number of sales records. Coming to more features that we think will be in the new iPhone 8, there is improved battery life. The phone will also have wireless charging capabilities not to mention and improved IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. Siri will also get an upgrade. There is also facial recognition along with many other features.
The release date for the phone is a bit on the downside for many iPhone enthusiasts. It is anticipated that the launch window of September will be delayed to October or even early November this year. Mass production of the phone is not expected to commence till September. This timetable is something that we may have to get used to.
