iPhone will celebrate its ten-year anniversary next year. Apple says big change will come in their products. Phone is now tipped to sport bezel-less design with curved edges on all sides.
Latest leak comes from Barclays’ analysts Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn who cite supply chain sources they met during a trip to Asia. The analysts claim that the iPhone 8 models will have the same sizes overall, but their display sizes will increase to 5-inch and 5.8-inch because of the bezel-less design vision.
These new displays are said to be more battery efficient, and offer better colour accuracy and deeper blacks. Also the plastic OLED panels will allow the iPhone 8 screen to bend at the edges and introduce curved-edges on all sides.
OLED panels are going to be exclusive to the iPhone 8 Plus model, and will be manufactured by Samsung and LG for now.
Analysts also suggest that Apple’s 3D Touch may see a change to a new ‘film-based solution’. iPhone 8 will come with advanced wireless charging technology that will allow users to charge the phone even from 15 feet away, without the need of a wireless charging plate.
