A New Look at the iPhone 8 Design

iPhone 8: Apple releasing two OLED-backed flagships purely wishful thinking

Apple's release of the PRODUCT (RED) iPhone 7 and 7 Plus last month caught many consumers by surprise, coming just six months before the 10th anniversary handset is due to be announced. "Despite upgraded features like each new flagship iPhone release, the legacy models accounted for nearly a third of iPhones sold in the quarter, the highest percentage since Apple started releasing two new phones each fall in 2014".

Furthermore, Mac Rumors has noted that Kuo added that the delayed production ramp-up is has a possible downside risk to shipments of all the three iPhone models expected to arrive this year. In this field, Apple could surprise us with the launch of their expected iPhone. "The large-format Plus models accounted for 41% of total sales, a steady increase since the launch of the original Plus model in 2015".

Claiming connections to Apple manufacturer Foxconn, Riga-based Twitter user Benjamin Geskin is showing off what he claims to be a dummy model of the iPhone 8.

The report claims Apple could start manufacturing a new display technology called micro-LED. As per previous reports, Apple is planning to implement a bezel-less curved OLED display on the next iPhone but some unsuspected delays in the development recently pointed out that Apple might, in fact, shift to normal OLED displays. If it is true, however, it indicates that the physical redesign of the iPhone 8 is what Apple is betting on, and not its processor performance.

Rumours that Apple was working on a long-distance charging method for its new flagship phone, expected in September, first surfaced late past year. The front sensors and camera are also seen in the image. Other believes this will result in a thinner iPhone 8. Evident from the picture, there is no compartment for a home button and the device does sport a vertical dual camera setup.

The proposed patent is titled "Wireless Charging and Communications Systems With Dual-Frequency Patch Antennas", and refers to using wireless routers and other wireless hardware to keep devices - such as an iPhone or iPad - charged. Apple's invention is created to improve wireless circuitry systems using patch antennas.

But it probably shouldn't have done considering the tech giant has been making products in collaboration with the Aids charity for many years, from iPhone cases back to early generations of the iPod.
