iPhone 8 Looks Stunning In New Render As 2 Vital Features Receive Patent
Apple's highly awaited iPhone 8 will come next month at the WWDC or in September as tradition dictates or later in 2017, or even next year. That's how unsure the industry is about the hyped anniversary iPhone. If there is one thing that tech pundits can agree on is that Apple is leaving no stones unturned in order to come up with the best iPhone ever. However, a new set of renders indicate that the iPhone 8 will indeed look stunning. The renders also show that Apple may have gone with some rather interesting decisions with the flagship device.
Engadget got hold of a CAD file of the smartphone's chassis from a reliable source from the accessory industry. The file contained details of the supposed iPhone 8 which Engadget used as basis for its own renders. The new iPhone 8 renders show that the flagship smartphone will sport an all-screen design made of glass giving it that stunning and elegant vibe and feel. The glass body may also mean that the iPhone 8 will support wireless charging.
While the iPhone 8 looks great thanks to the glass body, the renders also shows that Apple is sticking to the controversial vertical dual camera layout. Another potential design flaw is the bigger camera bump. Engadget noted that the camera system is integrated with the flash and microphone which explains its heftier appearance. The renders also indicated that the standby button is slightly larger than normal. Engadget also claimed that the handset will be bigger than expected with the supposed 4.7- and 5.5-inch models coming in at 5 and the 5.8 inches, respectively.
Tech Radar gathered news from Patently Apple that the tech giant had 56 patents recently granted. Two of those patents revolved around an edge-to-edge display and the integration of the Touch ID fingerprint scanner under the display. Both patents indicate that the next iPhone will have minimal bezels adding fuel to the rumors that the iPhone 8 will look exceptionally stunning.
