iPhone 8 is just the beginning
Reports have already confirmed that Apple has ordered its suppliers to boost production of OLED displays and submit prototype screens with resolution that is better than the ones from Samsung. The publication, citing people with deep knowledge of the matter, reported that Apple could be introducing an iPhone with an OLED screen as being just one of several other models to be unveiled.
Edge-To-Edge Screen with No featured Home Button
Rumors have been suggesting that Apple is currently planning to release the upcoming iPhone 8 with an all-display front surface. This means that the up and coming device will feature no bezels or borders, as per Business Insider, citing John Gruber, who is a famous Apple blogger and podcaster.
Goodbye, home button
Apple is reported to be making some major design changes to the next iPhone. The company is said to be removing the iPhone's iconic home button, according to a recent online report. This had suggested that the home button will be replaced with the rumored Touch ID fingerprint sensor that would be built and incorporated into the screen.
All-glass for the iPhone 8
Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed that the iPhone 8 would be featuring a glass front and back design much like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. Kuo also hinted that the Phone will also be using either a stainless steel or aluminum metal casing.
Wireless charging capability
The iPhone 8 may also be coming with a long-range wireless charging ability. Apple is reportedly developing a technology that will charge the device from a very long distance. This feature could end the constant worry of fast battery drainage if the iPhone has the ability to be wirelessly tethered to a charger. The company has already hired engineers to work on the wireless charging system, as well as holding discussions with suppliers for wireless charging chips.
