A recent report fresh from South Korea is suggesting that industry sources have information regarding the design and some hardware features of the upcoming iPhone 8. The 10th anniversary iPhone is said to come with a very familiar form factor because it will be paying homage to the original iPhone that the late Steve Jobs introduced way back 2007.
According to a source, a report last Monday noted that the Cupertino giant is getting inspiration for the design of the new iPhone from the smartphones it introduced from 2007 to 2009 or from the original iPhone to the iPhone 3GS. The form factor of the first three iPhones was known to be as "water drop design" because the devices looked like they were dripping water droplets when placed upside down. Moreover, the "water drop design" mentioned does not sound like the "teardrop design" that was rumored ahead of the Apple's iPhone 4s.
Also mentioned in the recent report is that Apple will use 3D glass with soft curves and a metal frame around the iPhone 8's border. Specified from a source, the back glass is set to be more dramatically curved than the front glass, too, while noting KGI Securities believes 2.5D glass for the front. Other rumored features include wireless charging, a new 5.8-inch display with a function area, and a revolutionary 3D sensing front camera. Some reports claimed the dramatically different iPhone will launch later in the year than usual and carry a towering price over previous models.
Also, iPhone 8 is said to powered by the A11 or the A11 Fusion and a 3GB or 4GB of RAM are also expected. Interestingly, Apple fans will expect bigger, better, and curved displays. An all-glass design, a new embedded home button, and wireless charging are just some of the thrilling features Apple is allegedly working on for the upcoming iPhone 8.
