iPhone 8 is one of the most anticipated smartphones this year. Apple is expected to introduce a special iPhone to celebrate ten years of iPhone. There have been a lot of rumors floating around in the press regarding the next generation iPhone’s new look and impressive features.
According to the latest reports, the upcoming iPhone 8 feature a “water drop design” with rear curves similar to the original iPhone that was unveiled back in 2007. Today’s reports run counter to previous rumors which claimed that the upcoming iPhone 8 would sport a flat-backed design with all-glass front and back just like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s.
Reports also say that Apple will be using 3D glass with soft curves and metal frame that cover around the next iPhone’s border. In reality, Apple has been using the flat-backed design on its current iPhone models since the days of the iPhone 4.
Back in 2007, the original iPhone came with a curved aluminum and plastic design which was a fan-favorite, while the second iPhone 3G used plastic alone design. Tech experts say that the next generation iPhone will feature the same design as the first iPhone, but it will use the all-glass just like the iPhone 3G.
The upcoming iPhone 8 is believed to come with an overhauled design and tons of new aspects when compared to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Besides, Apple is also rumored to launch up to three new iPhone models this year. Tech experts say that three new iPhone models include a premium iPhone 8 with OLED display, wireless charging, and all-glass design, and two standard 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch iPhone 7s models.
Rumors also say that new design and compelling features that are found on the premium iPhone 8 could make the new handset cost up to $1000 or more. In reality, a $1000 iPhone may not sound outrageous, as Apple has already released the 256GB version of iPhone 7 Plus that gets close to the price.
