The iPhone 7 launch is yet to happen and a lot of rumors and leaks related to the smartphone have already started surfacing online keeping Apple fans busy on imagining what the upcoming device might bring.
While we are yet to witness what Apple has got to roll out of its sleeve in another two months as the iPhone 7, the talks of what the iPhone 8 that will be launched in 2017 will look like have already started.
As per a recent report, the 2017 iPbone might be called iPhone 8 and not iPhone 7s. We can expect to see that the iPhone will use OLED displays that will be supplied by Samsung, its staunch rival instead of the customary LCD display.
Now, GizmoChina has come up with a slew of concepts of the iPhone 8 to be launched in 2017 showing the OLED screen. The concept is by Tobias Buettner, a designer and it features the iPhone 8 with no resembles with the existing iPhones or the upcoming iPhone 7.
No physical home button
The iPhone 8 likely coming in 2017 is leaked to sport no physical home button as the home button is seen to be integrated within the display. This is something that we have not seen in an iPhone ever.
Glass all over
The concept of iPhone 8 shows that it could feature a glass cover at its back like the iPhone 4. Also, there seems to be glass all over the body of the iPhone 8 concept except for the top and bottom edges that are made of metal. The glass seems to go over the edges and fuses at the sides.
As the iPhone 8 will mark the 10th year anniversary of the iPhones, we can expect Apple to overhaul the design of the device completely. But an all-glass slim body might actually render the device slippery. Anyways, we can't confirm anything before it is official.
The pretty and slim looking iPhone 8 concept appears to rock a dual-camera setup at its rear with much smaller sensors as compared to the other smartphones with a dual-camera setup. There seem to be capacitive buttons at the sides despite the thin profile.
No iPhone 7s
As mentioned above, Apple is speculated to skip the iPhone 7s and launch the iPhone 8 in 2017. As per Sun Changxu, an industry analyst, the iPhone 8 might witness an autumn release in 2017 and it will feature a 10nm process based A11 processor.
Apple has followed the customary practice of naming in such a way that we can expect the iPhone 7s to be launched in 2017. But, the analyst claims that the iPhone 8 will replace the iPhone 7s to mark a milestone.
Wireless charging support
The iPhone 7 allegedly coming in 2017 is likely claimed to arrive with support for wireless charging and water-resistant build. Still, we can see many incremental upgrades in the device.
