iPhone 8 release date, features, and specs
What can we expect from the iPhone 8 rumours?
One of the first rumours to circulate about the iPhone 8 was the inclusion of an all-glass OLED display. What is uncertain is whether this screen will be curved, as one report from the Wall Street Journal claimed it would be, only to be contradicted by the research report by TrendForce citing poor production yield and failed drop test results.
What we can say is that this model will be its premium version, and it is very likely that two other models will hit the market at the same time offering cheaper LCD screens. On the face of things, this could be seen as a move by Apple to offer greater variety and pricing options for its customers, although what is more probable is that Apple is suffering from a severe supply shortage of OLED screens.
Foxconn employees also confirmed that the iPhone 8 will somewhere between the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in terms of size, although the new design will shave off some inches by removing the top and bottom bezels, and will feature a larger screen than the iPhone 7 Plus as a result.
A number of scanners are set to feature with the new display, including a built in finger print scanner and a new iris scanner for facial recognition. It is rumoured that the fingerprint scanner will be moved from the front home button, which is now gone, to the back just below the Apple logo.
