iPhone 8

The 10th anniversary iPhone will be released this year and it’s shaping up to be a big update. Predictions so far include a glass and stainless steel redesign with a bezel-less OLED display, a new in-display Touch ID paired with facial recognition, updates to 3D Touch, improved waterproofing, wireless charging, and more.

Analysts are predicting that the iPhone 8 will outsell the iPhone 6 as there is a larger base of iPhone users waiting to upgrade than ever before.
Purported iPhone 8 screen protector shows nearly bezel-less design, front camera & sensor cutout.

Building on various recently leaked parts, an alleged iPhone 8 screen protector is now making the rounds on Chinese social networking site Weibo. The screen protector was also shared on SlashLeaks and Twitter and reflects the iPhone 8’s smaller bezels and front-facing camera and speaker cutouts.
As you can see in the above image, courtesy of Twitter leaker Benjamin Geskin, the tempered glass screen protector has incredibly small bezels on all four sides of the display, which corroborates the endless other reports that have claimed the iPhone 8 will offer a nearly bezel-less front design.

The video below offers a hands-on look at the screen protector, which gives us an idea as to how the iPhone 8 will shape up in terms of size. Previous reports have pegged the device as having dimensions of 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm, versus the iPhone 7 at 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm and iPhone 7 Plus at 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm. This means the iPhone 8 will fall right in between the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, though it will be slightly thicker than both models.
Meanwhile, MobileFun lists an “Olixar” iPhone 8 full cover screen protector. The online retailer says the protector offers “toughness, high visibility, and sensitivity, all in one package.” Furthermore, it offers “edge to edge screen protection for black phones.”

One interesting thing these screen protectors show is how Apple will handle the cutouts for the front-facing camera, proximity sensor, and ear speaker. While some reports had suggested the sensors would actually be behind the display, more recent sources have pegged Apple as offering a slight cutout in the display to house those technologies. Combined with the deep blacks of the iPhone 8 OLED display, however, Apple will likely make the top of the device appear as all display, despite the cutouts.

iPhone 8 dimensions have been rumored before, and this leaked screen protector corroborates much of what we had previously heard. The iPhone 8 is expected to feature things such as wireless charging, waterproofing, a glass back, advanced augmented reality features, new biometric capabilities such as facial recognition, and much more.

It remains to be seen where Touch ID will be placed, but most recent reports have pegged the sensor as being embedded in the iPhone 8 display.

Wistron CEO let slip that upcoming iPhone will be waterproof and have wireless charging.

As we move closer to the unveiling of the next generation iPhones, more manufacturers are talking about device details. This time CEO Robert Hwang of Wistron, Apple’s primary iPhone manufacturer in India, has confirmed that the upcoming iPhone will be waterproof and feature wireless charging (Nikkei).

Just this week, new glass panels purporting to be from the upcoming iPhones have given us another glimpse into the devices’ designs. Showing off an iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and iPhone 8, the images indicated that the glass back panels would open the door for wireless charging across all the devices.

Today’s news from Hwang helps substantiate that wireless charging may be coming to at least one of the devices. In a statement after the company’s shareholder’s meeting, Hwang told reporters:

    “Assembly process for the previous generations of [iPhones] have not changed much, though new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit.”

According to Hwang, Wistron’s India facility is currently making “a small number” of handsets for Apple. He states the growth in manufacturing will hinge on relations between Apple and the Indian government.

Without getting into specific numbers, he went on to say that he expects that Wistron as a whole will ship more smartphones in 2017 than 2016. By increasing the use of automation, the company will be able to combat rising labor costs in China.

Apple has been dealing with the Indian government in ongoing negotiations to bring iPhone manufacturing to the country. Reports indicated that the government rejected Apple’s demands for concessions, but that hasn’t stopped the company from moving forward.

Earlier today, Apple supplier Largan confirmed that they would be shipping 3D depth-sensing lenses in the second half of 2017. Whether those will be included in any upcoming Apple products was not specifically mentioned.
New iPhone 8 report claims in-screen Touch ID, renders show bezel-less design w/ iOS 11 [Gallery]

Apple earlier this week unveiled the next major software release for iPhone and iPad, iOS 11. The iPhone 8 this fall will almost certainly be the first device to ship with iOS 11, and now a new set of renders imagine the upcoming flagship device running Apple’s latest operating system. Furthermore, the report adds a few additional details about the iPhone 8…

Today’s report out of iNews claims that the upcoming iPhone 8 will feature a nearly bezel-less front design with a cutout at the top for the ear speaker and front-facing camera. This is contrary to some reports that had claimed the front-facing camera would be behind the display.

Furthermore, the report claims the front of the device will feature a “laser and infrared sensor” in conjunction with the front-facing “3D dual-camera lens system” to add support for facial and iris recognition.

The biggest question about the iPhone 8 continues to be the location of Touch ID. Some reports and renders have imagined the device with rear Touch ID, while others have claimed the technology will be implemented directly beneath the OLED display. Today’s report suggests that the iPhone 8 model Apple has chosen to move forward with “will feature Touch ID technology built into the front-facing glass.

Today’s report also adds that the iPhone 8 will have a “large pad on the inside” to enable wireless charging, something that will be possible thanks to its all glass design. As many other sources have claimed, the report says the iPhone 8 will feature a vertical dual-camera setup for augmented reality capabilities, which has further been corroborated with Apple’s ARKit.

As with almost any iPhone 8 report, today’s piece should be taken with a grain of salt. While some things seem nearly all-but-confimred at this point, we still hear conflicting reports on a regular basis, especially for factors such as the location of Touch ID.

Nevertheless, it is interesting to see iOS 11 running on what could be the iPhone 8 design. Much of iOS 11 feels optimized for OLED and a bezel-less design, so check out the renders below for an idea of what that could look like. Let us know what you think of this design paired with iOS 11 in the comments.
Sketchy report says 2018 ‘iPhone 9’ to feature OLED screens in two new sizes
iPhone 8
Although it seems silly to consider the 2018 iPhone whilst we are still deep in rumors about the iPhone 8, Apple as a company works on much longer timelines.

As such, ‘The Bell’ (via Korea Herald) is reporting that Apple has agreed a deal with Samsung to supply OLED panels for the ‘iPhone 9’. The report claims the phones will include larger 5.28-inch and 6.46-inch OLED displays …

For the iPhone 8, we are expecting a radical new form factor made out of stainless steel and glass, with the design focusing on a near bezel-less 5.8-inch OLED screen on the front face.

It seems logical that Apple would continue to use OLED in the generation after that as well, although the suggestion of entirely-new screen sizes is surprising.

 The report said the iPhone 9 is expected to come in two OLED models — 5.28- and 6.46-inch display sizes. Samsung’s OLED shipment is also likely to be more than double at 180 million units.
“Other details such as screen design and functions could be adjusted considering the phone is still under development.”

The very specific claims of 5.28-inch and 6.46-inch screen dimensions are interesting in that, if true, Apple would be introducing another change in iPhone form factor in 2018. Contrast that scenario to the iPhone 7, which uses the same general chassis design as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

For this year, we are expecting Apple to announce two iterative updates to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus alongside the radical new ‘iPhone 8’.

Whilst these ‘7s phones’ will use LCD panels this year, the notion of two new OLED panel sizes for next year could mean that Apple transitions to an all-OLED iPhone lineup as soon as next year.

For iPhone 8, Samsung has reportedly signed a deal with Apple to make more than 70 million OLED screens in 2017. The report from today says that Samsung’s OLED shipments to Apple could ‘more than double’ to 180 million units in 2018.
