A new day spells yet another rumour about the iPhone 8. This time it is claimed that the device will come WITHOUT a curved edge display.
The report, which was published in the Korean Herald, cites an unnamed sourced who claims that the Apple’s first OLED screens will be flat instead of curved like on the Samsung Galaxy 8.
“Apple is highly unlikely to follow the same design of its rival’s. Instead of the curved edge display, it will have a flat screen with bezel-less on the top and bottom alongside the two sides,” the source was quoted as saying. The source also believes that the device will be a lot lighter and thinner than previous models.
It is also believed that Apple’s decision to use OLED screens has forced a delay in the launch of the iPhone 8 – Apples 10th anniversary device according to The Investor.
Respected commentator Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst seems to agree to some extent believing that the iPhone 8 will hit stores “a month or two” after the release of other products at September’s launch. “Apple may unveil its iPhone 8 in September, but it is predicted to go on sale in October or November,” Kuo said.
Regardless of the delay, the iPhone is predicted to do very well. Features such as wireless charging, facial recognition and 3D sensors will mean that it stands out from the crowd. It is also expected to include support for a number of augmented reality features.
