Just days after leaked schematics claimed to show the final version of the iPhone 8, a new report claims Apple is preparing to release three iPhones later this year.
According to a report in Bloomberg, Apple is rumoured to be working on three models: a 4.7 inch model, a 5.5 inch plus sized version and a completely redesigned premium iPhone that will include a curved glass OLED display that fits the entire front of the phone.
The report claims the display on the premium version will be the same size as that of the iPhone 7 Plus but with a body a similar size to the iPhone 7.
As well as the edge to edge display there will also be an improved dual camera and no home button, which instead could be embedded into the screen, similar to the setup found on the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Apple is apparently also testing embedding a fingerprint scanner within the display, but is running into technical issues which suggests it could be placed elsewhere in the final version.
The new phones could also include wireless charging and a USB-C port instead of Apple’s trademark Lightning Port.
However, the report also claimed that the launch of the iPhone 8, which may actually be called the iPhone X, could be delayed due a shortage in supplies.
Bloomberg says that Apple may have to delay the release of the anniversary version of the iPhone, which was tipped to be released in September by one or two months because of constraints in Apple’s supply chain.
