The iPhone 8 is going to be the largest iPhone Apple has ever made, according to a new report.
The Cupertino tech firm is expected to release an iPhone 7s and 7s Plus later this year, which will be the same size as their predecessors.
However, the real new phone – the iPhone 8 – will sport a 5.8 inch OLED display making it even bigger than the iPhone 7 Plus, according to a report by Nikkei Asian Review.
By comparison, the current iPhone 7 Plus is 5.5 inches.
Apple is set to save space on the iPhone 8 by removing the bezels allowing the display to stretch right to the edge of the phone, allowing the screen to take up most of the front of the phone.
The report also says the iPhone 8 will have a curved edge display, enabling even more space saving on the front of the handset.
Another change in the design of the display on the iPhone 8 is that it may not be the same as on current models, with the new handset including a function area at the bottom that will work in the same manner as the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro, which adapts and offers up different options to the user depending on what tasks they are doing.
Other new features included in the iPhone 8 will see the addition of the 3D technology which will scan the user’s face enabling them to unlock their phone.
Of course all this new technology will come at a price and according to previous reports the iPhone 8 could be the most expensive iPhone to date, costing upwards of $1,000.
