Apple iPhone 8 rumored to have larger, curved screens extending to edges

Close

The only thing Samsung did right in Galaxy Note 7 is making a compact design with a good screen size and at the same time, they added curved edges to make the things look attractive.

Now according to rumors, Apple might borrow a page in Samsung's playbook. The iPhone 8 will have a larger screen with curved display, according to a Barclays Research note sent to MackRumors.

According to Citing Asian Supply checks and Barclays Research analysts, Apple will switch from the current 4.7 inch iPhone 7 and 5.5 inches 7 plus to larger 5 and 5.8-inch display for the iPhone 8.

The iPhone 8 might sport on OLED screen. The screen will reportedly extend edge-to-edge with virtually no bezels, perhaps like Xiaomi's Mi Mix.

Apple copying to Samsung seems unlikely, but it's worth nothing the company was granted a patent for curved screens that are similar to Samsung's Galaxy Edge smartphones.

The iPhone 8 will have a brand-new glass and metal design reminiscent of the iPhone 4. It also has an iconic home button and embeds the Touch ID sensor underneath the display and possibly Sport wireless charging over a distance.

According to rumors, the iPhone 8 will have a faster processing speed with a new iOS version. The other rumors which are far less likely include a ceramic case and Digital Crown with better cameras.

If the rumors are true, then the screen size will be larger than that of the iPhone 6, which was released in 2014. It could also include features like biometric additions - iris or facial scanning.

The iPhone 8 is still under development and Apple will probably release it next year - the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.
