iPhone 8 to be totally new design

iPhone 8 to be totally new design

The hotly-anticipated iPhone 7 may have only just been released, but already Apple fans are looking towards the company’s next handset – the iPhone 8. While details on the iPhone 8 are scarce, new reports suggest it will have a totally different look from previous handsets and will come with better cameras.

An unnamed employee at an Apple site in Herzliya, Israel, where hardware is being developed for the iPhone 8, has leaked some details about the new handset. Given that 2017 will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, it would make sense that Apple has something big planned.

But the unnamed employee told Business Insider that the iPhone 8 would be ‘different’ from previous handsets, which have been critiqued as being too similar. Until now, little has been known about Apple’s next iPhone, although reports by a source speaking to Nikkei Asian Review have said that it will have a curved screen.

If those rumours are true, the iPhone 8 could rival the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge which came out in February this year. In January, Apple revisited a patent filed in 2013, which proposed a curved ‘glass’ case made from an intricate fusion of metals melted together. The employee also mentioned that the iPhone 8 would have a better camera – although this usually happens with every update.
