The iPhone 8 is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated smartphones of recent memory, and for good reason too.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the first generation iPhone and many people are dubbing the upcoming device as an ’Anniversary Edition’.
Rumours about the iPhone 8 suggest the device will feature a rather innovative design, one that will excite consumers just as much as the original iPhone did when it was first released on June 29, 2007.
These rumours were supported in part this week by the leak of alleged renderings of the iPhone 8, showcasing a full-front display with minimal bezels.
The renderings were uploaded by MacRumors and come by way of noted Weibo leaker KK who has on previous occasions shared accurate details about upcoming devices.
The renderings feature measurements of 137.54mm by 67.54mm wide, almost identical to the iPhone 7’s dimensions, and a display that measures 5.768-inches diagonally and almost complete covers the front of the device.
Indeed, the renderings show a bezel measurement of just 4mm around all four sides of the device, resulting in a practically bezel-less display.
Other notable features found in the renderings included 2.5D curved glass around the edges, a dual camera with an LED flash between the two sensors, and the absence of a dedicated Home button.
It’s hard to believe that Apple’s line of smartphones have only been around for a decade when you consider how many models and variations the company has developed in the years since the first iPhone went on sale.
Thanks to the company’s dedication in developing breakthrough technology, it’s easy to imagine Apple dominating the smartphone market for the next ten years.
