“Next year’s iPhones were already expected to yield the kind of big hardware changes that — the iPhone 7-Plus’ dual-lens camera excepted — were absent from this year’s models,” Eric Jhonsa reports for TheStreet. “A new report suggests the changes could be even larger than previously expected.”
“Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis, who in 2015 was among the first to report the iPhone 6S would contain new haptic feedback technology (we now know it as 3D Touch), said checks indicate that next year’s iPhones will feature ‘a bezel-less design,’ with larger displays and curved edges being placed on devices that have form factors similar to those of the iPhone 7 and 7-Plus,” Jhonsa reports. “Because of the new design, the phones, which he respectively calls the iPhone 8 and 8-Plus, will reportedly sport 5-inch and 5.8-inch displays, larger than the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays found on the 7 and 7-Plus.”
Jhonsa reports, “Curtis also speculates the screen-size upgrades could lead to Apple’s (AAPL) low-end iPhones — a role currently held by the 4-inch iPhone SE — featuring 4.7-inch displays.”
