IPhone 8 Has A Notch And Bunny Ears

Just how big is too big for smartphones? This is also said to be because of rumors claim that it could come at an affordable price.

It's one thing to see leaked photos and renders of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7S but it's an entirely different thing to see two prototypes in a video sitting side by side.

Someone quickly made a mock-up of what the new iPhone screen could look like in terms of usable space.

KAZINFORM Independent developer Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered the principle of the virtual Home button from the accidentally-released HomePod firmware, he said on Twitter.

With the iPhone 8 set to have an all-screen front, this means that a small section at the bottom may not be useable for apps, web browsing and other functionality.

While Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities recently suggested that the OLED version of the upcoming iPhone will be launched alongside LCD variants, albeit in limited quantities, a new report from The Korea Herald has indicated that the smartphone might now be unveiled around November.

There are numerous reports that the iPhone 8 might launch as iPhone X since it is an anniversary model and everyone expects the more subtly-revised lineup to be part of the "S" revamp that typically comes one year after the debut of a new generation.

A new YouTube video from Danny Winget shows the iPhone 8's Copper Gold, Silver, and Black replica.

The iconic physical home button is also removed. There have been leaked pictures that have shown iPhone 8 models with fingerprint sensor at back but they are few in number and aesthetically displeasing to say the least. Expected to feature a bezel-less screen, wireless charging and no buttons, it will bring so many bits of technology we've been waiting for Apple to implement. Interestingly, though, most rumours and mock-ups point to a vertically mounted array, with one lens above the other.

Now there is talk about a 1.1-inch increase from the iPhone 7's 4.7-inch display to 5.8-inches.
