TheiPhone 8 will offer a design similar to the first model released in 2007, according to analysts who spoke with the Korean site ETNews. It is said that Apple’s future flagship phone this year will adopt the “water drop” style paying homage to the first iPhone Edge / 2G.
The iPhone 8 of 2017 could thus have a softer rear curve and more rounded than today’s metal shells. The Cupertino brand would use three-dimensional glass material to achieve this result. Of course, the phone will be much larger and thinner than the first iPhone. Rumors also suggest a 5.8-inch screen.
The possibility of adopting a design similar to that of the first smartphone of the brand comes to put an end to all the rumors of a curved and borderless screen. ETNews confirms that the iPhone 8 panel will be relatively flat. It could be curved, but not as much as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Little has been said about the design of the 2017 iPhone 8 case. As a result, there is no hard evidence to support the Korean site’s claims. The next few weeks will tell us more.
