  • iPhone 8 marks the 10th anniversary of Apple's iPhone.
  • iPhone 8 may not come with a curved OLED display, but just with a slight curve

The iPhone 8 marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and is supposedly a major overhaul to the existing design. This is the reason why the company is expected to launch three variants and the iPhone 8 is touted to unlike the other two, allegedly iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

One of the killer features for the iPhone 8 was led by the rumours around a curved OLED display. But, that's most likely not happening. Nikkei, the Japanese publication, reports that the iPhone 8 may come with a slight curve, but do not expect an edge display just like the Galaxy S7. The slight curve won't provide any other functionality either.

 

Another report, and this time from MacRumours, reaffirms that the device will come with a slight, gentle curve. Citing people familiar with the matter, the report adds that it will come with a 5.8-inch display, out of which 5.2-inch will be usable area.

 

This piece of news could be disappointing to fans expecting a curved display. The iPhone 8 is definitely among the biggest smartphone announcements to be made this year. While there is no concrete news on what type of display Apple will finally go ahead with, some other unconfirmed specs include a new red colour variant, wireless charging, water resistance, A11 chipset and there have been multiple reports on the dual camera capability too.
