It is true that the iPhone 8 will have a similar set of features just like the Samsung Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 comes with a curved display, but the new leaks confirmed iPhone 8 will not get a curved screen. This is possibly the most accurate leak. The reason is, it comes from renowned tipster Onleaks. They released the leaks based on CAD images.
The Computer Aided Design (CAD) is a 3D version of the product. They are sent to manufacturing operations before production. And since this new version is based on the CAD images of iPhone 8, they are more accurate than the previous leaks we came across.
Apple iPhone 8 design upgrades
In this new leak, the Apple iPhone 8 measures 143.5*70.9*7.7 mm. Thus, you can say it is slightly thicker than the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. According to these images, the iPhone 8 will get curved stainless steel edges just like the iPhone 4 and 4s. Just like the Galaxy S8, the iPhone 8 too, will have a glass back. If you consider the latest CAD results, then Apple is going in a different direction.
Apple will install the curved glass design on the front stainless steel border. But the display beneath the glass will not be a curved one. Apple used this type of design for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 too. Also, iPhone 8 is the first phone to have an OLED panel. Apple already ordered 70 million OLED panels from Samsung.
Why are OLED panels better?
The OLED panels have got their own light source, so the contrast of OLED panels is better than LCD. And this is why the OLED displays can conserve more battery juice than the LCD displays. Apple will also use the OIS for both the lens in the rear dual camera. Apple will also include the 3D sensing facial recognition feature in the dual front facing
The tech giant will also add the 3D sensing facial recognition feature in the dual front facing the camera as well as better speakers. Chances are, Apple might bring the Edge to Edge display, if not the curved ones. So, it can be better than the curved displays. It’s also missing a headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor.
