I might be to pragmatic but the phone will look nothing like the concept. The whole design is based on a screen never before seen in a device. I highly doubt Apple developed a new screen and manufacturing process and is going to let Samsung build it. I also doubt Samsung would give Apple new tech and not put it on their own models.

The iPhone 8 will be everything and yet still be less than what the S6 already was and the S7 has already left behind and the S8 will already be ahead of. I am sure being the "anniversary" model, the marketing will be all hype and the fools will run out an spend $1000, and find its the same phone as the iPhone 7 was, just with a new design. Wait, with that design language everyone claimed they hated with the Galaxy S6/S7 edge models, but will now love. All the claims about Samsung phones with curved screens and how its just a useless gimmick, will now be loved an applauded and Apple won't even have any edge features. No one is going to complain about oversaturated colors, knowing that Apple won't have a feature that allows you to change the color mode or even the resolution. No one is going to make false claims about OLED burn-in. No one is going to complain about how a near-bezeless phone is easier to break and how they wont find cases to protect the phone and blah blah b;ah. Every lame duck excuse they made about not buying a Galaxy S6/S7/Note 7 edge will all go out the window and be totally forgotten because their iPhone will finally still only be as good as the S6 was 3 years ago and they will be happy and yet still show hate and malice towards Samsung who provides 30% of the iPhone parts which gives it the quality it has, considering those are the parts that matter most - e.g---CPU, RAM, DISPLAY, STORAGE. I can't wait to se all the 360 BS PA's is going to write in their first review article and how everything that was a "con" for the Galaxy S, will now be a "pro" for the iPhone, Watch as the iPhone Anniversary Edition will be the first phone to get a perfect 9.9/10, even though its reparability score will be 0, it will have all the claimed cons of past and present Galaxy device like glass that easier to break because a bezeless design provides less protection... The biggest 360 the fanboys will do in history!
