Check out mockups of the Apple iPhone 8 running iOS 11, including the
This morning, we learned that the infamous "notch" found on renders of the Apple iPhone 8, will probably not be covered up by Apple as some had thought. According to today's report, the screen to the left of the notch will show the time, while the right side will show cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity strength and the battery icon. With that information in mind, some mockups of what iOS 11 might look like on the iPhone 8 have been disseminated by tweet.

As you can see on the images inside the slideshow, the notch stands out like a soar thumb although it remains to be seen how noticeable it will be when the phone is being used. September 12th is the rumored date when Apple is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 7s, Apple iPhone 7s Plus and the tenth anniversary model that everyone on the planet has been calling the Apple iPhone 8.

With the latest pricing range forecast to be $1,000-$1,400, the iPhone 8 will feature an OLED edge-to-edge display, 3D facial recognition, a virtual home button, and more. With September 12th  just two weeks away, make sure to check in often for the latest rumors and news pertaining to what is the most anticipated iPhone model of all time.

All I can say is, if any other OEM, especially Samsung had notched the sensor bezel into the display area, they would have been criticized from sun up to sun down for it. But its Apple so its OK, because they can do no wrong. The phone itself is not terrible, but it isn't great either. But the notch being in the viewing area is totally stupid.

"All I can say is," Oh here we go... "if any other OEM, especially Samsung had notched the sensor bezel into the display area, they would have been criticized from sun up to sun down for it." f**king called it. Seriously man, Samsung is the tech media's pride and joy, they'd be fine even with a sensor array notch. Stop complaining like a bitch about every little thing. "But its Apple so its OK, because they can do no wrong." :/ "The phone itself is not terrible, but it isn't great either." This phone could run on solar power, feed needy children in North Korea, and cure Cancer and it still wouldn't be good enough for you. Shut... the f**k... up. "But the notch being in the viewing area is totally stupid." And having put your fingerprint scanner where only NBA players can reach is just as, if not more idiotic. Don't see you s**tting on that. Oh right, your God Sammy has no equal. Sorry for crapping on your religion, again.

You can hate or love it but he's 100% correct and you know it....at least on this point. In 2015 in PA, Samsung throws features against the wall and sees what sticks. In 2017 on PA, Samsung didn't add enough features and it's boring. -try to deny that fact and the hypocrisy of it. You can trype whatever you want and throw whatever Trumpian twitter temper tantrum expletives you want into a typed comment, but criticism goes one way and one way only on this site.

How do you go from:"You can hate or love it but he's 100% correct and you know it...." To this: "at least on this point." In a single sentence? Do you understand how percentiles work? He can't make a grandiose statement, and only get one part of it right, lol. Moving on: "In 2015 in PA, Samsung throws features against the wall and sees what sticks." "In 2017 on PA, Samsung didn't add enough features and it's boring." Color me f**king shocked that different people writing different articles about the same thing have differing opinions. Shocked I say! Oh, what's that? Said articles are also two years apart? Hmmm... can humans not change their minds in a span of two years without causing their cerebral cortex to melt? Lastly, is PA a hive mind to you people or something? Are all the writers collectively supposed to think the same way about every phone? "try to deny that fact and the hypocrisy of it." You need to learn what facts are... because those aren't what you think they are. "You can trype whatever you want and throw whatever Trumpian twitter temper tantrum expletives you want into a typed comment," So wait... I'm "Trumpian" now? Props on the cool term... btw. "but criticism goes one way and one way only on this site." Yep... it goes the way that more clicks will be generated. You Samsung fanboys are incredibly profitable, you realize that, right? As soon as you see a headline you do not agree with, you come out in droves to defend Sammy. You idiots don't even realize you're being played for ad revenue, lol. Congrats on you gents being so disillusioned that PA could take advantage of you... GG.

"Yep... it goes the way that more clicks will be generated. You Samsung fanboys are incredibly profitable, you realize that, right?" I had no idea that PA was in business to make money based on clicks and ad revenue (which I thought you guys hated companies that lived on ads...add that to your list of hypocritical things if you still have room). Thanks for enlightening me, champ. Unfortunately, some of us like getting news from multiple sources, including outlets we disagree with, in order to prevent living in the information bubble that you apparently enjoy. And as long as they allow comments, then people can and should exercise their ability to call them out on their ability to be selectively malleable on their principles depending on the manufacturer. "Said articles are also two years apart" Yes genius, said articles are 2 years apart because one OEM has changed their approach in a 2 year period. If they changed in a 2 month period, then the articles would be 2 months apart. Now do you get it? "Humans can change their minds" Yes. When Apple tells them too. Remember opinions on big phones? I bet you do. Opinions change, principles shouldn't. Big yesterday is big today unless rulers are now subject to inflation. You, me, and we both know that if any site gives Apple bad press then their credentials are pulled. Fortunately, some of us are subject to PA's lack of objectivity regarding the brand they refer to as "iconic" or the "king".

"I had no idea that PA was in business to make money based on clicks and ad revenue (which I thought you guys hated companies that lived on ads...add that to your list of hypocritical things if you still have room)." A) How did you THINK this site operated? If course they use add as revenue... it's a BLOG!!! B) What? Who said we hate companies who use ads as revenue? You realize Google, Facebook, and Snapchat all exist on iOS too, right? That's where the majority of their revenue comes from. "Unfortunately, some of us like getting news from multiple sources, including outlets we disagree with, in order to prevent living in the information bubble that you apparently enjoy." Then why the hell are you whining about coverage if you KNOW this site's poragative? Is all of Samsung's fanbase masochistically delusional? "Yes genius, said articles are 2 years apart because one OEM has changed their approach in a 2 year period. If they changed in a 2 month period, then the articles would be 2 months apart. Now do you get it?" Are you doing Coke? WTF are you even talking about here? "Yes. When Apple tells them too. Remember opinions on big phones?" You: Remember that thing... that time... from that place? Me: Bruh... lay off the blunts. No one cares about what happened "that time". "You, me, and we both know that if any site gives Apple bad press then their credentials are pulled." That's not an Apple exclusive practice. MSFT does that, and I'm pretty sure most companies with any marketing budget determine who get access. "Fortunately, some of us are subject to PA's lack of objectivity regarding the brand they refer to as "iconic" or the "king"." Because you're so f**king objective, amirite? You come to a BLOG, get angry that said blog doesn't agree with you, throw a fit, and bitch about objectivity? Holy hypocrisy Harry... we got a live one!!! Sit down some damn where and chill.

A) I should have clearly spelled out for you that I was being sarcastic. I should have known you were too dense to see that. To be clear, I can clearly see the items I searched for on Amazon are still available just to the right of your comment. And I've seen PA's crusade against ad blockers. So you're also clear, thanks again for enlightening me. S/ S/ S/ S/ B)I don't get angry. I do enjoy making you type 4-letter words with little stars in them. So, who is the angry one that they get to the point they have to "fake cuss" in a comments section? C) Whining about coverage: Answered in the original comment. Why are you whining about my comment to the coverage? D)You remember that thing:. Bezels, widgets, aspect ratio, notifications....are pretty specific and not just "that thing". Since you yourself on on record on the 2:1 aspect ratio, we'll just see what you think about "that thing". My guess is , "Apple will show these guys how to implement the 2:1 aspect ratio".

One more thing, just so you're ready: In a few weeks, let's all see how much opinions change on the "weird" 2:1 aspect ratio. My guess is the aspect ratio will now be good and bezels will be bad. My guess is : 4. CreeDiddy (Posts: 978; Member since: 04 Nov 2011) It will grow on millions of users overtime.... That time is called "whenever the hell Apple tells you it's time".

Trust me, the "notch" will be a deal breaker even for some of the biggest Apple fans. The notch was an easy solution to a simple engineering problem. It just shows what kind of engineering and leadership goes on behind the scenes. By that I mean lazy engineering and stupid leadership.

In your eyes, Samsung can do no wrong. Lay off the kool-aid for a bit.

27. AxelFoley unregistered

Based on what I've read, in his eyes, Samsung has done wrong in battery size, removal of SD cards (fixed), removal of IR blaster, and non removable batteries. Now let's look at the eyes of Apple fanatics through the years; big screens are bad until they aren't, we don't need widgets, we don't need pull down notifications, I don't need haptic feedback, I don't care about bezels, benchmarks are useless (2014)...benchmarks are everything (2017), paper specs are useless (except 64 bit), crashes don't matter, NFC is pointless, Apple will show everyone how to do true wireless charging...if not..their qi standard wireless charging will be "effortless", the in screen fingerprint scanner will be revolutiona.....obsolete, I don't need multitasking cards or do I?, Good artists copy, great artists steal...unless it's another company, then they are just a bunch of following, copying copiers. My personal favorite, "giving the user a choice is a poor excuse."

Well you and many others are criticizing Apple for it. I don’t see what you’re complaining about.

I agree. I'd rather keep some bezel than to have a silly "notch" interrupting the display. LG V30 seems like the hottest smartphone to get at this point, or maybe the pixel XL 2.

I think the notch could be fine if it were black and blended perfectly with the display when off or on. But highlighting it like the latest rumors, as though it's a feature rather than a compromise, just calls attention to the compromise. In my opinion. Still not as bad as Samsung's FPS placement, though.

Really hoping they have something to show that hasn't been leaked. So far nothing super exciting. Would like to see something ground breaking.

Like what? A FPS in the screen? That's about to be obsolete. Other than distant charging, in drawing a blank as far as something groundbreaking. The design of the phone is completely different albeit the back is familiar. They are adding 3D sensing tech to the camera, wireless charging and all internals will be upgraded along with a better camera. Hardware wise, I'm stumped. Can you enlighten us?

That's about to be obsolete? Did Apple fire up the reality distortion generator a bit early this year? Or have the iFans suffered so much brain damage over the years that they just make BS up for Apple who do not even need the reality distortion anymore?

"Or have the iFans suffered so much brain damage over the years that they just make BS up for Apple who do not even need the reality distortion anymore?" And Android users wonder why people think the platform is for nerd-jocks. Look no further than your own reality distorted perspective. Like it or not, if Apple does find a way to make such a sensor better (or even a sidegrade) to the FPS, fingerprint scanners will become back burner tech for many OEMs. Obselete isn't the word I'd use for it necessarily, but FRS will take hold of the market. The real question here is if Apple actually had the tech perfected enough to use singularly.

On the topic of a FPS I am concerned about the facial recognition tech working for a person that wears glasses. Will it work when I take them off? Do I have to take them off to unlock my phone? So if the rumor of them removing the FPS is true this could be a problem for those of us that wear glasses. Wireless charging is hardly ground breaking Samsung has had it for years. As for what ground breaking feature that would be up to them but there is still room for this. Samsung is working on bendable displays, Apple is working on a finger print scanner in the screen as you said. More medical uses even... lots of possibilities, I have had many Apple phones (even an iphone 7 plus). Hate to say it they haven't done anything ground breaking since Steve Jobs passed away. BTW this doesn't have to be hardware wise...

Maybe they will let you have multiple facial models, one with glasses and one without. Just like multiple fingerprints.

33. thxultra

I can see this. Would hope they would allow a few because I have multiple pairs of glasses :) This is something that will keep me from preordering because I will want to see how it works especially if the rumor is true they are removing the FPS. I don't use the iris scanner on the S8 because of the glasses issue (I get this is different tech).
