'Final' iPhone 8 design leak depicts 4mm bezels, tips $1100 release price

It seems that there might be about 4mm bezel all around the 5.8" panel of the soapy-shaped iPhone 8, in order to keep the user from inadvertent edge presses. The cutout at the top middle of the panel will host the physical sensors and cameras that usually reside at the front, while the rest is an active OLED panel to show battery, network, and other info that's found at the very top segment of our screens. Notifications and switches will likely be moved in the bottom "function" area of the display, along with on-screen buttons of sorts...

Best render so far! Only the price tag is highly unjustified

Agreed. This is certainly a very well designed phone. Pricing is more than high though. I can only hope that Apple will allow picture in picture with the new iPhone.

That would be a change from the last three years.

Looks like Apple have been surpassed by Samsung, and now (if the renders are correct) will be replicating Samsung.. Let the war begin!

There might be nicer ways of writing it but grammatically speaking his sentence is correct. The only mistakes would be the use of "jacks" rather than the singular and "breezeless" meant as "bezel-less", both of which I can almost guarantee are auto-corrected mistakes.

LOL! Are you sure that they've removed the fingerprint scanner?

I just hate how these fanboys declare their favorite phone as if it is THE best for everyone, like what You_Dont_Say did. He could have just said "the iPhone 8 will be the best phone for me", I would have no problem with that.

Me too. They need to learn the significance of personal opinion and that they can't force their opinion upon others. Btw, are you facing some sort of glitch on this site due to which the likes on comments are disappearing or not showing properly? It started occuring to me since last week.

Just like the guy who replied to you, that "Flash" guy has serious fanboy problems, he considers his personal opinion as absolute truth, and forces it on people who has a different opinion from him. Yes I am experiencing it too, comments either have no likes or 1 like, nothing else.

Once again Apple has to keep it's proprietary lightning crap. Instead of going with a much better faster charging, and faster throughput USB-C ​port. Apple has to keep in control of it's lightning port so it can make more money off of third party lightning manufacturers as well. Apple doesn't make any money off of USB-C. Yet Apples laptops all use USB-C ports now, but Apple doesn't even include a dongle or cable to talk to it's own iPhones. You have to layout more money for that. When are people going to wake up and see the greed in this company.

The other thing is the iPhone 7s's are still going to have the low resolution displays​. Other than a newer A11 chip. It's basically a way for Apple to keep charging the same flagship pricing for a 4 year old design.

They can't get away with putting same low resolution panel inside the 8 because it would be even less sharper than the current 326 PPI panel on the smaller 7 due to pentile pixel structure. So I highly doubt the 8 will have anything lower than 1080p

OLED, especially lower res OLED, doesn't have to be penile. Samsung could produce an RGB 5.8" AMOLED at 720p. However, since the 7s Plus is 1080p, there is no way the 8 will be lower.

65. mikehunta727 unregistered

Yeah they don't have to use Pentile but the reason why they use Pentile over RGB still at the moment is because Pentile OLED displays last considerably longer than RGB OLED panels do, so they won't be using an RGB layout, which pretty much rules out a 720p OLED iPhone 8. Small i8 will have minimum 1080p and the big 8 1440p possibly, or some weird resolution like 1350p or something Plus seems like both models are gonna get bigger screens so I think Apple finally drops 720p

Why doesn't the competition create devices that make people switch to the competition? There is nothing wrong with Apple trying to succeed with their proprietary solution. But there is something wrong with the competition letting Apple get away with this. As soon as Apple's sales drop, Apple will change their way doing business.

There's is nothing wrong with the competition. Competition is the only reason we are seeing oled screen on iPhone 8. Otherwise apple would have sold that same design for next 10 years. But competition cannot change the psyche of people overnight. Apple is responding to the demand of the consumers. If iphone consumers don't care about better screen resolution on iPhone, why would apple give a s**t. Consumers are getting more conscious due to good products available from other manufacturers. But it will take time. But this leaked design is absolutely stunning. I hope it is true.
