This iPhone 8 concept brings all the rumors so far to life and it's an impressive sight
by Luis D. / Jan 18, 2017, 12:45 PM
Surrounded by rumors of a radical redesign and innovative technological additions, the next iPhone provokes any enthusiast's imagination. Switzerland's Handy Abovergleich came up with a concept that balances just the right amounts of crazy and plausible, leaving us hopeful that Apple can at least come close to something this impressive. Based on various rumors hinted at by analysts and supply chain sources, the work shows an all-screen iPhone covered by gently curved glass and built around a stainless steel frame.
Apple Pencil and fast wireless charging at a distance of up to 3 meters.
Mind you, though, this is just a concept, even if it's built on prominent rumors. While Apple does have the technology and expertise to pull off something like this, it has to be financially feasible first. If Apple can't deliver technology like this at the typical flagship smartphone price point (around $700), it will have to hold it in for a more appropriate time or release it as a premium model for enthusiastic, deep-pocketed buyers.
So, what do you think of the concept? Do you like what you see? Tell us in the comments below!

I have much, much, much better concept for iPhone, but Apple will never make it. Because it will affect their profit a lot. So, no go. BTW I ROTFL at the picture of iPhone with Apple Pencil. Not embedded in the phone is useless. And S-Pen is not only about jotting as the ignorant media and iboys think. So, no go, too.

Hardly a "wraparound" display, since this could have been achieved with a flat display panel plus 2.5D glass (which has been around for almost 5 years on smartphones) that flows into the rounded sides.

Looks like the artist took a Galaxy S7 Edge, and simply covered the top and bottom bezels with screen.

I have to Jump in Here and ask "did you seriously just write that" the S7 Edge took "TONS" of cues from the iPhone? Wow!!!! if that is not just plain inaccurate then I really don't know what is??? I will give you the Glass designed but that was done prior to the iPhone too by other oems Did it take the Amoled screen- flexible Screen- 2k resolution Sd card slot and on and on the list goes Please take a moment and think about that statement. You have to give credit where credit is due Samsung did a good job with the S7

Samsung actually traveled time, saw that iPhone 8 will have display like this, tried to get as close as possible to this design and as always, it couldn't match the always 'original' iPhone and ended up making the S7 Edge. Period.

I don't understand these trolls... isn't good that Apple is moving forward? There were many other companies that copied the "edge" concept off Samsung. We don't even know what Apple will do with it....
