Due to reports from analysts and credible tech websites, fans are already making up their minds to skip this year’s iPhone 7. Although Apple’s CEO tried to convince fanboys that this year’s announcement will be exciting, tech reports don’t add up to their words.
Adding to that, tech sites have received new rumors and leaks that would completely make someone an iPhone 8 fan. According to new information shared by John Gruber in his talk show podcast:
I think next year’s phone, the 2017 model, the one that will come out in September of 2017. What I have heard, now this is not really from the rumor mill but just scuttlebutt that I’ve heard, is that it will be an all-new form factor.
And there have been some rumors, I guess, but what I’m saying is that I’ve heard this independently and it is completely getting rid of the chin and forehead of the phone. The entire face will be the display. And the Touch ID sensor will be somehow embedded in the display. The front-facing camera will somehow be embedded in the display. The speaker, everything. All the sensors will somehow be behind the display.
What I don’t know, and I have no idea, is whether that means that they’re going to shrink the actual thing in your hand to fit the screen sizes we already have, or whether they’re going to grow the screens to fit the devices we’re already used to holding… I don’t know.
Although you may have come across similar reports from our previously articles, they were based on anonymous sources from the tech industry. According to BGR, Gruber has a good track record over the years. Moreover, some features like OLED display and dual camera are rumored to be neglected for the iPhone 7. We just have to wait for official announcements from Apple in September.
