Apple 10th Anniversary iPhone: Bezel-Less iPhone with AR Feature is Awesome and Expensive; More Details on iPad Pro 2 [VIDEO]
The iPhone is 10 years old this year and how do Apple celebrate its flagship birthday? Launching the most-revamped iPhone in a decade. Apple is reportedly gearing up for an all-screen premium iPhone with OLED display.
Informants, who are familiar with the matter, claim that Apple will launch three iPhone 8 models this year to mark its 10th anniversary. The premium, and the most expensive variant, is reportedly a bezel-less iPhone with a large display.
As far as the design is concerned, the internal source explained how the iPhone 8 home button will be integrated in the screen and the display will use OLED technology as rumored before.
Regardless of the convincing details, the source went on to say that the design is not fixed yet and Apple could consider another way.However, the previous leaks indicated that the next-gen iPhone will use a curved glass on the back and front with sleek steel frame, Extreme Tech reported.
As far as the price is concerned, the exclusive design might not cost cheap. Apple could distribute the premium iPhone as a limited edition or permanent product but based on the leaked specifications, the verdict that stated it could go above $1,000 might somewhat be true. At Apple 10th Anniversary event, fans will finally be able to physically compare the flagship with Samsung Galaxy S8 since the specs are almost identical, Gizmodo reported.
Apple going bezel-less is not a new story as the Cupertino giant is rumored to launch a 10.5-inch bezel-less iPad Pro 2 this year. The release of iPad Pro 2 could coincide with the new iPhone launching.
Once the tablet is out, people will find out how similar the design can be as it could be drawing inspiration from the handset. Additionally, Apple might increase the optics quality in iPhone 8 by bringing multiple lens for the front and rear cameras to deliver augmented reality experience.
Apple iPhone 8 is expected to be unveiled at Apple 10th anniversary event this Fall.
