Apple’s iPhone 8 – Coming in 2017

2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple has something major planned to celebrate the occasion. We’ve got several months to go until the launch of the iPhone 8, but because of Apple’s ambitious plans for the device, there are already an abundance of rumors hinting at the impressive features coming in the 2017 iPhone.

Apple is rumored to be testing more than 10 prototype iPhone models, so it’s not entirely clear what we’re going to see, and because there are so many test devices in play, rumors are also conflicting and murky at this time.

Rumors suggest the iPhone 8 will feature a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead, most rumors suggest Touch ID may be built directly into the display, meaning there will be no Home button, but Apple is said to be having trouble implementing Touch ID under the display.

An alleged leaked design schematic has suggested that instead of placing the Touch ID fingerprint sensor under the glass, it could be located at the back of the iPhone, but it’s not yet clear if this schematic is indicative of the final design of the OLED iPhone as multiple prototypes are being tested.

With an edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 8 may be similar in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone, but with a display the size of the 5.5-inch iPhone. Rumors suggest it will feature a 5.8-inch display with 5.15 inches of usable area, with the rest dedicated to virtual buttons that will replace the existing Home button.

The display itself is said to be flexible plastic OLED rather than an LCD, allowing Apple to introduce a thinner device that consumes less power and offers a better display with higher contrast ratio and more true to life colors. It may also feature edges that are curved on both sides like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, but rumors are unclear on this point, and it’s looking more like it will have the same slightly curved 2.5D display that’s similar to the display used in the iPhone 7 because Apple suppliers still have difficultyproducing more curved displays.

As for the body, rumors suggest Apple is finally going to move away from the aluminum used in the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, and SE, instead re-adopting a glass body that’s similar to the body that was used in the iPhone 4. At least one iPhone model coming in 2017 will use a glass body, according to Apple supplier Catcher Technology, and according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the glass will be built around a polished stainless steel frame that’s similar in design to the Apple Watch.

iPhone 8 concept based on alleged leaked design renderings
Like the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 is expected to be water resistant, but it may have an improved IP68 water resistance rating. It will continue to be able to hold up to rain, splashes, and brief submersion in water. One rumor suggested the iPhone 8 could adopt a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, but later information suggests Apple will stick with the Lightning port in 2017.

Inside, the iPhone 8 is expected to have a 10-nanometer A11 chip that will be both faster and more efficient, plus rumors suggest it could also include features like wireless charging and biometric additions like iris, facial, or gesture recognition. In higher-end models with a dual-lens camera, both lenses are expected to feature optical image stabilization.

The iPhone 8’s front-facing camera may include 3D sensing capabilities that use technology by PrimeSense, allowing it to find the location and depth of objects in front of it, perhaps enabling facial and iris recognition. Rumors suggest Apple is exploring both a vertical rear camera for improved pictures and a dual-camera setup for the front-facing FaceTime camera.

Apple is said to be planning to position the OLED iPhone 8 as a ~5-inch “premium” model that will be sold alongside standard 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone models with traditional LCD screens.

All three models may include faster A11 processors, glass bodies and wireless charging (though rumors disagree on this point), but it is unclear if the two LCD models will feature the same edge-to-edge display rumored for the higher-end device and what differentiating features will be included. Rumors suggest the OLED iPhone is going to be pricy, with multiple rumors referring to it as “premium” and one rumor suggesting it could sell for upwards of $1,000, which is a good deal more expensive than previous iPhones. Other rumors don’t quite agree, though, so it could be closer in price to the iPhone 7 Plus.

Given the radical design changes Apple plans to introduce in the OLED iPhone, rumors have been suggesting there will be serious supply constraints. Apple may introduce the ~5-inch OLED iPhone at a September event alongside the standard 4.7 and 5.5-inch devices, but there’s a chance it won’t be released until one or two months after its introduction. Alternatively, it may be available in small numbers, with the majority of people unable to get their hands on it until the first quarter of 2018.

Part Leaks and Schematics

Early iPhone 8 design schematics started surfacing in April, but the leaks haven’t exactly cleared up questions about what we can expect from the device. We’re seeing at least two distinct designs depicted in current leaked schematics and renderings, because Apple is said to be testing multiple iPhone 8 prototypes. With early leaks, it’s also often difficult to tell what’s accurate, so take all of the below information with a grain of salt until part leaks and other more reliable information starts to surface.

The device in the first rendering, which appears to be from the Engineering Verification Testing stage of iPhone development, features an almost edge-to-edge display with slim bezels at the top and the bottom, along with a vertical dual camera and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor located at the back of the device. The rendering also suggests the device in the rendering is 8.6mm thick, a good deal thicker than the 7.1mm iPhone 7.

A vertical dual camera and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the iPhone 8’s casing are rumors that we’ve only heard once before, and Apple was rumored to be testing as many as 12 iPhone 8 prototypes, so it’s possible this is not representative of the final design of the device. Most rumors suggest Apple is planning to put the Touch ID fingerprint sensor under the display of the device, but there have also been hints that Apple is struggling with that particular design, so it’s also possible Apple was forced to relocate the Touch ID sensor to the rear of the iPhone 8.

A second iPhone 8 design schematic features another potential iPhone prototype, which is similar in design to the first leak. The schematic pictures an iPhone rear shell that features a vertical dual camera, an aluminum chassis that is remarkably similar to the chassis of the iPhone 7, and a circular cutout that could potentially be for a Touch ID fingerprint sensor or a contact-based wireless charging module.

It measures in at 149.5mm tall and 72.5mm wide, slightly larger than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, which measures in at 138.3mm by 67.1mm. Apple’s work on an aluminum iPhone 8 prototype was first outlined by Bloomberg.

A render of a full rear shell based on the design leaks gives a better idea of what the aluminum iPhone prototype might look like should Apple decide to make this the final version of the iPhone 8. It depicts a dual vertical rear camera and a cutout, perhaps for a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

A third design rendering from Weibo leaker KK surfaced just a day after the first design schematic appeared, pointing towards a different design that’s more in line with some of the rumors we’ve heard so far.

The leaked renderings feature a device that measures 137.54mm tall by 67.54mm wide, similar in size to the iPhone 7. Thickness is not shown, but there’s a nearly edge-to-edge display that measures 5.767 inches on the diagonal. A 4mm bezel is pictured around the display, with half of that being the 2.5D curved glass at the edges. All of this is in line with rumors suggesting an iPhone 7-sized device with an iPhone 7 Plus-sized display.

A narrow earpiece is depicted on the front of the device alongside cameras and sensors that appear to be embedded in the display area. There is no Home button and no visible Touch ID sensor.

An image of what’s said to be an iPhone 8 CNC dummy model sourced from Foxconn surfaced in late April, and it is similar in design to the KK leak. It features front and rear panels made from slightly curved 2.5D glass, held together with a stainless steel frame. The steel edges will reportedly be finished a polished “Space Black” color.

It appears to be thicker than existing iPhone models, but it features an edge-to-edge screen, presumably with Touch ID built in, as there is no home button. At the rear of the device, there’s a vertical dual-lens camera with no other markings. There is no rear Touch ID sensor nor an Apple logo.

At the sides, there are volume buttons and a mute switch on the left, with an elongated power button and a SIM tray on the right.

The same leaker has also shared schematics “based on blueprints” that allegedly give a look at the sensors located under the display and inside the device. At the top of the device, there’s an embedded camera, flash, and ambient light sensors.

None of these images can be verified, nor were they shared by someone with a known track record for accurate leaks, so this may or may not be an actual iPhone 8 dummy unit.

A second alleged rear shell schematic, which may or may not be legitimate, depicts a vertical dual-lens rear camera with an LED flash in the middle, and it includes a large circular area, perhaps for some kind of wireless charging functionality. No rear Touch ID button is pictured.

An iPhone case said to be for the iPhone 8 has leaked, showing off a design that’s similar to many of the renderings. It features a cutout for a vertical dual-lens rear camera and because it has no cutout for Touch ID or other features, it suggests it is for a device with no rear-facing Touch ID button.

It continues to have pill-shaped volume buttons, but there is a longer power button located on the left, something we’ve also seen in renderings and other desk leaks.

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: How do they compare?

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs S8 Plus vs LG G6: What's the difference?

LG’s new flagship smartphone, the LG G6 was announced at Mobile World Congress at the beginning of March, while Samsung waited until its separate Unpacked event at the end of March to announce its 2017 devices.

Despite LG going for a more innovative route in 2016 with its modular device, ultimately Samsung was the company with the more appealing devices. Is it the same story in 2017 though?

Here is how the now available Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus compare to the LG G6.

  • Premium metal and glass designs on all three
  • All waterproof with IP68 rating
  • All three about big screen, small body

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus both feature an all-screen front with very slim bezels, no physical home button and curved displays. The metal and glass sandwich remains intact with IP68 waterproofing, delivering a very premium build and stunning design that although similar to previous Galaxy S devices, push a few more boundaries.

The LG G6 ditches the modular design that arrived with 2016’s G5. Instead, its new flagship follows in Samsung’s footsteps with a metal core and glass front and rear, bringing IP68 waterproofing to the party. It has a lovely big screen but with a similar sized-body to the G5, measuring 148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9mm and weighing 163g, meaning it is all about its screen like the Samsung devices.

The Galaxy S8 measures 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm and weighs 155g, while the S8 Plus measures 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm and hits the scales at 173g. This means the S8 and G6 are almost identical in physical size, with the S8+ being that little bit taller and slightly wider.

The LG G6 retains its 3.5mm headphone jack, which Samsung also does and it keeps its rear-mounted fingerprint sensor too, another thing Samsung has done, though this is a new position for Samsung. The S8 and S8 Plus see the fingerprint sensor on the right of the camera lens, while LG’s is positioned in the centre below the camera. The S8 and S8 Plus also have iris scanning however, which the G6 does not.

  • S8 has 5.8-inch display, S8+ has 6.2-inch, both curved and Mobile HDR Premium
  • Quad HD+ resolution on S8 and S8+, AMOLED
  • G6 has 5.7-inch Quad HD+ LCD display with HDR

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch display, while the S8 Plus offers a 6.2-inch screen. Both have an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and a resolution of 2960 x 1440, which delivers a pixel density of 570ppi and 529ppi respectively.

They are also both AMOLED, both Infinity Displays, which translates to dual-edged curved screens and they both have Mobile HDR Premium on board, certified by the Ultra HD Alliance.

The LG G6 on the other hand, has a 5.7-inch LCD display. It offers a 2880 x 1440 Quad HD+ resolution for a pixel density of 564ppi, along with an ultra wide aspect ratio of 18:9 and HDR with support for Dolby Vision and HDR 10.

The Samsung devices therefore both have larger screens than the LG G6, though only just when it comes to the S8. The Galaxy S8 is the sharpest of these three handsets on paper however, while the S8 Plus is the softest.

  • Dual-rear camera on G6
  • S8 and S8+ have autofocus on front camera
  • G6 has 5MP front camera, S8 and S8+ have 8MP

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 12-megapixel single lens rear Duo Pixel camera with a f/1.7 aperture like the S7, which means the results are likely to be as fantastic as they were with last year’s device. There is OIS and PDAF on board and Samsung has introduced multi-frame image processing, which means the camera takes three shots and combines the information for a more detailed final image.

In terms of the front camera, the S8 and S8+ both have an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with autofocus and there is an iris scanner on board too, as we mentioned. The rear camera on the S8 and S8+ also support a feature called Bixby Visual which allows you to scan things and receive information on them, as well as shopping options.

LG retained the dual-camera setup that worked so well on the G5, but increased the resolution resulting in two 13-megapixel sensors, one of which has a 125-degree wide angle lens. The front facing camera is 5-megapixel and although there is no iris scanner on board, it too has a wide-angle lens like the rear, only slightly narrower at 100-degrees.

  • S8+ has largest battery capacity, all three have USB Type-C
  • G6 has Qualcomm SD821 chip, S8 and S8+ have SD835 or Exynos 8895
  • All have microSD and 4GB RAM

The Samsung Galaxy S8 will come with either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip or the Exynos 8895 chipset, depending on region, as it did with the S7. There is 4GB of RAM on all models, along with 64GB internal storage and microSD support for storage expansion.

The LG G6 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip, which we presume was to meet the earlier announcement. It has 4GB of RAM and a choice of 32GB or 64GB of storage, both of which have with microSD. The G6 offers a Quad DAC for improved audio, though it will only be available in certain countries.

The G6 has USB Type-C, which the Samsung S8 and S8+ also have and the G6 also has wireless charging, on US models, which is also a feature on the S8 and S8+ but worldwide. Samsung’s S8 arrives with a 3000mAh battery, the S8 Plus with a 3500mAh battery and LG’s G6 has a 3300mAh battery.

  • All three Android Nougat with manufacturer specific skins
  • S8 and S8+ have Bixby
  • G6 offers Google Assistant

The LG G6 launches on Android Nougat with the company’s UX 6.0 software skin over the top, while the Samsung S8 and S8+ also launch on Android Nougat but with Samsung’s TouchWiz bloatware.

The LG G6 and Samsung devices will offer their own unique features and the user interface will be different but all will deliver good experiences. The Galaxy S8 has its own personal assistant Bixby on board, along with Google Assistant, while the LG G6 will also come with Google Assistant support.

The Samsung S8 and S8+ are also compatible with a new docking station called Samsung DeX, which will allow users to connect them to a monitor for a desktop view of Android. Once connected, users will be able to see apps, along with take calls and view messages.

  • LG G6 likely to be cheaper
  • S8 costs £689, S8+ costs £779

The Samsung Galaxy S8 launches with a price tag of £689 and the S8+ with a price tag of £779.

LG has yet to confirm the price of the G6 but as the G5 went on sale for around £500, it is likely the G6 will be a little cheaper than Samsung’s devices.

LG’s G6 has a much more premium build than the company’s previous generations, along with a larger display and higher resolution camera, as well as the software enhancements.

The Samsung S8 and S8+ offer the same though, a beautiful premium design that is different to its predecessors, larger display, camera improvements, software enhancements and hardware improvements.

The G6 is likely to be cheaper than the S8 and definitely the S8+, but which device is right for you will come down to budget, design preference and which interface and features appeal to you most. Ultimately, all three of these handsets have lovely premium designs, big screens and powerful hardware.
