Apple is testing as many as 10 prototypes of next year’s iPhone 8, including one model with a curved OLED screen.
That’s according to the Wall Street Journal, which says well–placed sources have given it the inside line on Apple’s plans.
Get up to speed with all the speculation surrounding the iPhone 8 with our rumours round-up.
The curved screen edition will come with a heftier price tag and is likely to be the only version of the new iPhone to feature OLED display tech. The other models are set to come with standard LCD smarts.
This latest report tallies with previous rumours emerging from the Asian supply chain.
It’s been mooted that Apple plans to release 4.7–inch, 5–inch and 5.5–inch variants of the iPhone 8.
The handset is not expected to feature a physical home button. Instead it will sit behind the display, which will cover the whole of the front facing part of the phone.
Apple is also set to include a new 3D dual lens camera and an all glass frame designed to support wireless charging tech.
