iPhone 8: Dual cameras planned for top–end models

iPhone 8 concept

Apple’s iPhone 8 will come in three variants, reports suggest, with the two, higher-end models set to feature a dual lens camera.

Analyst Ming Chi Kuo, known for getting his Apple predictions spot on thanks to close connections within the company’s supply chain, claims that the cheapest, entry-level iPhone 8 will come in at 4.7 inches and will be equipped with a single camera.

This model and a pricier 5.5–inch version will come with LCD screens, while a third, 'top-of-the-range' edition will feature the latest OLED display tech, he claims.

Kuo did not specify how big this device would be, but has in the past intimated that Apple is working on a 5.8–inch handset with a curved screen.

Kuo’s latest insights tally with previous reports that Apple will launch three editions of the iPhone 8. However, those stories suggest that the third model will be a smaller, 5–inch handset.

Apple is widely expected to wholly redesign the iPhone in 2017, to celebrate the bestselling smartphone’s tenth anniversary.

As well as new cameras and screen sizes, the handsets could also see the standard physical home button replaced with a 'virtual' button that's embedded within the screen.

The iPhone 8 is not expected to launch until late next year.
