But no curved screen included, say Chinese tech watchers.

The new iPhone 8 will be available in 64GB and 256GB options, with a hefty 3GB of Ram to keep the device ticking.

That’s the word from Chinese analysts Trendforce, via contacts close to Apple’s Asian supply chain.

The current top–end iPhone 7 Plus comes in 128GB and 256GB variants.

The drop to 64GB suggests Apple wants to make at least one version of the iPhone 8 more affordable.

Reports earlier this month suggested the device could cost more than £1,000 SIM–free.

Apple’s planned iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will retain their existing storage options, including a large 256GB model.

Trendforce also claims that Apple will not be using a curved display in the iPhone 8, due to low yield rates and issues during drop tests.

Instead, it’ll offer a standard flat screen, something which is bound to disappoint those keen on a cutting-edge new take on Apple’s bestselling product.

Other reports this week have suggested Apple is priming a new 3D front–facing camera for the iPhone 8, with iris recognition technology.
