Even before the iPhone 7 goes out, some specialists in the sector were already giving first indiscretions on the next iPhone. Apple, unlike its usual, could directly switch from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8, without going through a model of iPhone 7S. And according to them, it should be much more innovative than the one we have just discovered.


According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple would like to mark the coup in 2017 for the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone. Ming-Chi Kuo, a highly-respected KGI Securities analyst, has spoken several times about the upcoming iPhone. According to him, the brand with the Apple would endow its new apparatus with a slightly curved AMOLED screen and a glass finish with metal edges. The popularity of black jet color would have convinced the firm to give up aluminum to turn to glass.


Apple would also benefit to release an iPhone with a larger size, 5.8 inches, reducing the edges. The iPhone 7S or iPhone 8 would be equipped with new biometric sensors like a system of recognition of the face or the iris. Finally, users could finally benefit from a wireless recharge.


The rumor of a glass shell has been clarified with the statements of the CEO of Catcher Technology, maker of the iPhone chassis and main supplier of Apple. According to him, the American giant would actually work on a glass finish that would borrow from the design of the iPhone 4S. But with a major evolution: the shell would be made in one piece and would thus wrap the entire iPhone 7S or iPhone 8.


Finally, according to information from the Wall Street Journal, the iPhone expected for 2017 could be equipped with an OLED screen without borders and a built-in fingerprint sensor (which would remove the home button).
