  • Report Suggests iPhone 8 Will Feature a 'Water Drop' Design

Apple is ramping up its plans to pursue augmented reality, according to a new Bloomberg report, which provides some detail on how the company may incorporate the technology into the iPhone. A curved, almost edge-to-edge OLED display, reinforced glass design, and an improved, possibly 3D-sensing camera are all but confirmed for the iPhone 8. However, MacRumors pointed out that most reports about the next-generation iPhone are pointing to a 2.5D display design that has a similar curve as the one found on the current iPhone 7. Samsung used 3D glass to make their Galaxy "Edge" design.

Also, the discounts being offered are being seen as Apple's move to make additional revenue before the close of the financial year. The original iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS both had curved rear casings, made with either aluminium or plastic.

The Korean news site says the rounder corners are supposed to resemble those from the original iPhone.

While I'm not a fan of retro designs, many around the globe are.

While you could understand Apple trying to modernize the original iPhone design for their aniversary model, it's hard to image this simplistic iPhone at the moment as being a breakthrough design that many were hoping for.

In case you don't know, the iPhone SE, where SE stands for iPhone Special Edition was first unveiled on March 21, 2016, at Apple HQ in Cupertino.

Perhaps this is why some rumors are claiming multiple iPhone designs for 2017. That, too, could help the device to compete against the iPhone, for which Apple is also rumored to be planning a full-screen display along with an embedded home button, which is nevertheless expected to retain Apple's Touch ID fingerprint scanning system. BGR India has reached out to Apple for a comment and will update the story as we hear from them. Those using abusive language or behavior will result in being blacklisted on Disqus.
