A new report from KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo indicates about the upcoming iPhone 8 physical size same as the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. It also mentioned that it expected to pack with a much bigger battery comparable to 2700mAh battery of iPhone 7.
According to the reports, iPhone 8 Features a 5-inch or smaller display and Ming-Chi Kuo also mentions that the dimensions will be similar to 4.7-inch iPhone 7. However, by taking the considerations that coupled with previous rumours, iPhone 8 will have virtually no bezels.
It combined with a larger battery which used for iPhone 7 Plus alongside the lower power consumption of OLED displays. And we can expect it comes significantly with better battery life. As per the predictions of Ming-Chi there will be an increase of about 50% for the OLED iPhone.
The battery life of OLED iPhone could better than the 5.5-inch TFT-LCD model as panels and more energy efficient than the TFT-LCD counterparts. If these predictions are true, finally Apple will manage the major pain point of iPhones, i.e., battery life. It could come as the welcome improvement for the company.
Previous rumours claim that the industrial design of OLED iPhone indicate larger screen will dominate the front display with no space wasting on bezels and borders. In addition to this, some other sources reported that OLED panel would wrap around the sides of the iPhone 8 device.
Kuo mentions that the Apple may ditches the Home Button altogether. As per his reports, he claimed that the iPhone 8 would sport improved 3D Touch feature and the Touch ID Sensor which will embed underneath the display.
In his reports, Apple iPhone 8 features an optical fingerprint sensor and also the facial recognition sensor that will look redefine security in the future iPhone models. However, these won’t see in the iPhone 8 which will launch this year.
