The iPhone 7 has only been with us for a matter of weeks, but everyone now seems ready to move on to discussing what the iPhone 8 will look like when it gets an official announcement, likely in September of 2017.
Many believe that smartphones have innovated as far as possible with regards to their shape and looks, but designers, and indeed hardware makers, have already begun to show that’s not strictly accurate and the iPhone 8 is likely to be a prime example.
Whilst the candy bar design of a smartphone has been around for years now and hardly iterated upon beyond some changes in screen size as well as curved panels for the likes of the Galaxy S7 Edge, devices like the recently-announced Xiaomi Mi MIX and Sharp’s concept smartphone with its rounded-corner edgeless display, have proven that to not be the case.
Wall-to-wall glass screens and no physical buttons are exactly the kind of things that are on the drawing board for iPhone 8 rumors, and they’ve also given form to some new concept art, which makes the iPhone 8 look like something that would attract plenty of attention.
Created by Veniamin Geskin, the new concepts show an iPhone with almost no bezels, made possible by moving the Home button behind the screen in a way that we have to believe Apple has been planning given the move away from a physical Home button as part of the iPhone 7 design and existing rumors that suggest the same. The concept, which looks like an iPhone 7 but with no bezels of which to speak, has us all keen to see what Apple will do with things over the coming months for the tenth anniversary iPhone.
We expect Apple is already well into the process of getting the next iPhone ready for us all to drool over, but until then, this concept is the closest thing we have to seeing what we will be buying next September.
