Concept iPhone 8 with display “edge to edge” shows future of Apple’s smartphone
In a year Apple will introduce a brand new iPhone 8 OLED display and new form factor. And while designers only have to create concepts based on various rumors and speculation about what it will be for the camera. One of such concepts differs display panel “edge to edge”, making the device much more compact than the current iPhone.
The iPhone 8 is integrated into the screen touch the Home key, and the OLED display is completely devoid of side frames. While the envelope is made of ceramic – one of the hardest materials in the world. Lightweight, sleek and extremely durable material harder than stainless steel is more than four times, and its glossy pearl surface is scratch resistant and does not tarnish. The body of the iPhone is almost impossible to scratch, says the author of the concept.
On the technical side of the iPhone 8, the artist chose to keep silent, limiting the design of the smartphone. The concept looks pretty interesting, but, of course, does not claim to authenticity. And Jonathan Ive certainly has its own idea of the appearance of the group.
In any case, the device looks more modern iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Although the question of the ergonomics of such a design is still open: smartphones with edge-to-edge display is the sin of false positives and often less practical to use.
