If one is to patch all the rumored specifications for the next iPhone which is scheduled to be unveiled during its 10th year anniversary, one can pretty much have a visual detail of what iPhone 8 would look like. And just recently, the outer specification, the physical look of iPhone 8 may have finally been completed.

Front & Back Looks of iPhone 8

As reported by WCCFTech.com, iPhone 8 will pretty much have the same specifications as that of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. These two high-end smartphones is reportedly going to feature a curved screen, with very thin to almost no bezel from all sides. So it seems having a curved, bezel-less smartphone will be the norm moving forward.

There is one more thing people should expect on iPhone 8 as reported recently by Korean website ET News. By the way, ET News confirmed reports about iPhone 8 having a curved edge which is said to be gentler and more rounded compared to existing metal case edges. But the more revealing story is the iPhone 8 having a back casing made of glass.

"Apple's next iPhone will have a rear case made of glass," an industry official said. "This glass case is a curved wall surrounded by four sides."

In addition, iPhone 8 is the first iPhone to adopt organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the adoption of front 2.5D cover glass will leave iPhone 8 still having edges, though they will be curved thinly.

Curved, Flexible Display

The same report suggested that Apple may finally bring in a new design, a glass molding technology which they have been working for ten years now though development rapidly over years.

The said technology will not only show a curved display - it is also flexible display. Of course, this leaked information has yet to be confirmed in the coming months as Apple continuous to work on iPhone 8.
