The iPhone 8 Could Boast A Near-Borderless Display, ‘Leaks’ Suggest

Apple’s much-hyped “iPhone 8” will boast a near-borderless display if supposedly leaked drawings are to be believed.


The new schematics haven’t been verified, but were shared by KK – a Weibo leaker with an impressive record, according to MacRumours.


Despite being nearly identical to the iPhone 7 in length and height, the 10th anniversary iPhone will feature a larger screen – spanning 14.65 cm – thanks to slimmed down bezels measuring just 4 mm, the drawings claim.



The drawings also show a narrow speaker at the top of the screen, alongside what appears to be a camera and a cluster of sensors. It’s not clear where the Home button would sit.



The drawings emerged just days after a different set of designs showing a larger next generation iPhone surfaced on Weibo.


Size aside, it seems likely that next flagship iPhone will have a stunning screen. Nikkei Asian Review reported earlier this month that Apple had ordered 70m curved OLED displays from Samsung. The screens, which are expensive to produce, are revered for their vivid colour reproduction and impressive colour contrast.


We’ll have to wait a little longer before we find out whether the latest “leak” is legitimate, but as more rumours emerge, we should at least get a better sense of what Apple is aiming for.
