Apple iPhone 8 to have stainless steel and glass design

The company is testing a revamped iPhone with an all-screen, curved glass front, according to Bloomberg.

The report says that Apple is testing a near bezel-less front panel, as we have seen reported since a year ago.

So far, the consensus seems to be that there will be a premium iPhone model with a bezel-less glass screen, a display that will be larger than the iPhone 7 Plus.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman with Min Jeong Lee have published a report in which they claim Apple "is planning its most extensive iPhone lineup to date". Apple is also aiming to reduce the overall size of the handset by integrating the home button into the screen itself via software in a similar manner to Samsung's S8, the people said. First of all, we can see that the front of the device is nearly completely taken by the display.

In terms of the high-end iPhone, Bloomberg says Apple has tested various designs.

In addition to a slight tweak in the screen's size, Apple is speculated to use an OLED display for the premium model. It won't be as curved as the Galaxy S8's display, but it will be curved to a certain degree that will apparently allow it to give off the illusion of a handset with a full screen.

Trump signs executive order on H-1B visa
President Trump's promises were well-received by the crowd, including workers who said they hope the order will boost production. In a statement, the White House said H-1B visas are supposed to bring the highest skilled and paid labour to the United States.

Sources familiar with the matter informed the publication that Apple has more or less finalized the iPhone 8's design. The first option would cause Apple even more problems as Touch ID is a core feature its phones which is used to unlock devices, log in to apps and cloud-based services, and authenticate Apple Pay transactions. This contradicts a schematic and render we recently reported on, which showed a Touch ID sensor embedded into the glass display.

While the iPhone 8 is rumored not to arrive as scheduled, rumors on its possible specs and features continue to surface online. The two phones are also said to be outfitted with the company's traditional liquid crystal display, and come in 4.7 and 5.5-inch screen sizes.

Bloomberg adds, however, that supply constraints may mean that the new-look iPhone could launch some months later than the other new models, although still hopefully before the end of the year. However, the dual camera is now said to be vertically placed instead of being horizontally placed as was seen on the iPhone 7 Plus.

Chinese buyers have shown little enthusiasm for electric cars due to concern about cost, reliability and limited range. The two models will be mated to either a seven-speed dual clutch transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission.
