The Apple loop has been decorated with a new iPhone leak. A report suggested that the next iPhone is expected to arrive with iPhone X series, which is also dubbed as the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8.  Speculations suggested that it could be the first iPhone with no physical home button and will be featured with all-glass edge-to-edge display with a virtual home button.

Apple is known to update its signature devices every year and backtracking the footsteps next year the company is to launch the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. However, rumours and leaks suggest that the Cupertino giant will launch iPhone 8 on its 10th anniversary.

An unnamed source reported Digitimes that Samsung is the supplier of OLED display which is leaked to ship a 5.8-inch display. Hence, it is expected that next year Apple will launch iPhone in three display size variants – 4.7-inch, 5.5-inch and 5.8-inch.

While, Extreme tech reported that Samsung Electro-Mechanics, BH and Interflex are supplying OLED components and Samsung Display will use them to manufacture panels used in the forthcoming iPhone. The report also suggested that the fingerprint sensor and home button of iPhone 8 will be embedded in the display itself.

Citing a post published on The Sun, the Cupertino giant is importing stockpiling components to manufacture high-quality display. And this makes us believe that the Apple iPhone 8 will be featured with an OLED curved display. OLED pixels are self-illuminating. The report also touted that the iPhone 8 will also support wireless charging, and its camera will be capable of snapping ultra-HD photos.

A reliable Japanese Publication Macotakara, which claims to boast connections in the Asia supply chain, also said that there is a high probability of getting an iPhone in red colour. However, the publications’ supply source calls the new iPhones as ‘iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus’, not the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which is earlier confirmed that the next iPhones will be iPhone 8 models, not iPhone 7s.
