The analysts assume that the Cupertino giant might have two new smartphones lined up for next year, both of which will feature curved, borderless designs.
Analysts from Barclays Research reported that Apple Inc. is planning to adopt the all-glass design and trench the traditional bezel design for its upcoming 5-inch and 5.8-inch iPhone units. The company believes that it will make them as small as its current 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch offerings.
However, no official or trusted sources has confirmed the design for the iPhone 8, but the analysts believe that it could feature a bezel-less look with curved edges and a larger display compared with the original design. The new iPhone could move from 4.7 inches to 5 inches and its Plus version could move from 5.5 inches to 5.8 inches.
