If you’re finding it difficult to cope with all the hype and anticipation in the run up to the release of the tenth-anniversary iPhone…well, you’re certainly not the only one! For millions, the iPhone 8 represents the only smartphone launch of any real significance this year – including those at Apple banking on a spectacular success story.
In the meantime, we really only have the ever-faithful rumor mill to help give us an idea as to what to expect. But while some are happy to share their own (sometimes) educated opinions and predictions on what’s to come, others take things to sever all significant steps further.
This time around, a new video from YouTube channel ConceptsiPhone has brought to life what its creator believes could be the iPhone 8 we’ve all been dreaming about…and then some. Along with a completely edgeless display, the devices for trading in the video has done entirely always with the top and bottom bezels, in order to create dynamic areas which could be used in a similar way to the MacBook Pro’s TouchBar.
Not that apple has given any indication that this will be the case, but still…it’s more than a little compelling to say the least!
In addition, the video gives the world a sneak preview as to just how third-party app developers and Apple itself would be able to make full use of an extended display. And to top it all off, the clip is presented in a way that quite impressively mimics a real Apple ad, just to give it all an extra note of authenticity.
For the time being, the only thing we know about the upcoming iPhone is that it will no doubt be released in September as usual and this time around is expected to manifest in three different versions. As it stands, analysts remain divided as to whether the iPhone 8 will be the most incredible success story in the firm’s history to date, or little more than a big letdown.
It could all come down to how and to what extent Apple differentiates the new-generation iPhone from the seven prior generations…assuming there will be any major differences to speak of.
