Apple to make iPhone 8 screen bigger than iPhone 7

The black iPhone 8 replica that was shown has the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S8.

While Android handsets have been utilising larger displays for many years now, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays are still relatively new for iPhone users.

Those leaks may be backed by a claim from KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo, who recently said that the "iPhone 8" would ship this September in three shades: black, silver, and gold. Apple is yet to reveal its 2017 iPhone, the iPhone 8, but when it does, the world is prepared for a massive upgrade.

According to Apple blogger John Gruber, this is not going to happen because the company has been planning giving up on the "S" designation entirely and could instead go for simpler names, like iPhone, iPhone Plus, and iPhone Pro (for the OLED model). The reason behind this delay has been said to be the issues regarding implementation of the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 8.

Verdict: iPhone 8 wins. Some critics say that the iPhone 8 is causing iPhone sales to drop because most of the potential iPhone buyers wish to just wait a few more weeks until the new smartphone is launched. We know that Apple is making a major push into the augmented reality space.

The size difference when comparing the iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus is also very eye-opening. Regardless of whether you are upgrading from a previous version of the iPhone or buying your first one, you will still need to make a considerable financial investment as Apple is known to put quite steep price tags on its iPhones.

Because it doesn't have any bezels, the iPhone 8 has a screen similar to that of the iPhone 7 Plus, despite being only slightly bigger than the normal iPhone 7. Expected to feature a bezel-less screen, wireless charging and no buttons, it will bring so many bits of technology we've been waiting for Apple to implement. Well, no iPhone is "cheap", but the upcoming model will cost much more than other models.
