Report: Apple to make iPhone 8 screen bigger than iPhone 7

iPhone 8's main innovation revealed

Being that these were both prototype devices, this iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus video didn't give us a chance to see either device powered on in order to compare appearance.

UI designers start to have fun with the iPhone 8 notch and bunny ears screen layout. The reason behind this delay has been said to be the issues regarding implementation of the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 8.

Now it's clear we don't have the official specs or confirmed design of the iPhone 8 yet, but we know enough to work out if it's worth waiting for - and just how different it's likely to be.

Apple's decision to ditch the home button which has been the key design marker of its iPhone range since it first launched in 2007 is perhaps the most obvious change with this year's flagship. The iPhone 8 looks smaller overall but it clearly has more usable screen real estate. Since the iPhone 8 will have an OLED display and the iPhone 7S Plus will have an LCD display we can safely assume that the iPhone 8 will offer a much more vibrant viewing experience. The upcoming smartphone could also feature a facial recognition sensor that will allow the users to unlock their smartphones just by looking at it. Interestingly, though, most rumours and mock-ups point to a vertically mounted array, with one lens above the other. For example, perhaps when we get a chance to do an iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus camera comparison we will find the iPhone 8 is best-suited for AR while the iPhone 7S Plus has its own strengths like portraits. In the past, Apple has reduced the size of battery and kept the same battery life, so expect the iPhone 8 to last for the same length of time - or better. For me, this is where the iPhone 8 surges ahead of the iPhone 7. "We are still awaiting Apple's final decision before shipping parts". A Business Insider report recently said that the device may not make it to the shelves this year, another report by DigiTimes claims that iPhone 8 production is on schedule and could hit stores in October. 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.
