To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone line, Apple is planning to pay homage to the original device with the “iPhone 8” design. That’s according to a new report from Korean news outlet ETNews.
A 'water drop' design
The site says that the handset will feature a ‘water drop design’ like the original iPhone. The rear of the phone, apparently made of glass, will be designed with a curved emphasis. Here’s more from the report:
“Apple’s next iPhone will have a rear case made of glass,” an industry official said. “This glass case is a curved wall surrounded by four sides.”
The glass on the rear could feature a more gentle curve compared to the current iPhone models and their anodized aluminum backs.
According to the site, the OLED display will be relatively flat and not substantially curved as previously rumored.
