Design of the smartphone

Apple is heavily-speculated to make its iPhone 8 smartphone extra-special this year. The design of the device will play a key role in establishing the desired impression that Apple wants to place upon its fans. There are numerous sources close to the matter that suggest that the Cupertino-based giant is planning on integrating a glass built especially on the rear panel of the smartphone. Since the device is also expected to pack a dual rear setup – the rear panel will also look exponentially different. If reports are believed to be true, then the dual rear camera setup will be placed horizontally onto the smartphone.

The former comes packed with a feature that suggests that the upcoming device might sport biometric technology. This rumor falls in line with other prevailing rumors that suggested that the smartphone will come equipped with a rear-facing 3D face scanner. This is apparently also one of the many reasons as to why Apple might end up delaying the launch of its flagship smartphone by two to three months. The device also seems to pack a bezel-less design, as per many of the press renders and concept-based art work.
