TrendForce recently waded in on the rumours, publishing a report about the iPhone 8's apparent specs as well as how many units it expects Apple to sell in 2017.

TrendForce also says that the phone will have 3 GB RAM, the same as the iPhone 7 Plus, and will be available in two storage sizes: 64 GB and 256 GB. Although the phone is still months away from launch there are number of new rumors floating about that indicate Apple is making serious changes to its iPhone line-up, starting with the iPhone 8.

A new iphone 8 concept video even depicts such a new function bar.

It would be interesting to see whether reception for the iPhone 8, once it comes out, will be warmer than the previous flagship phone.

So for those looking for a less expensive (though it won't be cheap) iPhone might be served by the 4.7in display model, with 64GB of storage.

The iPhone 8 will be the first to have an AMOLED display, aside from other high-end features. Many are happy because iPhone's storage capacity has always been a big problem for the users. Apple charges Rs 10,000 extra as it steps up the storage space in its iPhone.

The display WILL NOT be curved, the report added, but will feature 2.5D glass on the front just like current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. Perhaps a curve or foldable screen could be in the works for the successor to the iPhone 8? Reports suggest the iPhone maker will ditch the aluminum back cover for a return to the "glass sandwich" design. Although there has been no confirmation about the new features of the iPhone 8, there have been several rumors anticipating what these might be. So certainly not every Apple patent turns into a commercial product or feature, but at least iPhone rumors that stem from patent filings feel as though they have some legitimate basis. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), the upcoming smartphone is also going to get an upgraded front-facing camera.
