The iPhone is Apple's most important product, representing about two-thirds of sales.

When the iPhone 8 finally arrives in September, there's a good chance it's going to look a lot like the Galaxy S8 and Samsung will have stolen much of Apple's thunder.

The new screen shape reinforces the expectation that the iPhone 8 will have a larger 5.8-inch OLED that will be almost edge-to-edge in design - or, in other words, a screen about the size of the iPhone 7 Plus in a phone about the size of the iPhone 7.

The company still plans to go ahead with its original arrangements to start making the iPhone SE in a factory belonging to Taiwanese contract manufacturer Wistron by June, an industry source told Nikkei.

It is expected to also establish brand new facilities for component manufacturing at a second location later. Apple is also aiming to reduce the overall size of the handset by integrating the home button into the screen itself via software in a similar manner to Samsung's S8, the people said. The people asked not to be identified discussing Apple's private testing and design plans.

Reputable Apple leaker Sonny Dickson just tweeted a picture of what look to be design schematics for the upcoming iPhone. Want a zero-bezel display with a curved front? The iPhone 8 is expected to launch this year, but with two more new iPhones devices are quietly surprising.

When it comes to premium smartphones, we're accustomed to Apple's design leading the way and Samsung following.

As the Indian ecosystem is still not developed enough to provide high-precision components, the Centre "must first let Apple and other global technology companies start somewhere", Kharge said.

As iFanr reports, some of these technical renderings shared by the publication clearly point out that an iPhone model with "Full Vision Display" could be one of the ten prototypes that are now being tested by Apple. That's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus combined.

Apple is said to be facing issues with placement of Touch ID in iPhone 8, according to reports.

For the front-camera, Apple is testing dual-lenses, one of the people said. Waiting one year for Apple to work out the bugs in a new generation of device really wouldn't be a bad idea.
