The launch of iPhone 8 may surprise many as Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is reportedly testing the device with a 5-inch and 5.8-inch screen. According to few analysts of Barclays Research, who cited Apple’s supply claim as the source of information, iPhone 8 will have a large screen, but the bezel-free design will help Apple to keep the overall size of iPhone same as the current 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models. The team of analysts who spilled the beans were on a trip to Asia.

Larger and Bezel-less – iPhone 8 design didn’t sound 100% locked down but we believe the move is to a bezel-less design with screen sizes getting larger and curved edges in the original envelope. The iPhone 8 moves to 5″ (from 4.7″) and the Plus moves to 5.8″ (from 5.5″), said the team.

Apple would be celebrating the 10th anniversary of iPhone in 2017. Rumours are ablaze that Tim Cook and Team are leaving no stones unturned to make iPhone 8 the best smartphone the industry has seen till date. Apple will reportedly use OLED display technology in 5.8-inch iPhone 8 to make it sharper, brighter and energy efficient. This will also help the company to improve the battery life of iPhone, which has always been a bit of a disappointment for many. Besides Samsung and LG, the company is expected to use OLED display from Foxconn owned Sharp.

Apparently, the display size will not be the only major change in iPhone 8. Citing KGI Security analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the research note obtained by MacRumors states that iPhone 8 would sport bigger curved OLED display and glass casing as well.

However, Apple is expected to keep some of the premium features restricted only to 5.8-inch iPhone 8. The possibility of Apple introducing three models of iPhone 8 can not be ruled out, where 4.7-inch and 5-inch may have only LED display.

iPhone 8: No More Home Button

The rumour of Apple ditching iconic home button has been making the rounds on the internet for quite some time now. While Apple retained the home button in iPhone 7, the possibility of ditching the home button in iPhone 8 is high considering that Apple is trying to achieve the bezel-free design. Some of the analysts believe Apple may not let go the home button altogether, instead would move it to on-screen. However, analysts at Barclays don’t think that Apple would replace the home button with an on-screen solution.

While it may be too early to know how exactly the market will react, but considering the growing market share of Phablet devices, the 5.8-inch iPhone could make arch rivals run for its money. After Galaxy Note 7 debacle, Samsung is also working hard to win the lost trust of consumers. It is working to regain a stable ground by riding on the backs of Galaxy 8 and Galaxy 8 Edge, rumoured to be launched sometime next year.
