The iPhone 8 might still be months away from launch, but it is already triggering a massive amount of interest from fans and analysts alike. Apple has been very silent about the details of the iPhone 8, but leaks and rumors continue to emerge about the upcoming flagship. While the Cupertino-based tech giant is yet to confirm if any of the rumors are accurate, leaks and speculations from reputable sources paint a picture of a formidable, revolutionary device that would, just like the very first iPhone back in 2007, change the world of mobile communications definitively.

Rumors about the iPhone 8’s specs have been emerging for some time now, with noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities stating that the 2017 flagship would carry a brand new all-glass design. A Trusted Reviews report pointed out that a Barclays analyst also stated that the upcoming device would feature wireless charging, which recent rumors state would have a revolutionary 15-foot range. An OLED display, a massive 5.8-inch screen, and A11 chip and a Snapdragon X16 LTE modem are also rumored for the device.

Among the speculated features and specs of the upcoming smartphone, the iPhone 8’s rumored all-glass body has attracted arguably the most attention from longtime iPhone users and analysts. A metal and glass iPhone design have already been utilized in the past with 2010’s iPhone 4 and 2011’s iPhone 4S. Unlike the aluminum frame of the iPhone 6 Plus, which was prone to bending, the iPhone 4 and 4S’s metal and glass frame were nigh-unbendable. However, the glass back of the devices also made them extremely prone to shattering, making the iPhone 4 and 4S quite fragile in their own right.
