Apple may drop the S from the iPhone

Many had hoped the iPhone 8 would use its 5.8-inch screen to fill with content

The vertically aligned dual camera sensor will allow the iPhone 8 to work best in a landscape mode which is ideal for AR applications. It is about the same size as the current iPhone 7, but it has a larger display with a bezel-less design. Sure, it was a good-looking handset, but it seemed to look nearly identical to the iPhone 6s before it - minus a headphone jack, of course. Maybe Apple will explain some of the differences when they officially announce the two devices but I bet we will have to wait for some reviewers to get their hands onto the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7S Plus and do a direct camera comparison in the real world.

The MacRumors iPhone 8 is silver and features a glass back - which would match up with the possibility of wireless charging functionality. The inclusion of a glass back should lend a more premium feel to the new handset, and you just can't beat an edge-to-edge screen. It gives the iPhone 8 even more screen space, and it's also a more ergonomic solution than putting a Home button on the back of the phone. One things for certain, though: the iPhone 8 won't be resurrecting the headphone jack. The company is also set to launch two new smartphones alongside the iPhone 8.

Luckily, Danny Winget has come out with a great video that pits the iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus.

The size difference when comparing the iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus is also very eye-opening. It's about time we got a buttonless display on an iPhone, but what's most exciting is the iPhone 8's wireless charging capability.

The question remains is if Apple makes the notch visible. Let's not forget the other great devices expected this fall including the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, LG V30, and the Nokia 8.

The screen of the iPhone 8 should also be better than the iPhone 7's.

The Apple iPhone 8 will probably have a bigger screen that the normal iPhone 7, but you could always get an iPhone 7 Plus if screen size is a factor for you. This is reportedly going to be made possible by ditching the Home button - and the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, too - and reducing the thickness of the bezel all around the display.

Rumours suggest Apple will release three phones in September, with the iPhone 7S costing as much as the previous handset.
