Apple iPhone 8 is back again the center of the limelight with the smartphone reportedly due in October this year, continuing to be the center of focus in the rumor mills. Earlier reports indicate there will be certain changes in design for the iPhone 8 since Apple will be celebrating their tenth year of anniversary of manufacturing their iconic 'iPhones'.

However, the story continues where Apple is reportedly planning to scrap its current plans to make way for curved OLED display that will, in turn, be unique to Apple, contrary to earlier claims that would match displays currently implemented in Samsung's flagship smartphones.

An in-depth write-up from Forbes reveals that the following plan will be the most radical part of an iPhone's design yet. Japanese publication Nikkei came out with a claim that Apple will certainly add a slight curve for the iPhone 8 which in turn would not resemble the Edge displays from Samsung in any way.

Apple's iPhone 8 is expected to come out with a rumored 5.8-inch screen that reportedly will have an OLED panel instead of current LCD panels. The following move will also likely result in better battery stability of the phones however the same is undetermined for Apple iPhones at least.

Meanwhile, popular and historically accurate Apple tabloid MacRumours feels that the slightly curved edges would add a new feel to the iPhone that'll reportedly make it sleeker but also claimed that the display wouldn't be offering additional features like what Samsung does with their phones.

That said, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple are unlikely to opt for a fully-curved display with 3D glass this year because of the challenges it can possess especially in the rigidity of the phone. Other details from the website also reported that Apple has been testing a lot of prototype devices which they claim, comes from within Apple's supply chain.
