High-end iPhone 8 said to pack 5.8-inch screen, glass and aluminum body

DigiTimes, the source of today’s report, also said that Apple plans to release 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models. This again suggests that we’ll get some sort of regular iPhone 7s, an iPhone 7s Plus and then the high-end 5.8-inch iPhone 8. We’re still guessing on the names here, some speculation has said Apple may end up calling its premium device the iPhone X in celebration of 10 years since the original iPhone launched.

“The reinforced glass chassis’ stainless steel metal frame will be supplied by Foxconn Technology and US-based Jabil Circuit, while the aluminum-alloy chassis will be supplied by Catcher Technology,” DigiTimes said, again claiming the phone will cost more than $1,000. Don’t let that price tag scare you, though. As we said yesterday, a $1,000 iPhone isn’t terribly abnormal.

iPhone 8 in September

Apple’s iPhone 8 is also expected to feature a fingerprint reader embedded below the display, a high-end OLED screen and maybe even an iris scanner. Apple typically unveils its new iPhones in September, so we’re still a ways away from any sort of official news on the device.
