iPhone 8 to feature stainless steel frame and vertical VR camera

We have another iPhone rumor and this one is predicting the new “iPhone Edition,” a moniker that has been flying around, will feature a stainless steel frame and glass back.

According to renders by Japanese blog Mac Otakara, the iPhone Edition will feature a stainless steel frame that is sandwiched by a front and back glass panel. It’s quite reminiscent of the iPhone 4 design.

This is a design KGI securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo has been speculating since the launch of the iPhone 7.

Mac Otakara claims the new stainless steel frame in the iPhone Edition is an improved version found in the Apple Watch. It will also have a vertical dual-camera setup for VR purposes, and a flat OLED display with 2.5D cover glass.

The report also claims that the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will be thicker than the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. A reason for the new design move isn’t given.
