Recent reports from KGI Securities reveal that next year?s iPhone 8 will come in two different display technologies. The purported 5.5-inch version of the smartphone is rumored to come in both LCD and OLED display version. The LCD display will be a standard iPhone 8 Plus. Meanwhile, the OLED-equipped phone will be the high-end model with a curved edge-to-edge display.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 8. Rumor has it that the smaller phone will maintain its usual LCD display.

Following the success of the dual-camera setup on the iPhone 7 Plus, it would seem that it is here to stay. Also, according to KGI, the iPhone 8 Pluses will also have the dual-camera setup like the current iPhone 7.

KGI?s top analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, has always been on the mark when it comes to Apple product predictions. On the current iPhone model, Kuo has predicted that it will not have any significant changes from the previous design. His prediction proved to be right after all.

Another one of Kuo?s prediction for the iPhone 8 is Apple supposed decision to ditch the all-aluminium casing. Instead, Kuo predicts that the next generation smartphone will sport an all glass casing in favor of aluminium.

This possible move can bring forth a whole bunch of improvements to the next iPhone. Least of which is improved wireless connectivity. By moving past metal cases, the next iPhone will then be able to have more than two antenna traces as discreet as possible.

More antenna traces favor the new LTE technology called 2×2 MIMO. 2×2 MIMO uses a total of four antennas, two for transmit and two for received signals. This new type of wireless LTE technology is capable of achieving transfer rates of around 650Mbps.

Whether these predictions are true or not, fans would have to wait until September 2017 for the next iPhone release. Until then, these rumors are what is keeping the brand interest alive. For sure, from now until next year, many more of these rumors will surface all over the internet.
