The hottest rumors about iPhone 8 concept
1. iPhone 8 widescreen
This iPhone 8 concept is totally unexpected and feels somewhat futuristic and that’s what makes it awesome. This concept is designed on a retractable screen that can extend and make a screen as wide as the screen of the iPad mini.
All you have to do is to tap a button at the bottom of the phone where the charging port would normal be, and the screen stretches. Because of the need for the screen to stretch, the side buttons have been removed, and replaced with the touch-screen option where they would normally be. This adds a sort of oomph to the design. This also means the center button is also not included in this design. But if this concept were to become a reality make sure your pockets are wide enough should you mistakenly press the widescreen button.
