Apple's iPhone 8 is believed to be released next year, and users of the brand are clamoring for details. The tech giant is expected to unveil a unique smartphone, considering that it'll be the company's 10th anniversary in 2017. So, what will the new iPhone look like and what features will it introduce? Here's everything we know, so far.

According to MacRumors, Apple will be launching three, not two, premium iPhone models in 2017, with the sizes starting at 4.7 inches. All three will feature new design and upgrades.

First, the screen. It is reported that Apple's suppliers were asked to submit prototypes and samples for different screens. The screens were said to emit thinner organic light and must have better resolutions than Apple's main competitor, Samsung.

Quite possible, the iPhone 8 will be using an OLED screen. This is because Apple's rivals have already shifted to OLED. This type of technology allows smartphones to be more flexible. Thus, the iPhone 8 might feature a curved, "edgeless" screen.

The familiar home button is said to be ditched, allowing the new iPhone 8 to be at its thinnest. Moreover, it will have a sleek, all-glass exterior, which finally allows the iPhone to have wireless charging, finally.

And then there's the camera. Another new integration that Apple is planning to make the cameras 3D. The company is said to have been working with LG to create the necessary camera technology to achieve this.

Apple has yet to officially announce the iPhone 8 including its price, but Market Watch reports that incorporating the OLED technology is at least $50 more expensive to produce. However, the company expects a dramatic increase in revenue with the launch of the iPhone 8, Forbes reports.

Though the increase in sales is affirmative for the suppliers, Apple is still being criticized when it comes to innovation. Will the new design and technology of the iPhone 8's camera, glass casing, and screen save Apple this 2017?
