Famous leakster Ice universe (@universeice) is more often right than wrong when it comes to smartphone leaks, but what he is showing us here is a bit hard to swallow. Not that it depicts anything that's downright absurd like a holographic keyboard or a 4K display mind you! And before you start pointing out to Sony's Xperia XZ Premium which sports an excellent 4K panel, let me assure you that it isn't going to happen with the Galaxy Note 8. What is surprising and feels wrong about the Note 8 render here is the large bezel size; something that is almost reminiscent of the Galaxy Note 7 than the Galaxy S8 Plus.

We are not saying that it cannot be so, but if Samsung decides to opt for larger bezels after being praised so much for the design language of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, it would indeed be very surprising! Nevertheless, this isn't the first time that we are seeing a render such as this one, so it could very well be the situation this year after all. I guess we will find out soon enough.

According to multiple rumors and reports all around the internet, Apple might just launch the biggest iPhone yet in 2017. What this means is that Apple will (reportedly) launch three variants of the iPhone 8 next year, which will include a massive 5.8-inch version along with the usual iPhone 8 (4.7-inch) and iPhone 8 Plus (5.5-inch). This huge iPhone 8 will not only sport the largest display ever on an iPhone, but also an OLED panel made by Samsung. The other two of the iPhones will continue to use TFT-LCD panels as always.

According to DigiTimes,

"Apple will launch 4.7-, 5.5- and 5.8-inch new iPhone models in second-half 2017, with TFT-LCD panels to be used in the former two models and AMOLED for the 5.8-inch one...Global shipments of the AMOLED iPhone in 2017 are estimated at 60-70 million units..."

To be honest, even though multiple sources are claiming it, it feels awkward to believe that Apple will actually opt for a 5.8-inch display, given how much they had mocked large screen smartphones in the past. Nevertheless, some experts are of the opinion that the size of the largest variant of the iPhone 8 will not be a problem because of the "all-curve" display on it. Apparently, an "Edgeless" display that's curved on all the four sides will be making its way onto the iPhone 8 as well. We will find out what's what when the products are actually launched near the middle of 2017.
