Apple iPhone 8's new 'color' might turn your phone into a portable mirror

TwitterFacebook

A new rumor from leaker Benjamin Geskin says Apple’s upcoming OLED iPhone — or iPhone 8, if that’s what it’ll be called — will come in four colors, including an entirely new one: “mirror.”

Geskin shared no details about the new color, and the photos he supplied were photos of an iPhone in a mirror-colored case, not photos of the iPhone 8.

New iPhone might have a 'function area' instead of a home button

TwitterFacebook

There’s no lack of rumors about the upcoming iPhone’s screen, which is widely expected to be covering the phone’s entire face. But the latest report from reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities is perhaps the most detailed yet. 

The report, via MacRumors, claims the new iPhone (which will probably be called iPhone 8) will have a 5.8-inch OLED display, but only 5.15 inches of that will actually be the usable screen. The lower part of the display will be reserved for the “function area,” which will presumably host virtual buttons and, possibly, an under-the-screen fingerprint reader
