The latest batch of predictions from Barclays Research analysts fuel the rumor that the next iPhone will break the bezel barrier and go with a curved screen, according to MacRumors (opens in new tab).
Sources within Apple's supply chain told the analysts that while the design isn't 100% locked-down, it appears Apple is cutting out all the space on the sides of the screen and also dabbling with a wraparound display, Samsung Galaxy S7-style.
The report adds that this means the future iPhone could move up to a 5-inch and 5.8-inch display from the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus without actually changing the size of the handset.
Add other rumored features such as wireless charging, a glass-backed finish, and even an iris scanner, and you've got yourself an Apple device that could be radically different than its predecessors - even if such speculation should always be taken with a grain of salt.
