Apple always has a lot riding on post-incremental iPhone upgrades like 2014’s 6 generation, but especially now that the uber-successful family is on a three-year lifecycle, the 2017 sequel for the 7 must be feeling the pressure to make a big splash.

Hence, we expect more than just a redesign with better cameras, sharper screens, zippier processors and an extra gig of RAM. The iPhone 8 may look nothing like its predecessors, adopting a snazzy but risky all-glass construction, finally ditching obsolete IPS LCD display technology, and perhaps even getting rid of bezels altogether.

These are little more than wild guesses at the moment, of course, although an increasing number of knowledgeable analysts and insiders appear to agree on at least one thing. There will probably be three main iPhone versions next year as opposed to only two, letting you choose between single and dual cameras, as well as LCD and OLED panels.

According to KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, just one top-shelf iPhone 8 model is likely to transition to a fancy organic light-emitting diode screen of unknown size, whereas the other two variants should stick to “traditional” 4.7 and 5.5-inch TFT LCD tech. A dual rear cam setup is obviously tipped to grace the glass rear of the mysterious OLED iPhone 8 in addition to the LCD 5.5-incher, with the smaller, lower-end config retaining its forerunner’s single shooter.
