The iPhone 8 is expected to feature a near bezel-less display with a vertically-aligned dual-camera setup. The other two iPhone models to be launched are most probably the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. Both these phones are rumoured to be similar in design to the iPhone 7, apart from having a glass back instead of an aluminum one.

New reports have claimed that the iPhone 7s  will be thicker than the iPhone 7 due to this glass-back design. Leaked schematics have also revealed that the iPhone 7s may, in fact, be larger in all dimensions in comparison to its predecessor.

The iPhone 7 has dimensions of 138.31x67.14x7.1 mm while the 7s will measure 138.44x67.27x7.21 mm. However small these increments might be, users will find it difficult to put the 7s in the mobile case for the iPhone 7. Interestingly, at 7.92 mm, the camera bulge of the 7s will be be less than on the iPhone 7, which has a bulge of 8.18 mm.

Also, the fact that there is an absence of antenna bands on the back for all three of the new models may indicate that wireless charging is finally coming to the iPhone.
