    According to a new rumour from Korea’s ET News, via 9to5 Mac, the forthcoming OLED iPhone 8 will have a “water drop design” with curves that are a homage to the first iPhone 10 years on from its release. The translated text says that according to the industry source for the report, “Apple’s next iPhone will have a rear case made of glass,” adding that “This glass case is a curved wall surrounded by four sides.”

    While the iPhone 4s was once rumoured to have a “tear drop design” prior to its launch, 9to5 Mac says that this does not sound similar.

    As far as more specific details are concerned, the report also refers to the phone having 3D glass with soft curves and a metal frame around the border. The source says that the phone’s back glass will be much more curved than the front glass, and this ties in with a previous report from KGI Securities that said that the front of the phone would have 2.5D glass.
