The iPhone 7 has barely been out for two months but the first concept designs of next year’s iPhone are ready to get you hyped for a future without bezels.

Early rumors for the 2017 iPhone have claimed Apple plans to make some major changes. The home button and bezels at the top and bottom could get the boot. And with a curved OLED display, Apple’s next phone may be the most beautiful one ever.

Take a closer look:

The iPhone 8

Along with the big design tweaks, some Apple fans think the company may release a ‘Jet White’ color option next year. The iPhone 8 mockups created by iDropNews show how the white body could merge seamlessly with the rest of the screen.

Apple may create three different versions of the iPhone 8, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Two versions will supposedly be Plus-sized with dual-lens cameras, while the smaller size will still pack a single lens.

Of course, all of the current rumors could be completely off by the time production on the next iPhone starts next summer. But for now it’s fun to dream what major changes will come down the pipeline for Apple’s tenth anniversary iPhone.
