Apple fans are anxiously awaiting the grand unveiling of the iPhone 8 which is expected to have the thinnest bezels of any iPhone ever. How Jony Ive will go about reducing the bezels is still a mystery, but one concept designer has a great idea: make the body all-glass.
In his new iPhone 8 concept, Daniel Csonth imagines how Apple could make the OLED screen double as a speaker so that there’s no ugly bezels at the top of the camera. The end result is an iPhone that looks like window into the digital world.

“Imagine a much more pure and beautiful phone. One that is nothing but a display,” writes Csonth. “No edges, no borders, simply a window into another world that blends in perfectly with the reality around it.”
What will the iPhone 8 look like?
Early rumors surrounding the iPhone 8 claim that Apple will use glass in the front and back with a stainless steel band sandwiched in between. The curved OLED display may feature an embedded Touch ID sensor.
Apple could get rid of the earpiece speaker by placing it at the top edge, similar to the bottom speakers. It’s unclear what Apple will do with the front-facing selfie camera.
Other new features are expected to include wireless charging, retina scanning, better cameras and improved battery life. The iPhone 8 isn’t expected to be unveiled until this Fall, so there’s still plenty of time for other concept designers to dream up other iPhones that won’t see the light of day.
