KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has offered a new report on the upcoming iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, expected later this year.
Kuo claims that iPhone 8 will offer a 521ppi pixel density, which is almost twice the 321ppi offering of the iPhone 7. The display is also likely to feature a brilliant resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, compared to 1334 x 750 pixels in iPhone 7′s IPS HD display screen.
The report suggests that the iPhone 8 device will also adopt a new function area at the bottom the display, which is possible due to the near bezel-less design and increase in screen size to 5.8-inch.
This new function area is likely to replace the current Home button and Touch ID, meaning Apple is likely to replace the Touch ID functionality with new biometric technologies to ensure specs don’t suffer.
Along side the new function area, there may also be a ratio change along with the iPhone update. Kuo reports a predicted long display screen with a ratio close to 21:9 compared to the 16:9 aspect ratio of the current handsets.

Here’s the key rumours circulating:
Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL may be waterproof
We are expecting an improved chipset
Google are likely to follow Apple’s lead, and get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack
It’s been reported that Google have approached LG to place an order for curved OLED screens, suggesting that there may be a curved display for one or both devices.
The screen on the standard Pixel 2 could be boosted to a QHD resolution
There is a third Pixel being planned, with rumours suggesting that Google are testing a lower spec, budget friendly Pixel device.
With an expected release date for October this year, it’s likely that all devices will run on the latest Android O.
The Pixel 2 is expected to come in 7 colour ways, including Blue, Grey, Carbon, Graphite, Silver, White and Gold.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus offers a huge 6.2-inch display that, thanks to the almost bezel-less design, doesn’t make the actual dimensions of the device much larger than the standard S8 offering. The 6.2-inch screen offers a new 18.5:9 aspect ratio (88% screen-to-body ratio) and HDR. The immersive curved AMOLED panel, branded an Infinity Display, tops at Quad HD and defaults to 1080p and certainly lives up to the hype.
Split-screen multitasking feels spacious and you can can choose Smart Cropping (either fill the entire extra-wide screen or Fit to Screen with black side bars).
The handy and enhanced Always-on Display provides a constant display of the time, date, battery life and notification icons.
The iPhone 7 Plus continues on Apple’s “Retina” display path. Offering a better resolution than the standard iPhone 7, the 7 Plus hits the 1080p mark. Whilst the iPhone 7 Plus doesn’t offer the sharper Quad HD of the S8+, the 5.5in LCD display offers great colour and contrast, loads of brightness, and excellent viewing angles.
The resolution may not be the highest we’ve seen, but it does excel with a widest colour gamut. Using something called DCI P3, the display offers a range of colours used by movie makers that encompasses a larger spectrum for more realistic and diverse tones. The more realistic visuals helps when using the expansive screen as a viewfinder for the dual-camera lenses on the back of the 7 Plus.

Now in stock, the LG G6 certainly stands out from the crowd for many reasons; here’s six of the best:
1. A 18:9 Screen Ratio
Most mobile devices have adopted the 16:9 widescreen format, but the LG G6 offers a taller, 18:9 ratio provides the generous feel of the 5.7 inch large screen without any cumbersome width.
2. Expandable Memory
A dual-purpose slot on the side of the device can take either a second SIM or a microSD card, which will allow you to expand the memory up to 2TB.
The G6 is IP68 rated, meaning you could in theory submerge it at a depth of 1.5m for 30 minutes. That 5.7 inch screen is also protected by Gorilla Glass 3 with an angled internal design so any impact isn’t directly conveyed to the screen.
4. Fast charging capabilities
Supporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3, you can charge your LG G6 to around 50% in 30 minutes.
5. Dual lens Camera
LG have retained the dual-lens camera of the G5 for their latest flagship. At the rear there’s one 125-degree wide-angle lens, paired with a standard 71-degree field of view lens. There manual photo and video modes allow you to modify the focus, shutter speed, ISO, white balance and exposure compensation for a top notch finished article.
The internals of the LG G6 impress, with a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM,a 3,300mAh non-removable battery, fingerprint reader, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 4.2, and Android Nougat out of the box.

Impressive pre-order sales figures for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ suggest that last year’s Note 7 crisis has had little to no negative impact on consumer’s confidence in Samsung.
Samsung have reported “strong double digit growth” for pre-orders of its new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices, outselling their predecessors even at the higher prices. Reports also show more pre-order customers users are choosing the larger (and more expensive) 6.2-inch S8+ over its 5.8-inch counterpart.
A spokesperson at Samsung continued to state that “the majority of consumers have been selecting the Galaxy S8+, with Midnight Black being the preferred color of choice.”
Samsung announced the devices in their self organised event in New York, snubbing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Whilst Samsung hasn’t published specific sales figures, the sales growth comes as a welcome relief for the South Korean company.
