A designer imagined how the iPhone 8 will look like in white

Designer Martin Hajek has created renders of what the next iPhone will supposedly look like, but this time the device is painted in white.

There have been a number of rumours and leaked images of Cupertino’s next phone, but all of them showed the handset in black.

There is a reason why: The tentatively named “iPhone 8” is seemingly going to use an OLED panel for the first time, which can display an absolute black coloration even when the screen is on.

The liquid crystal (LCD) displays Apple has used on every iPhone model so far all rely on a backlit panel, which inevitably renders “black” pixels as slightly greyer than they should be when the panel is turned on.

OLED displays, on the other hand, light up pixels individually, so when you have a black area, that part of the screen will simply stay off.

This makes for a very elegant front look, one where the screen blends in with the rest of the surface without showing a clear division between the two. Samsung touts this on its Galaxy S8 flagship, which features the aptly called “Infinity Display,” and Apple’s own Apple Watch uses its materials similarly.

This doesn’t mean that the company won’t offer a white or silver coloration, however, and Hajek’s renders do a good job of showing how the final device may eventually look like.
