Report claims to shed new light on Apple's iPhone 8 design

Apple is officially selling the iPhone SE 16GB model at Rs 39,000 while the 64GB model is available at Rs 44,000. The 16GB iPhone SE had been going for between Rs. 27,000 and Rs. 29,000 recently, and now retailers are offering it for as low as Rs. 24,999, with the Rs. 5,000 cash back dropping the effective price to Rs. 19,999. "It embodies the back side design with curved emphasis, resembling the initial iPhone". The cashback offer is expected to be available till 31 March. Credit cards issued by following banks are eligible for the iPhone SE cash back offer: Axis Bank, Citibank, HDFC Bank, HSBC, ICICI Bank, Indusind Bank, Kotak, RBL Bank, SBI, Standard Chartered, UBI, and Yes Bank. For now it's just the latest rumor that may or may not have a piece of the truth and I'm sure that there will more rumors to surface on this design as we get closer to September.

Apple's goal for this technology is to make a pair of smartglasses, but in the short term, the first fruits of the effort will bring AR features to the iPhone, Bloomberg reported on Monday.

According to the source, the news (although not official) was broken by kerala-based Apple retailer ITNetInfocom (@itnetinfocom).
