Apple might come out with a 5-inch iPhone sporting iSight dual-cameras in 2017, similar the ones on its iPhone 7 Plus which was launched this year. But there is a slight twist — instead of the usual horizontal placing of dual cameras, Apple might place them vertically on the new iPhone, Japanese tech site Macotakara reported Tuesday.

According to the report, iPhone 8 (it may also be called iPhone 7s) will mark a change in iPhone and iPhone Plus series’ display sizes. Apple's next smartphone might have 5-inch and 5.8-inch displays instead of the 4.7-inch and 6-inch ones on the current models.

The next iPhone is expected to release in the second quarter of 2017. These are not the only rumors that have surfaced about the upcoming smartphone. The device is expected to have an OLED display variant with sensors and fingerprint sensor embedded in the display.

The company is expected to get rid of its home button and go for a glass design, which supports wireless charging. An A11 processor under the hood based on the 10-nm processor technology, iris/facial scanning and a multi-sensor camera are some other rumors that have surfaced about the smartphone.
