iPhone 8: The concept design video Apple doesn't want you to watch

With Apple expected to announce the iPhone 7 as soon as Sept. 7, the last thing the company needs is people pining for more than the company is going to deliver. But when an iPhone 8 design concept goes online, what's a fanboy or fangirl supposed to do?

ConceptsiPhone has posted a video on YouTube that mashes together items from the universal iPhone wish list -- items not likely to be found in this year's new iPhones. Conventional wisdom is that Apple wants to make a big splash next year to mark the iPhone's 10th anniversary (I can only imagine how long that press event is going to be, with recent ones clocking in at around 2 hours).

ConceptsiPhone envisions an iPhone 8 with a rimless display, a 4K camera, stereo speaker and the much anticipated sapphire glass body. Wireless charging will also be built in, if this video is on the mark.

In the meantime, expect more storage, a faster processor, possibly a replacement for the standard 3.5mm headphone jack and more with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
