Many Apple fans are still trying to get their hands on a new iPhone 7, but we're already hearing rumors about the iPhone 8.

Apple is developing hardware for the iPhone 8, which will be released next year, at an office in Israel, Business Insider reported on Wednesday, citing an unnamed local employee. The iPhone 8 will have a "different" design -- earlier rumors suggest an edge-to-edge display or ceramic body -- and an improved camera, the employee told Business Insider.

This latest report also adds weight to the rumor Apple could break from its naming tradition in 2017. The next iPhone should be called the iPhone 7S, but "S" updates have traditionally been incremental and focused on software. Next year is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, and Apple is expected to pull out all the stops. Other names that have been floated for Apple's next phone are the iPhone X or iPhone Anniversary.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
