The 10th anniversary iPhone will be released this year and it’s shaping up to be a big update. Predictions so far include a glass and stainless steel redesign with a bezel-less OLED display. A new in-display Touch ID paired with facial recognition, updates to 3D Touch. Improved waterproofing, wireless charging, and more with its new phone Apple iphone 8.
It is rumored to be testing more than 10 prototype iPhone models, so it’s not entirely clear what we’re going to see. And because there are so many test devices in play, rumors are also conflicting and murky at this time.
Apple iphone 8 features price and release date
iphone 8 is planning to bring something Unique and Efficient like never before. As per rumors, the brand is working on 10 Different Prototypes. It is very early to clearly suggest what we’re going to experience next year. But before the release of iPhone 8, Apple is preparing to launch iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s+. So there is a plenty of time left for iPhone 8. Apple has been always known for the quality of the hardware they provide in iPhone’s.
The display will be Home to Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor and a Selfie Shooter. If we are talking about revolution, the Apple may get rid of a home button. This will be possible with embedding camera and touch ID system directly into the display screen.
Apple iphone 8 Smartphone Display and Performance
The idea of the Edge to Edge Display looks valid. But we are not confirmed if the display size will be reduced to go with the screen. Most likely, we will see iPhone 8 with a 5.5 inch or a slightly larger display screen. Apple will use latest flexible OLED technology instead of LCD, that is necessary for enhanced contrast ratio and vibrant colors.
With an edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 8 may be similar in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone. But with a display the size of the 5.5-inch iPhone. Rumors suggest it will feature a 5.8-inch display with 5.15 inches of usable area, with the rest dedicated to virtual buttons that will replace the existing Home button.
The display itself is said to be flexible plastic OLED rather than an LCD. Allowing Apple to introduce a thinner device that consumes less power and offers a better display with higher contrast ratio and more true to life colors. It may also feature edges that are curved on both sides like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. But rumors are unclear on this point, and it’s looking more like it will have the same flat 2.5D display that’s used in the iPhone 7.
As for the body, rumors suggest Apple is finally going to move away from the aluminum used in the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, and SE, instead re-adopting a glass body that’s similar to the body that was used in the iPhone 4. At least one iPhone model coming in 2017 will use a glass body. According to Apple supplier Catcher Technology, and according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the glass will be built around an aluminum or stainless steel frame.
iphone 8 Smartphone vs Apple iphone 7 Smartphone
Like the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 is expected to be water resistant. But it may have an improved IP68 water resistance rating. It will continue to be able to hold up to rain, splashes, and brief submersion in water. Instead of a Lightning port, the iPhone 8 could adopt a USB-C port instead of a Lightning connector, but rumors disagree on this point.
Inside, the iPhone 8 is expected to have a 10-nanometer A11 chip that will be both faster and more efficient, plus rumors suggest it could also include features like wireless charging and biometric additions like iris, facial, or gesture recognition. In higher-end models with a dual-lens camera, both lenses are expected to feature optical image stabilization.
The iPhone 8’s front-facing camera may include 3D sensing capabilities that use technology by PrimeSense, allowing it to find the location and depth of objects in front of it, perhaps enabling facial and iris recognition.
Apple is said to be planning to position the OLED iPhone 8 as a ~5-inch “premium” model that will perhaps be sold alongside standard 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone models with traditional LCD screens.
APPLE IPHONE 8 / IPHONE 8 PLUS RUMOURS
All three models may include glass bodies and wireless charging (though rumors disagree on this point). But it is unclear if the two LCD models will feature the same edge-to-edge display. Rumored for the higher-end device and what differentiating features will be included. Rumors suggest the OLED iPhone is going to be pricy, with multiple rumors. Referring to it as “premium” and one rumor suggesting it could sell for upwards of $1,000. Which is a good deal more expensive than previous iPhones.
