iPhone 8 or X Rumours, Pricing, Features and What to Expect?
iPhone 8 or X Rumours, Pricing, Features and What to Expect? The 10th Anniversary special Apple’s upcoming 2017 iPhone 8 is expected to come with the features that encompass the current trends and bring in something innovative which Apple did way back with the launch of first Apple device that changed the perception of the capabilities of Smartphones. They have replaced many devices after having built the capability which is good enough to do certain operations, like being capable of snapping good quality pictures to be able to replace the point and shoot regular Cameras.
Bezel-less iPhone 8
The iPhone 8 is expected to boast a brand new design featuring a large, nearly bezel-less OLED screen. The iPhone 8 may carry the OLED display technology currently available with the Apple Watch, Apple MacBook’s Touch Bar display, may have a curved one made out of plastic, according to The Korea Herald.
iPhone may source the curved displays from Samsung which is said to be capable of supplying a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple.
iPhone 8 Display
Apple is said to be designing a 5.8-inch display which is a significant jump from the 5″ regular iPhone 7. We can expect Apple to go away with the Home Screen button (as mentioned is most of the rumors and designs from various sources). This seems logical if we were to think of a bezel-less design which would require the display to act as a scanner if it’s not on the back of the device. It also sounds in line with the Samsung’s Galaxy 8 rumor which mentions something in the similar lines of building a bezel-less design with Fingerprint sensor on the screen itself. According to various reports, “The home button which will also act as a fingerprint sensor, will be baked into the front glass panel”.
iPhone 8 Price?
According to the reports, the new variant may cost you a $1,000. Considering the whole bunch of new features with a 3D laser scanner, OLED screen, the new glass casing, the production cost is bound to increase but if $1,000 is still close to the current price. We believe that it’s quite ambitious of us to expect this much level of changes in the new variant, but who knows we might be up for a surprise?. The analyst believes that the laser scanner could be more secure than Touch ID.
iPhone 8 Camera
According to a report published by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone’s 8 front Camera may come with the infrared sensor with the capability to trace the three-dimensional space that could help enable it capture better selfies, but also allow for IRIS recognition, facial recognition and support the augmented reality.
iPhone 8 Battery
Apple iPhone 8 may come with wireless charging currently found in Samsung and Nexus devices. Apple seems to be inclined to the idea of it beyond the Apple Watch. The methods for induction through metal are being introduced, which means it’s possible Apple could keep the aluminum back as required for the technology to work and offer wireless charging.
Other Expected Features
A well-known Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 8 may have “other biometric technologies that replace the current fingerprint recognition technology.” This might be unlikely as we mentioned that these substantial changes may take the pricing way beyond the $1,000 mark, but it’s something we have to take seriously considering the source.
