iPhone 8: What We Know So Far About the 10th Anniversary Apple Flagship

The much awaited iPhone 8 is expected to be launched sometime between September and December 2017. With all the hearsay floating around, it gives us a fair idea of what we can expect from iPhone 8 when it is unveiled.

The device will reportedly pack a new OLED display, and the price might start at $1,200, similar to the Note 8 from Samsung’s Galaxy line of phablets.

Discussions on its look and design, sensors, features and much more have been going on in many fora, including the news media.

To summarize, iPhone 8 is expected to be Apple’s most high-end device so far, and that’s including the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, which might not be bundled with all the new and advanced features. The flagship device will be the first iPhone to have an OLED display, something Samsung Galaxy smartphones have had for a while. It is also expected to come in more vibrant and colorful options, as well as boast impressive battery life.

iPhone 8 is said to be an all-screen Phone – the screen takes up almost the entire front portion of the phone. To get maximum screen space, Apple might have relocated or embedded some of the functions, including the Touch ID fingerprint sensor at the bottom and the status bar at the top. Rumors persist that this might be one of the reasons for its delay.

Apple iPhone 8 will have a 3D sensor for facial recognition, reports Nikkei. While Samsung Galaxy S8 can already do this, it’s the first time we’ll see it in an iPhone. The 3D facial recognition on iPhone 8 could work differently and be more reliable and secure than Samsung’s version, but not much is known about the technology being used.

Another significant introduction is wireless charging with the use of charging pads and no physical cable, although the Lightning port will still be there. But there won’t be any USB-C, and the 3.5mm audio jack is definitely not making a comeback.

Apple always launches its new iPhones with the updated version of iOS. iPhone 8 and the other new iPhones will sport iOS 11, which is heavy on productivity.

Finally, reports suggest that the iPhone 8 will cost at least $1000, while some maintain that it will start around $1200 at the low end. The speculation is that iPhone 8 might be too expensive even for some Apple lovers, and people might want to look at iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus instead.

Despite the many rumors and leaks, we’ll only know hard facts once Apple launches the device later this year. Until then, the best we can hope to get is a good idea of what’s in store for the 10th anniversary iPhone.
