Previously we have heard that Apple will struggle to launch its 10th-anniversary phone–iPhone 8–during its usual launch timeframe. The previous rumours suggested that the OLED iPhone will be delayed due to the shortage of components needed for its production.
But now fresh leaks propose that the iPhone 8 along with the regular models–iPhone 7s and 7s+–will not get delayed, and Apple will begin selling them in October following their September unveiling. The Chinese-language Economic Daily News claimed that there would be no delay for the launch of next iteration of iPhones and Apple will successfully manage to continue the annual ritual.
The iPhone 8 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch edge-to-edge curved OLED display, and also an advanced facial recognition functionality through a 3D sensor in the front-facing camera. A vertically oriented dual-camera setup sits on the rear, and it is also speculated to feature a glass body.
iPhone 7S will feature a 4.7-inch LCD, while 7S Plus will have a 5.5-inch one. Speaking of internals, not many details are available, but it is evident that it will have a better specs sheet than its predecessor.
Besides, all the three iPhones–the iPhone 8, 7s, and 7s+–will support wireless charging and also come with dust and water resistance. Apple will ditch the physical home button this time in the iPhone 8 and instead replace it with a Touch ID embedded in the display itself. Nevertheless, the regular variants will retain the physical home button.
Coming to the brain, the iPhone 8 will be powered by a more powerful 10NM A11 chipset. Other extra features include 3D Touch gen2, 1GB modem with a DL of 1GBPS, and also fast charging because of its two-cell battery.
Also, Samsung is preparing to render 95 million OLED curved panels to Apple this year, and according to some analysts, Apple will ditch the standard LCD panels and instead use OLED panels for their next year iPhones. This year’s iPhones will make cash counters ticking for Apple, and the company will surely achieve record breaking sales.
