Apple will celebrate its 10th Anniversary with iPhone 8
On, 7th September 2016, Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, had launched iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Watch 2 in a special event at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco. After this launch event, the searches of iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Watch 2 has risen up quickly.
iPhone 7 Release Date
Right now, only one name is echoing all around the globe that is iPhone 7. Gadget lovers are dying to purchase this flagship smartphone of iPhone and for that they have started to pre-order, which has been started from 9 September 2016.
And now, it will start shipping from 16th September 2016. From the same date, it will also be made available on shops by Apple.
As we already know that from the last few years, the sale of Apple’s gadget has slowed down and now, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is being taken as a power booster for Apple.
But, still it will have to face some internal issues that in 2017 Apple will complete its 10 years and it has already been confirmed in the launching event of iPhone 7 that 2017 will have something big for the users of Apple in term of iPhone 8. This news may stop some of its users to buy iPhone 7, who can wait for a year.
In terms of design and features, it is ok, but not like a flagship of this era. So, it will be best for those users, who can wait for iPhone 8 for a year.
As we have already cleared that in 2017, Apple will celebrate its 10th anniversary. So, it will be a great occasion for Apple to make it more memorable. It will definitely bring iPhone 8 with vast and truly innovative changes in a long time, which will take it in the lead of best flagship smartphones of 2017.
Apple iPhone 8 Processor
For this, it has already been announced that iPhone 8 will be launched with the next and all new version of Apple operating system, iOS 11. It will be installed in Apple’s A11 chipset, which might have Qualcomm CPU.
This processor will have size of 10 nanometre. So, this chipset will be smaller, quicker and smoother in working and also consume less energy to work.
The last version of iPhone had 2GB RAM, which will definitely increase in iPhone 8. Hence, there is a strong belief that iPhone 8 will have 3GB RAM or more than that to access its apps very quickly.
Apple iPhone 8 Design and Looks
The design and looks of this smartphone has not been declared, but there are lots of rumours related to its looks have been circulating all over the globe. One of the biggest smartphone analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo, have also told about the looks of iPhone 8.
He told that this time Apple will get rid of aluminium body and will have glass body with display, with little aluminium around its edges. This type of look has also appeared in iPhone 4 and 4S. But, at the time of iPhone 4, some of the Apple users didn’t appreciate this look.
This is because, whenever their smartphone dropped, cracks appeared on their sets. This would affect the durability
of phone. But, Ming-Chi Kuo is assuring that this time iPhone will be retuned with ultra-strong glasses, which will protect this iPhone from any crack and dangerous damages.
Along with glass body, there is also an expectation that this time iPhone 8 will have curved or banded edges. It might also have fully transparent or colourful body.
This time we might see iPhone with very small fingerprint scanner at its base, like the iPhone 7. This smartphone might also be the first button-less smartphone of the world. That will be the perfect gift for late Steve Jobs, who was the founder of Apple.
Apple iPhone 8 Display
After the looks, now it’s turn to discuss about the display of iPhone 8. This time Apple will take the biggest change in its display. As per some rumours, there is strong belief that iPhone 8 will be launched with OLED screen. This will replace the old and boring LCD display.
Now, your smartphone, will have faster response and power consumption will also reduce. This is because, now blacker region will appear black with no consumption of energy and brighter will appear white. OLED screens will light up those pixels when they are needed.
This rumour has risen from the news that Samsung has already signed a contract of manufacturing 5.5 inches 100 million OLED panels for Apple, every year after 2017.
It might also have the 5.8 or 5.5 inches Super AMOLED display, which is the need of future generation. It will also have ultra HD display, which will make your visuals more real and authentic.
iPhone 8 Wireless Charging
Apple is also working to increase the efficiency of wireless chargers, so that it can use this feature in iPhone 8.
This feature has already been used in some latest released gadgets, but these chargers are taking lots of time to charge a device. Hence, Apple will include this feature only when it will overcome this problem.
As per some best channels and tech hubs, we come to know that Apple is right now, working on cutting edge wireless technology. If they succeed in this experiment, we can charge our iPhones and iPads from large distance, without any hindrance.
Apple iPhone 8 Camera
Recently, Apple has included the dual camera feature in iPhone 7 Plus, which increase its cost up to $30-40. This is why many analytics are predicting that this feature will be absent in Apple iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
This feature has gotten thumbs up from smartphone users. So, it will be interesting to see that this dual-lens camera feature will be in iPhone 8, with better quality, or not. This time we might see 12MP and 16MP rare camera and 8MP to 9MP front camera.
iPhone 8 Iris Scanner
Right now, a new biometric feature, Iris Scanner, is making a splash among smartphone lovers. It is recently, launched with Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This feature has strengthened the security of our mobiles. So, we might see this feature in iPhone 8 also.
iPhone 8 without Home Button
As we already told you earlier that iPhone 8 might eliminate the home button. If it did this thing, we would have to improve the performance of its motor, which will help this smartphone to generate more complex palpable vibrations.
This will help users to unlock its iPhone and to confirm its Touch ID, which is currently the use of home button.
iPhone 8 with Brand New Biometric Feature
iPhone 8 might also have all new biometric feature, which will increase the security and protection of your iPhone. Right now, it is not declared, yet. But, there is expectation that it might be a heartbeat scanner or something else.
This time there is also involvement of some more advance health related features, like heartbeat checker, sugar level checker (via an accessory), number of steps takes in a day, barometer, weight checker and much more.
Some Other Features of Apple iPhone 8
The latest version of iPhone has been released with three-decades-old game, Super Mario Bros of Nintendo game franchise. This is also a debut of this game franchise on smartphone.
As we all know that Apple’s iPhones always launch without extended memory feature. So, users have to depend on its internal memory to store their important folders and files.
That means, Apple must have to think to increase its internal memory. It has already done that in iPhone 7, which has internal memory up to 256 GB. This much internal memory is sufficient for any smartphone user.
There will also improvement in one more feature of iPhone that is water resistance. As we know that Samsung is providing gadgets with water resistance up to 1.5-meter-deep in water till 30 minutes, whereas iPhone provided this feature up to 1 meter only. Just adding .5 meter isn’t actually enough.
So for this, it might increase the depth of water in iPhone 8 and it might also eliminate its home button or change it.
This smartphone will also not contain any headphone jack like the iPhone 7. Apple has provided a separate Bluetooth airpods with iPhone 7. Individually it costs, $187, which is too costly for Bluetooth headsets/headphones.
We believe that iPhone 8 will keep the trend of not keeping 3.5mm jack to maintain the slim profile of iPhone 7. Hence, total cost of iPhone 8 will be more expensive than it’s original (boxed) cost.
Apple iPhone 8 Release Date
As we all know that Apple used to launch its all new iPhone series in the last week of September.
But, this time it has launched iPhone 7 in the first week of September to give competition to its biggest rival, Samsung, which has recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 7. So, in 2017, it might again do the same thing for iPhone 8. Hence, there is strong belief that iPhone 8 will be released in September 2017.
Apple iPhone 8 Price
If we talk about the price of iPhone 8, we will see little increase in its price amount as compared to iPhone 7. As we know that iPhone 7 is available at the price of $649 in USA and in 500 euro in UK, while INR 62K in India. In India it will be released on 7th October 2016.
This amount is much similar to iPhone 6. But as we know that iPhone 8 will have many changes, which will make it the most advance smartphone of the year 2017. It will definitely increase its price. Hence, we predict that iPhone 8 might be available in between $699-$799.
I hope this article will be valuable for you and for more updates related to iPhone 8, stay tuned with us.
