2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple has something major planned to celebrate the occasion. We’ve got several months to go until the launch of the iPhone 8, but because of Apple’s ambitious plans for the device, there are already an abundance of rumors hinting at the impressive features coming in the 2017 iPhone.
Market Status: No official announcement or confirmation yet.
Rumors suggest the iPhone 8 will feature a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead, rumors suggest Touch ID will either be built into the display or eliminated entirely in favor of facial recognition technology.
There will be no physical Home button on the iPhone 8 and no bezels aside from a small area for the front-facing camera 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.
the smartphone is powered by the most powerful engine by Apple in the the form of a quad-core processor, that is laid on a chipset of Apple A11. Together, they clock a speed of 2.5GHz. Moreover, the high RAM value of 4GB gives you the best ever multitasking and gaming experience.
The Apple flagship phone comes with a default inbuilt storage of 32GB which can be further expanded up to 256GB with the help of a microSd card
The Apple iPhone 8 is fitted with great pair of snappers. The primary camera includes a couple of 12MP lens that is further enhanced with the help of Back-illuminated sensor, autofocus, quad-colour LED flash, optical image stabilization, ISO control, High Dynamic Range mode and 1.8f aperture which, together, can process images of 4,608 x 2,592 pixels resolution and can record videos of up to 3,840 x 2,160 at 30 frames per second.
The 7MP front camera too proves to be a very good option if you love clicking high quality selfies or love indulging in video calling as it comes with 2.2f aperture and Retina flash.
The Apple iPhone 8 draws its fuel from a powerful 3,000mAh li-ion battery which claims to deliver a very long period of battery life. Moreover, the quick charging facility, along with inbuilt wireless charging feature make it an even more desirable smartphone.
Apple iPhone 8 is expected to launched on August 5,2017(unofficial) in India at an expected price of Rs. 64,990.
