Apple’s iPhone 8 for 2017 is already garnering a lot of speculation. People are already guessing that it will be the must-purchased smartphone among consumers. After reports from famous analysts regarding Apple’s flagship for 2016, the soon-to-be-announced iPhone 7 is being termed by the masses as a major disappointment this year.
You may wonder what makes the iPhone 8 unique and must-buy for the upcoming year. The smartphone is rumored to fashion an on-screen touch ID (removal of primary button). Now, a recent Apple blog post by John Gruber suggests that the phone will be designed with an edge-to-edge display, confirming other rumors mentioned above as well.
In his last talk show, he went on to say, “And there have been some rumors, I guess, but what I’m saying is that I’ve heard this independently and it is completely getting rid of the chin and forehead of the phone. The entire face will be the display. And the Touch ID sensor will be somehow embedded in the display. The front-facing camera will somehow be embedded in the display. The speaker, everything. All the sensors will somehow be behind the display.”
If this rumor isn’t enough to convince you, the phone is believed to come built with the latest 10 nanometer A11 Chip and OLED display. Since the iPhone’s inception, the company has been using LCD screens, ignoring current screen technologies. In our previous article, we also mentioned a rumor about Apple partnering with Samsung to introduce better screen technology (OLED).
In the case of Apple’s Touch and display integration (TDDI), the company has been developing the technology since 2015. Analysts say the tech won’t be available for iPhone 7, but we can expect it to be introduced in iPhone 8.
Other rumors suggest that Apple would be tweaking its hardware components, perhaps increasing its RAM and storage capacity. But we believe this would be available only in high-end models and would be premium in pricing.
