Apple iPhone 8 Releasing on September 12: Everything We Know So Far
Apple is expected to unveil the upcoming iPhone 8 in less than a couple of weeks during the company's press event on September 12. The said event will take place in the Steve Jobs Theater at the new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.
The gathering was announced in media invites, according to a report by Apple Insider. At the event, Apple is going to unveil the much awaited iPhone 8. The upcoming iPhone will reportedly ditch the physical home button and come with an edge-to-edge OLED display.
Apple's HomePod firmware suggests that the front and back cameras of the 10th anniversary iPhone will be able to record 4K resolution videos in 60 frames-per-second. The firmware also claims to an infra-red front camera with 3D face unlocking capability. The iPhone 8 is said to boast a vertical dual-camera system, instead of a horizontal placement that was seen on the iPhone7 Plus.
However, the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also claimed the new iPhone will support faster charging, but fans will have to spend more money on a Lightning-to-USB-C cable and wall adapter for that feature. The device is also said to come with wireless charging technology, which could include a standalone charging accessory that will be sold separately by Apple, as reported by Mac Rumors.
In June, iPhone assembler Wistron confirmed that this year's iPhones will be waterproof. The new iPhone 8 is said to come with AR capabilities and facial recognition that could be supported by its rumored 3D-sensing front camera.
Analyst Kuo previously claimed that all the three iPhones (iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus) will be launched in September. However, Kuo predicts the iPhone 8 will be released in limited quantities. According to Goldman Sachs analysts, next-gen iPhone 8 will be priced over $1,000,
