iPhone 8 Rumors: Apple To Use Zirconium Ceramics And A Hyper-Advanced Camera?
Even before iPhone 7 was released, there were already rumors about how great the iPhone 8 could be and which incredible features it would have. Recent speculations about Apple´s next creation state that the device could be built out of Zirconium Ceramic, and be equipped with a hyper-advanced camera.
The biggest factor that increases the power of these rumors is the fact that next year will be the 10th anniversary of Apple´s phones, so incredible innovations appearing in the iPhone 8 are very plausible. Then again, is there some credence to these rumors?
An iPhone 8 With Zirconium Ceramics Is Just Not Possible
Regarding these rumors, Apple´s product designer Greg Koenig ruled out the possibilities that the new model could be made of Zirconium ceramics, considering that it would be impossible to use the white Ceramics used to build Apple Watch with the new phone. This is because it is extremely difficult to transfer this process and upscale it for the iPhone 8, according to Value Walk.
"In fact, if we scale the numbers used in the booklet up to iPhone-sized devices and cycle times, Apple would need 2 football field's worth of kiln space for each ceramic iPhone to sinter for the requisite 36 hours. For the 2 hours of hard ceramic machining to finish the case details, Apple would need to go from 20,000 CNC machines, to 250,000. They would need another 200,000 employees to perform the 2 hours of hand polishing to bring out the strength and luster," Koenig told Forbes in a statement.
A Hyper-Advanced Camera Could Be Real
As for the hyper-advanced camera rumor, Value Walk reports that it could be real if the two new patents discovered by Apple Insider prove reliable. Apple's new patents suggest a camera module that is extremely advanced and equipped to capture light in a very effective way.
In order to do this, Apple might use a folded camera design to make this new system fit into the tiny space of the iPhone 8. While such a design has never been seen before in a smartphone, it would not be too surprising if Apple decides to do such a thing for its 10th-anniversary device.
In short, the highly expected smartphone will not be made of Zirconium ceramic, but it will probably be equipped with a super resolution camera. Although there is no official release date for the device as of yet, Apple fans are anxious to have what they believe it would be one of the best mobile devices ever created.
