iPhone 8 Rumor Roundup: Excitement Brewing For Apple's Next iPhone
2017 will mark the 10th year since the first iPhone was released. Apple figures to celebrate the feat by introducing the newest flagship smartphone in its stable - the iPhone 8.
Suffice to say, a lot of people are excited.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple will be steering clear of metal, plastic and aluminium this time and will provide the iPhone 8 with a glass body. This bit of rumor coincides with Jony Ive's desire to have an iPhone that "looks like a single sheet of glass".
Apple is working with Energous to provide the device with wireless charging abilities. The iPhone 8's glass body will, unlike metal bodies, not hinder charging speed paving the way for Apple to adopt the tech.
The iPhone 8 will utilize a flexible OLED display. In fact, it has made a deal with Samsung to produce OLED displays. Other rumored players are AU Optronics, LG Display, Japan Display, and Sharp.
Some rumors say Apple will come up with three different sized smartphones next year - 4.7-, 5-, and 5.5-inch displays.
The new iPhone will probably have the first ever 10-nanometer chips under its hood. That is if Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company or TSMC succeeds in developing Apple's A11 processor.
One of the biggest rumors this side of Apple is that the iPhone 8's camera will have 3D capabilities.
Kuo, meanwhile, predicts the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 will have dual lens cameras while the 4.7-inch one will sport a single camera.
When Apple filed a patent for its Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor, speculations immediately arose saying the tech will be used on the iPhone 8.
The only sure thing here is that an iPhone will be released next year. The exact date is still a mystery though one could easily speculate. The most popular guess is that the iPhone 8 will come around sometime in Sept. Apple is known for releasing most of its flagship products during this month. Tradition dictates they will do the same in 2017.
