Apple iPhone 8 Rumors: Apple Anniversary iPhone To Be Called iPhone X, New Apple Factory In China
The next iPhone could be called the iPhone X.
This is what Apple Insider is telling everyone who would listen. According to its report, Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company heard from a source directly involved in Apple's supply chain that three new handsets will be released this year which will be headlined by the "iPhone X".
Apple Insider supposedly received a copy of a research note sent to investors which contained the details regarding the iPhone X and other units.
According to PC Advisor, the iPhone X could well be the iPhone 8 everyone is expecting. The other two smartphones slated for a 2017 release could be the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The iPhone X/iPhone 8 or "Ferrari" is expected to be the premium flagship smartphone for the tech giant.
iPhone X Features
It is quite difficult to pinpoint the exact features and specifications that the next iPhone or iPhones will have just for the fact that rumors have a tendency to be proven wrong. That said, the following details are still under the rumored category:
- 4.7-, 5.5- and 5.8-inch variants
- All-glass casing which will enable wireless charging as metal alloys may hinder fast charging
- Edge-to-edge OLED display which means the end of the iconic home button
- Thinner body thanks to new speaker design
- Main logic board divided into two parts
- SIM tray moved to the bottom edge to possibly have a Smart Connector
- Facial recognition
Apple's New China Factory
Another interesting bit of news from the Apple front is that the tech giant is planning to build a factory in China. The R&D center will be located in Shenzen which is where the iPhone are actually assembled.
Foxconn, a manufacturing partner of Apple, will also build a factory beside Apple. This will allow the process of making an iPhone easier, smoother, and less likely to have leaks.
