iPhone 8 Will Be Larger Than The iPhone 7
The highly awaited iPhone 8 will probably arrive a few more months away, however, that hasn't stopped speculation and loose-lipped executives dropping details about Apple's next-gen iPhone. If reports are proven to be accurate, the so-called 'Edition' will launch alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
Apparently, the iPhone 8 is set to arrive as the 'iPhone Edition', will be Apple's 10th-anniversary smartphone, and looks set to be the first to debut wireless charging tech, with a curved AMOLED display and a strange vertical dual rear-facing camera.
According to a source, the upcoming iPhone 8 will be slightly larger than the iPhone 7. Reports claim the next iPhone will arrive measuring 143.59×70.94×7.57 mm, while the iPhone 7 featured dimensions of 138.3×67.1×7.1 mm. This also makes the iPhone 8 slightly thicker than the iPhone 7 Plus measuring 158.2×77.9×7.3 mm. On the other note, the site claims the smartphone will have a smaller footprint or bezel-less display. Considering the iPhone 8 will be bigger and thicker, it might also come heavier than the prev-gen iPhones. The iPhone 7 weighing 138 grams while the iPhone 7 Plus weighs 188 grams.
Other report claims that it may not be available until the fourth quarter. Noteworthy, that the iPhone 8 may be available in limited quantity only. A note by analyst Timothy Arcuri from Cowen and Company has added weight to this and suggest that production could be delayed because of issues with its Touch ID sensor.
Furthermore, the highly awaited iPhone 8 is likely to be announced this coming September 2017, marking 10 years since the Cupertino giant launched its first smartphone. If it's anything like Apple's new MacBooks, next year's iPhone will be more expensive than this year's launch. As for the price, reports are claiming that the highest-spec model will be the first iPhone to cost more than a whopping $1,000.
