The next smartphone that the giant tech company will introduce will be released in 2017, the iPhone's 10th year anniversary. Surely, Apple will come up with something big.
Apple is known for pushing the envelope and the rumored iPhone 8 will definitely be no different. However, some quarters are not sure if the next release will indeed be called the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 7s. Whatever its moniker may be, one thing is for sure, Apple will make up for the iPhone 7, which some consider underwhelming.
Forbes indicated that the rumored smartphone will sport a 5.8-inch curved AMOLED display making it one of the biggest iPhones yet. The display is also rumored to have no home button or bezels. According to rumors, Apple is working closely with Sharp to develop the OLED screen for the iPhone 8.
The iPhone 8 will also have a curved back according to rumors. Another says the casing will be made of glass though a metal frame may be necessary.
Many are letting their gut instinct tell them when the next iPhone will be released. They are also looking at tradition. Apple traditionally releases a new device sometime in September.
The only gadget from Apple that did not drop on the month of September was the iPhone SE. Since the 2012 release of the iPhone 5, every device came out during the said month proving that the company likes to stick to what it is used to, at least in that regard.
As a matter of fact, most of these Apple devices were released on the same date or range of dates. The iPhone 7 came out on Sept. 7 while the iPhone 6 and 6s were released on Sept. 9.
Tech Radar is guessing that the iPhone 8 will be launched on the first or second week of September and will hit the stores in not more than two weeks after.
The rumored iPhone will probably go head-to-head with Samsung's rumored Galaxy 8.
