There are many rumors saying that Apple iPhone 8 will release next year. Since there is no official announcement yet from the company, we can't say that this is really true. One of the hot rumor is that there will be three versions of the iPhone 8 when it launches in 2017. Some also say that Apple is planning to have the new to a smartphone to be an OLED iPhone. But what are the real specs?
Apple iPhone 8 Expectations Need To Be Corrected
In the meantime, as long as there is no confirmation regarding everything, including the exact specification, release date, and price, on the Apple iPhone 8, we will not be sure yet about it. But to point out some, here are compiled specs that we can expect if ever it is true that Apple will really release the iPhone 8 next year. Note that it will also be written here if there will be an official announcement from Apple.
According to 9to5 Mac, Apple is planning one new iPhone, dubbed iPhone 8, with major chassis redesigns and component upgrades featuring an OLED screen about 5.2-inches in size. It will also make two new iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays; these will be more iterative successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
It also says that OLED iPhone will have an ‘active screen area’ of 5.1- to 5.2-inches but the panel itself may be up to 5.8-inches diagonally. This probably means the user-interactive touchscreen will be about 5.2 inches with the remaining area wrapping around the edge of the phone.
The Real Talk
A new report from Bloomberg, however, says that supply constraints may thwart Apple's plan to switch to OLED panels next year.
Apple plans to ship at least one new iPhone with an OLED screen next year, the 10th anniversary of the smartphone's debut, people with knowledge of the matter said.
Although there are many leaks and rumors that are hopefully true, it is really hard for now to conclude whether if Apple continue to release an iPhone 8 next year. As of now, Apple is getting a big hit on their iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
