iPhone 8 Rumors: Latest Leaks Reveal A 5.8-Inch 'Wraparound' Screen Design, Facial Recognition And A New Name?
Many analysts already predicted that the iPhone 8 would be the best smartphone from Apple. Tim Cook supported this in his statement earlier in the month that Apple is just getting started in being the trendsetter in the smartphone industry.
The latest rumors support earlier claims that wireless charging will be one of the iPhone 8's main features. Reports also reveal that the iPhone 8 will be much bigger than its predecessors and it is going to be a 5.8-inch phone with an OLED screen and it would be capable of facial recognition.
Supersized iPhone 8
The last round of rumors predicted that Apple is planning to launch three new iPhone models this year. Earlier reports suggested that Apple would veer away from LCD screen and the new handsets that it will launch this year will use OLED screens from Samsung. As indicated in the latest rumors, the iPhone 8 may be the only handset to have an OLED screen. The upgraded iPhone 7 models could continue using an LCD screen although this decision will lie with Samsung's ability to supply the needed parts.
The Touch ID fingerprint sensor, FaceTime camera, and even the earpiece would all be embedded in the iPhone 8's "wraparound" screen. The design for the screen would be similar to most Samsung models since it will have a "fixed flex."
iPhone 8 Features
Aside from the features indicated above, the analyst Timothy Arcuri predicts that Apple will also add facial recognition in its flagship phone. This said feature will not only allow users to open the phone using their face, it would also enable some features through gestures.
As noted in a publication, Huawei and LG already enabled similar technologies in their cameras where a photo will be captured automatically when a smile has been detected. Consumers are expecting Apple to unveil the iPhone 8 in September 2017.
