The Release Date of the iPhone 8 is rumoured a lot because people are waiting for the iPhone 8 eagerly. Since the iPhone 7 didn’t receive any special upgrades; people are expecting iPhone 8 will come with the whole new design of the iPhone 8.
It is alleged that the iPhone 8 will ditch the metal body and come up with the glass body in order to support the wireless charging concept.
The iPhone 8 might receive the curved OLED display, which can be a significant upgrade for the iPhone 8 users. Since the LCD display requires the backlight to charge the pixels, but in case of OLED display the pixels are charged when necessary.
The rumours are that the Home Button will be ditched in the iPhone 8 and 3D sensing face recognition feature will be introduced in the iPhone 8.
Apple iPhone 8 Price

iPhone 8 Features
If we try to depict the changes, then we can see that the handset’s screen-to-body ratio will be changed. The ratio describes that the screen of the phone will be completely occupied by the display. This feature was used by the LG and then followed by Samsung.
To occupy the entire screen for the display, the TouchID sensor has to be removed and the face recognition 3D sensors have to be added, to occupy the entire screen for the display. Also, there are dummy versions of the iPhone 8 available with a glass back which can be used for the wireless charging and a dual camera.
Another interesting feature can be the “Blush Gold” color of the iPhone 8
iPhone 8 Specs
Let’s have a detailed view on the specs of the iPhone 8
The big news is that the Apple is going to use the OLED display on the Apple iPhone 8. They have the conventional LCD panels on the iPhone, but unlike LCD plans the OLED screen produces their own lights. So, now your screen will not need the saving power and backlight.
Reportedly, Apple will launch the iPhone 8 in three different sizes: 4.7-inches, 5.5-inches, and 5.8-inches. The speculation is that all the three models of the iPhone will get the new screen, but the iPhone 8 will only get the OLED upgrade. Since the Home Button will be absent in the iPhone 8, the speculation is that the bottom of the iPhone 8 will be used for some other functions.
This new display function area at the bottom can provide the custom controls to the users depending upon the app the customer is using. Also, there is a talk that apple can use the iPad Pro’s ambient light-adjusting True Tone display, to display the True Color.
Apple is likely to introduce a new system-on-chip (SoC) for the iPhone 8. In all the iPhones they released, they have used a new processor chip. The Apple iPhone 7 runs on the A10 Fusion chip, so the iPhone 8 will use the new SoC may be the new A11 processor.
There are the reports that the Taiwan’s TSMC has won the contract to build the new chip on a 10nm FinFET manufacturing process. The production of the chip has already started. If you are unaware of the 10nm chip, then let me tell you that it describes the manufacturing process of the chip. If the number is lower, then it means the transistors are more closely packed in the chip. Transistors allow the device to complete the computing if more transistors then the device can finish more computing simultaneously. Eventually, this means that you can increase the power efficiency.
If we take a deep dive on the Camera, then it is believed that Apple will carry forward their dual-lens camera of the Apple iPhone 7 plus to iPhone 8. But, it is not sure that this carry forward will be only for the few selected models or the complete range of the iPhone 8. The only change noticed is that the both the lenses of the camera will receive optical istabilizationation. Also, it is expected to use a “revolutionary” front camera which features 3D-sensing capabilities. This feature can be used to locate the depth and location of the objects in the 3D space.
Apple has formed the team of the software and hardware veterans with the expertise in the augmented reality. The interesting feature is that you can take the picture and then you can change the depth of the specific pictures later. You can isolate the object in the image. So, the iPhone camera features will rely on the depth sensing technology and use the algorithms created by the PrimeSense.
There are huge speculations that Apple might add Wireless charging in the Apple iPhone 8 finally. The Apple joined the Wireless Power Consortium back in February and WPC is developing the Qi wireless charging standard for iPhone 8. There are also rumoured that the iPhone 8 will receive the glass body which makes the news of wireless charging more likely. But, the glass body will only be received by few models of the iPhone 8.
But, the latest news is that the wireless charging may not be available for the iPhone 8 immediately. But, inductive charging accessories will be sold separately rather in the standard box.
Another speculation is that Apple might remove the Lightning port of USB – C. But, it is speculated that the USB – A portion of the charging cable will be replaced by the USB – C, whereas the other end will remain as the Lightning Connector.
Apple has showcased the latest version of its operating system: iOS 11. But, there is no proper release date confirmed for the iOS 11. So, it is guaranteed that the Apple iPhone 8 will run on the iOS 11 version.
It clearly states that with the iOS 11, the iPhone 8 will receive plenty of upgrades. The iMessages will be upgraded and the apps and stickers will be upgraded. The Sirir will receive the new voice, and the lifelike feature will be added in the new version of the iPhone operating system.
