The iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus To Feature Display & Material Upgrades Claim Sources
Every year, around September, we get to see leaks and rumors about Apple’s iPhone lineup increase in number. Cupertino’s smartphone launches in September are quite an affair after all. Users, journalists and fans wait an entire year to see what hardware upgrades Cupertino’s brought on the table. To that end, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus will take a rather moderate approach. Apple won’t change things much in terms of design. Apart from an alleged dual camera upgrade, redesigned antenna bands and the removal of the 3.5mm earphone jack, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus will resemble their successors. Now, we’re seeing some rather sketchy information surface about next year’s devices. Read on below to find out more.
Chinese Leaker Claims Three iPhone Variants Coming Next Year
Talking about the iPhone, Apple’s landed itself in quite a rut. Cupertino’s caught between racing the Android world when it comes to specifications and maintaining its unique brand image for the flagship lineup. With the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, we’re expecting a more moderate approach. The devices will retain their predecessors’ spaceship-esque form. With no major display or hardware upgrades expected, this year’s iPhone launch should be a quiet affair.
Now, we’re seeing some rather interesting claims surface from China’s ever active rumor mill. While Apple’s expected to launch two more iPhones this year, after the launch of the iPhone SE earlier, 2017 should see three concurrent launches. These will be the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone 7SE. The iPhone 8 will also see a screen size increase to 5 inches.
Furthermore, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus will see display and material upgrades. These have also been rumored previously for the devices. We’ll get to see an AMOLED display upgrade and a ‘3D Glass’ material upgrade for the pair. The iPhone 7SE on the other hand won’t feature these upgrades but will be the most expensive entry iPhone to date. It will feature a standard TFT display and a metal chassis, expected to once again cater Cupertino’s nostalgic segment of users.
The iPhone 8 will be the next major overhaul in the lineup. Apple’s been facing quite a bit of troubles when it comes to the highly popular devices. Not only are sales declining, but Cupertino isn’t seeing any good fortune when it comes to manufacturing capabilities. 2017 will be the year for the iPhone, as Apple’s upgrades then will truly show how far it has progressed since the iPhone’s controversial screen size increase. Just as always, we’d advise you to take today’s information with a grain of salt. It’s well above a year when the iPhone 8 and its cohorts are launched. Thoughts?
