iPhone 8’s First Alleged Screenshot W/o Home Button Is Here; Shows No Function Area Either
Another day, another iPhone 8 leak. Apple's upcoming tenth anniversary smartphone is a regular feature of the rumor mill. We've got a lot of details for the device, but the mill just keeps on giving. At the moment, the iPhone 8 will be radically different from its predecessors. One big change on the smartphone is the removal of its home button. What will Apple replace it with? The verdict's not out yet. Today, we've got more details on the matter. Take a look below to find out more.
Alleged iPhone 8 Screen Shot Shows No Function Area; Home Button Will Simply Be Replaced With Device's Screen
A lot of upgrades will make it on the iPhone 8 this year. Apple's in a bit of a rut, after sales of the smartphone haven't been what they used to be. Given that more than 50% of the company's revenues are generated by the iPhone, it's disturbing news, especially for shareholders.
Apple's response? Pile the smartphone with as many upgrades as technology allows, and then some more. The iPhone 8 will be one hell of a smartphone, if a device's worth is gauged in terms of upgrades. For starters, the smartphone will feature an OLED display, a later first for the lineup.
The device will also feature wireless charging, as Apple finally catches up to Android. This will lead the way for a glass build, something that we haven't seen since the iPhone 4s. However, these won't be the flagship features on the flagship smartphone.
Today, we've got a fresh, alleged iPhone 8 related image for you. If it's authentic, which is a big 'if', then we're looking at the first interface representation on the smartphone. Apple's rumored to launch the smartphone with a button free front facade, following in the Galaxy S8's footsteps.
The space gained at the device's front due to the home button's elimination will be replaced by a 'function area' according to most rumors. However, we don't see any accommodation for the feature in today's screenshot. Given that the function area has more reliable sources, we're doubtful for today's image.
The iPhone 8 will feature wireless charging, a glass build, a vertical dual camera setup, facial recognition and much more. Apple's really rumored to go all out this year. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We'll keep you updated.
