The $999 iPhone 8 definitely sounds like a mouthful from a price and features perspective but what about the other device that will be announced alongside it? Yes, we’re talking about the iPhone 7s Plus and the latest drawings expose the features present in the phone that should have been given a lot of love but seems to have been stripped from its fair share of the spotlight. Not anymore; the iPhone 8 is also part of these drawings and they will have notable differences between them so let us dive right in and find out what those differences are.
New iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s Plus Drawings Finally Reveal That the Latter Will Come With a Dual-Camera But It Will Have a Completely Different Orientation and Possibly fewer Features
Benjamin Geskin introduces two new drawings showing the iPhone 8 and the latest entry being an iPhone 7s Plus. The strange thing about the iPhone 7s Plus is not the similar dual-camera configuration on the iPhone 7 Plus, but the fact that there is no home button in sight. Rumors did claim that Apple would be getting rid of the home button eventually, but those rumors were linked to the iPhone 8, not the remaining two models that would be announced alongside it.
Naturally, the iPhone 8 is expected to get a few exclusive features, starting with the vertically stacked dual-camera, which might include some AR upgrades. These features might not be present in the iPhone 7s Plus, thus leaving Apple to generate handsome profits through a premium smartphone pricing business model. As for the actual price of the iPhone 8, there have been some deviations as of late.
On one end, reports state that the iPhone 8 will retail for a price of $999, while other analysts state that the smartphone’s base version will set the user back by $870 while the premium variant will cost $1,070. With an edge-to-edge OLED panel and a 5.8-inch display, the iPhone 8 is expected to boast an exterior that is going to be different than its predecessors and hence become the primary growth generator for Apple.
For now, take these drawings with a grain of salt and we will be back with more updates to sate your thirst for the latest news.
