iPhone 8 Price, release date, features and more

This year, as it has been happening the last 10 years already, Apple is preparing to present the new iPhone. But at this point of the year, considering that the next iPhone will arrive in late 2017, surely many users will be asking you some questions like:

What will the new Apple phone be called?

According to what is believed, this year for the first time those of Cupertino could be preparing to launch three new models.

Two of these models could be the classic intermediate models that we usually see between two generations, that is, the “s” model, so we would see the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, 4.7 “and 5.5” respectively.

In addition to these two devices, according to rumors, the most interesting model could be a third phone which could be christened “iPhone 8” or “iPhone X”, this X being 10 in Roman numerals, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary.

In any case, at least for now, it seems that the situation is a bit confusing as far as the numbering that will have the next phones that will present the boys of Cupertino. It is believed that Apple could be working at the same time on the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8, along with their respective versions Plus; however, it is possible that the 7s is simply a project they have prepared for the supposed case where something goes wrong during the development and manufacture of the more ambitious iPhone 8.

What will be the characteristics of the iPhone 2017?

Both users, analysts, and investors, expect the iPhone 8 to be a device much more ambitious than the iPhone 7s, as the latter should be identical to the iPhone 7 and similar to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

Design: Starting with the aesthetic part, the iPhone 8 should have a completely redesigned design. This phone should have an edge-to-edge screen with very small edges, in the style of the Xiami Mi Mix, to such an extent that it could be the definitive disappearance of the Home button.

The advantage of these reduced edges in the iPhone 8 could be the inclusion of larger screens, despite having casings similar to those of the iPhone 7 / 7Plus, allowing to reach up to 5.7 “or 5.8” diagonal in models plus and the normal model with a diagonal that would go between the 5 “and 5.2”.

Screen: The screens, for the first time, should have OLED technology (only on the iPhone 8) and could be curved at the edges, as in the Galaxy series Samsung; something that will allow Apple to save space and weight, which will make the next smartphones will be lighter and thinner.

The edge-to-edge display may cause the Touch ID and the front camera to disappear by integrating them under the same screen. This rumor has recently been confirmed by some of the most reliable sources. It is only necessary to know if the Home button will be integrated directly on the screen in a virtual way or if it will be placed on the back of the device or even if it will be included in the border.

Sensors: Regarding the sensors, the Californian firm could be working on an alternative to the Touch ID, it is a technology that would have facial recognition to allow the unlocking of the device and even authorize the completion of operations.

Materials: The iPhone 8 could have glass on the front and back, exactly as we could see during the years 2010 and 2011 with the launch of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. In addition, according to rumors, these two glass panels will be separated by a metal edge that will replace the aluminum that has been used in the latest models.

Recharging: The rear of the iPhone 8 is made of glass could confirm one of the new features of this device, the wireless recharge. Apple could be thinking of a particular and unique method of recharging without cables. This new recharging system would not really need any cables and could charge the device battery, inside a room, even if it is several meters from the power supply; something that until now we have only been able to see through different concepts.

Resistance: The iPhone 8 should not only include wireless recharge, it should also improve the IP67 certification included in the iPhone 7 (which certifies its resistance to water and dust), passing the IP68 certification, which would offer greater protection against dust and against prolonged dives.

Performance: In terms of performance, the iPhone 8 and probably the iPhone 7s, should mount the new Apple A11 processor. However, it is more complicated to know what will be the improvement over the A10 processor of the iPhone 7, but it is certain that the A11 will be a faster and more efficient processor, thus improving the autonomy of the devices.

This processor, in principle, should be produced 100% by TSMC under a process of 10nm.

The RAM of the device should remain unchanged, compared to the current generation of devices, ie 2 GB for the base models and 3 GB for the larger models.

Touch ID: The Touch ID will also feature new features, as well as being included under the iPhone 8 screen, it should have a new technology that would make it faster and more reliable than the current ones. The same thing would happen with the 3D Touch, as this should also be improved.

When will Apple present the new iPhone 8?

As for the release date of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7s, the next Apple smartphones could be presented during the month of September 2017, possibly in the week from 4 to 8.

The global launch of the new devices should take place over the next two weeks. His arrival in Spain should be with the first group of countries.

How much will the future iPhone of 2017 cost?

Regarding the price, these should be similar to those of the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which start at € 769 and € 909, respectively, for the 32GB versions. Also, my memory sizes should not be modified either, so they should come in 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB versions.

In any case, we will have to wait a little longer to be able to know for sure what models of iPhone Apple will present in 2017. Check out more details at
