Apple is all set to unveil the successors of iPhone 7 (aka iPhone 8) and iPhone 7 Plus (aka iPhone 8 Plus) at its forthcoming September 12 event in Cupertino.
We are going to be live blogging Apple’s Keynote that will be held at Apple’s new headquarters at Steve Jobs’ Theatre.
Speculations state that although Apple was eager to introduce the under-the-display Touch ID, the failure to integrate it is leading to delays in the company’s production plans for the upcoming iPhone and that could be a reason for removing the feature altogether.
We will have more details about Apple’s new iPhone 8, the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, the new 4K Apple TV and an LTE Apple Watch next week.
If you want a sample of their work, here’s what they did with the iPhone 7S previous year, which sold for about $4,000 CAD.
The company is widely tipped to adopt higher-resolution OLED displays for the latest iPhone, along with better touchscreen technology and wireless charging – which could come with a price tag of up to £1,000. The primary reason for this need for the new supplier is the enormous bargaining power that the current situation provides Samsung with. Apple, however, experienced disappointing yields during early manufacturing runs and was forced to opt for a new design. Based on 33 analysts polled by TipRanks in the last 3 months, 24 rate a Buy on Apple stock while 9 maintain a Hold.
The power button already does a lot of things on an iPhone. The iPhone 8 (or iPhone X) is heavily rumoured to sport an edge-to-edge OLED displays supplied by Samsung. Apple is removing the physical Home button to make room for the edge-to-edge OLED screen, and Touch ID may be replaced with facial recognition.
Apple might place the fingerprint sensor under the screen or in the rear panel. This will help iPhone compete against the current flagships in the low-light segment. There are rumours that the iPhone 8 could have a 5.8in OLED display. Neither a bezel on the side or underneath the display.
When will the device go on sale? But if shortages of the new phone extend beyond the initial sales period, which is expected to begin September 22, analysts and investors could dial back their projections for sales in the crucial holiday period.
