The iPhone 8 is set out to be one of the most impressive Apple smartphones to date. The phone features glass panels on the front and rear of the device, a curved borderless OLED display, and no Home button. Despite the delays, there is some good news about the next flagship smartphone from Apple.
As reported by CNBC, the analyst Brian White sent a detailed note to investors explaining why his firm believes that Apple’s 5.8-inch iPhone 8 won’t arrive in September. In his notes, he mentioned that the 3-D sensing technology and OLED displays will only be offered with the 5.8-inch iPhone 8, and he strongly believes that flagship will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3-D sensing technology. Apple’s new iPhone is expected to employ 3-D sensors to take advantage of new augmented reality technology.
According to Express, there is some good news following the delay of the iPhone. The iPhone 8 will reportedly be cheaper in the UK than previously thought. The first reports suggested that Apple iPhone 8 would most likely cost upwards of £800 which will make it the most expensive iPhone to date. Currently, the most expensive model of the iPhone 7 configured with 256GB of internal storage costs £919. If the reports are true, the iPhone 8 will most likely come at a price tag between $850 and $900 for a model with 64GB of storage.
The most notable features of the iPhone 8 are the new five-inch display, wireless charging, and dual camera set-up. The display will reportedly bleed to the edge of the phone, and the home button will be gone.
There will be a row of virtual on-screen buttons, while the Touch ID fingerprint scanner will be embedded beneath the glass display. The edge-to-edge display will allow Apple to keep the physical size of the device down, while increasing the size of the display.
