iPhone 8 News and Updates: A bigger, Better and Brighter Screen for a New Future
For months now, we are witnessing heated debates on whether Apple will deliver on the promise of the best iPhone experience in 2017, which will also mark the 10th year of the iPhone. Much has changed in the last 10 years and not all are for good. This goes for the iPhone as well. While it has garnered critical and commercial acclaim for the flagship iPhones, there have also been controversies, including allegations of overpricing and malafide business intentions like selling wireless headphones separately. Things will hopefully change for the better in 2017. We can expect the best iPhone experience to date with an all-glass OLED display metal uni-body for the new phone.
One of the initial worries which Apple will have is how to woo the average Android user to the Apple experience. The new iPhone there will arrive in three different models; with all three having glass chassis, wireless charging and thinner, brighter OLED screens. Additionally, the home button will be history, if rumours are to be believed. We have many conflicting reports on what features the new flagship phone will have. Our universal consensus is: the
iPhone 8 is said to be 5.8 inches diagonally with OLED (Organic light-emitting diode). Two of the models will feature TFT-LCD (Thin-film transmitter liquid-crystal display). One will be 4.7 inches and the other 5.7 inches. Some rumors say the larger TFT-LCD model also will have wireless charging, but the reports conflict. All the models will have a glass back, that is for certain. The increased conductivity in the glass chassis is said to be the one solid factor that will aid in wireless charging.
The iPhone 8 could be the one iPhone model that is poised to attract more Android users than ever before. The reasoning is simplicity itself: Android users, while almost always presented with many options from numerous manufacturers globally, are just as loyal to their OS as iPhone users are to iOS. Yet, the upcoming edge-less, or bezel-less design, wireless charging and OLED are pretty attractive selling points when considering a hardware switch for the standard Android user as well. It remains to be seen how many users will actually switch, however.
Another recent rumour has added a new dimension and a feature to this equation: Apple apparently plans to release updated versions of the current models, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with two other models in 2017, allegedly named the “iPhone 7s” and “iPhone 7s Plus,”. These models will look similar to the currently available models and will feature aluminum bodies, with most of the changes being internal, such as the introduction of a new “A11” chip. The only visible change will be that of colour options: Apple is set to introduce a Red version, or even a Pink one to go along with the current palette of Space Gray, Jet Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver options.
Many Apple users, it is expected, who did not switch when the iPhone 7 was introduced months ago, will probably jump ship as and when these newer and possibly better phones come out. With them, if Apple can induce the Android phone users too, Apple iPhone 8 will be a name to reckon with and will make Apple’s 10th anniversary that much more special.
