This year Apple will release a new flagship smartphone, which is expected to be the largest upgrades in the history of the line. In 2017, the company celebrates 10 years since the presentation of its first phone, and to ignore this event would be at least strange.
In fact, the iPhone 8 has turned out too simple: the design has not changed, only added two new body colors, and dual camera is available only in the Plus version. Apple apparently decided to hold a little something back to the jubilee, so in the fall will be the machine with new technologies and improved design.
Now in the industry is gaining popularity frameless design, which we could see in the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6. “Apple” the manufacturer also plans to equip the iPhone 8 display covering almost the entire front panel. In addition, the device will receive a number of innovative features, in particular 3D camera for face recognition and support for augmented reality.
Most analysts believe that this year the iPhone 8 will be released with a serious delay. Apple’s new flagship should be the first large smartphone with a built-in display, fingerprint scanner. Difficulties in the implementation of this project quite explain the delay in the commencement of production of new items. It is alleged that the iPhone 7s iPhone 7s Plus will go on sale in September, and the iPhone 8 will be released in October or November.
However, other sources including well-known blogger OnLeaks holds a different point of view. The author of numerous leaks repeatedly published truthful information about the still unannounced device, and now he claims that the release of the iPhone 8 will be held in September. According to a source close to Apple’s main contract assembler Foxconn is already preparing for mass production of the smartphone. The launch is scheduled for August this year.
Thus, the new iPhone 8 should be out in accordance with the traditional Apple schedule. Although, as noted, to the start of sales will be generated by an inadequate number of devices, which can lead to a shortage of smartphones on the market.
