The unveiling of a dramatically redesigned iPhone 8 is likely to be the marquee moment today when Apple hosts its first product event at its new spaceship-like headquarters in Cupertino, California.
But internet has it all, various websites claim to have secret leaks before the official launch and on how the apple’s new phone would look like and what new feature would surprise us? Rumors are all around but if these are true you much definitely sell your old version and grab the latest, sophisticated gadget for youself.
1. Three iPhones: iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus
Unlike the regular launches every year with a single handset, this time it is going to be three phones. Iphone 8 will also unveil it’s plus version of iphone8. iphoneX will include an ultra-high-end iPhone with a brand new tall-and-narrow design worth $1,000.
Yes, Apple is expected to sell its fanciest iPhone yet for $1,000, crossing into a new financial frontier that will test how much consumers are willing to pay for a device that’s become an indispensable part of modern life.
2.White Black and Copper or Gold
Analysts and leaks suggest the premium iPhone X will come in at least three colours: white, black and copper or gold. The white and black colours are fairly standard, but a third colour is thought to be coming in either a copper or a champagne gold hue. iphone 7 came with pink but will be ditched this year.
3. Edge-to-edge display
Here are some of the best and most plausible suggestions floating around the rumour mill. It has long been an ambition of Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s design chief, to make an iPhone that looks like one piece of glass, with a screen that covers the whole of the front of the phone. Rumours suggest this might finally come to fruition with the new iPhone X. The phone will have a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display, it will have the largest screen of any iPhone ever made. Leaks of the schematics expect the new phone to be around 144mm tall and 71mm wide. The current iPhone 7 is 138.3 x 67.1mm, while the iPhone 7 Plus is 158.2 x 77.9mm.
Apple could also replace the device’s aluminium back with a glass back and aluminium bumper. Such a design would allow Apple to increase the screen size of the iPhone without increasing its actual footprint, meaning it could be closer in size to the iPhone 7 with a screen that matches the iPhone 7 Plus.
4. No Home button
The home button has been a feature of every iPhone since the original in 2007, but Apple may be in a position to get rid of it. It has already introduced advanced pressure-detection technology with 3D Touch, and last year’s iPhone 7 had a solid-state home button that vibrates instead of clicks. So, edge to edge display will mean ditching of the traditional Home button.
5. Bye Bye Touch ID
Farewell Touch ID because your daddy is here. Face ID is coming in iPhone X which will have a face-recognizing camera sophisticated enough to detect facial expressions, and let you log in to your phone. Internally, it’s known as Pearl. But Apple’s new Face ID camera isn’t just about security. According to the leak, you’ll be able to create “custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions.”
And they’re called Animoji.
6. Smart cams
Leaks at the end of July from Apple’s own code suggested new developments in Apple’s camera technology. The “SmartCam” was revealed in firmware for the HomePod smart speaker, which revealed it could identify different scenes and objects, such as fireworks, foliage, babies, pets, snow or sport.
Also support Augmented reality directions
Clues in Apple’s upcoming software suggest it will introduce a new method for directing users. The iPhone X could guide users around towns and cities using augmented reality to superimpose directions onto the view through the camera.
7. iOS 11
The best indication of how the iPhone X could look is Apple’s latest software, which was unveiled in June and will ship on the new device. The standout features of iOS 11 are peer-to-peer Apple Pay and a redesigned Control Centre. It also new safety features, including a do not disturb while driving mode and an Emergency SOS option that will lock thieves out when its owner is in danger.
8. Wireless charging
Batteries are still the big problem with mobile phones – as good as they are, most still last just a day – and battery tech is only making incremental progress. This means manufacturers have focused on technology such as fast charging as a compromise.But Apple could go one better and allow wireless charging. Apple famously removed the iPhone 7’s headphone jack, which meant users could not listen to wired headphones and charge their phone through the Lightning port at the same time. Removing the second part of that equation might make sense.
Tradition dictates the devices will go on sale a week after their announcement, making it likely the iPhone 8 will be available for pre-order on September 15 and hit stores on Friday September 22. We wait to know what’s there stored for us, so do you.
