here the date of apple’s big iphone launch event has been revealed ,
according to Dow Jones. it is going to be on september 12 of 2017
the company may launch the iphone 8 for the 10th anniversary of iphone
– at the Steve Jobs Theater within its new headquarters, rumours suggest.
there are three devices are expected to be revealed – two lower-end models and an an all-new
, alarmingly expensive iphone 8 .
Apple’s new iphone 8
as said released
or the tenth anniversary of the product – is expected to be a radical reinvention,
with a huge screen taking up almost the entire front of the device.
New iPhones typically go on sale within two weeks of Apple’s launch events.
Here’s what rumours suggest could be on offer this year.
Apple supplier Largan Precision said that it has 3D-sensing lenses ‘ready to ship’ –
and Nikkei Asian Review suggests the buyer is Apple.
this year the phone would have a ‘revolutionary’ front-facing camera.
This ‘3D’ sensor could be used to add people’s faces into apps or games,
or for facial recognition.
behind many previous accurate Apple leaks
– says that the device will have a depth-sensing infrared module on the front.
Apple supplier Wistron dropped a massive hint when an exec said,
‘new features like waterproof and wireless
charging now require some different testing,’ according to Nikkei Asian Review.
An alleged early ‘dummy’ model of the new phone, posted online
by a Latvian leaker shows no Home button.
The move would make sense, as rivals Google and Samsung’s
flagship models no longer have physical buttons on the front.
Leaked iPhone 8 panels allegedly circulated to Chinese manufacturers show an edge-to-edge display similar to Samsung’s models.
The screen is also widely expected to be curved at the edges, like on Samsung’s flagship S8 handset,
according to previous analyst reports.
Apple has ordered 70 million units of OLED panels from Samsung this year,
while, also Samsung is preparing to churn out as many as 95 million for Apple in 2017,
so in case demand exceeds expectations,’ David Hsieh of HSI Markit.
What’s looking increasingly certain is that the top-of-the-line model is going to really cost you
– and with American analysts predicting it could cost more than $1,000.
Here in the UK, that could mean that people who opt for the top-of-the-line model –
and a big memory option – could be saddled with a bill alarmingly close to £1,000
