We have already learned that Apple is planning something big for this year’s launch since 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. It comes as no surprise that there have been many rumors suggesting the impressive features of the upcoming iPhone. And KGI has just reported that the iPhone 8 will be equipped with a new and improved 3D sensor. It remains unclear how the 3D sensor works in the overall design of the smartphone and what will be its function. But it’s very likely that it will be intended to work with flexible OLED display.
KGI adds the iPhone 8 could cost more than $1000, which is more than any of the iPhone versions that currently cost between $649 to $969. Perhaps, that’s because Apple will feature an OLED display and use a metal a metal glass chassis for the body of the device. Not stopping there, the rumored features such as wireless charging and 3D sensor technology could result in the price increase.
It’s also rumored that the iPhone 8 will come with a 10-nanometer A11 chip that is expected to be faster and more efficient. The upcoming OLED iPhone is said to be positioned as a Premium model that will probably be sold along with the 4.7, 5, and 5.5-inch iPhone versions. The device may include an IP68 water resistance rating, so it will have the ability to withstand 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes while also providing complete dust protection.
In terms of storage, the iPhone 8 is rumored to include increased storage space. This could be true as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus does pack a 256GB of storage. On the camera front, Kuo predicts the 4.7-inch version will feature a single camera, while the 5.5-inch and OLED versions will sport a dual-lens camera.
The iPhone 8 is expected to launch in September of 2017.
