Three iPhone Variants
According to an interesting rumor, Apple could release three variants of iPhone 8 in 2017. The KGI securities firm analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed it through his research note.
He believes that there will be three iPhone models. The basic model will be of 4.7 inches with LCD and single lens rear camera. There will be two premium models, one will be 5.5 inches with LCD with the dual lens rear camera, and the second with 5.5 inches screen, dual lens rear camera but all-new OLED display.
The long awaited concept is going to be a reality soon. Soon means the in the third quarter of 2017. Wireless charging is an old idea, but Apple is making it the reality on its 10th anniversary.
We could witness a significant design change in forthcoming iPhone 8. Apple came with almost same design in iPhone 6 and iPhone 7. A change in design is expected, and according to the rumors of iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 screen will be bezel-less, and the body will be made of edge-to-edge design. There is one more news in lots of iPhone 8 rumors that the display size of the iPhone 8 model would be 5.0 inches.
A whole new technology which people are not aware. LiFi is an internet technology which is faster 100 times than a conventional WiFi router. LiFi technology uses Visible Light Communication (VLC), unlike Wifi connection which uses radio waves. Is not it fascinating and spellbinding?
Update: Unfortunately, the Li-Fi technology is still in the developing process. Hopefully, Apple will feature it in the upcoming years.
Built-in Mini Projector
One of the new technology, we are hearing that the competitors of Apple are also coming with this technology and we can expect from Apple that they will add built-in mini projector in forthcoming iPhone 8 on the occasion of its 10th anniversary.
Update: We heard that Galaxy S8 will come up with this technology, later we heard that iPhone 8 will also come up with it. Now, as per the latest rumors, Apple is not featuring any built-in mini projector.
Apple is in talks with Global System For Mobile (GSM) to execute the new concept of E-SIM. The E-SIM will replace the custom Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). Not only Apple but other smartphone makers are also in talks with GSM. We are not sure about whether this technology will take place in upcoming iPhone 8 or not.
Update: GSM still working on this technology. So it goes without saying that Apple cannot develop or feature this technology on its own.
It is in the list of iPhone 8 rumors, but the chances of adopting it are not very high. We talked above about a long-awaited change in the iPhone 8 design. These light sensors and virtual buttons are part of that change. Apple could add the virtual buttons on the sides of iPhone 8, and these buttons are for the better control of camera application.
The hopes are getting higher and higher because this time the iPhone 8 rumors are incredible and most of the time in past they are 80 to 90 percent correct. Now we hear the battery of iPhone 8, for the very first time, Apple will feature a non-removable Li-lon battery of 3000 mAh or more in iPhone 8.
The colors of iPhone 8 may remain same. According to iPhone 8 rumors circulating in the market, Apple could add or make some high-gloss finish color like Jet Black. The other as it is colors of iPhone 8 will be Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, and Black.
According to iPhone 8 rumors, Apple is going to increase their Random Access Memory (RAM) in iPhone 8. The primary model iPhone 8 will have 4 GB of RAM and premium model iPhone 8 Plus will have 5 GB of RAM. Previously, Apple used a maximum of 3 GB in any of its iPhone models.
