IPhone 8 to get a new name and later launch date

IPhone 8 to get a new name and later launch date

According to the reports shared by Macotakara, Apple is experimenting with prototypes to support a curved full screen liquid crystal display, with no home buttons for iPhone 8.

In February, a report claimed that out of the a 5.8-inch display, only 5.15-inch would be usable.

"A new report indicates that Apple has found a way to integrate Touch ID into the OLED screen of the iPhone, revealing the fingerprint sensor will be based on novel technology", writes columnist Chris Smith, adding that supply chain sources familiar with the new iPhone made a decision to ignore the usual type of fingerprint sensor and instead use its own Authentech algorithm and Privaris' glass identification technology to create a different kind of fingerprint ID solution.

In addition to this Mac Otakara suggests development of a futuristic 2017 iPhone may not be as cut and dry as previous reports had believed and that numerous prototypes are still under consideration. As per reports Apple will be leaving up to its addiction with its conventional LCD panels and will implement the latest trend of OLED display on all its iPhone handsets very soon.

The "iPhone X" or "iPhone 8" will be forged from stainless steel instead of aluminum and the rear panel will be crafted out of glass.

It's 2017 and with it the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone. However, this does not yet seem to be carved in stone, since one would initially want to focus on the correct integration of the home button into the display.

It will also be the first iPhone to support wireless charging.

Is everything we know about the iPhone 8 wrong? This name makes some sense given that Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and a higher-end flagship model this year.

The iPhone 8 could be called "iPhone Edition".

A recent report from Nikkei is synonymous with the above reports as it also mentions that the Cupertino giant will launch three iPhone's this fall. Shedding a little bit of light on the matter, Digitimes last week claimed that Apple isn't planning to begin mass producing its edgeless iPhone until September on account of a new fingerprint sensor solution it's planning to implement. As a quick primer, DVT is one step above EVT and comes into play when Apple finally nails down the exact design and feature-set it wants to ultimately ship to consumers. Whelp, it looks like as usual, we have to wait for an eve-numbered year to roll around for the next-generation iPhone as a fresh report out of Japan indicates the 5.8-ich iPhone expected this September will be called 'iPhone Edition'.
