"Final" design of iPhone 8
The profile resource BGR presented interesting live photos of the layout of the iPhone 8. According to the source, for these photos, users can first get acquainted with the final design of the re-interpreted iPhone 8 in real life.
As noted by BGR, they exclusively received a photo of the layout of the iPhone 8, presumably created under the present definitively approved drawings, leaked from the factories engaged in the production of next-generation Apple smartphones.
The layout does not reflect the fingerprint scanner on the rear panel, and it's unclear whether this is an indication of the integration of the TouchID sensor in the display or the speech is just about inaccuracy. This confirms the glass 2.5D-panel rear and front, the steel frame between them, the protrusion of the main dual camera, organized vertically, which includes a flash and a microphone, the absence of a 3.5-mm headphone jack, which never returns.
Recall that in 2017, most analysts expect a great redesign, since Apple will celebrate 10 years with the release of the first iPhone. As one of the upcoming innovations most often mentioned OLED-display. It is rumored that the iPhone 8 will receive a touch screen in the entire front panel, the hardware Home button will turn into a virtual one, in fact, its functions, including fingerprint recognition of the Touch ID, will execute the screen section. Also reported on advanced biometric capabilities, improved mechanism of tactile feedback Taptic engine and wireless charging.
However, there is a version of minor changes in the following iPhone. According to sources from Taiwanese suppliers, Apple's new smartphones will not be iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. At the same time, they will become updated versions of the current generation, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, without significant design changes. The main innovation will be the A11 processor, but rumors of a glass case and wireless charging are not justified. In addition, it is reported on the appearance of an additional color option – red. It also assumes the output of an average 5-inch iPhone with a dual camera, mounted vertically, and not horizontally like the iPhone 7 Plus.
The latest leaks, however, predict the emergence of three versions – the luxury iPhone 8 or iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED-screen costing more than $ 1000, and a 4.7-inch model with an LCD-display under the probable name iPhone 7s and 5, 5-inch LCD iPhone 7s Plus, which will receive fewer differences from the current generation of Apple smartphones. Since the release of the original iPhone in 2007, Apple is releasing the next generation once a year. With the release of the iPhone 3GS in 2009, the company has established the tradition of even-numbered years to produce a noticeable update with the next figure in the model name and a new design of the case, and on odd – a model with a suffix "s" in the title and changes, mainly relating to "under-hood" And program components. Based on this tradition, the appearance in 2017 of models of iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus looks logical. Nevertheless, given the anniversary release and reports of analysts about low sales of the iPhone 7, experts tend to expect a significantly improved iPhone 8 for next year, not in 2018. The current generation of smartphones, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company presented to the public on September 7 2016 year. The main innovations were the design with the plastic inserts for antennas shifted to the edges, the protection against water according to the IP67 standard, the touch, not the mechanical one, the Home button and the powerful quad-core Apple A10 processor. In addition to everything else, the large 7 Plus version uses a dual camera with an optical zoom and blurring of the background of pictures in the style of SLR cameras. In addition, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus lost 3.5-mm audio jack mini-jack, but in the kit with the smartphone is supplied a cable adapter for connecting ordinary headphones to the port Lightning. At the time of release, the iPhone 7 was the most powerful smartphone in the world.
