And currently one of the hottest selling mobile phone all over the world. Last year, we have seen some major upgrades with iPhone and expected even something better from Apple iPhone 8. and iPhone 8+.
Both device iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are offer great performance however they are not even close to specifications offered by other rivals. As we all known Apple believes in “doing less but doing better“. It offers smooth performance and amazing camera features. But we are expecting something really cool for 2017, we want iPhone 8 to be different, that offers ultra fast performance, better images, easy connectivity and log battery life. Here we are going to discuss more on the specification, features and rumours of iPhone 8 and iPhone8 Plus.
Apple iPhone 8 Rumours Updates:
Jan, 2017: Apple is going to use Stainless Steel in the production of next iPhone and will have Glass Sandwich Design. Yes, this year we are going to have iPhone having all glass in back and rear with metal frame in between. The phone also going to support wireless charging but for the short distance. As per the reports Apple is upgrading iPhone with fast charing that may charge your iPhone from 0 to 100% in just 15 minutes. This can be biggest upgrades to any iPhone ever.
Apple can incorporate with Synaptic for new Touch ID!
Rumours are coming that Apple will no longer use the Touch ID button on the front panel of iPhone. Instead this year they are looking to come with new OLED display which may be around 5.8 inch large adding up seamless beauty to iPhone 8 design. New Synaptic Touch ID will be used which can detect finger prints from display and upgraded pressure sensitive display it will be something new to iPhone users.
Will there be an Flexible IPS LCD?
Yes, Apple is secretly working on new flexible IPS LCD display. But we are still not sure that Apple will use this in its upcoming phablet as OLED already rumoured and leaked many times. But as if now there is no confirmation from Apple. But there is huge possibility for Apple to come up with a 5.8 inch OLED display in upcoming iPhone 8.
Keep Calm its Apple’s 10th Anniversary:
A few years later in 2007, Apple Inc. has launched a smartphone called “iPhone” which is their first generation mobile phone with 2G network availability. From then this is 2017, and its going to 10th anniversary of Apple iPhones. We have seen many innovation in mobile technology in the mean time. Now we have 4G LTE and further moving up to next level. The technology has gone beyond what we can think in 2007.
In 2015, Apple has introduced it iPhone 6 Smartphone series which is really high-end mobile that time but time changes and need. Now looking forward to next generation Smartphone, Apple is preparing iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus for 2017. Apple iPhone 7 & 7 Plus already ground breaking devices but still we need refinement in many areas. First things that comes in my mind after reviewing iPhone 7 Plus is, it need to have better design. Even the phone has 5.5 in display reaching out to its power button is quite hectic sometimes and also the phone can be made more slicker with no 3.5 mm jack. We may find this refinement in Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models this year.
Here we are going to talk about expectation of most anticipated Apple iPhone which is going to launch in late 2017. Apple iPhone 8 is going to be a special Smartphone as it will come on 10th anniversary of Apple iPhone.

Here, We are going to talk about all these features in details now.
Display & Design
Apple is going to switch from conventional IPS display technology soon after the launch of iPhone 7. Next Apple iPhone is going to have OLED display which will offer wider viewing angle with improved brightness. These displays also help apple to optimise iPhone8 power consumption as OLED display has high response time and are much efficient. It can have maximum of 4k resolution. For now we think 4k is out of reach for Apple, but yes it will have amazing screen resolution with latest upgrades. The phone is also going to have sapphire glass protection which is far better than current Gorilla Glass 4. The sapphire is one of the most tough glass material on the earth and completely unbreakable. So, you won’t have to worry about scratches on your iPhone.
According to rumours it’s going to be large Smartphone which can be good move as these days people prefer to use large display phones a lot. As per few reports Apple may come up with 3 models. Two models with conventional 4.7 and 5.5 inch display having IPS LCD while iPhone 8 Plus model with 5.8 inch OLED display. Rumours are also coming that Apple will launch a homage design with upcoming iPhone. It may have “Water-drop design” featuring more gentle curve at the bottom. The phone is further protected by Gorilla Glass 5 technology and this time Apple is going to bring an unbreakable iPhone.
We all know Apple doesn’t believe in increasing mega pixels. As we have seen iPhone 6 with just 12 MP cameras and is far better in quality as compare to 20 MP cameras of its competitors. This time company is going to take its camera features further to next level. Apple iPhone 8 would have a 16 MP primary camera with upgraded ISOCELL sensors for better images even in low lights. As per the rumours, it will have a 8 MP front facing camera which is specially made for taking selfies. There are also few rumours which are stating an Sony IMXXX sensors to be part of iPhone8.
Apple A11 Processor
As per the latest leaks and rumours Apple iPhone 8 will have TSMC and ARM based 10nm chip. We all know Apple brings a new processor every year with its flagship Smartphone. Apple iPhone 7 will run on A10 which is Quad Core processor. iPhone 8 is going to much advanced processor with 10 nano meter FinFET. It will have 3GB RAM in 4.7 inch model and 4GB RAM in Plus / Pro which is far enough to handle high end multitasking with iOS.
