iPhone 8: release date, prices and features of the Apple smartphone

To know everything about the iPhone 8: its price, its characteristics, its technical sheet but also its release date.
Release date of the iPhone 8: The iPhone 8 should be released on September 22nd. This was revealed by a leak from the employees of the mobile operator O2. The pre-orders would be opened on 15 September. These dates have not been confirmed by Apple.

The iPhone 8 will be presented at a keynote on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in California. Only a limited stock could be available at the exit, thus creating great delays from pre-orders.
This is the hypothesis supported by the reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that announces a stock of launch only between 2 and 4 million copies. So it will be very difficult to get an iPhone 8!

Two other Apple smartphones should be released at the same time as the iPhone 8:

the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, enhanced versions of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. IPhone 8 price: The iPhone 8 should be the most expensive iPhone in history!

Indeed, new materials more expensive to manufacture would raise the price beyond the mythical bar of 1000 euros. According to sources who entrusted to the magazine Forbes, the model 128 Go would thus be sold between 1100 and 1200 dollars! An exorbitant price that could scare buyers. This is revealed by a poll indicating that only 11% of consumers would be willing to pay so much to afford the Apple smartphone. Features of iPhone 8: Design: – According to the iDropNews specialist website that unveiled a series of shell models, the iPhone 8 would have the following dimensions: 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57.

It will be larger than the iPhone 7 but smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus. – The iPhone 8 will see the disappearance of the Home button! Apple is currently looking for an alternative. Several prototypes are being tested by the Cupertino firm, like the Apple Watch wheel or the presence of a Touch Bar like that of the MacBook Pro. – An interrogation surrounds the fingerprint reader. Apple is currently looking to integrate it directly under the screen but the technology still seems complicated to master.

Three different techniques would still be studied. One thing is certain, the sensor would not be relocated to the back of the device, even if it would delay the output slightly or finally get rid of it. The arrival of 3D facial recognition (can not be fooled by a photo) could completely replace it, for unlocking or payments via Apple Pay.

Screen: – The iPhone 8 will have a 5.8-inch borderless OLED screen. However, the display area will actually only represent 5.15 inches, the rest being used for a functional area with virtual buttons. The screen will be edge-to-edge but there is uncertainty as to whether it is flat or curved at the sides.

Camera:- The iPhone 8 will be equipped with a dual high quality photo sensor. This will be placed at the top left of the back of the device. Unlike the iPhone 7 Plus, it will be positioned vertically and not horizontally. It seems unfortunately quite protruding, which could be disturbing question of the maneuverability of the smartphone.

– The iPhone 8 would be able to shoot in 4k and at 60 frames per second. And that on the rear camera as well as the front camera! – It will also be possible to capture 3D photos with the iPhone 8. Apple is indeed putting a lot on augmented reality with its new flagship. Battery: – Recurring problem in Apple’s smartphones, the autonomy of the iPhone 8 should be improved compared to that of the iPhone 7. The battery would thus have a capacity of 2700 mAh. – New eagerly awaited: the iPhone 8 will finally equipped with the wireless charging! Unfortunately, the specialized site Macotakara has revealed that it would be slower than the standard on the market. In addition, only Apple-stamped media will be compatible. Features: – The iPhone 8 will be equipped with the new operating system of Apple, iOS 11. This one should see the day in September with the new smartphones of the mark. It was officially presented by Apple at the WWDC on June 5th. – After IP67 certification of the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 should receive IP68 certification. This means it will be resistant to water and dust. The iPhone 8 will be waterproof up to 1.5m deep for 30 minutes. – The iPhone 8 could be equipped with a Smart Connector similar to the one on the iPad Pro. It would facilitate wireless charging and could accompany the output of a virtual reality headset. – The iPhone 8 could be the smartest smartphone! Apple is working on a new Siri version with artificial intelligence. – Li-fi technology, a hundred times faster than Wi-Fi, should be available for iPhone 8. Photos and videos of the iPhone 8: As before each release of a large smartphone, many leaks reveal a more or more important month. Here is a selection to learn more about the design of the iPhone 8! – The first images of the iPhone 8 were unveiled by the American media BGR! These are real images of a mock-up of the future Apple smartphone. They confirm most of the rumors surrounding the flagship. – A model of the iPhone 8 was presented by Unbox Therapy. It was realized with a 3D printer, scrupulously respecting the latest rumors.
