Everything We Know so Far About The iPhone 8

Apple is widely
expected to launch new iPhones in September.
There’s been a
ton of speculation and reports about the upcoming iPhone, including that it’ll
be redesigned.

The pressure is
on Apple, too. It’s the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone, launched in 2007,
and the company is expected to have some big plans to mark the occasion.
Here’s what you
need to know about the upcoming iPhone:
Apple is expected to launch three iPhones: one
that’s redesigned, and two updates to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Analysts
have suggested several names for the redesigned iPhone, including “iPhone
Pro,” “iPhone Edition,” “OLED iPhone,” and
“iPhone 8,” which we’re calling it. 
This report will focus entirely
on the iPhone 8.

The redesigned iPhone is the model that has received
the most attention. It’s expected to have an edge-to-edge, curved screen with
much smaller bezels than the current iPhone 7. The screen uses a newer kind of
display technology called OLED that promises to use less power and provide
darker blacks.

Apple seemingly confirmed the iPhone 8 redesign with
significantly smaller bezels in this image included in HomePod firmware it
distributed. The codename for this image? D22.

This design would allow Apple to pack more screen
into the same size phone.
This bigger screen is expected to have a resolution
of 1125×2436, according to Apple’s leaked code as well as a forecast from KGI
Securities
.
The iPhone 8 is expected to have a front camera with
3D sensing and modeling functions, allowing it not only to take photos, but
also to manipulate them. The front-facing camera will be used for facial
recognition, either to replace the Touch ID fingerprint sensor or to supplement
it.
The rear camera will also have its two rear lenses
vertically oriented, as opposed to horizontal, like on the iPhone 7 Plus.
With a new edge-to-edge design, Apple is expected to
eliminate the home button and build its functions into the screen.
It’s unclear whether the fingerprint sensor will be
built into the screen as well or whether the new “Face ID” feature
replaces it.
And finally, Apple will also be adding wireless charging to the models coming out in September.
