With the iPhone 8 being released in mid September 2017, it’s time to put an end to all the post-leak rumours and set the record straight on the upcoming major iPhone redesign…we take a look at some of the top features which we’re pretty stoked about at FoneEzy.
Design-wise, a curved glass back will replace the aluminium back, and you’ll find the larger display move visually appealing; perhaps more user-friendly too, as icons will be less ‘squashed in’. The 5.8 inch display is the largest to date (with other iPhones having a 4.7 or 5.5 inch display), but will allow for everything from improved contrast and brighter colours, to a battery-saving option on display. Despite the significantly larger screen size, the actual body of the phone may actually be smaller in your hand than the iPhone 7 Plus.
Powered by a proprietary six-core, 64-bit A11 Bionic processor, the iPhone 8 purportedly runs 30 percent faster than last year’s A10 CPU and runs more efficiently at half the power. With the A11 processor, Apple ushers its iPhone into AR-related apps and games, an industry that’s already been explored by rival companies such as Facebook, Google and Microsoft.
Time to put an end to all the rumours and speculation
Iphone 8 – iPhone 8 is releasing in the mid of September 2017 and Apple has a major iphone redesign coming up. Below are some of the top features:
1. 5.8inch OLED Display
With previous iPhones having a 4.7 or 5.5inch display, the iPhone 8 offers the largest, most visually appealing display yet for the iPhone. Without getting too complicated with the technicalities, theorganic light-emitting diodeor OLED display should also provide better contrast and brighter colours. More user-friendly too, with the larger screen providing more space between icons; think a cleaner, ‘less squashed’ display.
2. Faster Proprietary 64-bit A11 Bionic Processor
Which in lay terms, means speed-wise, the iPhone 8 should be 30% faster than the A10 processer of it’s predecessor.
3. Glass body
4. Edge-to-edge display
5. Facial Recognition, perhaps replacing Touch ID
6. No Home Button
Instead of an inbuilt Home Button, there’ll be a virtual Home Button on the display
7. Wireless Charging
The steel-reinforced glass back looks only a little different to the ? back of the iPhone 7, but more importantly, enables what we’ve all been waiting for…wireless charging!
8. Three models – One OLED, two standard
Like the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus feature an all-glass design, with new aluminum-framed glass bodies available in Space Gray, Gold, and Silver. Apple uses a seven-layer color process for “precise” hue and opacity, and the devices are constructed from the most durable glass ever used in a smartphone.
