IPhone 8 might be acquired in a better deal

  • What to expect from Apple's iPhone event next week

Apple has employed the services of Samsung to provide it with the OLED screen it needs to be present on the iPhone 8.

The keenly anticipated media event on Tuesday will be the first in the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's new "spaceship" campus in Silicon Valley, evoking the memory of the company's late co-founder and iconic pitchman.

Apple is expected to reveal the long-awaited iPhone 8 during its press event on September 12. In fact one of the rumor color options we have heard is that Apple will offer it in a "blush gold" finish, and now a leaked photo seems to have "confirmed" it.

It's unclear which of the new features will be exclusively linked to the iPhone X, which the Verge noted is expected to cost around $US1000 ($1241) and may be delayed due to supply shortages.

With iOS 11 GM makes it certain that the device will feature an OLED screen. Where would that leave the iPhone 8?




The loss of the Home button means the Touch ID fingerprint scanner is in design limbo - with separate theories claiming it will move to the back of the device, or be embedded under the glass, or be removed entirely.

If Apple does name the 2 lesser priced models as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus as the software codes suggest, it will mark a departure from following up the previous year's model with an "S" upgrade, indicating only internal changes. If true, the LTE-enabled device wouldn't need to be tethered to and be in close proximity to one's iPhone in order to make calls.

On Thursday, The Wall Street Journal also reported that Apple's iPhone manufacturers were having production issues over the summer. While most rumours quite expectedly focused on the apparent bezel less design or the OLED display however a new leak has left us all surprised. Apple stock marched steadily downward during regular trading hours Friday as investors started to worry that the special edition iPhone analysts have been bragging about all year long might let them down. Until now. Parts of the iPhone 8's alleged user interface have now surfaced, possibly revealing a number of key features.

Screenshots of the Home button-free display show what looks like a multifunctional space at the bottom, which is a nice use of that freed up real estate.

Apple will also bring new effects to iMessage that use the camera to capture users' features and expressions, in a supercharged take on Snapchat's popular selfie masks, these people say.
