Apple will announce their new iPhone 8 and a press conference on the 12th of September. According to a recent report, the new iPhone will apparently be called the iPhone X.
There have been different rumors about what Aple will call their new iPhone, the handset is Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone and this is the reason why it is rumored to get a different name.
According to 9 to 5 Mac, the iPhone 8 may launch as the iPhone Edition, whilst Dutch site iCulture is claiming that Apple’s new iPhone will launch as the iPhone X. Of course there is also the possibility that Apple could just call the new handset the iPhone 8.
Apple’s iPhone 8 is expected to come with a new design with a stainless steel chassis and a glass back. The handset will feature an OLED edge to edge display which will almost be bezel free. The device will be powered by the new Apple A11 processor and it is expected to come with 4GB of RAM.
We do not know what sort of resolution the new iPhone’s display will have although it is rumored to feature a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The new iPhone will also feature dual rear cameras, these cameras are placed in a vertical setup rather than the horizontal setup of the iPhone 7 Plus.
The new iPhone will also come with facial recognition, this will apparently replace the fingerprint sensor for unlocking the handset and for Apple Pay.
As well as the new iPhone 8, we will also see two other new handsets at Apple’s event, the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus and we are also expecting to see a new 4K Apple TV.
