The new iPhone 8, or whatever Apple decide to call it in the end, is due to launch in September or maybe October if the rumours online are to be believed. It seems that the launch could be delayed so it could well be October by the time we see the iPhone 8, the iPhone X or maybe they will just call it the iPhone?
It’s looking like Apple may also launch an iPhone 7S and a 7S Plus at the same time but the iPhone 8 is the phone the Apple fans are most excited about.
iPhone 8 limited release
One analyst thinks that supply of the iPhone 8 will be limited for the first month or two which if true could mean longer queues than normal on the day it goes on sale. It looks like a restricted supply of key components may well be the cause of this problem so some customers might have to wait until later in the year to get their hands on the 10 year anniversary phone.
Other unconfirmed news is that the iPhone 8 will come in 3 colours – black, silver and gold. It won’t have the home button iPhone users will be used to by now and instead will have an edge to edge display meaning more room to view images/ videos etc.
There is all sorts of internet chatter about facial recognition and a fingerprint sensor that works from under the screen. These apparently are causing some challenges so it remains to be seen if these will feature in the new smartphone.
Most expensive iPhone ever?
What everyone agrees on is that it could well be the most expensive iPhone that’s been produced to date. Could the top end iPhone go over the £1000 mark?
