The first version of iPhone 7 has been released in 2007, which means that Apple Inc. will celebrate a decade of iPhone next year. In other words, this will be a great time to release a “special” iPhone 8.
It is good to know that in the past three years, Apple has kept the same design on its iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, but the iPhone 8 is expected to hit the market with a design that nobody has seen before.
Robert Scoble, a well known “technical evangelist”, claims that the next iPhone will come with a next-generation OLED screen. In addition, the iPhone 8 owners will be able to turn the device into a headset. Slash Gear says that the handset will come packed with an eye sensor that will allow it to have higher apparent frame rate and polygon count in comparison with a PC that uses an NVIDIA 1080 card.
At the same time, Scoble claims that the iPhone 8 will come with a next-generation 3D sensor from Primesense (an Israeli 3D sensing company), which Apple has already purchased. The American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, has over 600 engineers that work in the 3D sensing company to build the sensor.
However, we remind you that these are just rumors and Apple is currently mum (like usual) when it comes to the specs of the iPhone 8. The company will most likely make an official announcement regarding this device sometime in the second quarter of 2017. If Apple will keep its release date pattern, the iPhone 8 will hit the stores sometime in the month of September 2017.
