Apple iPhone 8 Specifications
Apple is planning to bring something Unique and Efficient like never before. As per rumors, the brand is working on 10 Different Prototypes. It is very early to clearly suggest what we’re going to experience next year! But before the release of iPhone 8, Apple is preparing to launch iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s+. So there is a plenty of time left for iPhone 8. Apple has been always known for the quality of the hardware they provide in iPhone’s. I don’t think so any other companies can compete in terms of hardware provided in the iPhone 8. Moving forward these are the specs which are expected to be featured in Apple iPhone 8.
Rumors suggest that brand may come up with the Radical Re-Design in the shape of edge to edge display. It means, there will be No Bezels; not even on top or bottom.
The display will be Home to Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor and a Selfie Shooter. If we are talking about revolution, the Apple may get rid of a home button. This will be possible with embedding camera and touch ID system directly into the display screen. Jony Ive always has been passionate about making iPhone that will consist of a single glass sheet. Moreover, for the wireless charging system, glass is essential! But for now we may only see a hint of glass in the body and the base will most probably be metallic.
The idea of the Edge to Edge Display looks valid. But we are not confirmed if the display size will surpass traditional range or the size of iPhone will be reduced to go with the screen. Most likely, we will see iPhone 8 with a 5.5 inch or a slightly larger display screen. Apple will use latest flexible OLED technology instead of LCD, that is necessary for enhanced contrast ratio and vibrant colors.
There is a lot of possibility that Apple would be trying to bring the edge to edge display in iPhone 8. So this would be a kind of revolution in smartphone’s display’s.
I don’t know about you, but I fell hard for glass body that was used in iPhone 4. So after the Jet Black addition, It is highly predictable that Apple will come up with at least one model with glass body, as Catcher Technology has claimed.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, if there will be a use of glass, that will be around stainless steel or aluminum framework.
Speed and efficiency are the words that will define iPhone 8, thanks to a 10-nanometer A12 chip. Rumors also suggest that newer flagship will come up with the long range wireless charging system. There will be biometric additions of facial or iris scanning. As for the dual lens camera, both lenses will have a feature of Optical Image Stabilization!
Quality always comes with a price. That’s why OLED iPhone 8 will be sold as the premium model. Apple is also planning to launch models with flat display (4.7″, 5″ & 5.5″). Although the estimations may look fancy and charming, still we don’t have confirmation for any of them! We can’t tell anything exactly about sizes, materials or configurations but history is a proof that our estimation has never ditched us or you!
We can conclude one thing,
Apple will show up with Three Glass Models. The unit with OLED Display will be ranked as the premium version with the Bezel-Less screen. The brand will also launch 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhones with the aluminum body!

The Apple iPhone 8 Concept Images:
Here is the concept of bezel less display coming on iPhone 8 ! “My god” take a look at that future ! We can seriously say that Apple is planning something really huge ! This is seriously next level. Seriously bro are you kidding me ?

iPhone 8 Specifications in detail:
Camera: According to Japanese site Mac Otakara, the high-end 5.5-inch iPhone Apple is planning on introducing new vertical dual camera arrangement instead of a horizontal dual camera system. Mac Otakara‘s information is sourced from a Taiwanese supplier and has not yet been corroborated by a second source so this is still not confirmed.
It’s not clear why Apple would switch from a horizontal arrangement to a vertical arrangement, but the need to fit two cameras into a smaller body could be a factor and there might be some other reason too behind this as the sources are not confirmed.
Processor: TSMC has started designing the 10 nanometer A11 chip. According to sources, the initial stages have been completed. So chances of seeing A11 chip in next iPhone ( That is iPhone 7s) are very high! TSMC will forward the A12 chips to Apple in the first quarter of 2018. Secondly, it has confirmed orders for this chip. We are sure about one thing, Apple has the tradition of making efficient and powerful hardware. A12 chip is more of a custom instead of the exception for the company. Of course, this smaller chip is more powerful and energy efficient!
Wireless Charging: Wireless charging is nothing new to the market. But Apple’s idea is focused on long range wireless charging technology. This technology is going to be superior to current methods because you won’t have to stay close to the wireless charger! Cool! The idea sounds awesome, but Apple is facing multiple obstacles in this regard. For instance, more power is needed when if the distance is increased between transmitter and receiver. If the iPhone is far away from charging source, the battery will charge up slowly!
To overcome all the obstacles, Apple has hired a team of expert engineers. If we take wireless AirPods into account, the idea of long range wireless charging seems feasible!
In this regard, rumors of glass body seem to be true. Because glass supports wireless charging. It works smoothly in the absence of aluminum casing! Apple is already seeking a supply for chips that support wireless charging. Interestingly, the rumors suggest that charging may be done with external casing or iPhone accessory!
Foxconn, Apple’s partner is checking different wireless charging modules for next iPhone. Right now, we can’t say will it be up to the mark or not!
We heard from sources that Apple may collaborate with Energous! This company has manufactured long-range wireless charging solution known as WattUp!
Some Other Important Features:
Biometrics: Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst have strongly predicted Apple’s plans, including an iPhone with biometric features of facial recognition or iris scanning. Kuo has not talked about the scope of these features. But we can assume that these features will help in accessing phone or improving the security! According to Asian supply chain, for iris scanning, we have to wait until 2018. So, we are not sure about experiencing iris scanning in 2017!
Apple has collaborated with Taiwan-based company Xintec for scanning ships. Xintec will start production on this component in 2017 hopefully! As far storage is concerned, we may have an iPhone with NAND flash memory. After having an iPad Pro with 256 GB storage, it is possible to own an iPhone with same capacities!
Haptic Engine: Apple is planning to bring an iPhone with an enhanced haptic engine, as per Japanese site Nikkei. The high-performance motor is needed to produce complex tactile vibrations, as they are essential if Apple wants to eliminate home button. Such vibrations denote key triggers including confirmation of Touch ID payment or unlocking of the phone! Both triggers are tied to a physical home button in latest iPhone!
Camera: Considering Kuo’s predictions, a 4.7-inch iPhone will have a single camera. While premium 5.5-inch model will feature a dual lens camera with unspecified size! In upcoming models, both wide angle and telephoto lenses can have optical image stabilization. We have experienced this technology in iPhone 7 Plus with wide angle lens only!
Apple iPhone 8 Price
iPhone 7 is expected in the price range of around 1099 $ to 1499 $. So the Price of iPhone 8 would be little higher and the price of the device. Apple iphone 8 price would be around 1199 $ to 1599$.
The price is pretty high and hard to afford. So we can’t say something officially about the price now. We will have to wait for the company to say!
Updates and Coming Rumors:
- Glass Body with a little Metal Frame: It is to be considered that Apple is appealingly trying to make a whole glass frame for iPhone which is unbreakable and is more powerful that Android’s Gorilla Glass.
- Touch ID is to change the frame to eliminate the Home Button and make it full of screen complete display.

The Apple iPhone 8/7/6/5/4
As the Wikipedia says :
“iPhone is a series of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It runs Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. The first generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007; the most recent iPhone models are the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which were unveiled at a special event on September 9, 2014. The iPhone 8 ans 8s are expected to arrive in Quarter-4 of 2017.”
The user interface is built around the device’s multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and can connect to many cellular networks, including 1xRTT (represented by a 1x on the status bar) and GPRS (shown as GPRS on the status bar), EDGE (shown as a capital E on the status bar), UMTS and EV-DO (shown as 3G), a faster version of UMTS and 4G (shown as a 4G symbol on the status bar), and LTE (shown as LTE on the status bar). An iPhone can shoot video (though this was not a standard feature until the iPhone 3GS), take photos, play music, send and receive email, browse the web, send texts, GPS navigation, record notes, do mathematical calculations, and receive visual voicemail.
Other functions—video games, reference works, social networking, etc.—can be enabled by downloading application programs (‘apps’); as of October 2013, the App Store offered more than one million apps by Samsung S7 and Third Parties and is ranked as the world’s second largest mobile software distribution network of its kind (by number of currently available applications).
There are eight generations of iPhone models, each accompanied by one of the eight major releases of iOS.”
