Here comes the iPhone 8: Five things you should know

Here comes the iPhone 8: Five things you should know

In particular, according to a new report from KGI Securities and obtained by Apple Insider, Samsung is going to be the sole supplier.

Forbes has also picked up the leak and points to a tweet by prominent tech leaker Evan Blass who vouches for the iPhone X naming convention.

As is often the case with Apple, this is a Tuesday, and previous iPhone launch schedules show how the following Friday is when pre-orders open.

Further, it stands to reason that the iPhone 8 - along with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus - will arrive in stores just one week later, making a September 22 release date increasingly likely. Then we delve into all the rumours surrounding the iPhone 8, including its price, specifications, and the number of variants it will be available in.

For the past five years, Apple's September iPhone-centric events have followed the same general formula.

We know the company is hosting a media event on 12 September, expected to be for the new iPhone. Steve Jobs envisioned the design for Apple Park before his death and intended it to be a place of innovation for generations to come. Another option for Apple would be to wait and add LG's OLED screens to 2019 iPhone models.

While other advanced features like 3D sensor camera components for facial recognition could also contribute to iPhone 8's expensive price tag, Kuo seems to be specifically concerned about Apple's dependency on Samsung for OLED screens. You will be able to watch the iPhone 8 event livestream just like Mac users.

iPhone 8 is expected to be officially unveiled at a September 12 event with a cost that could range anywhere between $999 to $1,200.

Apple usually uses IPS LCD technology for iPhones, but with iPhone 8 it will change. Other features coming to the iPhone 8 are a dual camera setup, an A11 chipset, and augmented reality.

Apple is expected to bring iPhone 8 to India in October, possibly ahead of Diwali on October 19.

We expect the company to position the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and perhaps the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as budget alternatives to the new crop.

It appears that Apple's rumored decision to ditch the bezel and home screen on its latest handset, while aesthetically competitive with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8, may have inadvertently caused two major production challenges.
