The 2017 iPhone is perhaps Apple’s most anticipated phone since its original predecessor of 2007. This new phone is coming right along Apple’s 10th anniversary, making the hype even more exciting for all Apple lovers. There have been unparalleled rumors and information leaks about its extensive redesigns and new features. However, we here at Pickaboo.com have come across the most comprehensive unofficial prototype (mock-up version).
Apple has tweaked a number of different aspects to its iPhone 8 or iPhone X, which ever they decide to call it when the time comes for launching. Although the source for most of these “leaks” come from the upcoming iPhone’s unauthorized prototype and accessories (glass protector & back cover), the real specifications can only be confirmed once the phone is officially launched in September, if not postponed.
The biggest buzz was regarding the removal of the Home Button, and the prototype shows none of the previous chunky bezel to be left, neither for a home button nor for a fingerprint scanner, with a display of 5.8-inch screen encased in a very slender body which is not much bigger than the iPhone 7 Plus but much bigger than the standard iPhone 7. Instead the new phone has a curved, edge-to-edge enlarged OLED display and may opt for a facial recognition unlock system similar to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus. Many claim that Apple copied Samsung’s screen design. However, we believe that it’s just Apple’s attempt to achieve maximum screen to body ratio like other smartphone manufacturers. Whether it’s the new Touch ID or the latest Facial Recognition or the removal of the Home Button, only time will reveal the much anticipated phone.
There may, or may not be “Wireless” charging. But the phone might feature a dual-lens rear camera, possibly in a vertical configuration. We can also expect iOS 11 introducing with the new upcoming iPhone 8.
The new iPhone is rumored to be priced between $850 and $1,099 (roughly £650 to £900, or AU$1,150 to AU$1,500). If Apple sticks to its usual game plan, we should be seeing the all new iPhone 8 around the time when September rolls in. Stay Tuned to PickaBlog for more updates.
