Apple is expected to launch the next iPhone – iPhone 8 in September 2017. The smartphone is rumoured to bring cutting-edge features to market, especially in terms of its design.
A major highlight of iPhone 8 smartphone would be its OLED display. The front-facing camera and home button with touch ID fingerprint sensor will be integrated into the display itself. Unlike the usual iPhones, the phone will come wrapped in an all-glass body, reports Forbes.
Adding to these, MacRumors has released a research note by Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities. It reveals few features of the new iPhone 8. According to the leak, there will be three models of iPhone 8 – one curved 5.8-inch OLED model and two TFT-LCD models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes. The new iPhone models will come with dual cameras and dual optical image stabilization (OIS). The 4.7-inch model may exclude one these features.
Apple is also expected to bring some revisions in the lens of iPhone 8’s camera. “We believe Apple will add OIS function to the telephoto CCM in order to enhance the selling points of next year’s new iPhone. We think photo quality and optical zoom range may both improve as a result. We expect the telephoto lens will be redesigned to support OIS in the telephoto CCM, with challenges likely coming from (1) the need to increase the image circle of the telephoto lens, which will lead to longer calibration time and a more complex assembly processes; and (2) a redesign of the telephoto lens, as an increased image circle will result in degraded photo quality around the corners,” MacRumors quoted Kuo.
Wireless charging is also going to play a significant role in the upcoming iPhone 8 in unseen ways, according to Kuo. It might feature A11 Fusion processor and advanced biometric features like an iris scanner or facial recognition as well.
