Apple is going to launch the iPhone 7 this year in fall, but we all know that it is not going to be too different from the iPhone 6s. The phone will look like its predecessor and will not carry any new major hardware changes or features. Meanwhile, it is being said that the iPhone 8 that will come out in 2017 will get a major design overhaul and will bring many new things to the device.
The iPhone 7 is getting a lot of bad press due to the fact that it is going to be similar to the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 6s phones have not sold well and have returned lesser sales figures than the iPhone 6 phones. Apple is already losing hold of the market, and if the iPhone 7 fails to provide good market results, then the company can only keep hopes from the iPhone 8.
So all in all, the iPhone 7 is expected to be lackluster and people are more excited for the iPhone 8. Why is it so that the iPhone 8 will be the device that will bring back Apple on track in the smartphone market? Here are five reasons why.
1. iPhone 8 Will Get a Completely New Design
A report by TCC suggests that Apple has kept all the major changes for the iPhone 8 instead of putting them all into the iPhone 7. Design-wise, the iPhone 8 is going to be much different, as it will be seen flaunting an all-glass design instead of the full-metal body the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, and most of the Android phones nowadays get. Rumors also say that the design will be waterproof, which is all the more exciting. And anyway, the iPhone 8 will mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, so it’s got to be special.
2. Dual-Curved OLED Display
According to a GameNGuide report, the iPhone 8 is going to get a dual-Edge or double curved display. This trend started with the Edge variant of flagship Samsung Galaxy devices and is also being adopted by other manufacturers slowly. Apple being one of the leaders in the smartphone industry, it is no surprise that the company wants to introduce Edge screens. An Edge display on an all-glass iPhone will make the device look more fluid and futuristic. It is also being said that Apple will ditch the LCD screen in the favour of the brighter, more power saving OLED screens.
3. Wireless Charging, Hidden Touch ID, and More
We have already heard the rumors about the iPhone 7 getting the Smart Connector, and it won’t be long before Apple brings wireless charging to the iPhone. It is possible that Apple will make a charging pad for the iPhone 8 that will connect to the device through the Smart Connector. Also, ValueWalk suggests that the iPhone 8 will get an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that can be embedded into the display. This will remove the need for the Home button that has been rumored to go away soon, and we will get a hidden Touch ID sensor on the display itself, thus making the iPhone 8 more futuristic and sexy.
4. The Most Powerful iPhone Ever!
The iPhone 8 will come with Apple’s A11 processor, and there’s no doubt that it will be the best and the fastest iPhone ever. Also, there is a high chance that Apple might bump up the RAM to 3GB in the base variants and possibly 4GB in the top variant, thus making the device even more beastly.
5. Such Major Changes Guarantee Apple’s Success in the Market!
Everybody knows by now that the iPhone 8 is going to get a lot of new features and major changes on the outside as well as the inside. The excitement around the iPhone 8 is already building up quite a lot and is trending more than the iPhone 7. This clearly means that the iPhone 8 is a much-awaited device from right now, and if Apple gets it right, then it will surely bring back the company’s profits and will guarantee its top position in the market.
