iPhone 7/7 Plus unveiled less than a month ago, the phones received a mix reactions (most notably because of the decision to remove the 3.5 mm audio jack from the model), Apple seems to struggle with the sales, but nevertheless we already received the first info regarding the next model, iPhone 8.
According to reports, iPhone 8 is already in the development stage at Apple’s office located in Herzliya, Israel. One employee working at Apple’s Israeli office shared details about the upcoming iPhone 8 with Business Insider. The source told the new model will sport a completely different design and will feature a better camera. The design change is expected, since Apple re-used the iPhone 6/6s design on the newest model, with only antenna lines placed differently. And the next year marks 10 years since the release of the original iPhone, so Apple certainly prepares something special with iPhone 8, and the 10-year anniversary is a probable reason why the next model won’t be called iPhone 7s.
Apple’s Herzliya office mostly works on the development of “new products” incorporating new tech solutions to be used with the upcoming devices. The office has 800 employees, but there has been only one willing to share some details, about the next year’s flagship smartphone model from Apple.
The info shared comes after Ming Chi-Kuo, an analyst from KGI, stated Apple will use an all-glass body for the next iPhone model, instead of an aluminum casing used in the last couple of models (iPhone 6/6s). He also noted that a radical design change will make the next year’s iPhone to greatly differentiate from the other smartphone models.
This all makes sense since 2017 will mark ten years since the release of the first iPhone and we are sure Apple will try to make the next model special in order to celebrate the anniversary.
