Iphone 8 Concept

While the iPhone 7 was received relatively well by the media and consumers alike, rumours about the revolutionary features of its successors are already making creating a buzz online.

Nomura analyst Jeffrey Kvaal mentioned that the next Apple smartphone could deliver record-breaking sales for the company. Given that the handset will be released in time for the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, Kvaal said the iPhone 8 will be offered to “a subscriber base that is 45-50% larger than the subscriber base the iPhone 6 launched into.”

So what can we really expect from the upcoming Apple handset? Read on below as we unravel the top iPhone 8 rumours people are talking about online.

1. Edge-to-edge screen

One of the most eagerly anticipated features on the iPhone is the possible edge-to-edge screen on the handset, which consumers have been asking for many years now. Various concepts were rumoured online as to how the next Apple smartphone will look if it features a more “fuller” display. This specific design was highlighted by International Business Times which shows how the iPhone 8 could look if it remains the same size but with a much larger screen. If this is true, it will signify Apple’s intent on providing its users with an edge-to-edge screen moving forward.

2. ‘Real’ waterproof features

Although the tech giant made the iPhone 7 splash proof (IP67), they aren’t set to stop there. According to rumours, the iPhone 8 will feature an IP68 certified water- and dust-proof resistance and will be able to endure being submerged in water up to 1.5 metres for as long as 30 minutes.

3. A11 chipset

Last year, Apple was reportedly working with TSMC on developing the 10nm ‘A11’ chip in the former’s 2017 handset. Expected to be twice as fast and more efficient than its predecessor, BGR author Chris Smith mentioned that the iPhone 8 will have “the best mobile processor in the world.” It will be able to run high definition and graphic intensive apps seamlessly while not using up as much battery life. Internet-based games will work better on the device, as players will have longer playing time and a lag-free gaming experience. This will be especially true for gaming portals that utilise the JavaScript programming language. For instance, the renowned Slingo platform that features an array of slot and bingo mash-up titles will run seamlessly on the iPhone 8, regardless of whether it will using the A10 or A11 chipset, as it uses the aforementioned JavaScript to run its content. The programming language is known to be ‘relatively fast to the end user’ as per JSCRIPTERS, producing results and processes faster on low bandwidth compared to those handsets running on other programming platforms. But, with the new A11 chipset in place, it will offer a more unified gaming experience for all-types of gamers, especially the hardcore ones.

4. AR device compatible

Apple CEO Tim Cook already dismissed the rumours that they are secretly developing a virtual reality device and mentioned in one of his recent interviews that, “augmented reality is the larger of the two.” The company has acquired a handful of AR specialised startups in the past, which can help them in developing the necessary features for the new iPhone (and a head-mounted display, too). ComputerWorld suggest the iPhone 8 will be AR-ready with a new and improved face recognition feature adding an extra new layer of security. However it’s unsure whether they will take out the fingerprint scanner in replace of the new biometric sensor, but it’s probable that Apple has learnt from the failed face recognition tech launched by Google.

5. Fast and wireless charging

Famed tech leaker Sonny Dickson revealed that the next iPhone will sport a new ‘Tristar 3, Hydra chip’ which will mean the device will charge faster. Also, some industry experts foresee that Apple will finally adopt wireless charging technology on the iPhone 8. After all, they have already introduced the wireless EarPods to the market. So, does this mean they will remove the charging port, too, to foster the wireless charging technology? Nothing has been confirmed yet, but these two technologies can certainly make the iPhone 8 more AR and VR-friendly.

However don’t get too excited just yet. While the handset is set to be revolutionary based on the rumoured features, nothing is set in stone until Apple unveils the handset in September. One thing is that is certain is that it will come with a hefty price.
