On the other hand, some rumours hint at iPhone X. This is because X stands for 10 in Roman, which also marks Apple's 10th year anniversary. But unlike Samsung whose latest devices have curved screens the reports indicate that Apple is maintaining a flat display.
Friday, September 15 is a highly logical guess as to when pre-orders will start, and unsurprisingly, that's the date being cited by German site Macerkopf. This is why he believes that Apple "may abandon" Touch ID completely for the iPhone 8, but he didn't say definitively that Apple would do so. But the iPhone 8 will be in its own league when it comes to price.
It came to light when MacRumors received an anonymous tip claiming that the Chief Executive Officer of Apple Inc., Tim Cook, would officially announce the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
The iPhone is all geared up to be unveiled next week on September 12 in a press conference taking place at Apple's new headquarters called Apple Park. The event will be held at the new Steve Jobs Theater in Apple's new campus on September 12.
Being the company's 10 anniversary iPhone model, the iPhone 8 was bound to be the most expensive iPhone ever, offering some exciting new features.
Rishi and Gagan speak about their expectations from the iPhone 8. Most of the reports have suggested that the tech giant will introduce several innovative new features in the new iPhone, including an OLED display, wireless charging and face recognition software.
However, according to a new leaked retail packaging, it seems that the upcoming smartphone will be named as iPhone X. The leaked packaging was shared by GetsGoDigital, which shows an iPhone box. It will also allow the user to make financial Apple Pay transactions.
Apple is set to unveil several new devices, including the highly anticipated iPhone 8, on September 12. Even if you wind up hating Apple's new iPhones and their price points, you should be able to score a cheaper iPhone 7 or iPhone 6s from Apple or someone else. This could mean that the company will be ditching the regular Rose Gold color variant that has been seen on so many iPhone generations in the past.
