Preliminary rumoured specifications
The end of August is that time of the year when Samsung’s done with its flagships and it’s Apple’s time to roll-out its troops. The rumour mill has spun fast on the widely expected iPhone 8 with the premium Apple flagship touted to be Apple’s biggest ever change to an iPhone since the iPhone 5s transitioned into the iPhone 6. Here’s all we know about the upcoming smartphone who’ll definitely command a launch price in excess of 140,000 rupees.
Not even the S8 can lose this much bezel
The first and foremost thing that’s almost guaranteed due to multiple case and accessory manufacturer leaks is that the iPhone 8 will be completely bezel-less; its touchscreen stretches from its upper half all the way down to the very end of the smartphone’s front panel. IP68 certified dust and waterproofing will now be an automatic feature in all Apple iPhones.
When it comes to its build, public opinion is badly divided about whether the smartphone will feature a metal back or will it revert back to the days of the iPhone 4 with a dual-glass panel design. Keep an eye out for that one.
End to end display
Being bezel-less means that the iPhone 8 will house a big screen in small dimensions; from the word we’re receiving is that the smartphone would not be featuring a vastly bigger touchscreen than what one would expect. Statistically, a 5.1 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a massive 601ppi pixel density lies atop its front panel which allows a tidy 1242p HD resolution.
This kind of resolution is probably the first of its kind and it just falls short of the 1440p resolution we’re used to seeing.
Is said to inherit the dual-primary camera from the iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 8 is said to be home to a dual 12 megapixel primary sensor with all features previously held by the iPhone 7 Plus’s primary camera. This includes phase detection autofocus, OIS and a quad-tone LED flash. The famed portrait mode is available due to the presence of a dual-primary sensor while a 7 megapixel selfie sensor also makes it way atop the front panel. We do expect Apple to make performance improvements to the two camera sensors and also add a couple of new features to them to keep up the spice.
Some notable additions to the hardware department include:
The smartphone will be powered by a similar quad-core processor to the iPhone 7 but with improved clock speed. 3 gigs of RAM will aid the processor to run things smoothly on the built-in iOS 11 while the device’s internal storage base model will no longer be a 16 or 32GB one; yes! Apple’s finally touted to make the big move and go ahead with a 64GB base plus 256/512GB models that’re sure to be huge sigh of relief for all iPhone 8 hopefuls out there.
The headphone jack is gone for good but stereo speakers remain while another feature that’s still subject to much debate is about where will Tim Cook and co. place the Touch ID or the fingerprint scanner; either it’ll be completely gone, be embedded as a virtual scanner under the lower part of the touchscreen or may be rear-mounted. Who knows!
Samsung works with the Iris Scanner and Apple’s chosen to include a facial recognition system in the iPhone 8. Wireless charging is another expected blockbuster additional feature while USB type-C and a new colour scheme (rust pink) to the already existing ones is on the horizon as well.
With great promise come big expectations. Prior to Apple’s every Keynote event, a roar of anticipation is keenly felt throughout the atmosphere as the world’s most famous tech-giant gears up to release its revolutionary devices. Come September 12th 2017 it was the turn of the iPhone 8, whose one of the three iPhones to come-out this year btw, with an expected-launch price of 80,000 rupees.
Same design but newer build materials get the iPhone 8 underway
It was previously expected that Apple would release one iPhone 8, an iPhone 7s and an iPhone 7s Plus. That hasn’t turned out to be the case as the company’s directly moved to the iPhone 8 instead of the 7s while the iPhone 8 is known as the iPhone X or iPhone ten.
Coming back to the design department, the caption finely describes what we have on our hands here. The design is the same with similar dimensions that include a 7.3mm width, 148g weight and IP67 certified dust and waterproofing. So what’s different? No more aluminum unibody design and back come the premium glass panels like the Galaxy Note 8.
A slight but seemingly important upgrade to the display
The iPhone 8 inherits a 90% similar display to its predecessor, the iPhone 7. The smartphone features a 4.7 inches LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 326ppi pixel density. Missing out on the Super AMOLED technology used in the iPhone X, the device supports a 750p resolution that Apple claims to be within Retina Display quality. The resolution might seem underpowered on paper but in reality, the display’s excellent in all aspects (except for its size) and the added true-tone capability further allows the touchscreen to adjust itself to produce better, more vivid display colours.
Same commendable primary sensor while the selfie sensor sees a big upgrade
The iPhone 8’s primary camera features a known quantity in the form of a 12 MP sensor with 2x optical zoom, OIS, phase detection autofocus and a dual-tone LED flash. Customary camera features aside, the smartphone’s camera is definitely one of the best around with an unsurprising knack for producing excellent results.
The selfie sensor, despite featuring a similar 7 MP sensor, houses 3D technology that supposedly brings the portrait mode and face detection qualities to your iPhone. Massive improvement indeed.
The biggest and most notable differences are upon us
Going by the caption, the most noticeable differences between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 are in the two device’s hardware; the iPhone 8 is a massive upgrade upon its predecessor due to the addition of a hexa-core processor, Apple A11 Bionic chipset and the iOS 11. The A11 Bionic chip is known to support heavier applications that involve machine learning, prominent graphics etc. leading to a vast increase in the smartphone’s overall speed despite the presence of 2GB RAM.
The smartphone’s base 64GB variant promises lots of internal storage while the supercharged one allows 256 gigs of storage. No headphone jack and dual stereo speakers take their rightful place atop the smartphone while two welcome additions that are sure to put a smile on your face include fast charging (promises 50% charging within 30 minutes) and Qi Wireless charging. However, battery capacity sees no improvement but a downgrade of sorts as the iPhone 8 sports a smaller 1821 mAh non removable battery. Colour schemes include Space Gray, Silver and Gold while unlike the iPhone X, the smartphone retains its front-mounted Touch iD.
iPhone 8 pros:
- Improved premium build quality is easily spot-able within some sleek dimensions
- Display quality has been further improved
- Itsy bitsy improvement in the primary camera’s performance while you’ve read about the selfie sensor in detail too
- Lag? What lag? The iPhones don’t even have that word in their dictionary
- Guaranteed 64GB of internal storage
- Fast Charging as well as the addition of wireless charging is welcome news
iPhone 8 cons:
- As always, cost comes first
- 4.7 inches is way too small for display sizes now; should’ve packed a 5.0 inches display
- The battery downgrade is inexcusable
