Every few days we see new rumours or leaks emerge from China about the upcoming iPhones. Adding to those, Macrumors reports that as per reliable Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, the next iPhone 8 will have 3GB of RAM same as the iPhone 7S Plus. Although the Apple iPhone 7S may feature 2GB of RAM only. The new DRAM in use will reportedly have 10 to 15 percent faster data transfer speeds for better AR performance. This is in line with previous claims made about the RAM of the new iPhones.
Yesterday, we also saw reports about the three storage options which might be available on the next iPhones. Geekbar reported on Weibo that the iPhone 8 will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage options. The post also suggested that the 64GB and 256GB NAND storage will be made by Toshiba or Sandisk, and the 512GB storage will be made by Samsung or Hynix. It was reported that Apple might host a launch event on September 12 to launch the new iPhone 7s and 7s Plus alongside the tenth anniversary edition of the device, the iPhone 8.
We have also seen leaks and rumors suggesting that the iPhone 8 will have an OLED display and will cost more than or at least $1,000 (Rs 64,100 approx without tax). The other big feature everyone is talking about is the display. The iPhone 8 is supposed to feature and edge-to-edge display similar to Samsung’s Infinity display. It is also expected that Apple might finally implement wireless charging for its new phones.
Previous reports suggest that Apple might drop the Touch ID from the bottom of the phone to make room for the display. Moreover, the phone is supposed to have 3D facial recognition technology, similar to the Windows Hello feature on Windows 10. The leaked renders we have seen thus far point towards a new dual camera setup with the camera laid out vertically instead of horizontally.
