We’re getting closer to the day many of you iPhone users look forward to all year. Apple’s unveiling of their newest iPhones. We’ll be watching everything unfold online from home so don’t expect any hands-on from us, unfortunately.
Apple’s new flagship appears to be inspired by Samsung – at first glance.
We’ve compiled everything that we know of about the new flagship iPhone, what would have been the other S-line iPhones, and other products set to arrive. It’s gonna be a big deal as this will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.
Looks Apple may be skipping numbers this time around but it makes more sense than what the previous rumors suggested. So we might get the new flagship as the iPhone 8 or the iPhone X. What we previously thought of as this year’s S-line is now the iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus – allegedly.
As far as specs on the iPhone X or iPhone 8, we’re expecting:
- 5.8inch OLED Retina Display w/ resolution of 1125 × 2436
- Stainless steel edges + glass front/back
- A11 6-core CPU + 3GB of RAM + 64GB/256GB/256GB of storage
- 3D facial recognition or Face ID
- No Home button as it will now be a Mac-like dock integrated into the iOS 11
- Dual cameras on the rear w/ AR capabilities
- Support 4K video at 60fps, as well as 1080p video at 240fps.
- Wireless charging
- USB-C Lightning cable
- Improved audio performance
- Better waterproofing up to IP68
- iOS 11
- Pricing $999 for 64GB, $1099 for the 256GB size, and $1199 for the 512GB size.
Along w/ a completely ‘redesigned’ flagship, Apple will have other announcements that day as well. The iPhone 7S & 7S Plus or the 8 & 8 Plus will have beefier internals along new glass on the rear to support wireless charging. The 3rd-generation Apple Watch will add a slight spec bump along w/ LTE support. And finally, there will be an Apple TV 4K edition w/ 4K HDR content support.
If anything else gets announced, we’ll be surprised at this point. So other than that, who’s ready to shell out over $1000 for the iPhone?
