Perhaps the most highly-awaited and anticipated smartphone of 2017 is the impending iPhone 8, which will be the tenth-anniversary edition of the iPhone line. Apple has reportedly gone all out in designing and creating this device, which will leave behind the old layout of the iPhones and will instead revolutionize the much-loved handsets into modern day handsets.

With incredibly thin bezels and absence of the physical Home Button, iPhone enthusiasts are really excited to get their hands on the impending smartphone. Other features of the handset which have been rumored include an OLED display with better aspect ratios, 3D Facial Recognition Technology, and iris scanner.

However, there have been some doubts regarding when the iPhone 8 would be unveiled to the fans across the world.

iPhone 8 possible launch date

Upon release, the iPhone 8 is expected to take the smartphone market by storm. It is expected to have such an effect that Samsung, Apple’s greatest competitor when it comes to smartphones, decided to move up the launch of its Galaxy Note 8 to August 23 in order to stand a better chance at selling the phablet. iPhones are usually launched in September each year and this year is going to be no different.

After careful analysis and speculation, it can be stated that the iPhone 8 will most likely be unveiled by either September 5 or September 6. This is a couple of days earlier than previous years’ but these two dates are the most likely for the launch of the iPhone 8 as well as the refreshed iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

The release date for the flagship device may be sometime after September 22.

However, it must be kept in mind that these dates are just predictions and Apple’s plans may not match with these assertions. So, fans are advised to take these with a grain of salt at the moment. These dates are based on the history of iPhone releases in the past and also on the large array of leaks and rumors regarding the iPhone 8.

iPhone 8 rumored specs

The device will feature a 5.8-inch OLED display with better aspect ratios due to the larger screen size. The body of the handset will be similar in size to the iPhone 7 Plus, but the screen size would be bigger due to the absence of any bezels in the upcoming device. The handset is expected to be powered by Apple’s A11 chipset.

It is also expected to be the first iPhone to feature dual camera sensors on the back along with a FaceTime camera on the front. This front camera will be equipped with the latest 3D facial recognition technology.
