iPhone 8 is one of the most awaited smartphones of the year. Apple will unveil its 10th-anniversary iPhone on September 12. The event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater. Along with iPhone X, the company will introduce two other iPhone devices, believed to be iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. These will serve as successors to last year’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The company might also launch Apple Watch 3 and a 4K TV. The device is rumored to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.

Price, pre-orders and shipping date

Tim Cook will take to the stage on 12 September and unwrap the handset.

According to Tech Radar, a source close to the matter claims that Apple may delay its launch for sale by almost a month. At the same time, many other reports refute these rumors. They suggest that the company is very much on time, and will put the iPhone X out for pre-order on September 15. The first phase will begin on September 21 in its key markets, mostly the U.S. A global roll-out will take place in the months to come. Since the very beginning, Apple experts like Ming-Chi Kuo have been stating that the handset won’t be any less costly than $999. A fifty-four percent rise is imminent, making iPhone X the most expensive smartphone offered by Apple.

Display, screen, and design

Apple is expected to bring about radical changes to its handset.

The handset will feature a 5.8-inch screen. The front panel will pack a completely bezel-less design with no physical home button. The company has also apparently opted for OLED display technology instead of LCD this time. The rear panel of iPhone X will also look dramatically different, with a vertically-placed dual camera setup.

Apple is going to select a premium glass built over aluminum. The handset will come void of the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Performance and features

Apple will use an A11-fusion chipset with iPhone X, making the device much faster. No information regarding its RAM, graphics card and clock speed is out yet. The handset’s camera is going to be its major selling point.

With two 12-megapixel sensors, its camera app will include multiple settings. These settings include different filters, design changes, and frames among other options. The iPhone X will also extend support for Augmented Reality (AR) technology. The company has even included an AR kit in IOS 11 developer beta. This has given app developers enough time to create content around the technology.
