Here is what you need to know about the launch of iPhone 8


Apple’s iPhone 8 hasn’t been released yet, but rumors seem to come out quite frequently. It is believed that three products of this company including iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 will go on sale at this fall. However, according to a report earlier this week, the launch of Apple’s next generation may be postponed until October or November.

Lately, several reports have indicated that Apple is developing a plan, which will add 3D sensor technology to its new product, probably in combination with not only front but also back camera. It will allow facial recognition, augmented reality applications as well as other interested features. Specifically, this 3D sensor could possibly enable a number of applications such as 3D game avatars, 3D selfie shots, etc.

However, the new model is reported to be lately released – about 2 months later than expected. Explaining for this, it is supposed owning to difficulties of adding 3D sensing technology that rumored to debut on this device. Furthermore, that report said suppliers were making great efforts to accomplish the lamination process of curved OLED panels and adoption of the 3D sensing camera system.

Besides, rumors suggest that iPhone 8 will feature an OLED display with 5.15 inch of usable area while that of iPhone 7s will still be LCDs. Therefore, the other models in the new lineups of iPhone including 4.7 and 5.5 inch versions which are the same as the previous devices, should be released in September as usual, according to the report.
Apple also stated that it now has partnered with 1,000 engineers in Israel to work on augmented reality only. This is supposed to enable the connectivity for VR/AR applications together with charging. Apparently, Apple is investing a lot for iPhone 8 and this inevitably leads to the late launch.
