This year has already seen quite a few spectacular smartphone releases, and one of them is still ahead of us: as this article is written, we’re just a few days ahead of Apple’s announcement of the 10-year anniversary iPhone, known as the iPhone 8. Despite the launch of the product is just days away, there’s really not much to know about the upcoming handset aside from the fact that it will be perfect to play a huge range of casino games and online promotions at the 7Sultans Mobile – after all, there’s no way it will have a lower-performance hardware than its predecessor. While there’s not much to know for sure about the upcoming smartphone, there are quite a few things that are rumored. Let’s see what the internet says about the iPhone 8 a few days ahead of its actual release.
While you won’t have to win a 7Sultans jackpot to be able to purchase Apple’s upcoming handset, it might prove to be the most expensive iPhone so far. According to a Goldman Sachs investors’ note said to have been obtained by Business Insider, the 128 and 256 GB versions of Apple’s upcoming flagship will set buyers back $999 and $1099 – more expensive than Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 flagship, priced at $929.99.
Rumors also speak of a potential 512GB variant of the iPhone 8, with a price tag of $1,200 or above. I guess we’ll have to wait for the keynote to know for sure.
For the first time, Apple is said to deliver its iPhones with an AMOLED screen, a lot like its Android-powered competitors, especially Samsung. AMOLED is a more advanced type of screen compared to LCD – it doesn’t rely on a backlight, with the pixels themselves lighting up instead. Compared to a traditional LCD screen, AMOLED can provide more vivid images, and in certain circumstances, it also consumes less power – which matters a lot in case of the massive screens today’s smartphones have.
Apple’s new edge-to-edge screen will be larger than anything they had before (while the bezel seems small, it does count), so the energy saved by the switch to AMOLED might be all lost to the larger screen.
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 will come with a 5.8″ OLED (probably AMOLED) screen that will cover its front edge to edge. Two further models are expected, with LCD screens, at a 4.7″ and a 5.5″ screen diagonal. Inside, it will have the new A11 System-on-a-Chip (no details are available about it at this time). It will have no home button, but it will come with facial recognition, wireless charging, and a full glass body.
