Considering the success of iPhone 7 in September, expectations are high for the next Apple smartphone variant. As early as now, speculations about iPhone 8 is already mounting.
Such fueled anticipations have been propelled by the Cupertino-based tech giant's reputation to come up with products bearing remarkable attributes. Apple easily goes out of its way to enthrall the wants of its users.
It is still too early to tell but envisioned specifications are starting to pour in. An added sensation is definitely in the air. If there is one thing worth noting about Apple's next iPhone, it will again be about its revolutionary approach.
There is an accepted perception that iPhone 8 will ditch the traditional LCD surface. In its place will be the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen.
Two outstanding factors make this display favorable. First, the screen provides higher color contrast which is necessary for anyone who values photos of utmost quality. Compared to LCD panels, the OLED enhances the image presentation angle. More than that, the response time of the screen is faster.
Although the size of the display is still unknown, there are already leaks related to its supposed development. According to Apple watcher John Gruber, iPhone 8 will have an edge-to-edge coverage which means that the entire front surface will be utilized.
Second, it consumes less energy which suggests that battery sustainability gets an extended lease.
In other specification aspects, Apple's upcoming variant can be charged wirelessly. This is definitely great news to all users since they will no longer get stuck in one place at the mercy of a charging cable. This will bring flexibility the moment the battery drains. Although the distance may be limited when charging wirelessly, at least the range to move around is reasonable.
Moreover, it is also being speculated that the technology giant will be adding fingerprint sensors on the iPhone 8's home button. To do this, touch and display driver integration (TDDI) chips need to be developed.
