IPhone 8: Everything you are anticipated to know

Apple has finally spilled the beans about its 10th anniversary celebrations which marks with the launch of most anticipated IPhone 8. Apple is planning to revamp the iPhone line up with new features this time.


Apple has planned a major iPhone redesign for 2017’s latest baby IPhone 8. It is expected to flaunt a glass body and edge-to-edge OLED display alongwith the Home button replacing Touch ID with a new facial recognition system. The new iPhone can be called iPhone Pro, iPhone 8, or iPhone Edition.

Expected Features

 5.8" OLED display
 Faster A11 processor
 Glass body
 Edge-to-edge display
 Facial Recognition, perhaps replacing Touch ID
 No Home button
 Wireless charging
 Three models - One OLED, two standard


According to rumors, the iPhone 8 will feature an essential redesign, with an edge-to-edge display with the top and bottom bezels where features like the front facing camera and Touch ID fingerprint sensor are housed. Rumors also suggest Touch ID will either be built into the display or eliminated entirely in favor of facial recognition technology. Either way, there will be no physical Home button on the new iPhone. Rumors suggest it will feature a 5.8-inch display with 5.15 inches of usable area, with the rest dedicated to virtual buttons, replacing the existing Home button. The display is said to be flexible plastic OLED rather than an LCD. It will feature a slightly curved 2.5D display that's similar to the predecessor’s display. Similar to iPhone 7, this new variant will be water resistant, but it may have an improved IP68 water resistance rating.

Processing Power

According to the tech sources, the iPhone 8 is expected to possess a 10-nanometer A11 chipset that will be faster and efficient. Rumors suggest that the phone could also include features like biometric facial recognition, and induction-based wireless charging that would be used for maximizing security, perhaps to replace Touch ID.



According to the rumors, iPhone 8's front-facing camera will come with advanced 3D sensing capabilities that use Prime Sense. This enables the user to find the location and depth of objects, enabling facial and IRIS recognition. Apple is expected to use a vertical rear camera for improved pictures and better AR functionality, along with a dual-camera setup for the front-facing FaceTime camera.

Launch Date

There is no official statement about the launch of iPhone 8 but Apple is fairly predictable. Considering the launch dates of previous iPhones, we can predict that the iPhone 8 will make it to the stores on either 22th September 2017 or 23rd September 2017 worldwide.

Officially all iPhones are launched in Pakistan by mid November, so you will have to wait until then to get your hands on latest iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 plus.
