There have been a lot of rumors about Apple’s plans for 2017, but this one is by far the most interesting we’ve heard lately. It seems that the Cupertino-based manufacturer is planning to launch three new smartphones this year: the expected iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, which will basically be the upgraded variants of 2016’s models, as well as a premium, mysterious model: iPhone 8.
Apple’s anniversary model could be full of surprises
Ok, so if the two first models aren’t that interesting, since they will feature just upgraded internals, while maintaining the same design, the iPhone 8 is the subject of the craziest rumors!
We all know that 2017 is marking the 10th anniversary of Apple’s smartphone, so we won’t be surprised if Tim Cook and his team will be looking forward to shock the tech world!
It seems that this presumed iPhone 8 could feature a under-the-glass fingerprint scanner, a full display body or even a curved AMOLED display, as well as wireless charging. However, these are just presumptions, based on rumors, so there’s no guarantee that they might become reality.
But wait, we’re not done!
On the other side, we do have a couple of details about this mysterious iPhone 8, coming from Twitter-based leakster @SonnyDickson. To be more specific, it could be the first Apple-made smartphone to feature fast charging, but he also claims that the 7s and 7s Plus will also have it, according to PhoneArena.
Next, the same source claims that the iPhone 8 will also feature a “tap to wake” feature, but the trail is pretty cold, so there aren’t any exact details about how it will work.
To sum up, our recommendation is to take everything with a big pinch of salt, since we’re 9 months away from the launch and we’re absolutely convinced that more and more rumors will make the rounds online in the upcoming period.
