June 7, 2017
Cupertino-based tech firms Apple have been the forerunner in the smartphone market for quite some time now and with the 10th anniversary of the iPhone line-up coming up in September 2017, something quite big is expected from Apple. The tech giants rolled out the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus at their launch event in September back in 2016 which garnered rather positive acclaim from the commercial market. However, tech enthusiasts did seem to spot quite a number of minor glitches with the device. The numero-uno of them was definitely the replacement of the 3.5mm headphone jack with Lightning ports. Then came the introduction of AirPods after that, a product whose repair-ability was rendered almost null, post its launch. Nevertheless, we all know Apple to be A quick learner pertaining to their device glitches and it seems that the iPhone 8 will feature as a significant improvement from all these and in itself a much superior smartphone than any other in existence.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus housed Apple’s A10 Fusion processor which was pegged to be 120 times faster than the first iPhone chipset, according to the statement by the company. The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are definitely slated to feature the same but the same cannot be said in the case of the iPhone 8. Tech enthusiasts are almost certain that the eighth generation iPhone is definitely slated to feature the A11 chipset from Apple, something rumored to be much beyond the A10 in terms of performance. However, there has been confirmation received from Apple’s part pertaining to the A11 but speculations are rife that this new fabrication process would be 50% powerful than the previous iteration. The chipset will also reportedly optimize battery performance of the devices.
With more and more companies bent on incorporating dual-lens camera setups on their devices, the iPhone 8 is definitely pegged to retain this striking feature from its predecessor. The iPhone 7 Plus featured Sony-manufactured 12MP dual-lens camera system which rolled out DSLR-like picture quality. Now, considering the fact that the iPhone 8 will feature quite a significant time after the 7 Plus, there is no doubt that features like 4K video recording and ultra-slow motion video can be expected from it.
