The new iPhone is likely to break all record of previous iPhone sales and is helping to restore faith in Apple’s ability to innovate but yet there is so much yet to reveal about iPhone 8 design and functionality.
Ming-Chi Kuo a well reputed Apple analyst came up with an exciting news about Apple iPhone 8. He answered to the concerns of people regarding next gen smart iPhone 8. Kuo wrote in a note that Apple iPhone 8 will be of same size as iPhone 7, but the display will be 5.15 inch functional space. Apple replaced the home button completely with the function area similar to the Touch pro in MacBook Pro line.
iPhone 8 design will be something different, yet familiar
iPhone 8 OLED will not be bezel-less. It will have an extremely thin bezel on side and top of device. It will have functional area at the bottom of the screen. However the usable screen size will be 5.15 inches. This is similar to screen size to the Samsung Glaxy S8 (screen size 5.8 inches and onscreen controls).
The use of latest “Biometic technology” which includes facial recognition and iris scanning are true contenders. Number of reports are aiming that Apple will incorporate 3D laser technology to achieve robust facial recognition system. Major issue of Touch ID has also reached end line.
Kuo claimed in a note that iPhone 8 battery life will be even better than iphone7 plus due stacked logic board design. Moreover, iPhone8 battery life is strengthened to go along with OLED display, which isa more powerful option then conventional LCD display currently embedded in all iPhone.
If Apple will be able to give great usability experience to its users then this will be the gambling point for all the smart phones. It will also break the ground of critics made by some industry analysts that Apple lacks innovation.
