iPhone 8 Battery Life and CameraA larger battery iPhone 8 also be implemented to power features like an OLED display or new biometric features that are rumored, though, so longer battery life is not a guarantee. Apple is said to be planning to use a stacked logic board design that will support longer battery life. With the improved logic board.
iPhone 8 Battery Life
Factors like the OLED display, wireless charging, new biometric features, and camera improvements are believed to drive up the price, causing Apple to need to charge more. The 3D Touch components, for example, are said to be 150 percent higher than the 3D Touch components used in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The iPhone 8 battery life could be further improved through the use of a more energy efficient OLED panel. It will be able to offer the same battery life traditionally available in the 5.5-inch iPhone in a device the size of the 4.7-inch iPhone. An L-shaped two-cell battery pack with a capacity around 2,700 mAh could be included.
iPhone 8 Display
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that a 4.7-inch iPhone with a single camera, a 5.5-inch modelwith a dual-lens camera, and an OLED model in an unspecified size with a dual-lens camera. the dual-lens camera introduced in the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus will continue to be a feature exclusive to high-end iPhone future models will include optical image stabilization (OIS) for both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses. In the iPhone 7 Plus, only the wide-angle lens features OIS. The camera in the 2017 iPhone could also support 3D photography effects if Apple opts to use an LG camera module.
The high-end 5-inch iPhone Apple plans on introducing could adopt a new vertical dual camera arrangement instead of a horizontal dual camera system. A vertical dual camera has also been seen on alleged iPhone 8 design schematics and has been confirmed by Bloomberg, so with multiple sources pointing towards a vertical dual camera, it seems to be a likely feature for the OLED iPhone 8.
iPhone 8 Camera
The camera is rumored to include an infrared transmitting module, an infrared receiving module, and a traditional camera. With the infrared additions, the camera will be able to find the location and depth of objects placed in front of it, technology that could be used for facial and iris recognition or for future AR capabilities. It could perhaps be located under the iPhone display, technology Apple has been exploring.
For the front-facing camera of the OLED iPhone vertical rear camera could potentially result in improved photos and it could enable augmented-reality based features.Apple is said to be testing a dual-lens camera system, similar to the dual lens setup in the iPhone 7 Plus, allowing for improved front-facing images. The front-facing camera of the iPhone 8 will use a revolution system consisting of three modules that enable 3D sensing and facial recognition capabilities powered by PrimeSense technology. LG will reportedly supply 3D facial recognition modules forthe iPhone 8's front-facing camera, and Apple supplier Largan Precision has said it plans to ship lenses for 3D sensing modules in the second half of 2017, likely for Apple.
The iPhone 8 feature enhanced Siri functionality is not clear what an enhanced version of Siri would be able to do, but it could include an overall refinement to the personal assistant's ability to respond to contextual requests and other dialogue. Apple is said to be taking advantage of technology it acquired when it purchased AI startup Turi in August of 2016. It's not clear if improved Siri capabilities will be introduced in iOS 11 and available for multiple devices or tied specifically to the iPhone 8.
Apple will launch the iPhone in September as scheduled, but that it won't be available for sale until October. But the iPhone 8 could be delayed until October or November because of technical issues with the display lamination process, For the last several years, Apple has released iPhone updates in September, so we expect to see the the new lineup unveiled in September of 2017, but there have been many rumors pointing towards launch delays and supply shortages. Now reversed course and does not believe there are serious delays.
The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will be in short supply when it launches in September, but the analysts do believe a release will happen during the standard September time frame. Full stock may not be available until later in the fourth quarter, however, a rumor that Bloomberg and Ming-Chi Kuo agree with. Apple reportedly signed a two-year contract with Samsung to supply up to 92 million curved OLED panels to ramp up production ahead of the release of the iPhone 8. Earlier rumors said Apple had ordered 70 million panels, from Samsung, but upped its order to account for high demand.
Apple will allow the high-end OLED iPhone 8 to be pre-ordered starting until September, but he does not believe deliveries will start until several weeks later. It will deliver in time for the December holidays, but will be delayed due to challenges around 3D sensing technology with integrating the Touch ID fingerprint sensor underneath the glass of the iPhone 8, which could potentially lead to production delays or the relocation of the Touch ID sensor, perhaps to the back of the device.
Price of iPhone 8
Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski believes the iPhone 8 will be available in 128GB and 256GB capacities, for $999 and $1,099, respectively, which isn't too much of a stretch because the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus already sells for $969.KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the OLED iPhone will cost in excess of $1,000, the iPhone 8 could be the most expensive iPhone Apple's produced yet, with several analysts predicting prices upwards of $1,000 and labeling the device as premium an inside source that spoke to company of a premium price, predicting Apple will keep iPhone 8 pricing competitive with Samsung's most recent Galaxy S8+. He thinks Apple will sell a 64GB iPhone 8 for $850 to $900 and a higher-end 256GB model for $950 to $1,000.
The Next iPhone Future
Analysts are basically just guessing on future iPhone based on rumors of a radical redesign, but given the abundance of rumors, some from trusted sources, there could be some truth behind the predictions.
