Apple is releasing the iPhone 8 today. Rumor has it that the company seeks to wow users for their 10th year founding anniversary. Fans had an early taste of the device when Apple suffered a major leak to its new iPhone 8. According to some smart phones leakers, this is what iPhone 8 looks like:
What does a new iPhone look?
The latest leak suggests that the new phone, called iPhone X, costs $1,320. It will include wireless charging, facial recognition, an edge to edge display like the Samsung Edge smartphones and, for the first time, no home button. Fans anticipated that Apple would release the smart phone along with two other phones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Tim Cook is the one who will unveil the iPhone 8 at an event in California on September 12, 2017. The company invited journalists to an event at its new Apple Park headquarters at 10 am Eastern Time.
Traditionally, the devices will go on sale for a week, making it available for pre-order on September 15, 2017.
Rumors spread that the production delays could affect the release of the phone, but Apple denied it. Predicting solid sales in the coming months – above expectations and presumably driven by an iPhone launch.
Planning to break with tradition, Apple release the phones in September: the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The company traditionally releases a new design within the year followed by a slight upgrade the next year. The new iPhone X, along with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, is awaited to be much faster than the previous models and has a longer battery life.
The anticipated most expensive handset of the year comes in three colors. As the leak suggested, it will be white, black and copper or gold. The white and black is pretty much standard, but a third color is thought for the new iPhone, which is either copper or a champagne gold hue.
Reports from iPhone leaker Benajamin Geskin have also indicated the iPhone X will come in what is being called “Blush Gold,” while it is rumored to only come in three colors, dropping the pinkish “rose gold” that had come on the previous models.
