Apple’s 10th-anniversary edition- iPhone 8 to ditch all physical buttons and cost more than $1,000

We are expecting an ultimate iPhone on Apple’s 10th-anniversary that will probably be called the iPhone 8 but as per some rumors, it will be called iPhone-X for cooler sounding. According to a source with knowledge of Apple’s plans, the new iPhone will be launched with price tag of $1,000 or above. We think you should not be concerned about this price tag if it is coming with 256GB internal memory and OLED display, because the current iPhone models of Apple- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are priced at $649 and $769 respectively.

According to the report, Apple is planning to introduce three new iPhone models in 2017 in the celebration of Apple’s 10th anniversary. One model will have OLED display and other two models use the TFT-LCD technology. Likely the new iPhone will also get a memory upgrade from the current iPhone 7 variants. The new iPhone variants will be featured with a 5.8-inch display and a revamped design. It is also expected that each model will have dual-lens cameras, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus.

Fast Company says-

The new phone will look something like a smooth black monolith, with few visual interruptions.

As rumored, Apple will not use aluminum in upcoming iPhones, the new models will likely be made of forged stainless steel and back of the iPhone 8 will be expected to be made of glass rather than metal because the stainless steel material is more prone to scratching than harder glass.

Reportedly, Apple is also planning to remove the physical button from the upcoming iPhones. The company is working to remove the physical Home button and relocating it underneath the display surface. It will be a touch button and you don’t need to press it. The technology is still “evolving” but that Apple is likely pushing hard to get the new Home button into the upcoming iPhone 8. I hope, it will be the most feature-rich iPhone ever.

The iPhone 8 or the iPhone X is expected to have a far bigger battery than the current iPhone 7 line, but its exact size remains unclear. As per prior experience, Apple can change the features and specs in an upcoming phone at any time, even late in the production cycle, therefore some features and specifications could vary before the launch.
