Apple has some incredible plans ahead of the iPhone 8 release in the summer of 2017. A lot has been said about how boring the iPhone 7 is in terms of design, but the phone has been recording unprecedented demand since it was unveiled.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were differentiated by more than just size, this time the latter added a dual-lens camera setup that has been making everyone crave the handset. However, like previous models, the Plus model commands a higher price. In a new report, it appears that you won’t have to pay huge amounts of money just so as to get yourself a dual camera iPhone 8.
According to renowned KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, 2017 will see two different models of the iPhone 8 come with a dual-lens camera setup. In addition, the same person says that Apple has plans to come in with three iPhone models this coming year.
Apparently, the base model of 4.7 inches will still be available, but this is the same model that will come without support for a dual-lens camera. As for the other two phones, there will be two variants of the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus where one will come with an OLED screen. The other version will share the same TFT-LCD display panel with the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone. The good side of the story is that both 5.5-inch units will carry a dual-lens camera setup.
Kuo estimates that two-thirds of 2017 iPhone 8 models will have a dual-lens camera setup and as a result, more people will be happy to buy the larger model than the smaller variant just because of the camera. This has been the case with the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Other than Kuo’s predictions, other reports have also suggested that the 2017 iPhone 8 will come with curved-glass display where both the back and front will covered in glass, but the two panels will be connected by a metallic band.
Apple should release the rumored iPhone 8 in September 2017, which is more than 9 months from now. We still have a long way to go, so be ready for more of these rumors and speculations.
