Prepare to be amazed by the iPhone 8 which is coming out in 2017- Apple has proclaimed! The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were not as successful as Apple had hoped for. They were released in September 2016 among a wide range of reviews. However, iPhone 8 is coming out on the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone ever. And if we are to believe rumours, the iPhone 8 would be absolutely worth the wait.

iPhone 8 Specs

CNET has reported the latest member of iPhone family to have wireless charging. Samsung phones have already come up with that feature. Apple may soon follow suit. They started the inception of a truly wireless age by introducing AirPods headphones. 2017 may be deemed the year when the last piece of wire may be removed for once and for all. The wire we refer to is the revolutionary Lightning cable.

These reports have come from a various sources but have not been confirmed officially yet. Another news floating in the market is that iPhone 8 may have a curved body. Apple iPhone 8 may feature a curved AMOLED Display, as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities predicts. AMOLED screen is revolutionary as it is thinner, lighter, flexible, and energy friendly.

Apple has not increased its screen resolution in the past three years on any of its versions. The other flagship smartphones of Apple's competitors feature high end resolution of 2560 X 1440 pixels. Apple iPhone 8 may be upgraded to compete with these Android phones.

Not just this, your iPhone 8 may also feature facial recognition, as Apple is trying to strengthen its fingerprint (Touch ID) system. You should be prepared for iris scanning and opening your phones with selfies!

iPhone 8 has already got fans across the world excited about its expected launch. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media websites are abuzz with expectations. iPhone 7 sales have already started toppling and hence iPhone 8 needs to save company's face. Regions like Taiwan have reported reduced orders for iPhone 7 because of the dip in market demand. While the Samsung Note 7 explosions and the new Jet Black body made iPhone 7 intriguing to customers, the fad is being lost quickly.

Do you think this is Apple's comeback in the smartphone sector? Will iPhone 8 be a legit game changer?
