Apple’s iPhone 8 is about to be unveiled later this year but these incredible concept of render images and concept of the device may have revealed its ultimate design.
It’s indeed a big year for Apple to celebrate for the iPhone as the revolutionary smartphone just turned 10th birthday.
The very first flagship smartphone device from the Cupertino-based technology giant was unveiled by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs dated back in January 2007 and this big anniversary could mean that the company is planning some major overhaul.
Apple is expected to pull-out all the stops for its next generation iPhone, which will likely to be launched in September.
The Apple iPhone 8, which may actually be called the iPhone X (skipping the 7S, 8, 8S, 9, 9S), is rumored to be landing with a stunning dual-curved OLED screen display, all-glass design, improved dual-camera sensors, and the absent of physical Home Button – a first for the aforementioned smartphone.
During the Apple’s quarterly earnings call this week, CEO Tim Cook hinted speculation regarding the firm’s product roadmap for the 2018.
“I think the smartphone is still in the early innings of the game,” Cook told before the investors during the quarterly earnings call. “I think there’s lots more to do. Every year, I think it becomes more important to people’s lives, there’s more things people are doing with it.”
Now a stunning concept has started circulating over Internet giving fans a glimpse of exactly how the next generation iPhone could look like.
Designer Gabor Balough has produced a set of concept images of the next iteration iPhone that show just what Apple could be cooking. With a screen display that covers the entire front-end of the smartphone, users would get more space for apps and notifications.
Apple is thought to be planning something huge with this augmented reality and Gabor’s render images show how the camera and Siri could be used to help user get directions and discover what’s around you. He is keen to point out that these produced images are simply a concept and may never appear on the real Apple iPhone 8.
But with rumors suggesting a new overall design with a curved display and home button embedded under the screen display, Gabor might not be too far away from how it’s really going to look.
Although the Apple iPhone 8 clearly looks to be something special, it may come with a pretty expensive problem.
Last month, a reliable source told Fast Company that the Apple iPhone 8 would ship with a jaw-dropping $1,000 price tag for the base model. With all that being said, that price point would not only make it the most expensive iPhone to date – it would also make the iPhone 8 much more expensive than the impending Samsung Galaxy S8.
And with a very similar feature-set and industrial design, it remains to be seen whether fans are happy to shell-out an extra bucks for Apple’s iOS operating system and the redesign device. The next generation Apple iPhone 8 release date will fall some time in September.
