In a design vaguely reminiscent of the original iPhone, the iPhone 8 is set to come with 2.5D curved glass panels on the front and back sandwiched between a polished stainless steel midframe. The leaked pictures of molds were posted on the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo and first spotted by SlashLeaks. The three iPhones have been put side by side, showing all the differences between the three.
Note that these molds are not the actual iPhones.
The market already appears to have responded positively to the dual-lens camera that Apple included in the iPhone 7 Plus, so camera features and image quality are demonstrably important to prospective smartphone buyers. Now, you might expect that the Apple iPhone 8, with its rumored 5.8-inch display, would be the largest.
If you're one of the many people eagerly anticipating the release of Apple's next-gen iPhone 8, you might want to start saving up now. The molds also include cutouts for the rear camera. The iPhone 7s Plus will also have the same kind of arrangement for the dual-lens rear camera as seen on the iPhone 7 Plus past year. Earlier iPhone 8 concept pictures showed a front with an nearly completely borderless bottom.
Not to worry, we're finally starting to see reports which suggest that the pessimism surrounding the iPhone 8 release date may have been blown out of proportion.
Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus with Android 7.0 Nougat launched
The Plus variant offers the services of an 8-megapixel main camera with LED flash, as well as a 2-megapixel self-portrait shooter. Both the Android phones are in news from quite some time along with some other phones namely Moto E and Moto E plus.
According to 9to5Mac, the two holes seen near the center might not be related to any specific hardware changes. It'll also feature a virtual fingerprint sensor, though that isn't confirmed right now.
The company is expected to do away with the home button on this years iPhone, instead it will feature a home button under the display. Apple too would follow the likes if the leaks stay true. To this point, Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski provided the following component cost breakdown for the iPhone 8 last week. The third one is said to be the iPhone 8, the tenth-anniversary edition.
However, the source goes on to claim that Apple is willing to take a hit on the 3D Touch sensors, absorbing the costs rather than passing them onto consumers. LG Innotek has setup a new facility with a $238 million investment to produce the 3D sensors. The bezels around the iPhone 8 will just measure 4mm all around. Recent speculations have emerged stating that Apple would also be paying far more for the iPhone 8's OLED display and faster NAND/DRAM memory.
Certain reports claim that Apple will be introducing "true" wireless charging with the iPhone 8. In fact, not many people will be able to afford it. There's no telling what Apple's final design is, but totally removing a marquee feature is highly unlikely. Other reports are saying that OLED will raise the overall manufacturing cost with $35. This process is done to reinforce the fragile OLED display.
