To call the iPhone 8 rumors cycle predictable might be the understatement of the year. Apple tries as hard as it can to keep the wraps on its unreleased iPhones, but there are simply too many people involved with the development and manufacturing of consumer electronics devices. There’s no way to plug every hole, and no company is more affected by that plain truth than Apple. Each and every year ahead of new iPhone releases, we get early details, then schematics and CAD drawings, then more details and component leaks, then dummy unit mockups, and so on. You can practically set your watch by the iPhone rumor cycle.
With August just around the corner and September a stone’s throw away, we’ve reached peak iPhone 8 rumor season. Apple’s plans have been finalised for some time now — we exclusively confirmed Apple’s final iPhone 8 design way back in May — and leaks are flowing freely. Now, thanks to all the earlier details we’ve seen, a new round of images gives us a look at what is believed to be the closest we’ve come to seeing Apple’s real iPhone 8.
Remember last week when we shared exclusive renders and an animation that showed the world what Apple’s iPhone 8 likely looks like when it’s powered on? Nodus, the same smartphone case maker that supplied us with those images, has given Forbes new set of iPhone 8 renders that are some of the best we’ve seen so far.
Despite language in the blog post like “Apple’s biggest changes reveled” and “delve deeper into Apple’s supply chain,” absolutely nothing new can be gleaned from these renders. They’re merely a visualization of the leaks and rumors we’ve seen for months now. What these renders do accomplish, however, is throwing a bit of fit and finish into the mix.
Visual idea of the new iPhone
iPhone dummy models like this one a good job of giving us a general idea of what to expect each year, but they obviously never have the refinement of a real Apple product. In these new renders, we can see what Apple’s iPhone 8 might look like as a real finished device, not some 3D model that was slapped together in a dark room in the back of a Chinese factory.
The new iPhoneX
Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, demonstrated the iPhone X on Tuesday, touting what CEO Tim Cook called “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone.” It will be $999 and will ship on Nov. 3.
As anticipated, the phone features a souped-up display and design and prominently features facial recognition technology. It has what Schiller called a “super retina” display with 2.7 million pixels, the highest resolution in pixel density ever in an iPhone. It has a 1 million-to-one contrast ratio on its 5.8-inch OLED display.
The handset, pronounced “iPhone ten,” has a glass back with pearlyfinish and comes in space gray and silver. It has 2 hours more battery life and supports wireless charging.
With no home button, the phone wakes up with a tap, and Siri can be activated with a larger side button. To unlock the phone, users can activate Face ID, which identifies users with a one-in-a-million chance of mistakes.
