New iPhone is coming!

Before that, some people still hesitate to buy the iPhone 7s or wait for the 8.

Now they don’t need to struggle anymore, ’cause Apple just skips the iPhone 7s and jumps straightly to the iPhone 8.

Never follow the rules, well, it’s Apple.

It’s been a decade since the release of the first version of the iconic handset.

What surprises can we expect from iPhone 8?

I believe you are excited as I am.

Till now, the Apple launch event was over.

TiToday, let’s review the iPhone rumors and see what the real iPhone looks like.

Part 1. iPhone 8 rumors collection

Rumors are swirling over the new features of the new iPhone 8 before the launch.

So what have we predicted? Let’s review those rumors!

Rumors 1. What will iPhone 8 be like?

Actually, there are several versions of iPhone 8 imagines, but we can’t sure which one is the real one, maybe none of them.

And the most possible one is this:

iPhone 8 imagine

Some people don’t like the leaked image of iPhone 8 for its ugly design, we all know the black and white, but what is it beside them?

Well, that is the new iPhone 8 color – Blush Gold.

Do you like it? Déjà vu?

When I see this new color, the first thing came to my mind is this:

brick color

Apple has used the usual silver, gold, and black color, but what’s the hell is the “Blush Gold”?

Noble and glamorous iPhone has always been known for the good looking. Why this color? When I see this word, a girl’s blush face comes into my mind, but when I see the dummy iPhone 8 imagine, yeah, maybe all the iPhone 8 inspirations come from the bricks, who knows?

What are your thoughts on the leaked iPhone 8 design?

To be honest, I really don’t like it!

But whatever, I bet there will be tons of people rush to Apple store and get one. And you will be one of them.

About iPhone 8 size, it is predicted that the size of iPhone 8 is roughly the same as the iPhone 7, but because iPhone 8 cancel its home button, iPhone 8 size will larger than 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone 8 screen is slightly longer than the iPhone 7 Plus screen, so you can display more web content or other information. But at the bottom of the dock except, each page still shows six rows of applications, a total of 24 icons.

Rumors 2. Features of iPhone 8

  1. A. Edge-to-edge screen

According to the report, Apple will adopt new material into the screen design and it will be an edge-to-edge display and the body will use glass instead of aluminum.

  1. B. Oled Display

What is the OLED display?

OLED screen is a “self-luminous” screen, do not need to use the backlight, the screen plasticity can be flexible, with a higher contrast, the resolution ratio is more ideal.

At the same time because the OLED material can also reduce the screen produced by the blue radiation, less damage to the eyes. Because it is solid-state structure, the drop resistance is also relatively strong, wider color gamut, the image is not easy to be distorted.

  1. C. Rear Vertical Camera

It is reported that iPhone 8 will have a new funny function that is Rear vertical camera.

The front camera and rear camera of iPhone 8 will have 3D sensing function.

The front camera is expected to use infrared for face recognition instead of Touch ID, also supports 3D self-timer function, you can shoot more three-dimensional effect of the photo.

Everything seems good!

However, have you notice the shape of the camera? If the inspiration of “Blush Gold” comes from “bricks” then the camera must come from the traffic light.

  1. D. No Home Button

Since the introduction of the first generation of iPhone in 2007, the home button is the core element of the iPhone.

Apple has not changed the design. Press the Home button, the user can return to the main screen. Double-click the Home button to open the multitasking interface. Long press the Home button, you can start Siri voice assistant.

But according to the informed sources, Apple will soon release the iPhone 8 will be eliminated Home button, instead of using the gesture to control the implementation of the Home key features, such as return to the main screen, open the multi-tasking interface.

It is reported that the bottom of the iPhone 8 screen will display a very narrow software control bar, in order to replace the Home button. The user can drag the phone up by dragging the software bar; if within the application, the same gesture will enter the multitasking interface. At this point, the user can continue to close the application up to return to the main screen.
