Everybody is aware that Apple has a highly secured R&D facility in Cupertino, but its supply chain partners in China and Japan, sadly seem to lack them and are leaking product details unabatedly. Latest scoop on Apple's 2017 series iPhones have shed light on the devices' design language and colour options.
Highly regard for its near-accurate reports on Apple, Mac Otakara citing sources in Taiwan has claimed that the Cupertino-based company will stick to regular upgrade program, meaning next year, fans will get see the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus.
The saddening thing is that Apple intends to keep the three-year old design language, seen in the iPhone 6 (2014) to the current iPhone 7 series. It will only have incremental upgrade in terms of processor speed, camera capability, increased battery life and a new red colour option in addition to gold, rose gold, silver, black (matte) and jet black (glossy ceramic).
Before anybody dismisses this report as false, there is a surprise in waiting.
Sources indicate that the iPhone 8 series is indeed under works and most probably will figure in the Tim Cook's 2017 product launch keynote speech's last-announcement feature—"But there's one more thing" –made popular by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
It is believed that iPhone 8 will come in just one variant and will be labeled as the top-end variant of the 2017's iPhone series, while the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will continue to priced like their predecessor with prices starting at $649 and $769, respectively.
Popular market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has claimed that the iPhone 8 will come with power-efficient OLED display having all glass body and wireless charging feature.
It is expected to be cost $150 to $200 more than the generic models, Forbes reported.
Year 2017 will mark the 10th year anniversary of Apple's first iPhone launch and is expected to leave no stone unturned to make the launch epic and arrest the company's declining iPhone sales.
