The long waited iPhone 8 is making a lot of headlines in the smartphone industry.Recetly there have been many rumours regarding the release date of iPhone 8.Apple inc is holding on iPhone 8 release based on some circumstances, of which I believe is for good user experience. iPhone 8 as it stands now have caught the whole world in glimpse.I hereby present to you what you should expect from iPhone 8.
Apple has yet to announce any iPhone 8 features, but it does have official documentation that proves the company’s growing interest in mobile devices that could support more than one SIM card. And make no mistake, the iPhone would be at the top of the list of Apple products that could use such functionality. The Apple Watch might also be included on that list.
If Apple is feeling particularly nostalgic, it may opt for June 29 – the same day the first iPhone was released.However, others claims that Apple will announce its new phones in the autumn, as usual, and begin selling them soon afterwards, and even BlueFin notes that it’s not clear whether kicking off production early will translate to an earlier release date.That means we’re more likely to see Apple to unveil its new handset on either the week of September 4 or September 11.

CNBC recently released a report saying “A user may be able to unlock the device by looking at it, for example. Kuo also believes the 3-D sensor might enable some sort of 3-D selfie functionality or support for augmented reality, the latter of which Tim Cook has identified as a major area of interest for Apple.
Unfortunately, the advanced components may ultimately mean that consumers won’t be able to buy the iPhone 8 right away. While we expect Apple to unveil the device in September, Drexel Hamilton’s White suggested delays acquiring the new components may push the launch back a tad.
“Our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3-D sensing technology but still in time for the December holidays,” White said in an April 7 note. The standard 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones are expected to go on sale in September, however.
While there was some speculation that Apple’s iPhone 8 might cost as much as $1,000 — certainly giving some folks some early sticker shock — UBS analyst Steven Milunovich doesn’t think it’ll cost that much. In a recent note, Milunovich said the iPhone 8 with 64GB of storage and a new OLED panel is likely to cost around $870, in an effort to price closer to Samsung’s $720 Galaxy S8.
We still have five months to go for the expected unveiling of the iPhone 8,so please keep in mind that Apple can change a lot of features. Remember that Samsung Galaxy S8 is also in the shadows. Is Apple watching Samsung S8?
