Speculative reports from BlueFin Research Partners’ John Donovan and Steve Mullane have revealed Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s latest move. Though unconfirmed, the duo says that the Cupertino giant could be jumping into the production of iPhone 8 as early as June. Assuming, the report is true, the production of the upcoming device will take place earlier than what the manufacturers expected. However, the certainty still hangs in the balance given that the BlueFin‘s source of data is not known.
Apparently, Apple is marking its tenth anniversary of iPhones. It is thus expected to bring about radical changes to its new device. Word has it that engaging in earlier production will give the company humble time to work out on any arising manufacturing issues. That would translate into potential leads of enhanced supply after the September launch of the device. There have cases of devices blowing up when charging and perhaps this is one of the many deformities that Apple is seeking to address in advance.
Leaked features of the impending device
Sources familiar with the company’s latest engagements reveal that the new iPhone will have a revamped design, which will incorporate an edge-to-edge OLED display. The presence of a glass backing will literally be a deviation from the aluminum body that has been in common use. Further reports suggest that the iPhone will be in three models of 5.8-inch, the biggest version, which will sport a “wraparound” design, a regular 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone.
The device is expected to have wireless charging even though it remains unclear whether or not Apple will include the Watch-style inductive charging. A more efficient A11 processor, advanced biometrics, camera improvements, a new Taptic engine and 3D Touch advancements have also been mentioned as possible features.
Analysts claim the “iPhone 8″ will be 300% greater than the previous generation
There has been a notable “modest decline” of older models of the iPhone. Nonetheless, analysts claim that the iPhone 8 will have a bezel-less design, which is more preference to many of Apple’s loyalists. It’s said to look like a single sheet of glass. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen how many suppliers will adore the OLED panels. Meanwhile, Apple’s stock was trading at $131.53 witnessing an increase of $1.24 or 0.95%.
