Top Questions Apple Will Face At Sept. 12 iPhone Event

But Apple is not likely to give the lens a massive boost in resolution this year. Both are expected to come with new processors and wireless charging. The Journal appears to be the first news outlet to report that a fingerprint scanner won't be included. It is also said that with the face recognition technology, users will be able to unlock the phone. Unlike the OLED displays made by Samsung, those produced in Vietnam by an affiliate of Samsung Electronics specifically for the iPhone 8 have the touch panel outside the screen. Sometimes it's confined to new colors, and sometimes it just means constraints during the first launch weeks.

As we mentioned earlier this week we are expecting the iPhone 8 release date to be Friday the 22nd of September. That said, most of you will benefit from waiting a few more days before picking up a new iPhone at Apple, your carrier, or your favorite retailer.

The iPhone 7 with 32GB - the cheapest onel starts at $649 while the most expensive iPhone 7 jet black with 256GB sells for $849.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be powered by the A11 system-on-chip (SoC), which is reportedly based on a 10nm process that was built by Apple's long-standing partner, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Aside from the "OLED iPhone", Apple is forecast to launch two other models on the same day.

The device will also have wireless charging capabilities which are said to be faster than those now available.

US defense chief threatens 'massive military response' if North Korea attacks
Pyongyang's test Sunday of what is thought to be its most powerful nuclear weapon doesn't change that fact, experts say. North Korea "has ignored the global community's widespread opposition, again carrying out a nuclear test".

The screen is also widely expected to be curved at the edges, like on Samsung's flagship S8 handset, according to previous analyst reports.

Whether that will be called the iPhone 8 is unclear, as is the price tag, which is rumored to retail for $1000.

With a new manufacturer comes rumours of an upgraded camera for 2018's iPhone, which will take the megapixel count beyond the 12MP found in the cameras on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Per a recent research note from noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with KGI Securities (via AppleInsider), one component that's adding significantly to the costs of producing the premium iPhone is its OLED display, sourced from Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF).
