iPhone 8 will come with AirPods
Two different high profile analysts shed some interesting estimates about the expected iPhone 8, iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus this year. The analysts’ estimates are based on the supply chains they constantly follow and other hidden sources that predict market trends.
According to JP Morgan, the top-of-the-line iPhone 8 will have a side-by-side display, a dual-lens camera at the rear, improved water resistance, and even more extended speakers around the front. In addition, this phone will be offered with a pair of free AirPods wireless headphones. The company will also lower priced, and iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus models targeting customers looking for products at lower price points.
These overlap with previously heard rumors, so we have a clearer picture of what the iPhone 8 will look like. However, it should be noted that JP Morgan does not have a good history of Apple related estimates. Considering the high price and the difficulties with the supply, the AirPods claim seems to have gone a little too far.
The CLSA says that Apple will place the Touch ID sensor on the iPhone 8 behind the phone because it can not fit it into the front of the screen. It was said that Samsung was also experiencing a similar strain, and for this reason the finger print sensors on the Galaxy S8 and S8 + were placed to the back. The drawings also show a dual-lens rear camera.
We have heard rumors about the presence of the Touch ID sensor in the back several times over the past few months. Apparently, although Apple is likely to raise it in September, it does not seem to be appropriate to place a sensor on the front level at a satisfactory level.
As we have already pointed out, although the analysis companies have good connections, there is no guarantee that any of their statements are right. IPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8 are expected to be introduced in September.
