Unfortunately, larger Apple iPhone 8 Plus is unlikely to see the light this year. Moreover, many experts doubt that it will be released at all ever, although not completely rule out the possibility.
At the moment, there are many arguments in favor of the fact that even out the usual Apple iPhone 8 will be postponed indefinitely for various reasons. What can we say then about more advanced Apple iPhone 8 Plus.
If you compare the iPhone 6, which was released in 2014 and the iPhone 7 of 2016, the visual difference is very little. Even the dimensions are almost the same.
Against the background of the general glut in the market of smartphones Apple found itself in the ceiling of: even taking into account the reputation of the whole “apple” of the company’s products have ceased to grow sales and profits and did start to fall. And in the plans for 2017 were listed evolutionary iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
Meanwhile, competitors began to offer one by one unusual conceptual products like Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi Mix, who began to fly like hotcakes. A little more – and the Cupertino-based company may be in progress tail.
So there was a conceptual project the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus. At the moment of the “eight” is only known from numerous leaks, however it is already clear: to be novelties. The key innovation of smartphone chips appear:
- A large frameless screen OLED, which occupies almost the entire front surface. So far, however, it is not clear exactly how the engineers of Cupertino are going to place the rest of the front elements: selfie camera, sensors and loudspeaker.
- Support rapid wireless charging. Until now, its implementation hampered fashion metal casing, which itself same, Apple launched in 2016. However iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will only metal frame body, and the back cover, under which accommodate coil for wirelessly charging, will be covered with a protective glass.
- Built-in screen is a fingerprint scanner Touch ID. It would seem that you cannot look for complex solutions and place the fingerprint sensor on the back side, as it did in the case of Samsung Galaxy S8, but Apple wants to surprise everyone.
- User identification by the iris and through the three-dimensional facial recognition.
As for the screen size and resolution, the usual iPhone 8 should receive 5.1-inch matrix with a resolution of at least Full HD, if at all unusual. But on the part of the Apple iPhone 8 Plus do not have any information.
Some experts say that the company has no plans to soon release a larger version of the iPhone 8, but only in the next year.
