It’s almost time for Apple to reveal the most awaited phone of the year, which incidentally is their 10th anniversary edition, and as rumors suggest it will be named either iPhone 8 or iPhone X.
Needless to say, there’s a buzz surrounding it in the months leading up to the launch. From that, we have filtered the most probable ones and prepared a list of the features of the new Apple iPhone we may see tomorrow.
1. Edge-to-Edge OLED Display: Hold the Screen
Apple is about to change their design for the new iPhone and introduce an edge-to-edge OLED display. It will cover the front face of the phone almost entirely.
First in the Apple family, the OLED screen is probably the most exciting feature of the new iPhone and it makes sense since it is the anniversary edition.
According to MacRumors, the new iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone 8 will come with 5.8 inch, 5.5 inch, and 4.7 inch, displays respectively.
2. Touch ID RIP, Say Hello to Facial Recognition
The new iPhones might get rid of the Home button and the Touch ID to make room for the bezel-less display. There were rumors suggesting relocation of Touch ID but according to credible sources Apple is giving that a miss too.
Instead, Apple will be including a camera on the front that will use facial recognition system, powered by a 3D imaging. According to a iOS 11 Golden Master leak that occurred, Apple is calling this feature Face ID.
3. A Rocking New A11 Processor
iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8s might get the new A11 processor, featuring six processor cores and is a very probable feature. This is, in-line with the company policy for upgrading hardware.
…I guess three cores would make it the A10X Fusion. Correction!
On the front there will be a 7-megapixel camera capable of full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) recording at 30 frames. Also, for the Face ID to work, Apple will employ a new IR camera.
6. Face ID: Faces for Unlocking and more
Face ID will not just be for unlocking but for Apple Pay and a new iteration called Animojis. With Touch ID gone, Apple Pay will now use Face ID to confirm transactions. This does pose a challenge for Apple since it took them a few years to integrate Apple Pay with banking systems.
