While the switch from metal to a glass back on the iPhone 8
facilitated wireless charging, some took issue with its build quality, favoring the more shatter-resistant metal of the iPhone 6S.
The dual camera will be just on the iPhone 8
Plus while the iPhone 8
will have a 12MP rear camera.
Kuo - Apple will indeed launch three iPhones in 2017: a 4.7-inch iPhone 7S and 5.5-inch iPhone 7S Plus both with LCD displays and a 5.8-inch iPhone 8
Interestingly, the aforementioned report from Economic Daily News claims that in March of 2020, Apple will roll out a dramatically upgraded version of the iPhone 8
. This phone will apparently come with what will be Apple's best chip, the A13, and even come with a baseline of 128 GB of storage.
While the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will sport the same form factor as the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8
will introduce a completely new design, complete with an advanced edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED display that will essentially take up the entire front end of the device.
Apple also introduced the iPhone 8
and iPhone 8
Plus as the direct successors to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus.
According to the report, the iPhone XR did better than the (https://www.ibtimes.com/iphone-xs-vs-iphone-x-it-worth-upgrade-2746092) iPhone X , iPhone 8
and iPhone 8
Plus in terms of sales that accounted for Android switchers.
As MacRumors points out Kuo had earlier predicted that the iPhone 8
will be available in limited colour options.
(https://9to5mac.com/2018/10/03/iphone-XS-sales/) 9To5Mac learned last month that the iPhone XS and XS Max's first-week sales easily beat out last year's sales of the iPhone 8
and 8 Plus due mainly to the delayed launch of the then-highly anticipated iPhone X.
Kuo also thinks that unlike the iPhone 8
, whose demand dropped nearly 50 percent after the holidays, the iPhone XR's demand will most likely drop 30 percent only.
If this information is accurate, then it would be the same pricing that Apple is currently charging for the iPhone 8
($699), 8 Plus ($799) and the iPhone X ($999).
Last year, the tech giant skipped the "iPhone 7S" and immediately went with the iPhone 8
