Apple?s iPhone 8 may still be nine months away before it graces the store shelves across the globe. Nevertheless, that does not stop people from leaking more information about the upcoming smartphone. In fact, a new wave of photos surfaced on the internet a few days ago. The leak, coming from Chinese blogging site Weibo, further strengthens rumors of three iPhones coming next year.
The said leak shows some manufacturing documents that may pertain to the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, and 7s Plus. According to the leaker, next year?s iPhones are hidden under the code names D20, D21, and D22. These three are purportedly the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and iPhone 8, respectively.
The leaked document also highlighted Apple?s supposed plans on splitting the logic board of the iPhone in two. On the one side, the circuit board will carry the CPU and other wireless connectivity modules. Meanwhile, the other half of the logic board will support the memory and the SIM tray. The two modules will be connected by a thin flex cable.
This new setup is made to reduce the overall surface area covered by the logic board. This may mean that Apple is planning on adding more features to the iPhone 8, perhaps a larger battery.
Even with months to go, the next iPhone?is already one of the most highly anticipated phone to even come from Apple. Not only that it will be represent ten years of Apple design, it is also rumored to pack a lot of features.
One of the most hyped purported feature of the upcoming iPhone is the edge-to-edge curved OLED display. This is quite a departure from the usual flat IPS LCD displays used on the previous iPhones. Furthermore, this will be the first time in ten years that the iPhone will sport an OLED display.
Apart from the display, the one thing that will separate the iPhone 8 from the likes of iPhone 7s and 7s Plus is the processor. There is a strong chance that the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will carry and improved A10 Fusion. This version of the ARM processor will probably be called A10X Fusion. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 may carry a much improved A11 processor on its release.
