It is just more than a couple of months since the launch of Apple?s iPhone 7 and its bigger variant iPhone 7 Plus. Rumors are already heating up about specs of the next-gen iPhone. Reports claim that the company could use a curved display in iPhone 8.
However, Apple is unlikely to release iPhone 8 before September 2017. The company has launched current and last two generation smartphones just this?September. The company will most probably follow the pattern for the launch of its next handset.
Some reports claim that Apple will not release iPhone 8 until September 2017. However, the company could release iPhone 7s and 7s Plus in between.
iPhone 8 Display
Rumor has it that iPhone 8 will feature a bigger curved OLED display. The next iteration of iPhone could feature 5 and 5.8-inch displays in iPhone 8 and 8 Plus respectively. Apple could use a bezel less display in order to maintain the size of handset. Apple filed a patent on March 5, 2015 for a bezel less device reported MacWorld.
Apple is known for using the best camera in its smartphones. Reports claim that the upcoming handset could be even better with a feature currently available to professional video cameras only. In March last year the company got a patent for a ?digital camera with light splitter.?
Light splitter uses a cube that splits light into primary colours that is further received by three different sensors. ?This new technology will improve the picture quality especially in poor lighting conditions.

Although nothing is clear at the moment about the name and processing speed of the processor to be used in iPhone 8, it is reported that Apple could tie up with Intel for the production of a?processor for its next-gen smartphone.
?Intel is definitely the most formidable challenger for TSMC. There is no rivalry between Apple and Intel so it?s really likely that Apple could shift some orders there. The move is also in line with Washington?s policy to encourage US companies to make more products at home,? said an anonymous chip-industry executive.
These are merely rumors so far. However, more solid information will keep surfacing in the upcoming months. Stay tuned to The Bitbag for updates on the new iPhone 8.
