The iPhone is a stunning mobile phone in terms of both features and performances. To put it simply, it is probably the most significant update in the iPhone lineup. While previous leaks have suggested this numerously, the latest iPhone 8 leaks are going to diminish excitements.
Mac Otakara and Royal Bank of Canada are the two chief new sources regarding this. Within this week, both the sources said that the release of iPhone 8 will be quite delayed. Mac Otakara also stated that the phone will have reduced color options and one major feature canceled.
Mac Otakara has gained praises in markets on its recent exclusives. The iPhone 8 leak by the site says that the device will apparently launch during October-November of 2018. The smartphone’s scrapping of white color option justifies recent reports on its redesign. Furthermore, the power button will not have a Touch ID, and most likely, not the display screen either.
As far as the Touch ID is concerned, its alternative is going to be Face ID, the first generation facial recognition technology. Eager fans will be expecting the substitute to be as qualitative as Touch ID under all conditions. Given that Apple is able to suffice this expectation; the phone will make Galaxy S8 a run for its money.
Analyst Amit Daryanani of Royal Bank of Canada echoed the same with Mac Otakar regarding the timeframe. The pushback of the release date would result in a pre-Christmas rush in the markets. This may lead to third party sales of iPhone 8.
Conclusive draw from the iPhone 8 Leaks
The probable market turnover due to the factors suggested by these iPhone 8 leaks may inflict price rise. This might make some users unhappy as the iPhone 8 may seem overpriced in terms of expected quality. Therefore, Apple needs to live up to high expectations for grabbing hold of the markets for the iPhone’s most significant update.
