New Year, New iPhone Even though we are more than a semester away from him, this is a truth that no one has to dispute. It is also hard to deny that, every day, the rumored machine related to the famished ?IPhone 8? It will win out. Today we have a few more twists on Apple's next (or next?) Smartphone, courtesy of the analyst. Timothy Arcuri from Cowen & Company in a report obtained by AppleInsider.
The main news that Arcuri brings about the rumors that we already know a sensor, combining lasers and infrared, to facial and / or gesture recognition. There is not much information about what would be the function of a technology like this, just that it would be positioned at the top of the device, near the front camera.
All these components, as well as the Touch ID (via optical technology) and all other front sensors, would be embedded behind the screen of the device which, corroborating earlier rumors, would be a curved, 5.8 inch AMOLED display. without borders. An interesting detail ventilated by Arcuri notes that although the screen occupies the entire front portion of the device, we will not have 100% of the usable / touch surface: the "active" area would be around 5.1 or 5.2 inches , smaller than what we currently have on iPhone 7 Plus. According to the analyst, this iPhone model would also gain the long-awaited wireless charging technology although it does not specify the type.
Finally, says the analyst, chorus to several other rumors previously exposed, this specific model of the iPhone would be just one in three to be presented in the second half. The other two would be updated versions of the iPhones 7 and 7 Plus, while the IPhone X (as Arcuri refers to this version for now) would be the most expensive, sophisticated and full of cutting-edge model to commemorate the ten years of Ma's first smartphone release.
With this new line, says the analyst, the announcement of the new iPhones this year would be much more attractive than the previous ones and would bring a number of new followers to Apple smartphones, as well as hordes of old users upgrading their devices.
To be? Even though this analyst's history doesn't give him credible (because almost nonexistent) walks, he can't deny that "iPhone X" is a pretty name. sexy. Let's wait and see.
