Apple iPhone 8 launch is still months away, but the rumours have been overflowing. Now, fresh leaks give us more design details about the iPhone 8, and there’s a probable keynote and launch date been outed too. This is probably the first time we are hearing of a date for the iPhone 8 launch, and it hints that there will be no delay in the launch of the anniversary edition iPhone.
Apple is developing a dedicated artificial intelligence chip to offload tasks like speech recognition and facial recognition on its mobile devices, According to Vishal Saini.
The chip internally known as Apple Neural Engine could help improve battery life and overall performance, the report said.
Apple Inc. is looking to include the chip in new Apple iPhone 8 and also said to have begun testing future iPhone prototypes with the chip.
Apple iPhone 8 was earlier reported to have been delayed due to yield issues of different hardware components, but now Geskin seems to suggest that things are as per schedule. He also suggests that the Touch ID will be integrated underneath the display, something that today’s case leak also seems to testify.
According to a report in MacRumors, EDN quoted sources from Apple supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), who confirmed the development at a technology convention held in Taipei.
The absence of a home button coupled with a redesigned bezel-less edge-to-edge OLED display will further boost the screen size of iPhone 8, something a lot of fans might like.
“If true, news of Apple’s on-screen fingerprint recognition solution will come as relief to watchers tracking the development of Apple’s “10th Aniversary” edition iPhone,” read the MacRumors’ report. Further, iPhone 8 could come with an adjustable screen ratio of 18:5:9 instead of the previously rumoured 16:9.
Apple Inc. is expected to announce Apple iPhone 8, along with iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in the fall. Both the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be upgraded versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Late Release Rumors
Over the past few months and weeks, we’ve been reporting on apparent delays with iPhone 8 manufacturing. So, if Geskin’s release date tweet proves to be true, it could mean Apple has solved the problems which caused the delays.
Final Thoughts On Release Date of Apple iPhone 8
As far as a September 17 announcement and a September 25 release date are concerned. We have reached out to Benjamin Geskin for clarification, however, so far have not had a response. It’s been some time since his much talked about tweet was published, and yet he has failed to elaborate.
Even confirm or deny his information’s authenticity, as such, we remain skeptical. Yes, unless Apple specifically, say’s an iPhone announcement won’t happen in September. We expect the handset to launch in that month. It’s just Geskin’s dates seem a little off the mark, and must be either confirmed or denied.
