iPhone 8: Apple REVEALS crucial details

New Delhi, Sept 1: Apple is all set to launch its next generation iPhones on September 12 and sent out invitations for the event on Thursday.  To mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhones, the company is rumoured to unveil a special edition of iPhone which is commonly called iPhone 8. 

The anticipated event will be the first to take place in the Steve Jobs Theater at its "spaceship" campus in Silicon Valley. 

With a message in the invitation that read, "Let's meet at our place", Apple just provided the date, time and location. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, the company is expected to release three new devices -- iPhone 8 along with the updated versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus -- that will be called iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.

Following several leaks about Apple's controversial yet virtually bezel-less redesign, a detailed iPhone 8 dummy model confirmed that the devices would have an elongated 18.5:9 aspect ratio like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, Forbes reported.

It would also reduce bezel sizes to just 4 mm on all sides and feature a vertically aligned rear camera, the report added.

The rear dual-camera system on the iPhone 8 would protrude more than ever before.

Earlier leaks have suggested design changes in detail. They also pointed out that the 2017 device would have an all-display front with the fingerprint scanner moved to the back.

The handful of images also showed the upcoming iPhone 8 with rear-placed Touch ID placed directly below the Apple logo.

As far as the refresh of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are concerned, photos of a couple of iPhone dummy models show Apple devices with a glass backing, meaning the models shown in the pictures could have wireless charging as a feature.

Analysts have predicted that riding on the "better-than-expected iPad and iPhone sales", the upcoming flagship device iPhone 8 could make the Cupertino-based giant the first company to reach and sustain a $1 trillion market cap.

According to a report in MarketWatch, the stock momentum has added $56 billion to the company's market cap since the announcement of its third quarter results.
