2017 iphone8(pro?) speculation thread
« on: April 06, 2016, 01:30:33 pm »


Let the rumors begin. the 2016 expected iphone7 isnt even here yet but rumors are strongly circulating that it will have a 'pro' model showing up as early as 2017 with a glass back and curved screen design. Dual camera lense system expected.

macrumors claims the iphone 8 will have retina scanners. anythings possible that far out i suppose.

more likely though : this septembers 7 and 7+ will be accompanied by a 6se. no word on if that will kill the 5 se though. some folks have a hardcore following for that size phone.

I'm not a fan of the smaller size myself...it's new phone time for me so I'll definitely be looking at what happens next month. So where else does a person go when thinking about a new device? Mojo-Farm, of course! Thanks taeles.

Apple's rumored to be doing this with the ipads as well. Three model iphone 8's. 4.7, 5.0, 5.5inch options dropping the 5c name for the baby model. ipad is rumored to go one name same features across the board as well next spring. All will be called 'pro' and you simply choose your screen size preference.



I know its a mockup rendering but that front surface rendered phone is... wow.

Apple will release a trio of new iPhones next year, according to a new research note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo believes Apple will launch a 4.7-inch model with a single-lens camera and LCD display, 5.5-inch model with a dual-lens camera and LCD display, and an all-new OLED model with a dual-lens camera in 2017.
We look for new 2017F iPhones to come in three models: one OLED model, and two TFT-LCD models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display. We believe the OLED and 5.5-inch TFT-LCD iPhones will feature dual-camera. Based on this prediction, our forecast of dual camera adoption rate in new 2017F iPhone models is revised up from 30-40% to 65-75%. We view this increase as favoring Largan’s sales and profit momentum as it is the exclusive supplier of wide-angle and telephoto lens. It also bodes well for Apple’s dual camera software ecosystem.
Kuo did not specify the display size for the all-new OLED model, expected to be positioned as the premium model in next year's iPhone lineup, but he previously said Apple will launch a 5.8-inch iPhone with a curved OLED display and glass casing next year. Barclays analysts also recently said Apple will release a 5-inch LCD iPhone and 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, both with curved, bezel-free designs, next year.

Japanese website Nikkei likewise said Apple will release three new glass-backed iPhones next year, including 4.7-inch, 5-inch, and 5.5-inch sizes. The report reiterated that one of those iPhones will be a premium model with a curved edge-to-edge OLED display to be sold alongside two models that have standard LCD displays. Barclays analysts said that model's screen will be extended "vertically as well as horizontally."

Latest rumor actually sounds real to me and I expect to be true.

iPhone7s / 7s+ will retain aluminum chassis and visual look of current 7 / 7+
iPhone 8 will go all glass w stainless steel chassis and will be a 'premium'(aka all options max, all features max) model expected to be in the range of 1000.00.

That there is what everyones pretty much agreeing is the iphone 8 due to all the leaked frames, shells, cases, spec patents, etc, etc. The Samsung 8note is slightly bigger. The iphone 8 is slightly smaller than a 7+ but the screen is larger. Rumored unveiling in about 2 weeks. Rumored starting price tag of just under 1000.00 for the 64gig model.

Is it just me or are phone prices (all devices but iphones in particular) getting beyond a joke?
Don't get me wrong, if I had the money I'd be out there getting every new gadget on release day cos I'm gullible like that, but really, the price tags are extortionate.
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

 Agreed I'm not sure there's enough there to justify the price the iPhone X it looks like a iPhone one with the really big screen and I'm really not a fan of the step back retro style look they went with and then add on to that the iPhone 8 itself looks like an iPhone 7 with a glass back for wireless charging and I find wireless charging completely useless for my needs. I'm thinking I may just skip this year and see what they do next year

Though the thought of using the facial software to make the panda say I want cookies was almost enough to sell me on the iPhone X LOL oh LOL
