Here comes the iPhone 8: Five things you should know

Here comes the iPhone 8: Five things you should know

Suggested names for the new top-end model don't stop with iPhone 8 - some think it's going to be called iPhone Pro, or iPhone X or iPhone 10. The camera hardware of the iPhone 8 of both front and back is said to be designed in a way that will enable the use of the phone as an augmented reality device.

Of course, it's also possible this is all a ruse, but as LetsGoDigital points out, KPN is a major telecommunication company in The Netherlands.

The iPhone Upgrade Program with the new phone might increase by a few more dollars and the iPhone 8 (7S) will definitely be a popular choice with top United States carriers. The price of an iPhone also has risen - a trend that's expected to continue with the 10th anniversary iPhone, set to be revealed on september 12 in Cupertino, Calif. The company are holding the event at the new Steve Jobs Theater at their new Apple Campus.

Apple has kept its 2017 iPhone models, including the highly anticipated iPhone 8, under wraps, and apparently, the auditorium where the devices will be unveiled also holds one big secret.

Apple will announce the next iPhone later this month, and rumors are running rampant about the high cost of the next phone. It's arguably the most exciting (rumored) iPhone in years. However, maybe all of these features are not enough to get the existing iPhone users excited.

Apple has taken to revealing new hues alongside its new handsets in recent years.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo - who has a long track record of accurate predictions of Apple products - predicts the phone will have a revolutionary 3D sensing camera for facial recognition, which will work with Apple's new augmented reality software. We also got to eventually see a Red version of the iPhone 7 later on.

Apple is likely to sell the current iPhone 7 in two data storage configurations - 64 and 256 gigabytes - and starting at $549, with the iPhone 7 Plus in the same storage sizes for $669.

When the iPhone 8 is unveiled in the upcoming september 12 Apple event, it is expected to have an overhauled form factor with a almost bezel-less OLED display, higher RAM, more powerful internal components, wireless charging, facial recognition technology, and much more.
