iPhone 8 Specs: Roundup of All the Rumors


iPhone 8 Specs

The iPhone 8 is still more than a few months away from its official unveiling but there is already a lot of hype surrounding the device. One key reason behind this is that rumors point to Apple completely redesigning the iPhone 8 and adding many new features to it.

Plenty of details and information about the iPhone 8 has already leaked, and while its official spec sheet is still unknown, key details about it are now known. So here’s what the iPhone 8 specs sheet look like based on the rumors we’ve heard so far.

Camera Front:
Revolutionary 3D selfie camera The 3D selfie camera will be used to offer iris or facial scanning on the iPhone 8
Dual Camera Setup The iPhone 8 is expected to retain its dual camera setup with OIS on both modules. The setup will also be rearranged vertically for better performance and reduce the bump at the rear
AR features Apple is rumored to integrate some AR features into the camera app of the iPhone 8
Sensors Touch ID (Embedded into the display or at the rear) If Apple has its way, the Touch ID scanner will be embedded into the display of the iPhone 8. If not, it will be located at the rear

Bluetooth 5
Battery Unknown
Fast charging support via USB-Power Delivery The next iPhone 8 charger is expected to use USB-C connector at one end, with Lightning on the other
Wireless charging It is all but certain that the iPhone 8 will feature wireless charging, it remains to be seen if the company’s implementation will work with other existing Qi wireless chargers in the market

Most of the major specs about the iPhone 8 like an OLED display, A11 Fusion chip, wireless charging are already known. What remains unknown is just how faster and better they will be than anything else in the market or Apple’s previous implementation.

The iPhone 8 is still at least five months away from its official unveiling and a lot can change by then. Apple’s supply chain vendors are still working on embedding the Touch ID sensor into the display and producing it on a mass scale. Similarly, the 3D selfie camera at the front has also posed to be a problem for Apple’s vendors. So, it remains to be seen if the rumored iPhone 8 specs that we see above will turn out to be entirely true or will Apple have to make some changes to get the handset out to the market on time.
