With major excitement, we celebrate the long awaited launch of the new iPhone 8, which debuts today, September 12. The ‘iPhone X’, as it is now being called by sources, marks a 10th anniversary since the device first launched in January 2007 when Steve Jobs unveiled the touchscreen device. It is said to be the first of its kind with mind blowing new features, one being wireless charging technology.
According to leaked sources, the names will be iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It’s very likely that the new iPhone will sell like hot-cakes as soon as it’s available, so even if there aren’t stock issues, we recommend snapping one up early if you plan to buy one.
If you are a big fan of the Apple brand, here is what to expect from the new iPhone 8. Firstly, there would be an updated software, the IOS11. There will also be minor upgrades in comparison to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus series.
The new iPhone 8 will debut on September 12. According to sources, pre-orders for the new iPhone will be available online on Friday, September 15th while the release date, which will be available in stores for pickup, is more likely to occur on September 22 or 23.
Rumour has it that these are the features we should be expecting
- 5.8in 2.5D OLED edge-to-edge display
- New design with an ‘all-glass’ construction
- Powerful 10nm A11 chip
- Wireless charging
- A 3D-sensing camera
- Dual rear-facing camera touch ID Sensor and an “all-screen front” design
- Wireless charging support
- Face-scanning technology
- Support for LTE speeds up to 450Mbps
- Apple iPhone X will start at 64GB storage with 256GB and 512GB versions
The iPhone 8 series is probably going to retail for at least N359,500 ($1000) and could rise close to (or even beyond) N467,350 ($1300) for the top-end model, which will make it the most expensive one till date.
