The tenth anniversary iPhone would likely cost more than a $1000, according to a new report published by Fast Company. The report also claims Apple will likely roll out three new smartphones this year: the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes which are currently available, as well as a slightly larger, even more expensive 5.8-inch iPhone 8 with an edgeless OLED display, with new features.
The rumoured features of the latest addition include a giant 5.8-inch OLED display stretching across the entire front surface, a memory upgrade, forged stainless steel sides, a glass back, a touch Home button on the display (replacing the physical home button) and a larger battery.
Apple is said to be working with the company Lumentum on 3D-sensing tech in the phone, Fast Company reports. Among the various applications for this technology (as well as things like face authentication and augmented reality) could be improving the resolution of photos captured by the camera.
Even if these rumoured feature and specs are now in Apple’s plans, things could change by the time things hit production. If Apple sticks with its standard schedule, we will likely learn the official details of this phone during an announcement in the fall of 2017, so stay tuned.
