Apple iPhone X specifications: While there are still some doubts hovering over the name of the new iPhone. However, most reports have indicated that the latest device will be called the iPhone X, where the X is the Roman numeral which indicates the number 10. Recently an iOS developer Steve Troughton-Smith found the reference to the name in the iOS 11 software. Others reports have indicated that the iPhone X will be a totally bezel less smartphone. The phone will come with a glass body (front and back), steel frame on the side and a 5.8-inch OLED bezel-less display. Apple will reportedly remove the popular HOME button from the front. Instead of a touchID, the iPhone X may get a face recognition technology. Additionally, leaked pictures have suggested that this time the iPhone may see vertical dual rear cameras unlike the horizontal ones on the iPhone 7 Plus. When it comes to the storage, the iPhone X will come in 3 models, 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. In terms of price, the iPhone 7 could be priced at $1000 or even more, which in India could result in a price tag of over Rs 1 lakh.
Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus Specifications: Based on rumours, the Apple iPhone 8 will feature a 4.7-inch LCD display and the iPhone 8 Plus will come with a 5.5-inch screen. Other than that, we may see a few feature introductions on the iPhone 7 upgrades. It is unlikely, but a possibility, that Apple may get the wireless charging technology for these smartphones. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 still may not see the dual camera this time too.
