As most of you know the iPhone releases have become more and more disappointing as the years have gone by since the first generation launch. but in the lead up to a new iPhone release I cant help but read into all the rumors around what we might be looking at next! AND keep reading till the end to find out why you might be waiting a LONG LONG time to get your hands on the latest model.
What’s so special about the iPhone 8?
The iPhone 8 (apparently it wont be called that but I’ve never referred to my phone as its model its just a fucking phone I really don’t have time for the specifics) “hey can I have your number? I can? Great! just let me pass you my Apple iPhone 8 164gb” you can see where I’m going…
Anyway the next model is meant to be special because it will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, expectations are that apple will go BIG and leading experts are expecting some significant changes to even the core look of the phone.
Dog dick red?
I’m from Yorkshire (In the UK and no it isn’t close to, or in London) and dog dick red is what we call that basic plain red color most cars come in. Looks like the iPhone’s getting that too, on top of the usual offenders like silver, rose gold and black! (UPDATE! THE RED IPHONE CAME EARLY!) Now, I like to keep things straight to the point so here is my round up of the other shit my internetings have revealed so far:
- No more bezel. Literally just edge to edge screen. sounds nice to look at but easy to smash
- no more physical buttons (some say the home button will completely vanish others say they’re all going!)
- Dual Cameras for the fancy focus on both the standard and + variants
- larger screens on similar sized frames, with the reduction of bezel this is what you’d hope for! Not a smaller phone.
- apparently it’s going to look like the iPhone 4 did (a bit more blocky and square)
- better metals and glass, more durable! which isn’t really hard to beat there’s a lot to improve in this field currently
- and like the iPhone 4 it will have a screen on the front and a glass panel on the back
Get all that? Smashing!
no but literally, smashing. This thing is going to be a fucking crack magnet, you can butter toast, drop it and it will always land butter side down (physics bitches) but if you drop your iPhone 7 its 50/50 and if it lands on the screen, unlucky! the iPhone 8’s fancy new (old) design takes out all the guess work. It ALWAYS lands smash side down no matter how much you panic to try and catch it!
More bad news!?
I guess this depends on perspective and if you’ve read this far I imagine you’re eagerly waiting to buy your new phone but reports are also surfacing that the expected release date of September 2017 is going to be drastically delayed maybe as far as 2018, NIGHTMARE how will apple rob the fanboys and girls now!? I do doubt this news though. The sources are reliable but I just don’t know how apple could MISS the actual 10th anniversary of the iPhone. My guess is PR and attempt to stir a mass panic and get people revved up and talking about the new iPhone.
Will you be buying the next Gen Phone? and do you think it will make a September 2017 Release date? Let me know in the comments below!
