IPhone 8 plus other devices expected for September release

Posted August 30, 2017

Historically, Apple has usually released its phones for sale about 10 days after the announcement. But, as always, it doesn't announce early in case it needs to shift the date based on whether it feels it's ready. At the same event, the tech giant will show off the new iPhone 7s, the iPhone 7s Plus, and the brand new iPhone 8 we've heard so much about. Either way, iPhone 8 won't be cheap and the most likely reason for it might be the OLED display and glass design the smartphone would feature.

After the success of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple is now set to launch the iPhone 8, a report in the Wall Street Journal reported today.

These apart, there is also rumors of Apple launching the new Apple Watch 3 which would mark the re-birth of sorts for Apple's renewed ambitions in this space.

Even though iPhone users are excited about the potential new features, Android phones like Samsung's Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 and Andy Rubin's Essential Phone already have edge-to-edge screens. We expect the 10th anniversary iPhone to hit the store shelves in October. It will also have glass and metal design and will support wireless charging. iPhone 8 will have a dual-rear camera, but vertically aligned and not horizontally like iPhone 7 plus.

The phone will come with a hefty price tag, expected to be around $1,000. The newly redesigned version is expected to spur sales once again, a relief for Apple's most important device. Experts have speculated the premium version of the new iPhone may cost more than $1,000.

Another thing that Apple fans are equally curious about is: where will Apple hold the iPhone 8 launch event?

Apple's September 12 event, however, will not only be all about the iPhone, as the company is expected to unveil several other products.

According to the publication, the launch event will be held at the Steve Jobs theater which is located on Apple's campus. On the hitherto, Apple has apparently ramped up its production and is expanding from China to other manufacturing plants as well.
