New schematics revelations about the Apple's iPhone 2017 have come out, flaunting some of its latest features. It has been rumored for some time that Apple has been working on three new iPhones to be launched this year. Two of them are believed to be dubbed the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, and the third model might be the much awaited iPhone 8.
According to Fortune, iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will not have much of a difference with their previous versions, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. However, the iPhone 8 is believed to consist of a number of new specs. The major one of them is a screen which almost covers the entire area of the device's front portion. It is also being rumored that Apple is going to come out with a glass backplate for this device, a steel spine separating it from the glass plate.
As per rumors, a shift in the dual camera layout in the upcoming device is possible. While the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have horizontal camera layout, this time around it can be vertical in the iPhone 8. In addition to that, there can be the introduction of a virtual fingerprint sensor which will be present on the screen of the device, shunning the physical home button come fingerprint scanner that used to come with the previous versions. Experts opine this is because of Apple's idea to narrow the bezels.
According to Mac Rumors, the prototype for the iPhone 8 has a probable measurement of being 149.5mm tall and 72.5mm wide, compared to the iPhone 7's 138.3mm length and 67.1mm width. However, Apple is reported to be facing issues in putting the Touch ID on the device and have not yet decided on whether to integrate it on the front portion or rear.
It is also being rumored that all the three iPhones ready to be launched this year will have the wireless charging facility. In unison with its predecessor the iPhone7, the iPhone 8 is also expected not to have a headphone jack.
The iPhone 8's circular cutout on the back is rumored to be for wireless charging, as deduced by the experts. Usual cutouts on the sides of the device are supposedly kept for the mute switch, SIM card tray, Lightning connector, speaker grille, and a probable second faux speaker grille.
