Apple may still be silent about its launch in September, but we always have hot rumours to check out, and the latest one says that Apple is likely to launch a 512GB variant of iPhone 8 on September 12 (nothing official though).
A French website Mac4Ever babbled out that iPhone 8 will be launched on September 12, and says that it has confirmed the news with a French telecom company, but still don’t kill me if this isn’t true! And it is also believable because this is the time of year when Apple makes its ‘launches’, generally. However, the bigger surprise is – another website claims that iPhone 8 will be launched in three storage variants – 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. While 64 and 256 is nothing new, 512 GB variant seems to be one big chunk of storage – which will surely come with an overly added price.
It is also said that alongside iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, and iPhone 7s Plus would also be launched on September 12 and that they will be available for sale from September 22. Indians, hold on tigers, not so soon for us because these phones will be launched in India – earliest by October. The new phones will be launched marking very special 10 years to the inception of iPhone and that is why we are expecting something big – be it memory space. Some sources suggest that the price of the 512GB variant of iPhone 8 could go as high as $1200 with its radically new design.
Expecting a higher storage space is justified and believable because iPhone 8 will be sporting 4K content and new AR and 3D sensing features to play around with – and this needs unbelievable amount of storage. Other significant features of iPhone 8 include that bezel-less panel, no home button, a virtual dual cam setup with AR capabilities, a 3D sensing front and rear camera, facial recognition, wireless charging, and better waterproofing.
The claims of release date and extra storage variant may sound believable because I suggest you to take this news write-up with a pinch of salt because nothing is confirmed or official yet and these are just speculations; so let’s speculate for a moment there. Okay, that’s all.
