There is no doubt that the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 Plus is one of the most anticipated and hyped handset to come later this year. Since this is the 10th anniversary year of the brand, it is expected to come with something never seen before. However, the device is getting delayed further owing to some production issue but it is sure to come toward the end of this year. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking forward to getting the iPhone 8 Plus.
Fingerprint under display: This is something that no one has managed to offer so far but the Cupertino-based tech giant is in the process to launch its next smartphone with the same. However, the brand seems to be facing some trouble with the same as the production is getting delayed for the same. But knowing Apple, we are certain that the next Apple device will come flaunting the display-integrated biometric sensor.
Bezel-less display: This is one of the main talking points about the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 Plus. However, it is no more a ground-breaking tech since Samsung and LG have already come up with bezel-less displays and Essential Phone has gone a step ahead. However, Apple displays have always been brilliant and we can only imagine how good it will look in its bezel-less avatar.
Dual rear camera: Apple has managed to break some records with the brilliant dual camera module on its iPhone 7 Plus and we can expect the same module on the iPhone 8 Plus. However, since this a 10th anniversary edition of the device, we can expect the brand to go all out and offer something incredibly good on the upcoming phone.
Best in class spec sheet: It is no secret that the Apple iPhone have always had the best in class performance and spec sheet. Apple is known for the best sync between the software and hardware, which results in a smooth and snappy performance. Apple iPhone 8 Plus is expected to come with the A11 processor along with the 4GB of RAM, which is the highest for any Apple product till date.
Closed app ecosystem: This is the only grievance one can have with Apple products since it does not allow them to download music and movies, which are available for free. Also, it is not possible to share the data on the phone with others through Bluetooth.
