A second report has now confirmed that Apple will launch the iPhone 8 on September 12. Of course, this doesn’t qualify as official confirmation from Apple itself, but a report by The Wall Street Journal should certainly amount to something. The publication cited sources who had been briefed on Apple’s plans and said the company is expected to launch its three new iPhones, and a smartwatch.
The iPhone 8 is expected to have a glass design, ditching the usual metallic versions.
This is in line with earlier rumours about Apple’s plans. The company is expected to launch the iPhone 8, which will have a bezel-less OLED display. The device is expected to run on a new processor and GPU from Apple, and should sport wireless charging. The iPhone 8 is also expected to have a glass design, ditching the usual metallic versions.
However, metal should be the material of choice for the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, which are also expected alongside the 10th anniversary iPhone. The watch in question is of course a new iteration of the Apple Watch, which is said to sport SIM-card capabilities now.
While Apple hasn’t confirmed anything yet, if the company is planning a September 12 launchd date, it should be sending out invites any day now.
