Apple iPhone 8 Specifications & Features
If reports are to be believed, this particular Apple phone is gonna take the selfie-driven technology of cameras to whole new level of perfection. It will sport an innovative front camera that features diffractive optical elements (DOE) and vertical-cavity-surface-emitting-laser (VCSEL) components coupled with an OLED display. And this is where Captain says, “English!!”.

So, to put it in layman’s language, the front camera will be playing its games in the 3rd dimension, i.e., it will be 3D-sensing and 3D-modeling-ready. The later technology of the of OLED display works without a backlight; thus, it can display deep black levels and can be thinner and lighter than a liquid crystal display (LCD). In low ambient light conditions (such as a dark room), an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD.

Another new change worth mentioning in Apple iPhone 8 is the different placement of the fingerprint sensor. When Samsung has placed the fingerprint sensor on the back of Galaxy S8, Apple has been reportedly working on to put the sensor below the display on iPhone8. A published patent by Apple said that the company has been exploring the possible placements in which it can put the sensor.
Another major change would be its plans to do away with 3.5 mm headphone jack, as was the case with iPhone7 where these were replaced by wireless AirPods. In the arena of hardware developments, the phone is supposed to be powered by more efficient and faster A11 microprocessors, manufactured by Apple’s primetime processor supplier company, Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC).
It would be available in three different variants – 5.8 inch with OLED display, 4.7 & 5.5 inch with TFT-LED display. The smallest wouldn’t have dual camera OIS tech.
Update 8/4/2017: The release would be further delayed due to technical glitches in curved OLED screens and 3D sensing displays. There would be no physical home button and bezels be made a lot thinner.
