The tech enthusiasts will finally witness the #Iphone 8's launch in what is said to be #Apple’s biggest presentation ever. This year marks the smartphone line’s 10th anniversary, so the company is expected to reveal a grand event.

To recall, the original iPhone was first unveiled by the late #Steve Jobs on January 9, 2007, and was later released on June 29. Its upcoming flagship phone is said to be packed with the most innovative features and here is everything that is known so far about the much-awaited mobile phone's release.

Different variations

Apple is said to be gearing up to unveil its three flagship phones on Tuesday.

According to Metro Online, there are three different variations of iPhones the company is going to introduce. The first one is the 4.7-inch iPhone 7s; the next one is the 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus, and the last one, of course, is the 5.8-inch iPhone 8.

Although the latest smartphone seems to be bigger in size, the unit itself is described as being smaller than the 7s Plus. However, its edge-to-edge display technology makes the screen look larger than the others. There are reports that these three new units will almost have the same features, but the eighth model carries the most advanced technology. The 7s and the 7s Plus are expected to look like their predecessor, the iPhone 7 that had been introduced in September 2016.

Justifying the phone’s expensive worth

As its price is not yet confirmed, there are rumours that the iPhone 8 is the most expensive unit Apple will reveal, so far.

Allegedly, it costs more than $1,000. This might look pricey but as the multinational technology company employed the use of OLED display, which covered the phone’s surface from corner to corner, this actually costs twice as much the usual LCD display used by the current iPhones. Aside from that, it may have a huge memory upgrade that can go up to 512 GB.

Other details about the smartphone’s release

The iPhone 8’s much-awaited release is set to start at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on September 12, at Apple’s newly-built headquarters, the so-called “spaceship campus,” in Cupertino, California.

Tim Cook is expected to introduce the company’s new flagship phone at the Steve Jobs Theater and it might be streamed live. After the launch, the series of the newly-revealed smartphones may be available for pre-order starting on September 15 and might hit the market's shelves on September 22.
