Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date

In 2017, we are expecting Apple to announce its next batch of iPhones. If logic is anything to go by, and it usually is, these will most probably be the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus. Even if that's not what Apple ends up calling these, it's certain that the 4.7" and 5.5" iPhones are going to get succeeded by excellent devices.  

We should not forget that 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone lineup and Apple's been wildly rumored to have something quite exciting in the pipeline. 

What is that exciting handset that we are talking about? Well, that one's is reportedly going to be a super-premium iPhone employing a host of exciting and intriguing features. Gossip says it's rolling under the "Ferrari" model name, though we've often heard that it would end up being called the iPhone 8. It is reportedly going to shake things up by introducing a new all-glass design, a curved OLED display, a dual-camera like the iPhone 7 Plus, and most definitely multiple other features that will remain a mystery until Apple unveils that device.

We have much to talk about, so let's not lose any more time! Gather 'round the campfire and let us talk about all the saucy leaks and rumors regarding next year's iPhones!

A foreword 

Before we get to the gist of it, we should clarify what iPhones Apple's going to release in 2017. The usual disclaimer applies here, too: we are dealing with rumors and speculations here, so things may change up as time progresses. However, sound logic suggests that it will be weird for Apple not to follow its already established naming scheme. In even years, the company releases its regular phones, while during odd years we see their "s" successors get unveiled. This is what we expect for 2017 as well - the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus should be making the cut. Certain hearsay about Apple altogether skipping the "s" models for 2017 is creeping in on a regular basis, but these are pretty scarce and not enough to get us convinced. What we actually believe is that  Apple is set to release a third, super-premium device alongside the regular iPhones to mark the 10th anniversary of its smartphone lineup. This is what most of the insiders with good track records have revealed so far. Allegedly codenamed Ferrari, this device is expected by many to end up being the iPhone 8, though this will contradict with Apple's established naming scheme. Yet, it's expected to be a commemorative device, so anything is to be expected. With that out of the way, let's delve into the more serious matter!

Design

TL;DR:

  • Overhauled design with high screen-to-body ratio
  • No physical home button
  • Fingerprint scanner embbeded within the display
  • Dual camera at the back 
  • Waterproof

Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date


Bold and bezel-less

Unlike previous years, we have lots of reasons to believe that Apple will overhaul the design of its iPhones. Yes, we know that this gets speculated each and every year, but this time it's different -- while no design pictures or actual components have leaked just yet, most insiders believe that at least one of this year's iPhone will employ a predominantly glass design. Let's jump right into it!

All-glass body with a stainless steel frame

One of the analysts with the best track record around, KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo, claims that the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will indeed boast robust all-glass fronts and backs, probably somewhat similar to the iPhone 4 and 4s. Kuo's note adds that a strictly all-glass housing won't be possible due to "technological bottlenecks" and as such, will be accompanied by a metal frame. Apparently, Apple will ditch aluminum in favor of a more robust, stainless steel outer edge for the higher-end models. 

Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date

This will cost Apple more, but will give the top-tier iPhones a sturdy, premium finish. Kuo also expects both the 4.7 and 5.5-inch upcoming models to feature the glass chassis, but only the top-end version(s) will be supported by the steel frame. This is mostly similar to the way Apple differentiates the entry-level Apple Watch versions from their higher-end counterparts. If the latter rumor doesn't hold water, Apple will likely fall back to the same aluminum alloy that it used on the iPhone 7/7 Plus and iPhone 6s/6s Plus, namely the rigid and durable series 7000 aluminum alloy.

Wireless charging 

The rumored predominant use of glass in the iPhone 7s , 7s Plus', and iPhone 8  build will allow Apple to throw in wireless charging, which is a feature that prolific Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned a roughly two months ago. Here's what he had to say on that matter:

"We believe one of the reasons why new iPhones will switch from metal casing to glass casing is to support wireless charging. In order to ensure a superior performance, we believe it is most appropriate for EMS suppliers to develop and make the wireless charger because then a comprehensive test can be conducted. As Hon Hai needs to deploy most resources to develop and produce OLED iPhone, we expect Pegatron will be the exclusive supplier of the wireless charger." – -Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple analyst

Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date
An iPhone with an edge-to-edge, sloping display and minimal bezels at the top and bottom? This would have sounded like a pipe dream a couple of years ago, but it's actually one of the oft-repeated rumors for Apple's 2017 iPhone lineup, and especially that iPhone 8.

Multiple leaks and insider tips have been trying to convince us for a while now that the iPhone 8, in particular, will be "mostly display" at the front. Of course, there will be bezels, but these will be as thin as they come, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and the LG G6.

No home button

Apple's also pegged to be ditching the physical home button, which has been a staple for 9 years now. At least that's what we are hearing about the iPhone 8. In lieu of such hardware element, Cupertino will likely use its taptic engine to simulate the feel of touching a hardware button. The removal of the moving home button with the iPhone 7 is a dead giveaway for Apple's desire to altogether get rid of this hardware element. Supposedly, users will be able to 3D Touch the screen in a specific place in order to go to their home screen, which is mainly what that button's used for. They've got the technology, now they only need the courage!

What about the fingerprint sensor?

Ditching the home button would also mean that the fingerprint button will have to find a new place. Everyone's idea seems to be, all things considered, mostly the same: Apple will have to embed the fingerprint scanner in the display since a rear-positioned physical sensor is totally not a logical idea. Luckily for Apple, there's already a trove of such sensors out and about -- the Koreans from Crucial Tek were first to announce such a solution, then Qualcomm's ultrasonic one followed, and the Synaptics juggernaut wasn't far behind. One of these technologies below might be just what the doctor ordered so that the iPhone 7s. 7s Plus and iPhone 8 ditch the home key/finger scanner combo for good.

Unfortunately, we might not know about the placement of Touch ID until we get closer to September. As we've discussed before, Apple apparently has two plans for dealing with its fingerprint scanner/home button. Plan "A" calls for it to be embedded under .55 to .65 inches of the rumored 5.8-inch touch screen. If this cannot be worked out in time, Plan "B" has a physical Touch ID button located on the back of the phone. While a recently leaked iPhone 8 case revealed a circular cutout in the back that seemed to be made for a rear-facing Touch ID button, those in the know say that the cutout is for the Apple logo.

Actually, Apple already has been granted a few patents that drop a few hints about the iPhone's button- and bezel-less future.

Water-resistance is here to stay

While it's true that we've heard nothing in particular related to the water-resistance of the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, it's pretty logical to assume that this feature will be here to stay from now on. Water-resistance is undoubtedly a useful trait to have and it will hardly remain an exclusive one-off addition to the iPhone 7/7 Plus.

How will it compare against the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, among others?

Apple iPhone 8 will feature dimensions of 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm. To put these numbers in perspective, the Apple iPhone 7 measures 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm. That means that the iPhone 8 will be bigger all around than the iPhone 7. Compared to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, which weighs in at 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm, the iPhone 8 is smaller. This is true even if the latter carries a larger screen. The edge-to-edge near bezel-less look of the tenth- anniversary edition makes this possible. Benjamin Geskin, who has produced several iPhone renders this year, has created some interesting images for everyone to peruse. The first shows the Apple iPhone 8 sandwiched in between the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Again, what is interesting is how the screen of the iPhone 8 is larger than the one on the iPhone 7 Plus even though the actual phone is smaller. The second image he created shows the Apple iPhone 8 in between the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date

Just like the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, 2017's iPhone 7s and 7s Plus are expected to come with 4.7" and 5.5" displays. Both of these, similar to their long-time predecessors, are pegged to arrive with LCD displays. We are certain that these will retain the exceptional qualities of the iPhone 7/7 Plus displays, which boasted perfect colors and excellent brightness. We've heard nothing in particular about any resolution changes, so until further notice, we still think that the iPhone 7s will come with a 750 x 1334-pixel resolution, whereas its larger sibling will still utilize a full HD display panel.

Now, the rumored iPhone 8 will reportedly boast a 5.8-inch flexible OLED display. What's interesting here is that the display's active area is tipped to be either 5.1 or 5.2 inches in size, with the rest of the screen wrapping around the side frame of the phone and seamlessly fusing with the chassis of the phone.  As we mentioned before, unlike the rest of the lineup, this one will most likely be an OLED one, a first for Apple. Samsung Display has been pegged as the exclusive supplier for that one, with over 40 million OLED display panels tipped to be supplied by the contractor. Still, all the other players in the OLED industry— Sharp, JDI, AUO and LG—have also been rumored to be in the cards for supplying panels, which makes us think that Samsung might not be the exclusive contractor.

But why OLED, and why flexible? Well, simple, that's a prerequisite for the rumored curved display. LCD screens can't do yet but OLED ones can. That's because you can produce OLED displays on a plastic substrate and bend the display as much as you like, while LCDs can only be manufactured onto a glass substrate. A recent report originating from South Korea claims that the "OLED version of the new iPhone will all be curved as Apple ordered all plastic OLED - not glass - from Samsung Display. Samsung is capable of supplying a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple."

Hardware


An A11 chipset is (almost) a given

So far, we've heard a bunch of rather logical rumors regarding the hardware inside the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus arrived with quad-core 2.4GHz Apple A10 Fusion chipsets inside, and the rumor mill is quick to logically assume that the next batch of phones will arrive with A11 chips inside. Apple is consistent with their naming schemes, so we are convinced that at least this name is a given.

However, as far as it comes to the specs of said Apple A11 chipset, the rumor mill is as dry as Death Valley. A couple of months ago we heard that Taiwan-based TSMC might be the exclusive manufacturer of the system-on-chip and will be using a 10nm FinFET manufacturing process, but since then, information about the upcoming silicon muscle has been vague at best.

On a related note, the leaked benchmark results of the supposed Apple A10X chipset, expected to power Apple's next iPad Pro tablets, paint a pretty exciting picture for 2017 - this one ranked pretty high in Geekbench, tallying 4236 on the single-core test and 6588 on the multi-core test. That compares to scores of 3490 (single-core) and 5580 (multi-core) for the A10 chipset. If the Apple A11 retains that momentum, it should be an even beastlier specimen, at least in theory. We drool with anticipation!

Apple A10X at the rightmost, Apple A10 immediately to the left of it. Imagine the Apple A11's performance!

Apple A10X at the rightmost, Apple A10 immediately to the left of it. Imagine the Apple A11's performance!


RAM: same old, same old, or not?

In terms of RAM, we have heard nothing in particular, so we will assume that the regular iPhone 7s will come with 2GB of RAM, while the 7s Plus will keep things running fluently with 3 gigs of RAM. As far as the iPhone Ferrari is concerned, we can only speculate.

Storage: no changes expected

Much to everyone's approval, Apple finally ditched the lowly 16GB version of its iPhone lineup with the iPhone 7/7 Plus last year, which boast 32 gigs of storage in their basic versions, expanding to 128GB and 256GB. We don't expect anything to change next year, since Apple's unlikely to drastically change such a vital component two years in a row – in 2017, we will most likely have 32, 128, and 256GB storage options for the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. As far as the premium "Ferrari" model is concerned, we will once again go out on a limb -  we suppose it will match the rest of the lineup in terms of storage options or only ship with 256GB on board.

Camera


Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date

With last year's introduction of the dual-lens camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has essentially opened a whole new room of possibilities for its 2017 iPhone lineup. Is the dual-camera setup going to remain an exclusive feature for the larger iPhone? Is the rumored iPhone 8 scoring this one?

The rumors we've heard so far have been pretty scarce, but industry insiders have suggested that the iPhone 7s might not be getting a dual-camera setup. This feature will reportedly remain an exclusive for the iPhone 7s Plus and the more premium iPhone 8, which seems like a rather logical step for Apple to take. 

As far as technicalities go, we expect Apple to improve on the already solid basis established by the hardware inside the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus. Both have the same 12MP, f/1.8 lens main shooter with large 1.22 μm pixels that projects light straight onto a 1/3" back-illuminated sensor. The difference is that the larger iPhone boasts a secondary 12MP f/2.8 lens with a larger focal length that paves the way for lossless, 2.0x optical zoom. 

Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date

So, why employ a vertical camera setup? There's a perfectly good reason for that: Yes, that's what we're getting at. If Apple has serious plans for VR/AR, the iPhone 8 may have a vertically-oriented dual-cam setup to allow for recording stereoscopic 3D videos/images in landscape orientation. In other words, the so-called “vertical” camera setup is vertical only when you're holding your phone vertically, if that makes any sense.

In order to shoot in 3D, you need two lenses side by side that are working simultaneously to create depth, just like your eyes right now. But then, if you have two “horizontally” aligned cameras on the back your phone, you can't do 3D in landscape mode, because then the lenses wouldn't be next to each other when you turn your phone to the side. And since the only way to watch a VR video on your phone is place it in a headset and have it in front of your eyes in a horizontal orientation, it wouldn't make any sense to have the ability to shoot vertical stereoscopic videos or images.

Unique software features


So far, we've heard nothing substantial as to what novel software features and functionalities might make the cut, so our guess is as good as yours. Supposedly, we will have to wait until WWDC later this year, where the next version of iOS will most probably be unveiled. That said, Apple will hardly give us any solid hints about the next iPhones, but at least we will see what new features iOS will score. Seeing that AI and smart assistants are becoming a pretty big deal nowadays, we wouldn't be surprised if Cupertino supercharges Siri and makes it smarter and more powerful than it currently is. Rumors suggest Samsung might be prepping an AI of its own, while Google' Assistant is already doing its mojo on the Pixel and Pixel XL, so improving Siri is something that's logical to expect.

Pricing and release date  


TL;DR:

  • Apple might announce the iPhone 7s/iPhone 8 on September 17
  • Sales are pegged to kick off September 25


Benjamin Geskin‏ — a leakster that has been spinning iPhone 8 leaks like mad in the past couple of months — has tweeted out that the Apple keynote that will reveal the hot new handset will be held on the 17th of September and sales would start on the 25th of September. Of course, there's no way to confirm the validity of this information, so take it with a grain of salt. 

September releases have been the norm for the past five years and we expect this to remain unchanged this year as well. Right below, you will find a table that clearly shows the announcements and the subsequent market releases for all iPhones so far. 
 
Previous iPhone releases
ModelAnnouncedReleased
Apple iPhone1/9/20071/29/2007
Apple iPhone 3G6/9/20087/11/2008
Apple iPhone 3GS6/8/20096/19/2009

Apple iPhone 6s/6s Plus9/9/20159/25/2015
Apple iPhone 7/7 Plus9/7/20169/16/2016

Further corroborating with that rumor is the fact that Apple has allegedly posted blackout dates for Apple employees staff, between September 17 and November 4, suggesting that this would be a busy period when it will need all hands on deck. The information comes from what looks like an official Apple memo to staff, obtained by Apple enthusiast Benjamin Geskin.

"Keep in mind that these dates are subject to change as our support volume expectations fluctuate," the memo says.

As far as price goes, we expect Apple to price the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus similarly to what the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cost at launch. Here's the pricing of those two at launch.

Apple iPhone 732GB128GB256GB
Price$649$749$849

Apple iPhone 7 Plus32GB128GB256GB
Price$769$869$969

As far as the rumored and rather exciting iPhone 8 is considered, it doesn't take a genius to deduce that its premium exterior and features will likely come at a higher price. We have zero idea what Apple is going to charge for that one, but one thing is for certain - dedicated fans will likely be willing to spend as much money Apple is willing to charge for its premium iPhone.

Don't you worry a tad, PA...

Read my lips: "Apple isn't going to launch an all new iPhone in 2017"...

Apple has NEVER missed an "S" Model (At least under the command of Mr. Tim "Timmy" Cook) and I doubt this is going to change now...

So, The iPhone 7 with an "S" will likely feature a stronger hardware, perhaps Dual-Camera & 3GB of RAM on the smaller model; while the bigger "PLUS" might feature 4 Gigs of RAM... There'll be, of course, a few other things; but they'll be on the software & OS side.. But overall, I highly doubt that The iPhone "S" (Strong emphasis on The "S") will have a newer and so called "Bezel-less" design and appearance...

The Ferrari (Why not "Ducati"...?) 'might' come with an AMOLED Display and 'might' possess a different appearance but I doubt it... HIGHLY DOUBT IT... It won't happen until next year, trust me...!

Oh well,

G'Day!

Yea, it will go from 17xxMaH to 18xxMaH on the small model and from 19xxMaH to 21xxMaH on the Plus.

Considering each iPhone grew in side with each model up until these last 6 total models.

This versus the Galaxy S, which overall has gotten smaller considering the size of the S5. And even though the base S6 and S7 are smaller then the S5 overall, they have a 40% larger battery inside.

While the iPhone battery only grew by very incremental amounts.

How is it the iPhone 7 Plus only has a 19xxMaH battery, and its larger than the Galaxy S7 Edge/Note 7 which both house a battery closer to 35xxMaH?

So Lets see, Apple is simply too cheap to spend an extra 1.50 to have a battery almost double the size, for a phone that will if you are lucky last 2~3 years before you are forced to get rid of it due to terrible battery-life.

IPhone's gettign a bigger cell doesn't mean nothing. Especially since one of the next iPhone's will have an OLED display. So I am betting thr iPhone 7S Plus battery won't exceed 2150MaH.

So put your money where you mouth is.

I am betting you phone for phone. The Galaxy S8 will have a much larger gap in battery size vs what the iPhone 7S will have. Especially if the rumors are indeed fact, that the Galaxy S will be 5.7" for the base model and the other will be 6.2".

That means Samsung has room to add at least 300MaH.

After all compare -http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=7431&idPhone2=8082

The Note 5 is slightly smaller than the Note 7 overall. Yet the Note 7 battery was 500MaH larger...yet the Note 7 was literally millimeters bigger in size overall.

If I win you buy me a phone of my choice and if you win I buy a phone of your choice. Deal? of just be quiet, because you know I'm gonna be right.

Note 7 PCB -http://electronics360.globalspec.com/images/assets/713/7713/samsung_galaxy_note_7pcb_top.jpg

iPhone 7 Plus PCB -https://www.solidrop.net/photo-4/9x-brand-new-motherboard-main-logical-bare-board-for-apple-iphone-7-7plus-6s-6sp-6-6-plus-5s-5c-5-pcb-circuit-board-parts.jpg

Considering both companies use a similar PCB style, as you can see that even though Samsung packs in more parts, the borad is physically better designed and smaller allowing for a larger battery.

Also consider this fact...Samsung's battery is "physically" smaller in size overall vs the iPhone battery. Yet has more MaH and even more wattage considering the heavier load of components to power.

It most certainly will. Apple's stock has already been a roller coaster ride, and there are so many analysts downgrading Apple now. Apple has had so much success that the ignorant Apple-stans have forgotten that the company was once almost bankrupt, and needed Microsoft to throw them a lifeline.

Wouldn't keeping the body Aluminum and adding wireless charging be redundant. I can't see how proficient wireless charging would be through metal.

Unless of course they intend to reveal ( or steal) another form of Wireless charging not requiring the pad

I love how these iPhone 8 rumour articles always follow up an s8 article. It's like they don't want people to focus on the awesome sounding s8 that comes out soon but rather they should save their cash till September for another 720p iPhone.

What difference does it make? Is there a native 750 resolution? NO! It's either 720 or 768. There is nothing in between. Apple an dtheir made up resolutions from nowhere, just trying to not use industry standards.

Can you tell a different of 720 vs 750? No! SO if Apple didn't give a crap, why should you?

Stupid!

Its a overpriced 720 PoS! Get over it!

I Sheeps.. nothing will change just look back on apple history,,, they will release the so called iPhone 7s anniversary edition and the regular size and plus size versions that look exactly the same as the iphone 6
the anniversary edition will have the same colors as the original version and you will see a hardware update thats it.. as far as bezel-less and all screen phone keep dreaming apple fans iphone manufacturers had to remove the headphone jack due to limitations on size ,, so you will not see any reduction on the iphone size in the next couple of years..

They are having big problems with the performance" of the finger print scanner embedded in the screen. If its not perfect Apple wont release it. I would say ip9 might have it. Thats another 2 years abd many months to wait
