Apple has sent out invitations for its next iPhone event.
The so-called iPhone 8 will be announced September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple’s new headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Here’s a look at the invitation:
This year’s iPhone will mark the product’s 10th anniversary, and most Apple watchers are expecting the company to make a big deal out of the event. It’ll also be the first time Apple will publicly show off its new Apple Park headquarters.
Apple is rumored to be working on three new iPhone models this year, with two expected to be minor updates to the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. They’re thought to look mostly the same as the previous models but with performance improvements.
The iPhone 8 will be the real star. It’s said to sport a new design with a screen that covers most of the front, except for a “notch” at the top for the front-facing camera and other sensors.
Numerous leaks suggest it’ll look something like this:
- Martin Hajek
Other rumored features include:
- A “3D” camera that can unlock the device using facial recognition. No more home button and Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Wireless charging. An OLED screen, which displays better colors with greater power efficiency. An improved dual-lens camera system, similar to the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. A $999 price tag, according to Brian X. Chen of The New York Times.
