Apple set to unveil latest iPhone September 12

iPhone leaker Benjamin Geskin reveals all about Apple's OLED iPhone 8

With Apple, Samsung under pressure to amaze, what new smartphone features will we see later this year?

The former outlet reports that Apple plans to announce the device at the Steve Jobs Theater on the new "spaceship" campus.

Apple is planning to launch the iPhone 8, Apple Watch 3 LTE and 4K Apple TV in three weeks, according to a new report today.

"Reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also put the iPhone 8's memory at 3GB of RAM, while the larger iPhone 7s Plus is expected to remain at 3GB RAM and the smaller iPhone 7s will continue to offer 2GB RAM".

Those waiting to upgrade their iPhones can expect to see the new options on September 12.

This year Apple is expected to include facial recognition authentication technology in order to replace the Touch ID fingerprint technology. The 3D sensors can generate a "FaceID" by scanning the user's face. The rear camera will have two rear lenses that are vertically oriented.

iPhone sales, Apple's most important business, have slowed in the past two years, as the iPhone 7's design was largely the same as its predecessor.

A few sources have also suggested that Apple will launch an actual physical television set at the San Francisco conference, and that this will measure 6-inches. This means that existing products probably won't be able to fuel up the handset, a blow for anyone who already owns a Qi wireless charging pad.

Even though there are now no new phones out to buy, it hasn't stopped multiple companies from announcing new products for the forthcoming iPhone, basing their designs on the leaks and rumors to date. Expect AR to enable all sorts of new use- ases for iPhones from games to medicine to education.

Samsung - Apple's closest rival - launched its flagship Galaxy S8 this summer with the slogan, "Unbox your phone" - referring to the "box" at the edges of the screen.

Previously, it was reported that iPhone 8 will come with higher storage space than previous generation models.

Apple's top-of-the-line smartphone, which will come as a sort of tribute to the iPhone's 10-year existence, is one of the most anticipated models of the year - and proof of that are the numerous rumors and leaks it has staged.

What's looking increasingly certain is that the expensive, top-of-the-line model is going to really cost you - with American analysts predicting it could cost more than $1,000.
