12th September is a big day for the tech giant
Apple will host the event of the year: the official launch of the long-awaited iPhone 8 and its “siblings” – iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X series.
Apparently, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are going to be the most affordable models launched in 2017, while the iPhone X will be this very special device, specially designed to mark the tenth anniversary of the first iPhone launched by Apple.
American editor John Brandon believes these phones might comprise all the things that a user actually needs in the everyday life.
Turns out that this particular model will be equipped with an edge-to-edge screen, a brighter and cleaner OLED display, a faster processor, wireless charging, and the price is $1,000.
Why does Brandon believe that iPhone 8 might be the last smartphone that Apple will ever make?
One reason is that people will not have a good reason to make an upgrade because the new model is very fast.
It will be kind of similar to the “Honda” situation when people kept cars for decades because they did not break.
Another reason is the evolution of digital assistants: Amazon Echo, Google Home can do all the things that a smartphone can do.
Do you want to call someone? You ask Echo, do you want to find out the weather? Ask Google Home, etc. Also, the salty price can become another inconvenience, some would say.
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, believes smartphones are endangered.
He wants to give up phones, television, and tablets and wants to replace them with a pair of intelligent glasses that could be controlled by the human brain.
The glasses will work with the human brain and will project images directly onto the retina of the eye, according to an announcement from the company’s annual Facebook F8 conference.
We believe that Apple will continue to produce phones because this is a very profitable segment for the Californian company, but the number of buyers may decrease due to the eye-popping price.
