This change in chassis and the expected inclusion of an AMOLED display will be part of the equation for an anticipated retail price excess of $1000. Since the design changes which are speculated to go into the device will necessitate changes to internal components which will in turn require a higher price in order for Apple to maintain its margins.


Followed by the leaks regarding the fact that the iPhone will finally have a bigger battery. Also, iPhone 8 will reportedly retain the measurements similar to the now available iPhone 7. While the currently available iPhone model is fueled by a 1,960mAh battery, which in case the iPhone 8 will have about 38% more capacity when compared to of the iPhone 7.

Along with wireless charging capabilities, the Apple’s iPhone 8 will come in two different screen-sizes, 5.2-and-5.8-inches OLED display, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. In addition to that, the iPhone 8 this year will likely to continue with the dual rear camera setup found with the debut of iPhone 7 Plus.

Although Casetek, a metal chassis subsidiary of Pegatron Technology, has been aggressively sending engineering samples to Apple and establishing new production bases to prepare for Apple’s orders, the company has so far still not obtained significant orders for the next-generation iPhones.


Work for Apple in 2017 is becoming hard, as the Catcher company is not willing to confirm that it is going to be doing some and was willing to point out that its revenues during the current year will see a significant year-on-year growth.
