Apple to debut augmented reality content on iPhone ahead of dedicated hardware

PRICE CUT Apple iPhone SE now available at a staggering low price in India

The iPhone SE 16GB variant was originally priced at Rs 39,000 before being cut to Rs 24,999, while the 64GB model was priced at Rs 44,000. Most agree that the phone will feature glass front and back panels with a stainless steel or aluminum frame, and many agree that the iPhone 8 will forego the traditional home button for a larger, possibly curved OLED display with the Touch ID sensor embedded right underneath.

Of all the rumored additions Apple is said to be bringing to the iPhone 8, few are as intriguing as augmented reality.

The translated report (via 9to5Mac) reads: "Apple's next iPhone is expected to be closer to "water drop design". The design is allegedly reminiscent of the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Apple is said to be using a three-dimensional glass material on the back of the iPhone 8 to make it more closely resemble the deeper curves on the case of the original iPhone. As cool as the original iPhone's design was, that was ten years ago. It also has a 16GB/64GB internal storage, a 2GB RAM, a 12MP iSight main camera with 1.22µ pixels, a 1.2MP front-snapper, and a 1,624mAh battery.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Milunovich pointed out that Apple CEO Tim Cook has suggested that AR will be important to the tech giant, more important than VR, and "could be as important as the iPhone". There are talks that Apple is developing long-range wireless charging that will not keep users in one spot as in the case of a Lightning cable or a dock. The smartphone will have a 5.8-inch nearly bezel less display with a function area, iris scanning, enhanced security and true wireless charging.

This promotional offer on iPhone SE which has a 4-inch screen is targeted to the users who want to use the iPhone with a compact screen. This of course never made much sense given that releasing an iPhone 8 alongside an iPhone 7s would not only cause widespread confusion, it might also stifle overall iPhone sales.
