As The Verge notes, this means the non-OLED next-gen devices will be called iPhone 8, rather than sticking with the traditional model of going to "iPhone 7S" - and it looks like the rumored $1,000 price is probably attached to the iPhone X.
It's being widely reported that the iPhone 8 will come in only two storage configurations - either 64GB and 256GB, or 128GB and 256GB - although a few pundits think Apple will offer a whopping 512GB at the top end, just like on the latest iPad Pro models.
The "X" in the iPhone's name may be a reference to this model being a special 10th anniversary edition. Some may say that the feature is not new as Microsoft had earlier introduced facial recognition feature in the Windows 10, but the iPhone X will come with a 3D Face ID technology.
Apple recently sent out invites for its September 12 event where it will announce three new iPhones and a host of upgrades to its existing products.
The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus are expected to look much like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This was first spotted by 9to5Mac, which said that they have received an advanced copy of Apple's iOS 11 GM firmware, which is officially scheduled to launch the coming week.
This is the same version that is being installed on whatever iPhone devices Apple is planning to launch, and it tells us quite a bit about what to expect.
The new iPhone 8 will bring a new Status Bar. For example, using the Face ID camera, you'll be able to create an animated image of poop emoji with your facial characteristics!
Although LetsGoDigital hasn't named the exact provider, it has stated that it is "the biggest provider of telecommunications and IT services in the Netherlands, and "adding that this company "will certainly sell the new iPhone the minute it becomes available".
Multiple reports have confirmed that the new iPhone will break the U.S. 1000 price barrier and cost Dollars 999 for the base 64GB variant.
In the most awaited event, there is expected to see new iPhones.
In addition to Portrait Lighting the new iPhone 8, or perhaps even 7s and 7s Plus, will be able to take Full HD video in fantastic 240 frames per second, and even doubles the 4K video framerate to 60 fps. The sensor will also be used for scanning a person's facial expression and converting that into animated emojis for messaging, the code shows.
As the Face ID leaks solidify, the chances of Touch ID making it into the iPhone 8 seem rather grim.
