California: Apple will be celebrating its 10th-year-anniverasry with its iPhone smartphone flagship this year.
While the company usually launches its new smartphone by September, a J.P. Morgan analyst claims that the iPhone 8 might be launched this Monday, at Apple’s WWDC.
A report by Apple Insider quotes Rod Hall, a stock analyst at J.P. Morgan in San Francisco as saying that there is some possibility that Apple will preview the iPhone 8 at the WWDC event. The analyst cited an “expected large form factor change as well as new 3D scanning features,” as the unexpected reason for an early preview. He further added, suggesting that the firm is believed to introduce a new TV device alongside its highly-speculated ‘Siri speaker’ at the event.
However, many believe that his predictions are “baseless” and “silly.”
To recall, a rumour regarding iPhone 8’s price has been taking the rounds since the last few weeks.
It is also believed that the device is going to measure 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57mm as compared to the iPhone 7, which is much smaller. The aforementioned news hasn’t been confirmed by Apple as yet.
