Is iPhone X the official name for Apple's next smartphone?

Is iPhone X the official name for Apple's next smartphone?

According to a report from Dutch website iCulture indicates that iPhone 8 won't actually be the name of the anniversary model, as Apple will launch it as "iPhone X", which will be pronounced iPhone 10. Based on the blog's track record of leaking information on Apple products, we believe the Cupertino-based company is most likely to announce "iPhone X" next week.

Instead, Apple is expected to rely on infrared facial recognition as its primary biometric system for the iPhone 8, which will be capable of recognising a user, unlocking the device and authenticating payments.

Virgin Media from Ireland has just released a poster asking their customers to register if they would like to be the first to know about the upcoming device, the Apple iPhone 8.

Apple will hold a press event on September 12 to unveil its much anticipated new iPhones, which are expected to introduce a whole new design and set the tone for the next few years. Norges Bank bought a new position in shares of Apple during the fourth quarter valued at about $5,625,709,000.

September 12 was reported earlier this week by the Wall Street Journal as the likely date for the special fall event, where Apple typically unveils its newest iPhone models and other hardware upgrades. "September 12, 2017. 10 am".

"iPhone Edition" has a nice ring to it, and was initially rumored back in March. But the third is said to be a special edition model in celebration of the 10-year anniversary since the first iPhone went on sale in 2007. We'll also learn what Apple is going to call it. However, Kuo predicts the iPhone 8 will be released in limited quantities.

Being the 10th-generation iPhone, Apple has an opportunity to finally adopt a more sustainable naming scheme. Same thing with iPhone 8 Plus: an upgraded version of last year's iPhone 7 Plus.

However, the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also claimed the new iPhone will support faster charging, but fans will have to spend more money on a Lightning-to-USB-C cable and wall adapter for that feature.
