It seems that the rumors we’ve heard over the past few weeks suggesting that the of the new iPhone models will take place on Sept. 12 are reinforced by new information from somewhat more credible sources. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple will hold a presentation event on that date, and the event anticipates new products from three different categories: smartphone, smartwatch and Apple TV.
It is quite clear that Apple will announce the smartphone we currently call iPhone 8. It will address a new design with borderless display, a glass and steel construction, wireless charging, an advanced biometric authentication system, and probably a very powerful hardware inside. The price of the new handset is a very interesting topic of discussion in the utile period, as it is rumored to start from $999, $100 more than the Samsung Galaxy Note8, announced last week.
In the smartwatch chapter, unofficial information suggests that Apple is preparing Apple Watch 3, a new model that will not necessarily be very different in design but will get new capabilities. Among these, the most important is wireless connectivity through the LTE protocol, which ensures that the device is operated even without a smartphone. Thus, applications can connect to the Internet directly, without bluetooth and WiFi, and the device will be able to retrieve and initiate voice calls on its own.
Finally, Apple TV should finally make the transition to the 4K resolution. It will be able to stream content from the most popular streaming services to maximum quality, compatibility with the HDR color standard being suggested in several leaks.
In general, the Wall Street Journal does not publish such information before verifying them with reliable sources, so we can expect an official announcement at any time regarding the September 12 event.
