Apple iPhones launch in a special Red edition

Share

Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus comes with a Red-back panel which is quite different from the one which is there on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (Product) Red. Now today, the company has launched these special edition iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in India as well. However, what the differentiates the standard edition and (PRODUCT) RED edition of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is the color. Countries like Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, South Korea, UK and the USA already have the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Red editions available to them. All the money that Apple receives from the sale of Red Edition phones goes towards Red, the global fund for HIV/AIDS grants. Last month Nomura's Anne Lee reduced her estimate of iPhone X calendar Q1 sales to between 8 million and 12 million.

As was pointed out in the comments, Apple News is still available only in the United States, UK, and Australia, leaving out not just the blindingly obvious Canada, but the rest of the world. For more news on smartphones, keep following TechJuice.

This source says Apple ordered the production of too many units of the iPhone X in the last calendar quarter of 2017, and is now trying to "burn off" the inventory that has piled up at its resellers.

Apple's first new iPhone of the year is going to be the second-generation iPhone SE, if all the recent reports are to be believed. And one of its clients for high-definition displays is Apple, giving watchers another view into the iPhone maker's performance.

Furthermore, the back looks familiar with the latest generation of USA iPhones as it only includes the text "iPhone" and misses out the regulatory FCC logos. This is a 6-core processor that is claimed to be 25% faster than the previous gen chipset.

Other speculated specifications include HEIF/HEVC media recording, a headphone jack, and wireless charging support, which doesn't seem unlikely since the phone will sport a glass back. And obviously, the headphone jack is still missing. It could be argued that the iPhone 5 and 5S were the pinnacle of the iPhone design with their rectangular and industrial body. It is not for sure if the smartphone will support FaceID or not.
