Apple’s next–generation iPhone 8 will launch alongside two iPhone 7s models, as the company looks to mix up its offering in 2017.
That’s according to a rumour emerging in China. A Weibo user known for leaking Apple details claims to have seen the company’s iPhone roadmap for 2017.
The three models are codenamed D20, D21 and D22. D20 and D21 are set to be dubbed the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, offering minor changes to the existing iPhone 7 lineup.
D22, however, will be the much–anticipated iPhone 8, set to feature an all–glass frame, curved display, wireless charging smarts and 3D dual lens camera. It’s believed Apple engineers are calling this device its ‘Ferrari’.
This latest rumour tallies with previous stories suggesting Apple is working on three new iPhones for 2017. It’s the first time, though, that we’ve heard about Apple retaining the iPhone 7’s design.
The same Weibo user says that Apple may slash the price of the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in order to entice new users and make its iPhone 8 stand out.
The new iPhones are not due to launch until late next year.
