Among the most rumored features, iPhone 8 Dual Sim Card Slot, OLED Display, 3D scanner are some the features that have created a huge buzz in the market.
As we are moving closer to iPhone 8 release date , the rumors about the features, specifications and design of iPhone 8 getting stronger. There are several features that Analysts predicted initially and rumors continued to surface around those predictions and it looks like we will certainly be having these features incorporated in upcoming iPhone 8.
Is Apple making Dual SIM iPone 8?
iPhone 8 Dual Sim Card feature is something that people have been waiting for a very long time but the company couldn’t incorporate it till now. It looks like the customers might see this feature included this time in iPhone 8 which is scheduled for released in coming months.
The company is known for the making the best smartphone in the world and it has surprised the whole world with each and every iPhone they announced during the last 10 years. Not just the iPhone, Apple’s iPad, iWatch, iPod, iMac, Apple TV have brought revolution in technology sector. It has completely changed the life of the people.
Though, Apple is one of the early mover but one thing which surprises me is that the company still haven’t created Dual SIM iPhone yet that has given old rivals such as Samsung, HTC and new rivals such as OnePlus, Xiaomi room for growth and pull major chunk of smartphone market share.
I’m sure there will be lots of many other people like me who uses two mobile numbers and prefer Android smartphone (even though they like iPhone and can afford it) just because of Dual SIM card feature.
But hold your breath this time as the rumors about iPhone 8 Dual SIM card slots are getting stronger and if turns out to be true, I’ll be the happiest man on the earth and many other.
iPhone 8 Dual Sim Card rumors
According to BGR, one of the top technology blog which has rightly predicted several things about the company in the past believes that Apple is the only smartphone maker that hasn’t made Dual SIM iPhone.
But, this time, we could see Apple going against its will and making iPhone based on the demand of the customers. BGR anticipates that iPhone 8 double sim card feature may get incorporated.
In another rumors surfacing on tech blog IBtimes look much more solid as according to this rumors (reported by Forbes), Apple have filed patent for Dual SIM card features at United States Patent and Trademark Office and also at States intellectual Property Office at china.
It shows that Apple company is all set for the release of iPhone with Dual SIM card capability that will be convenient to the people who keep two different numbers.
IBtimes figures out that there has been decline in sales of iPhone in Asia region such as India. India could be the biggest market in the future but the people in India prefer dual sim smartphone. Mr Cook, think about it !
For us too, it makes sense to switch to Dual SIM iPhone as this is the only feature that put iPhone behind any other company’s smartphone. Today, we hardly see any company that doesn’t make DUAL SIM smartphone.

iPhone 8 Price
iPhone 8 Price is something that rumors have not been consistent about so far. There is no solid information that gives us idea about the price of iPhone.
At first the rumors suggested iPhone 8 would be priced normally (same strategy as they have used for previously launched iPhone) but later rumors about iPhone 8 being costlier than $1000 shocked the whole world. It also was said that price might go as high as the price of Macbook.
But few months later, the new rumors suggested the price of iPhone 8 wouldn’t be touching $1000 mark and it will remain well under it. Again after few months we heard news that the price might touch $1000 price tag due to costlier OLED display and 3D scanner.
There has been lots of debate going on about the pricing of iPhone 8 and since there is no much reliable source, it is becoming bit difficult to understand the pricing strategy of Apple for iPhone 8.
If the company go by normal pricing strategy, anything between $850-$900 would for 32 GB model would be ideal.
