iPhone 8, iPhone X expected Tuesday - Tech

Dhaka: Just days ahead of the big event scheduled for September 12, an apparent major leak has revealed a handful of intriguing new details about the trio of phones it's expected to introduce, while confirming a number of long-rumored features.

In a near replay of July's HomePod firmware leak, which sharpened our knowledge of new features like the virtual home button, a gesture-based UI and facial recognition technology, an apparent leak of the "golden master" of iOS 11 hit the internet.  

Planned or not, the advance look at iOS 11 delivered a slew of juicy new morsels, not the least of which are indications that Apple has named the new flagship the iPhone X -- possibly referring to the 10th anniversary of the historic device -- while the other two will be called the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Apparently, this year there's just too much new stuff for a conventional "S" update.

But that's not all: we've got fresh insight into the new user interface, the role of the side button and something called "Animojis."

We'll have to wait until Sept. 12, at 10 a.m. PT, for all of the official details; Apple did not respond to our inquiries. But in the interim, we've got a pretty clear view of what we think we'll see with the new phones, in addition to the Apple Watch 3 and 4K Apple TV box we expect to see. And though the big day is nearly here, there's plenty of time for more news to break. So stay tuned here to track all the new rumors in real time.
