Apple’s upcoming iPhone series is nearly a year away, but the rumor mill has started to pick up pace. Since it’s the tenth anniversary of iPhone, the Cupertino giant is expected to introduce new features to their phones this year. The initial leaks revealed that three variants (with capricious displays) are in the offing. The latest speculation states that Apple has teamed up with Samsung for their next venture. Samsung will supply 5.8-inch AMOLED display for 2017 iPhone model.
2017 iPhone Rumors
The brand new 2017 iPhone model will come in three display sizes—4.7 inch, 5.5 inch and 5.8 inch. However, only the 5.8 inch model will sport the touch sensitive AMOLED display. Samsung will start manufacturing AMOLED display in minimal quantities starting from March.
As per the sources, total 60 to 70 million variants with AMOLED display will be shipped worldwide next year. Accordingly, Samsung will produce approximately 20 million units per month. As of now, there are no reports on the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone models. In all probability, they won’t switch to the OLED display yet. They might retain their TFT-LCD screen in 2017, but we can’t say the same for 2018.
Apple is rumored to replace its iPhone screens with TFT-LCD models eventually.
What do Users expect from Upcoming 2017 iPhone Models?
For now, Apple has plans to launch iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 by next year. The iPhone 8 will ditch its metal body and home button. It’ll sport a beautiful glass body with 3D touch screen and fingerprint scanning on the display screen. There are light mentions of 3D photography and an iris scanner too. But then, we’re talking about iPhone and not ultra-cool FBI gadgets, isn’t it?
Some technical analysts claim that the new variants will run on advanced wireless charging. Thus, the users don’t need to place the device near or on the charging station for it to charge.
We don’t know how much of it is true. Nevertheless, we’re confident about the AMOLED news because it was backed by noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
