There have been rumors about what’s coming now with the iPhone 7 later this year, but now there is confirmed news about the upcoming phone in September 2017, which will be named as iPhone8 or iPhone 7S.
The new phone will adopt all-new curved glass casing paired with a curved 5.8 inch AMOLED display, according to KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The AMOLED display is thinner and more power-efficient display as compared to the current LCD screen and has more depth in colors and clarity.
According to reports, the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone models will not switch to AMOLED display technology, which lines up with what other channels are communicating, and that displays can be made in quantities of 20 million per month at most.
Apple is planning to release two variants of its large-screen iPhone 7 Plus this year—one with a single-lens and one with a dual-lens camera. The dual-lens variant has been rumored to be marketed as the iPhone Pro and would be included with a vertical design.
One possibility is that both rumored new iPhone sizes are coming 5-inch and 5.8-inch, which would be a 0.3-inch increase from both the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus displays. Apple is also rumored to be planning a premium bezel-less design to achieve this.
Today Apple is selling iPhones in screen sizes of 4, 4.7 and 5.5 inches with the iPhone 6S Plus being the largest handset in that class. It is assumed that the suppliers of the AMOLED screen are Samsung Display, LG Display (LPL) and Japan Display.
