According to all rumors, the iPhone that will arrive in 2017 will be a complete blow to the table of the mobile telephony. At the moment you can not know much about the iPhone 8 or whatever you call the terminal, but the vast majority of rumors ensure that there will be at least one model with OLED display. The downside is that there are a few rumors that also ensure that this screen will only be present on the 5.5-inch iPhone.
Again Ming-Chi Kuo, the world’s most popular Apple analyst, who has published a report that says yes, that an iPhone to be presented in 2017 will have the aforementioned OLED screen, but the bad thing is that the Famous Taiwanese analyst says that next year there will be three models of iPhone and only a special Plus model will feature this technology screen on its screen. The other two models, among which there will be another 5.5-inch Plus, will come with the TFT-LCD screens we’ve had up to the current models.
What seems more worrying is that the KGI analyst says that it would be only that special model that would have a completely new industrial design, which makes us think that Apple is planning to launch a special model for the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, and now We know that the “special” also has a special price, which usually means more expensive.
The special model that Kuo talks about could also come with a screen slightly larger than 5.8 inches. The new design would allow the iPhone 8 Plus with OLED display to have a larger screen in the same size as the TFT-LCD screen, something that would be possible thanks to the elastic capacity of the OLED screens. Explained this, it is expected that this special model has a whole shell crystal, something similar to what was the iPhone 4.
What is no longer surprising is that the dual camera, already present in the iPhone 7 Plus, will remain exclusive to the 5.5-inch models. The 4.7-inch model would be left without the advanced camera and without the OLED screen that would offer darker blacks and greater autonomy if black is the dominant color in the user interface.
If we want to continue without losing hope of having to pay much more if we want the best iPhone next year, we can remember that in late 2015 / early 2016 it was believed that the iPhone 7 would come in three versions (iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro), something Apple valued, but the Pro model was discarded because it could confuse users. The downside is that the iPhone’s tenth anniversary may be a good time to launch a third model and we’re likely to see a special model to celebrate in about 10 months.
