About some facts then, Apple is planning to release iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in 2017 instead of iPhone 8, the lineup will also come in new Red color, and the design identical to this year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus line, as per these rumors.
The report although claims the Apple’s smartphones aptly called the “iPhone 7s” and the “iPhone 7s Plus” will retain the same aluminum design as the current iPhone series, with only internal changes, including the addition of faster A11 chip.
The said phones will somewhat and surprisingly be released under the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7 Plus branding, and that too with the same aesthetic design as current-gen iPhone models mixed with a revamped set of internal specs to ensure that the hardware can compete with other modern devices that will be on offer at the same time.
The latest report is in direct contrast to a number of other reports added it is highly probable the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will come in an all-new red color alongside currently available Black, Jet Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver options. Most of which suggests that Apple plans to completely redesign the iPhone with OLED, Dual-lens Camera, next year.
If these reports are to be believed, then, this latest take on the situation means that Apple could continue with the current iPhone 7 design, but nevertheless, makes some changes to ensure that it is fit for the smartphone market. Would ultimately include Apple’s A11 processor as a direct speed and performance improvement, and of course, replacing a number of additional components alongside the SoC.
Additionally, as discussed earlier, the report if accurate also tips about Apple introducing a new red color option. Multiple reports suggest Apple plans to release three new iPhone models next year under iPhone 8 branding, including updated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models with traditional LCD displays and a larger premium variant with an OLED display on the cards wth glass casing, but reports have been conflicting on which features will be included on each model.
Points at an all-glass design, as well as bringing in a 5.8-inch device that would act as the flagship for the next year’s iPhone. It’s likely that this rumored 7s range will also have three models to choose from, if the report is accurate enough, then it looks like the larger 5.8″ iPhone could be the differentiator, with the ‘iPhone 7’ and ‘iPhone 7s Plus’ appealing to those consumers who don’t want to part with the top dollar.
It could signify Apple’s future plans to release a completely overhauled glass-backed iPhone with a curved, bezel-free OLED display and wireless charging at the high-end of its 2017 smartphone range, while then, making only incremental upgrades to its traditional 4.7/5.5-inch iPhones with LCD displays. If that’s the case, then the larger device could be the only iPhone with OLED display technology integrated, and built on top of an all-glass design that would take the iPhone to the next level.
We are still approximately 9 months away from release, there’s still time for a ton more rumors to surface on this one. Stay tuned.
