Along with the iPhone 5S, Apple also launched a plastic built iPhone 5C, which hasn’t gained the same popularity as other iPhones. Now in 2016, the company has launched a 4-inch iPhone SE that comes with iPhone 6S specs packed into an iPhone 5S body. While the device is still not available to the public, there are few leaks suggesting the iPhone SE shipments to reach 15 million units by the end of this year.
Now the latest report from the reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests the iPhone 7S that will be launched in 2017 to get a complete makeover. The company is said to move out from metallic body to glass because of its easy molding nature and also weighs less than the plastic and ceramic which are the alternatives considering by Apple.
The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S also came with the glass on front and back of the device, but the next years iPhone 7S is said to sport curved glass panels. It also comes with much smaller side bezels when compared to the current iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. In 2017, the company is said to increase that size to 5.8-inch and instead of normal LCD display, Apple will be bringing the OLED display that consumes less power.
Apple is said to be in talks with Samsung and LG for supplying the OLED displays. With the recent acquisitions of Emotient and Faceshift, Apple is said to bring the facial recognition technology IRIS for the next-gen iPhones to make them even more secure. The report from Apple Insider also suggests the wireless charging to be featured in iPhone 7 or next year’s iPhone 7S.
While the S models of the iPhone never seen a major change in terms of design when compared to their predecessors, somehow Apple is bringing more changes to stay ahead of the competition. Stay tuned for more updates!
