Apple to Release Two iPhone 8 Models with AMOLED Display & iPhone 7 SE in 2017

by Teja Chedalla 3

Apple will be launching iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones next month. The recent leaks also suggest the company to unveil a third device called iPhone 6 SE alongside the iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus. The circular home button will be now replaced with a capacitive button along with Touch ID. While the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) is only limited to iPhone 6S Plus last year, now in 2016, both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are said to feature OIS.

The base variant of iPhone 7 will be coming with 16GB while iPhone 7 Plus might start with 32GB of built-in storage. The Apple A10 powered iPhones will also skip the 3.5mm audio port and might come with lightning port EarPods. According to a Weibo post, few specifications of the 2017 iPhones are now confirmed. Apple will be launching iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 SE smartphones in 2017. As rumoured earlier, the devices will be powered by Apple A11 chipset which is said to be built on 10nm architecture.

Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be first smartphones from Apple to feature AMOLED display. Though the company is said to include AMOLED display in 2016 iPhones, it is later postponed for next year due to low production volume. OPPO, the second largest Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has recently launched the non-AMOLED variant of the much popular OPPO R9 due to the lack of higher production volume.


The iPhone 8 will sport 5-inch display while the iPhone 8 Plus will come with a 5.5-inch display. The third device, iPhone 7 SE will sport a 4.7-inch display. Unlike the iPhone 6S or the upcoming iPhone 7; the iPhone 7 SE will be the most expensive entry-level variant. It still comes with TFT display unlike the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Since there is a long time for the actual launch, we expect to see further changes while coming to the final products. Stay tuned for more updates!

    Everything about Apple is interesting but one thing that irks me still is that they still won’t make the base model 32gb !? Isn’t that too difficult can’t understand!

    Apple is very eager to leak it’s updates. We are still waiting for launch of iPhone 7 but they are talking about iPhone 8. I think then iPhone 8 will be a topic of discussion everywhere instead of iPhone 7.

  • iPhone 7 has not been launched and we have information about next year’s iPhone 8!! Well I’m a fan of Android. And I’d love to have ten different Androids than a single iPhone!! 😉
