Apple to Introduce Three New iPhone Models Next Year, One With Curved OLED Display?

Posted by · 12651 views · Translate

Apple is reportedly planning to introduce three new iPhone models next year with one of them featuring a curved OLED display

A source 'familiar with Apple's plans' told the Nikkei Asian Review that "there will be a 4.7-inch model, another that will be 5.5-inches and a premium handset that will be either 5.5-inches or larger equipped with a screen bent on the two sides."

David Hsieh, a senior director at IHS DisplaySearch, says that only the premium handset will feature an OLED display and the other two models will stick with low-temperature poly-silicon panels.

Nikkei says that Samsung is the only company who can currently supply flexible OLED screens. It will likely be the sole supplier for the OLED display used by Apple in its next generation device.

Apple is widely rumored to be moving to an all-glass design for the 2017 iPhone. It will reportedly have a front glass cover and chassis, joined by a metal bezel and an edge-to-edge display that has no bezels on the top and bottom. Additionally, the front camera, Touch ID, speaker, and other sensors will apparently be embedded into the display.

Notably, Foxconn is said to be developing glass casing technology in order to maintain its position as a key iPhone assembler and capture orders for the device.

All of these rumors about an iPhone that is more than a year away, are just that... Rumors made up by people who are NOT at Apple, and have absolutely NO connection to Apple's cloistered R&D projects for future products. If you think that Apple's security against leaks about the iPhone 7 (which will be finally introduced just 2 weeks from now by Apple, and is currently in production) is amazingly tight... And it has been! Since we know nothing about it other than the fan-made mockups of what they think just the backside of the iPhone 7 will look like (all of the mock-ups so far have had differences from each other)... Imagine how tight Apple's security is on a product that is more than a year away, and that even most Apple employees (except for the small R&D group at Apple) have ZERO knowledge about it. “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Kierkegaard
