Although the iPhone SE is still the talk of the town, as Apple’s newest release, we can’t help but wonder what the tech giant has up their sleeve next.
A note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo provides a slight hint what might be in store for the iPhone 7. According to Kuo, Apple might be going with a curved glass front for the iPhone 7, with metal sides and thinner bezels for a more comfortable grip.
In even bigger news, the iPhone 7 might switch to a new AMOLED screen, instead of the familiar LCD display. AMOLED displays can be much more energy efficient than LCDs, which could be good news for our battery lives, or allow for the possibility of more powerful components. AMOLED screens can be lighter and more flexible than LCDs, as well, further reinforcing the curved design rumors.
The only uncertainty is whether or not the manufacturer will be able to meet the demands. If they can, Apple might upgrade to a 5.8″ display, upgrading from the current 5.5″. Otherwise, the AMOLED screens might be available as an upgrade.
These are just some of the possible upgrades and amendments slated for the iPhone 7. There is some speculation that the iPhone 7 will accomodate wireless charging, although it remains to be seen if Apple will choose a proprietary solution, or work with existing wireless charging technologies, such as PMA, Rezence, and Qi. There is also some talk of facial recognition software and iris scanning, to offer another security level, in addition to the fingerprint touch scan.
The iPhone 7 is shaping up to be one of the most extreme updates yet!
