The three smartphones are being referred as the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 (or iPhone X). In the past, Apple's Chief Design Officer Jony Ive said that the reason the iPhone's power drained so quickly was because the phone was so alluring to consumers.
Apple Inc's share price hit an intraday record high on Tuesday for the first time in nearly two years as investors raised bets that a 10th anniversary iPhone will boost lacklustre sales.
The speculation that Apple will adopt an OLED screen for its next generation handset is not new. However, it is undeniable that a starting price north of $1,000 would make the iPhone 8 out of reach for a significant number of consumers. We suspect we'll hear more about the OLED panel in time, however.
Kuo claims that the non-OLED 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones - which now are rumored to the called the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus - won't make use of stackable mainboards, which means battery capacity in those models will be roughly comparable to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
The display is one of the most expensive components of a smartphone.
Apple is reportedly working on an iPhone with edge-to-edge OLED display to provide more function area. Previously, Apple used LCD displays for the iPhone.
The S&P 500's .SPX largest component has climbed 50 percent from its low in the first half of previous year and is up nearly 17 percent so far in 2017, with many investors betting that Apple will mark the iPhone's 10th anniversary with a dramatically improved model. These rumors further stated that the iPhone 8's buttons would follow the iPhone 7's model, with capacitive buttons being partnered with a haptic engine. After all, simply tasks such as hard resetting or muting the iPhone 8 while the device is in a pocket would be quite difficult if the buttons are all capacitive.
Apple declined to comment, and BOE declined to comment on talks with customers. In its place, Kuo writes that Apple may implement a security verification system built around face recognition technology. How is that? Well, Samsung is crucial for the success of the iPhone 8.
