The Buzz around Launch of 4 New iPhones Mystifies Apple's Next Year Plans, Rumours hints that apple preparing to launch new 4 iPhone next year (2017).
A new tattle doing the round indicates that Apple is planning to roll out not one or two, but four models of the iPhone series in the coming year. This report has given an obscured but still a basis to keep the hopes alive on the probable of launch of iPhone 8 in 2017.
There were many conflicting rumours on what name would be given to the upcoming model of the iPhone. While some say that it will be “7S”, as per the Tick-Tock cycle of the American multinational company, others suggest it could be called “8”, with the change in the Cycle due to major overhaul in the basic design. Since Apple is completing the 10th anniversary of first iPhone announcement and launch on 9th January and 29th June respectively, the iPhone 8 theories gained prominence. For a twist in the business, is just what is required to add to the fervour of the special occasion.
Now, with this new report published by Japanese media, that four phones are in the pipeline for the next year, we may have 7s and 7s Plus, as well as 8 and 8 Plus in the market by 2017. The ‘s' models of the iPhone usually have reiterative upgrades and retain the original encasing and so iPhone 8 is something that is generating more interest.
The level of adulation that iPhones enjoy, is so high that even before a new gadget starts getting manufactured, its affect is researched upon, reported and reviewed by experts. The hearsay arising frequently, keeps the excitement level of the brand lovers intact and well, this is also needed for the success of any new product.
Speculations are rife that the iPhone 8 line up would be embedded with many deadly features that would provide users a never-before experience. Among the many theories, one suggests the presence of A11 Chip of 10-nanometer, which would make the handsets in the new series run faster with greater efficiency. Apart from these, many experts are also expecting the introduction of long range wireless charging facility, Iris Scanner or similar biometric security function and dual camera featuring optical image stabilisation in both lenses. There may also be incorporation of curved OLED display in one or two or all the models. The size of the screen may also go through a change and it may be 5.5 inch or more or may be different for different models.
As per what is said by analyst Ming Chi Kuo, the body of new iPhone would not be made of aluminium but double glass metal frame but an improved version of what was used in 4s. Kuo also thinks that aluminium frame will be used in lesser expensive phones while the costly ones will have stainless steel frame to house the components. But the question remains whether the use of glass would be applicable in case of all the new devices or the devices in the new series or the higher-end models. Japanese website Nikkei said that all the 2017 phones would have glass cases.
Another source states that a new red-shade variant may be added in the line-up to attract more customers. As of now the Apple phones are available in the tints of gold, rose gold, jet black, silver and black. Again, whether this red colour would be made available in the '7s' and '7s Plus' or ‘8' and ‘8 Plus' models or in all of them, remains unclear.
With all these circulating reports and some new ones coming along, it would be really interesting to see what is the actually in store for the next year and how Apple would do justice to its image of the groundbreaking technologist.
