Plans to introduce three iPhones earlier this year seem to have gone down the drain at Apple, but that doesn’t mean they’ve been completely scrapped forever. Now, according to the Japanese news Nikkei, the idea survives to 2017 – the year when, if all the rumors are right so far, the iPhone will undergo the biggest changes in its history.
According to the publication [Google Tradutor], we will see next year the traditional update of the common models that we are already used to (“7s” and “7s Plus”, say), as well as a special, more expensive model – this would be the one already speculated for some time, with a curved AMOLED screen, possibly measuring more than 5.5 inches.
The supplier of these modern screens would be (surprise!) Samsung, which already uses the technology – with positive results – in its most advanced smartphones.
The uncertainty that the South Korean will be able to supply Apple’s demand (along with its own) in the segment, however, has already made other players in the market move: Foxconn, Apple’s assembler, started to develop AMOLED screens and curved glass. last year, aiming for a partnership with Cupertino also in the field of displays.
It is too early to say for sure, but it seems to me that after this year’s likely calm, in 2017 we will see a (very welcome) storm in the iPhone world. Will take.
