For two years straight, Apple has been phasing out its 5.5 inch iPhone, securing its spot in the phablet smartphone market. However, this latest rumor suggests that the tech giant is aiming to increase that screen size, as you will find out shortly.
iPhone Coming In 2017 Or 2018 Rumored To Sport A 5.8 Inch Display And One Massive Difference Compared To Its Predecessors
According to the latest rumor, Apple’s largest iPhone coming in during September 2017 or 2018 (if the company decides to stage its event in this month), will be sporting a massive screen size of 5.8 inches. Large screen smartphones have natural advantages at their fingertips; companies can choose to incorporate larger sized batteries inside them, and the overall viewing experience improves thanks to all that extra real estate.
Another critical difference that we have been talking about is the incorporation of OLED screens inside these next-generation devices. Samsung has been reported of investing over $7 billion into supplying OLED displays for future iPhones, following rumors last year that 2018 would mark Apple's official shift from LCD to OLED displays in its popular smartphone line. More recent reports suggest that OLED timeline could be moved up to 2017.
OLED screens have several advantages, which will be covered in a later topic, but its primary perk will be that it will deliver sharper images and consume less power, leading to improved battery life. Those are not the only improvements that we will be seeing in the next iPhones. In a previous post, we stated that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 Plus was reported to come with 256GB of internal storage as its highest capacity model, along with a 3,100mAh battery, suggesting that iPhones coming in 2017 and 2018 will have even larger capacities.
Additionally, a dual-camera interface suggests that the Cupertino tech company will also be welcoming dual-camera setups inside future devices. We are not certain about the total megapixel count of the upcoming iPhone, so we will stick to our gut and believe that the sensor will retain the same number of megapixels (12.3MP) as the current generation iPhones, but will add more features courtesy of the updated software from Apple. Unfortunately, details are hazy at best, and we are confident that more information will be made available to us as soon as we move closer and closer to Apple’s upcoming event, which is going to take place during the month of September.
With this revelation, Apple is definitely aiming for the fences, but more importantly, we would like to hear your thoughts on the matter, so let us know as soon as possible.
