A new report predicts that Apple may release three iPhones in 2017, with at least one featuring an OLED display.
The prediction comes from respected KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that the all-new OLED model would be positioned as the company’s premium model for the year ahead, reports MacRumors.
“We believe the OLED and 5.5-inch TFTLCD iPhones will feature dual-camera [sic]. Based on this prediction, our forecast of dual camera adoption rate in new 2017F iPhone models is revised up from 30-40% to 65-75%. We view this increase as favoring Largan’s sales and profit momentum as it is the exclusive supplier of wide-angle and telephoto lens. It also bodes well for Apple’s dual camera software ecosystem.”
With 2017 already expected to be the year Apple breaks the old iPhone design mold, it’s also the handset’s tenth birthday. With that comes the expectation for an iPhone 8 that will break the tech barrier, placing it at the top for innovation. However, along with a redesign and new tech, there are rumors which suggest we could see not one, but three new iPhone 8 variants, come September 2017.
According to the prediction, the three new iPhones would include a 4.7in model with a single-lens camera and an LCD display, a 5.5in model with a dual-lens camera and an LCD display, and the OLED model, which would feature a dual-lens camera.
The display size for the OLED model was not specified.—
