Latest reports from sources privy to Apple’s inner circles suggest that contrary to all Apple iPhone 8 rumors, the company is planning to release an incremental iPhone update in the form of iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. This rumor seems to have put to rest Apple iPhone 8 predictions that were pointing towards a device with radical redesign and an all-glass body along with unheard off specs. Apple is also on course to launch its next iPhone in a new red color.
According this new report, the next lineup of Apple smartphones will carry the same design found on the current generation of iPhone devices but with the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus name. Next year’s flagship iPhone devices will come with enhance internal specs to keep up with the devices of other major device manufacturers.
If this rumor turns out to be accurate, it means Apple will continue with the current design of iPhone 7, but with some changes in the internal specs to keep the device updated with latest internals. Some of the significant change being tipped currently include the Apple A11 chipset to handle processing tasks, improved camera and bigger RAM. SoC may well run its course by the time iPhone 7S lineup of devices is launched.
According some previous reports, Apple was tipped to launch three iPhone models under the iPhone 8 name. Rumors also tough that Apple will bring an all glass designed iPhone with a new 5.8 inch device model as a flagship device.
The 5.8 inch iPhone 7S device will act as a flagship device with smaller screen sized models to serve the lower market segment. If this report is to be believed, the iPhone 7S and 7S plus would be build with the same aluminum design as found on the current device models, along with the same display technology. This leave only the larger 5.8-inch model of the iPhone with the AMOLED display technology, which will be the first for any Apple device.
But nothing is written on stones, we are still quite a long way away from the official launch of the next iPhone device and things can change. As usual we will keep you informed about all the latest rumors and leaks related to the next iPhone device.
