New Delhi: Apple is planning to revamp its entire iPhone lineup next year and according to KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company will release it’s new iPhone with a glass casing and an Amoled display. The handset is expected to have a 5.8-inch display.
According to Kuo, the Cupertino-based company is considered to be between glass, plastic and ceramic casing for the 2017 iPhone models - expected to be called the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus - and it is likely to side with glass. Furthermore, the iPhone 7 will have a curved display which will go along with a curved glass body. Both these changes will set the supposed iPhone apart from the current line of iPhone models that offer a metal body and a flat LCD display.
Kuo also anticipates that in the next year's iPhone there will be a narrower bezels and a "completely new form factor design." Also, despite having a larger display it will have a more dense body. This is in line with a recent report which claimed that Apple was in talks with Samsung and LG for manufacturing an Oled display and is brighter and more energy efficient than LCD.
Other features that are rumoured for the 2017 iPhone include support for wireless charging and the addition of a biometric recognition, which could be either a facial recognition or an iris scanner.
