Apple readies iPhone overhaul for smartphone's 10th anniversary

20 April, 2017, 09:55 | Author: Nadine Todd

Ditching the Home button and stretching the new OLED display to the gently curved sides will let Apple fit a screen almost the size of the iPhone 7 Plus into a smartphone that closer in size to the iPhone 7.

While Kuo initially went on the record suggesting that the Galaxy S8 duo inherently "lacked attractive selling points", particularly in comparison to Apple's completely reimagined iPhone 8 flagship, he appears to have backtracked a bit on those claims in one of this morning's notes. OLED panels for the redesigned iPhone, as other suppliers won't be ready to supply mass quantities until later, Bloomberg News reported previous year. Citing its own unnamed sources, the website added that chip makers will step up the pace of their inventory building between the end of the second quarter and beginning of the third. A Samsung rep has already said that it was a deliberate design decision to try and free up more internal room for a battery, but the justification doesn't really matter: it still leads to a awful user experience. DigiTimes didn't mention any specific names, so the 220 million to 230 million unit range encompasses all of this year's models, however many that ends up being.

Apple is not the only company whose fate depends on the iPhone.

The overhauled iPhone will use an organic light-emitting diode display that more accurately shows colors, while the other two phones will continue to use liquid crystal display technology and come in the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes as last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, according to people familiar with the matter. Some reports pegged the price at more than $1,000, although the reality of that began to set in as analysts realized that the average consumer probably won't shell out that much for a smartphone-even one with an Apple logo on it. Even though the Cupertino based tech giant has yet to start giving out invites, this hasn't stopped the tech community from sparking up rumors about iPhone 8.

Harrison is forecasting 242 million iPhone units for fiscal 2018, which is even more than what DigiTimes reported that Apple's chip suppliers are preparing for.

Bloomberg just published a comprehensive overview of the iPhone 8, listing the generally accepted details of AAPL's design.
