Apple will launch two 5-inch and 5.8-inch iPhones in 2017, according to Barclays Research

According to analysts Thomas O'Malley, Jerry Zhag, Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn of Barclays Research, Apple will launch a iPhone with a 5-inch screen and another with a 5.8-inch screen with a curved, bezel-less design next year. Analysts cite what they saw in the supply chain after a trip to Asia and say the borderless design will allow the new iPhones to be the same size as the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models. inches that we have today.

The analysts' report, which was published by MacRumors, states that the OLED screen will only be present on the 5.8 inch model, which would be (another) cold water pot for users who prefer a slightly smaller device. OLED displays can offer more vibrant colors and consume less power, especially when using an interface where black is the dominant color.

Barclays Research: “Two iPhones with larger screens and the same size as current ones”

Bigger and bezel-less – It looks like the iPhone 8 design is still subject to change, but we believe the move is to create a bezel-less design with larger screen sizes and curved edges in the original packaging. The iPhone 8 will go to 5″ (from 4.7″) and the Plus will go to 5.8″ (from 5.5″).

Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple world's most renowned analyst, also said that Cupertino will launch an iPhone with a 5.8-inch OLED display and a mostly glass body. If these rumors are correct, the iPhone 8 Plus or whatever the name of the biggest iPhone of 2017 is will have its main attraction on the screen regarding his younger brother. We remember that in the iPhone 6 and 6s the feature that made the iPhone Plus superior was the OIS, while in the iPhone 7 it was the dual camera.

Apple releases fifth beta of iOS 10. There is a public release and new betas of macOS Sierra, tvOS and watchOS 3

The question is unavoidable, although I'm waiting for the answer: what would you think of Apple only launching the iPhone 8 Plus with an OLED screen?
