OLED display and dual camera reportedly exclusive to 5.5-inch iPhone 8

According to all the rumors, the iPhone which will arrive in 2017 will be a big hit in the mobile telephony market. At the moment not much is known about the iPhone 8 or what they call the terminal, but the vast majority of rumors assure that there will be at least one model with OLED screen. The downside is that there are many rumors that also assure that this screen will only be present in the 5.5-inch iPhone.

Today it is again Ming-Chi Kuo, the most popular analyst in the Apple world, who has published a report in which he assures that yes, an iPhone that will be presented in 2017 will have the aforementioned OLED screen, but the bad thing is that the famous Taiwanese analyst assures that next year there will be three iPhone models and only a special model More will display this technology on your screen. The other two models, among which there will be another 5.5 inch Plus, will arrive with the TFT-LCD screens that we have had until the current models.

There will only be a special iPhone 8 with an OLED screen

What seems more worrying is that the KGI analyst assures that it would only be this special model that would have a completely new industrial designwhich makes us think that Apple is planning to launch a special model for the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, and we already know that the « special » also has a special price, which usually means more expensive.

The special model Kuo is talking about could also come with a slightly larger 5.8-inch screen. The new design would allow the iPhone 8 Plus with OLED display to have a larger screen of the same size as the TFT-LCD display, which would be possible thanks to the elastic capacity of OLED displays. That explained, this special model is expected to have a all glass housingsomething similar to how the iPhone 4 was.

What is no longer so surprising is that the dual camera, already present in the iPhone 7 Plus, will remain exclusive to the 5.5-inch models. The 4.7-inch model would be without the advanced camera and without the OLED screen which would offer darker blacks and longer battery life if black is the dominant color in the user interface.

If we want to continue without losing hope of having to pay much more if we want the best iPhone next year, we can remember that at the end of 2015/beginning of 2016 it was believed that the iPhone 7 would arrive in three versions (iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro), something Apple liked, but the Pro model has been discontinued because it might confuse users. The downside is that the iPhone's 10th anniversary may be a good time to release a third model, and we'll likely see a special model to celebrate it in about 10 months.

As always, only by waiting will we know whether Ming-Chi Kuo is right this time or not. If that's the case and three iPhone models come out in 2017, will you buy the model with the OLED screen?
