Spying into Apple’s plans: We could be having a curved iPhone next year like Samsung

According to reports, Apple will be releasing three fresh iPhones by 2017. The trio of phones to be released includes one premium model rocking a curved display which bears resemblance with that employed in Samsung devices. This report sourced from the Nikkei Asian Review, which makes reference to a source “familiar with Apple’s plans.” The nameless tipster revealed to the publication: “There will be a 4.7-inch model, another that will be 5.5-inches, and a premium handset that will be either 5.5-inches or larger equipped with a screen bent on the two sides.”

Spying into Apple's plans: We could be having a curved iPhone next year like Samsung

It is fair to say at this point that this very description really lacks certainty. It is possible to imply from here an iPhone carrying the delicate lines of the Galaxy Note 7 or the more eye-catching curves of the Galaxy S7 Edge . Nikkei also quotes an analyst who is making claims that Samsung stands to be a supplier for these fresh displays to come. The publication also brings in the piece of information that the premium iPhone will equally make use of the OLED for its screen. You will agree with me that this is actually one feature that is been around before now in the rumours (as well as the curved display).

Nikkei asserts that going by its previous expectations, it was looking forward to a “premium” 5.5-inch model whose release we will be having this 2016. But then the device was abandoned by Apple, with the company taking after the preference of releasing a basic 5.5-inch “iPhone 7 Plus” as well as a 4.7-inch “iPhone 7.”

Surely Apple is earnestly looking to unveil fresh iPhone models early as September. Nikkei’s source is lending credence to recent reports sources from Bloomberg that the 5.5-inch model will rock a dual-camera system with the 4.7-inch model deploying a single lens.

For now there is the possibility that these phones will look after the iPhone 6S and 6 designs. But this time they may come with less obvious antenna lines, even with the absence of the headphone jack, while sporting a pressure-sensitive home button.
