The competition keeps improving. Can the iPhone keep up?
Apple fans are anxiously awaiting the release of this year’s iPhones as glowing reviews for Android’s top competitors trickle in. A new report from Bloomberg should keep iOS users confident their next device will compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6. According to “people familiar with the matter,” Apple will fight this year’s long-running battle against Google with three new high-end iPhones.
Apple will allegedly release direct successors to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (perhaps 7s and 7s Plus?) with updated specs. The two phones are also said to be outfitted with the company’s traditional liquid crystal display, and come in 4.7 and 5.5-inch screen sizes.
It is also expected to release what many believe will be named the “iPhone 8,” a redesigned top-of-the line beast that could cost more than $1,000. The Bloomberg report says Apple is testing a new type of curved OLED screen for the most expensive phone, which will reportedly be made of stainless steel, and feature more advanced cameras. It also claims the premium version will come with a screen that covers the entire front of the phone, giving it a display larger than that found on the iPhone 7 Plus on a device the size of an iPhone 7.
The device may be delayed one to two months after Apple’s usual September release date due to short supply. The Economic Daily News says problems with the phone’s OLED screen and 3D-sensing technology could also push the release date back a bit.
