As per the report published by Korea Herald, it is said that Apple will launch three iPhon variants coming year. One model will have curved OLED display while the other two will flaunt flat LCDs.

It is heard that 7s and 7s Plus will be available in a brand new crimson color. It is said that the S-model phones will be available in the red color variant in addition to the standard black, jet black, rose gold, gold, and silver.
As per the rumors, it is heard that iPhone 8 will have an all-glass case. It is heard that Apple is making use of glass to facilitate wireless charging to its users. Though there are some metal and plastic smartphones that have the facility of wireless charging, using glass is faster. As per the reports, it is said that Apple will incur wireless charging service in all of its new launches including the next-generation 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions of the 7 and 7 Plus. Apple could just use its much-awaited feature of 5.8-inch bezel-less for its brand new iPhone 8. As the 7s and 7s Plus will come with all-glass case and wireless charging facility, it could boost the sale of the smartphones. The reports also say that iPhones will be produced in the second half of next year compared to earlier half. It is expected that 120 to 150 million iPhones will hit the market next year.
The iPhone 8 most likely will come with a curved screen which means that it bends slightly around the edges. As per The Wall Street Journal report, Apple is asking its suppliers to create models with curved OLED displays with higher resolution. It is said that the iPhone with OLED display will be more expensive and is a higher-end model. Along with that, Apple is currently testing about 10 prototypes to decide on the upcoming device which is speculated to sport original new features to highlight the iPhone’s 10th year anniversary in 2017.
Folds Like A Book
This rumor seems to be a true rumor among all others. It is heard that the new iPhone will bend like a book. Apple has just been given with a patent for a book-like iPhone model with OLED display that can fold into half. As this is the first time Apple has been incorporating OLED displays, there are fewer chances that it uses the foldable feature for its phones.
iPhone To Be Released In 3 New Models
It is said that Apple will launch three models next year. Among the three, one model is supposed to house 5.5 inch OLED screen and a dual camera while the other have a 5.5 inch LCD screen with a dual camera again. The third iPhone is said to be a 4.7 inch iPhone with an LCD screen and a single camera system, which looks similar to iPhone 7 model. Apple has already been using OLED displays for its watches and MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar. Using OLED displays for the smartphones for the first time can be considered as a step to grab the attention of the users. OLED has more pros compared to LCD. The OLED display is more responsive and gives bezel-less iPhone with a curved or bendable screen.
Apple is going to use its all-glass case feature for its iPhone 8. The smartphone is said to flaunt a glass case both front and back just like iPhone 4 and 4s. It is expected that iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will have larger screens than 4 models and will be about 3. 5 inches in measurement. It is assumed that Apple will manufacture low-priced models with aluminum case and expensive ones with stainless steel. The glass case will give an all-glassy look to the smartphone. It can be said that Apple is going to apply its success mantra of jet black iPhone 7 on this new model.
As we said earlier, Apple is likely to use OLED displays replacing LCDs this time for its new range of smartphones. It is heard that Apple is in talks with Sharp which is the leading supplier of OLED displays for its new iPhones.
