Now Apple is rumored to introduce ‘Red’ iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus smartphones next year. To recall, Apple had launched Black and Jet Black color variants of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones this year.
As reported by Macotakara, the successors next year will add a Red colour variant into the already existing options of – Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Black, and Jet Black. The report further claims that the successors will be called the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus – refuting previous rumours of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus naming, said to mark the 10-year anniversary.
It notes that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will not include wireless charging or the shift to glass casing, but will instead see an upgrade in hardware i.e. a new ‘more powerful’ A11 chipset. This new chip will be introduced alongside the new Red colour option.
A KGI report had spoken an almost similar story. The report said that Apple would release three variants, with one being the iPhone 8 premium variant to mark its tenth anniversary. The iPhone 8 will come with significant upgrades including the bezel-less curved OLED display, no Home Button, an optical fingerprint sensor, and an all-glass casing. However, KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo said that wireless charging would trickle into all the three variants, something that the fresh Macotakara report now refutes. Kuo, however claims, that wireless charging adapters will be bundled with just the premium model, and the base model buyers will have to buy it as an additional separate accessory.
Apple has reportedly also decided to introduce OLED displays only on the iPhone 8 premium variant due to shortage of supply of OLED panels. This means the company may keep LCD panels on the other two iPhone variants. But we strongly suggest you to take all the things lightly, as these are just rumors coming in. Therefore Apple can change it’s strategy before the production of the new iPhones begin.
