The changes in iPhone 7 are forecasted to be as conservative as the transition between the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.

But the forecasts are to stop in trend as new reports suggest that Apple will feature three different iPhone variants by 2017. One of the most notable features that it will have is having the same signature feature of the Galaxy Note 7.

A credible source told Nikkei Asian Review that: "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." The future device that Apple will release by 2017 which is the iPhone 8 will be very identical to that of the Galaxy Note 7 as it will also have a 5.5 inched AMOLED screen that is curved.

There are also reports that say Apple is going to have a partnership with Samsung with regards to the development of the potentially new curved screen that the iPhone will get. Nikkei confirms that unofficial statements that Samsung will be the major supplier of the OLED curved screens that Apple will be using for the iPhone 8 in 2017.

The revolutionary design that the iPhone will get is a risk for Apple. Apple is not experiencing a total doom as of now, but the statistics that shows the decline of iPhone sales this year will most likely to plummet down as the incoming iPhone 7 does not have that much of an upgrade.

The decrease in iPhone sales is not only affecting Apple but also its suppliers. Nikkei says in a statement that it is very possible that the number of ordered units will drop down from 231 million to 200 million. Most of the people are in favor of jut a simple 4.7-inch smartphone and that the RAM is not much of a concern for them.
