2017 iPhones Not Delayed, Coming In Three Colors
Reputable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that this year's iPhone models will not be delayed, regardless of earlier reports that the iPhone 8 launch will be delayed until next year. It is also reported that the "iPhone 8," the iPhone 7s, and the iPhone 7s Plus will reportedly be available in just three colors and the popular rose gold isn't making the cut.
The report is coming from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a reputation for scoops on Apple's upcoming iPhone moves. Kuo's latest research note, as reported by MacRumors, claimed that Apple will reveal the iPhone 8 and its iPhone 7 updates all at once in September. The all three iPhone models will start shipping at the same time, too.
Still, that's a lot more optimistic than other reports about the iPhone 8's release, as some analysts had predicted that the three iPhones will not be arriving until late this year. Despite reported shortages of the OLED panels, which is going to be a big feature in the new iPhone 8, some reports claim that Apple engineers are struggling to perfect new features like wireless charging, Touch it, and face recognition in order to make the early production of the latest iPhone.
According to Kuo's note, all upcoming iPhone models this year will also have fast charging feature, but he also stated that users may need to purchase a Type-C power adapter additionally to enable faster charging. The current iPad Pro has a similar feature, as it uses the MacBook's $49 29W USB-C power adapter for fast charging. The research note also claims that Apple is planning to launch black, silver and gold variants of its iPhones this fall, as reported by Toms Guide.
The highly anticipated iPhone 8 is said to have an edge-to-edge OLED display with an even higher resolution than the iPhone 7 Plus. Details from Apple's own HomePod firmware indicates that it will have a 5.15-inch display area with a resolution of 2,436 by 1,125 pixels.
For the pricing, reports suggest that Apple could charge a starting price of more than $1,000 for its new high-end iPhone 8. However, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be having a slightly lower price tag.
