KGI: Next-generation ‘iPhone 7’ to be as thin as iPod touch, around 6mm


Although we might be simply three days away from the introduction of the iPhone 6S, which will mirror the iPhone 6 in appearance, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is currently anticipating the iPhone after the iPhone 6S, which would be named ‘‘ iPhone 7’if Apple followed previous year trends. In the tock year, Apple has generally altered the way the iPhone looks externally and obviously 2016 will certainly be no various. The report says the next iPhone will approach iPod touch levels of thinness, with a body in between 6 and 6.5 mm. For contrast, the existing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are 6.9 and 7.1 mm respectively.

It likewise suggests that the next-generation iPhone will certainly make use of the exact same Force Touch innovation as the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 6S and 6S Plus as Apple providers have invested greatly in the feature for this year’s devices.

As such, this recommends that Apple will certainly not move to glass screen innovation, as suggested by a previous report, and instead stay with in-cell panels. In-cell panels have constraints on optimum screen resolution, however KGI does not see Apple wanting to go to 4K resolution displays for iPhones anytime soon. One significant benefit of in-cell screen technology over other options is thinness– by incorporating the touchscreen sensing units into the LCD, optimum thinness can be accomplished. This will assist in achieving the 6-6.5 mm density Apple apparently desires for the iPhone 7.

Whilst it may appear unusual to be discussing the iPhone 7 prior to the 6S ares officially revealed or released, Apple’s product timescales are such that they work on multiple generations of device simultaneously.

For customers, obviously, everyone is presently concentrated on the 2015 lineup which will be announced on Wednesday, 9th September. 9to5Mac published a complete roundup of what to anticipate yesterday, so ensure to read that for all the details.

Certainly, the headline device is the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Whilst keeping the exact same exterior look, the phones will certainly showcase considerable internal updates– faster processor, upgraded cams, pressure delicate screen and more. We also expect the revamped Apple TELEVISION and iPad Pro to showcase in the statements as well, in one of Apple’s biggest product occasions ever.
