It is expected that Apple this year will release three new iPhone models. As reported by a leading analyst of KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo, all three of the device will support wireless charging technology.
The most important insider information about the upcoming iPhone, of course, is the presence of at least one model of the AMOLED display. Some sources also mentioned the emergence of new wireless charging technology.
Now the same analysts said KGI Securities. According to given data, in the future Apple will use glass housing with the new module 3D Touch, which will receive “additional graphite layer, the lamination” to prevent overheating of components.
“Although the average user will hardly notice the difference, lamination in the form of additional graphite layer is required for better temperature control and stable operation of the device. This is due to the fact that the company abandoned the technology in favor of the FPCB of the film, which is more sensitive to temperature changes of the sensor 3D Touch into an iPhone with an OLED display,” writes Kuo.
Production of the new module 3D Touch will cost Apple $5 more. Although it is a little more expensive, this is another confirmation of recent information about the iPhone release in 2017 for the first time will cost more than $1000.
The high cost of the new Apple smartphones may be due not only to the new module 3D Touch or jubilee status, but also edge-to-edge OLED display. This item will cost the company twice more expensive than the current LCD displays. But this innovation will allow to get rid of the mechanical Home button on the front panel. The side buttons can replace the touch panels in a metal frame.
In addition to the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 in the glass case Apple will introduce this year a 4.7-inch iPhone 7s and 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus with minimal changes in the design compared to the current flagships.
