Most recent reports coming from Apple‘s supply in China reveal a mysterious iPhone. Named iPhone X, it is said to be the most premium form among the three iPhone variations speculated to launch this year.
In note experts Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company sees a ‘feature-rich launch’ of three new iPhone models in late 2017, featured by what he refers to as iPhone X.
According to the note, the rumoured ‘iPhone X’ will sport a 5.8-inch OLED panel with a ‘wraparound’ screen design. He included that the organization will also launch 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen ‘iPhone 7s’ models.
It is reputed that although the screen size of the ‘iPhone X’ could be 5.8-inch, the actual workable territory might be much less.
The investor note adds that Apple could also use OLED displays in smaller iPhone models but the decision depends on Samsung’s capacity of supplying the OLED panels. The ‘wraparound’ display is said to be limited to ‘iPhone X’ only. It is expected to use ‘fixed flex’ screen, something users in recent Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
Arcuri included that Apple may incorporate Synaptec’s optical-based fingerprint reader for the new Touch ID sensor, saying it to be the only solution to embed a fingerprint sensor on the display.
The cellular modems in the coming models are said to continue coming from Intel and Qualcomm. Also expected is some facial or gesture technology in iPhone X. The technology is said to be supported by laser sensor, an infrared sensor, wireless-charging and the front-facing camera.
In conclusion, it has been suggested that the iPhone 8 or the ‘iPhone X’ could sport a stainless steel casing and a durable metal that will hold glass panels at front and back.
Earlier reports included that all three models will get IP68 rating, which would make them dust and water resistant. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones already come with this rating.
