It may be a long shot speculating over the next iPhones so early but rumour mill doesn't have a fixed timeline. Apple is widely expected to release the next-gen iPhones, reportedly known as iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, in September this year with major overhaul.
If rumours are to be believed, Apple will ditch the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus and directly go for the successors. Here are some top rumours about the unannounced iPhones' display, camera, processor and more.
Apple will reportedly offer similar screen sizes for both of its next-gen iPhones as in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The rumoured iPhone 7 will boast a 4.7-inch screen while the iPhone 7 plus will carry a 5.5-inch display, Mac Rumours reports. If true, rumours about Apple releasing a new 4-inch iPhone are dumped down the drain.
Processor and RAM
In the battle to stay ahead of others, Apple must use the latest tech in the new phones. The processors used in iPhones have been lauded for their great performance and the iPhone 7 will continue to follow the tradition. Apple is planning to integrate its most advanced next-gen A9 chipset in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus along with 2GB RAM, making the handsets first to boast such high RAM space.
Apple will bring major developments to the cameras in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, making it one of the major USPs. According to Computer World, Apple's patent filings show the tech giant is developing image stabilization tech. Other reports have indicated that the next iPhones will deliver DSLR-like images using dual-lens camera system, which is now confirmed with a recent acquisition of LinX, a company that develops advanced camera sensors.
Apple is known for its aluminium unibody but the company will improve its standard in the next iPhones. According to the Computer World report, Apple will take advantage of metal alloys with Liquid Metal to build the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Also, the Cupertino tech giant has long been rumoured to bring sapphire displays to its iPhones and the upcoming models seem to be the right fit.
Use of special materials will make the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus 60 percent durable than the current models and sapphire glass will protect from scratches.
Apple will further improve the user experience on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The company is planning to support Force Touch in its next iPhones, which will analyze user's intensity of a touch and perform suitable actions.
"We believe that iPhone's Force Touch sensor doesn't directly detect the pressure applied by fingers. Instead, it monitors the contact area on which the finger touches the screen to decide how big the pressure is," said Ming-Chi Kuo as reported by MacRumors.
Also, rumours suggest that Force Touch will replace the Home button on the iPhones, making more space for usable display.
Apple might bring all of these features in the next iPhones or surprise us with some new inventions. Either ways, these are just rumours in early stage and more concrete details with evidence might appear as the launch of the next iPhones near.
