It will be 10 years this year, since the Apple iPhone first stormed into palms and pockets the world over. Fighting a huge Android wave singlehandedly, the device still remains the most sought after and desirable premium phone till date. And to mark the iPhone’s 10th Anniversary, Apple has some big plans in store.
Rumors suggest the next version of Apple’s phone will be called the iPhone X and it will boast of a new OLED display, which will cover the entire front of the phone, and even the Home button will be integrated within the screen. Using this more expensive display technology is about to cost Apple twice as much over the LCD display used on current gen iPhones. Some even claim that Apple will launch three devices this year, one being an iPhone 7s with a 4.7-inch screen, an iPhone 7 Plus with a 5.5-inch LCD screen and an iPhone 8/X with a 5.8-inch OLED display and a dual camera setup like the 7 Plus.
The report suggests that the next iPhone will be most likely made of forged stainless steel, which is less expensive than aluminium which is currently used. The back is expected to be made of glass, replacing metal. Physical buttons on the sides might go away, and could be replaced by touch sensitive inlays inside the metal. The next iPhone is also expected to be powered by a battery, which is bigger than the one on the current iPhone 7 line.
