Apple Inc. – the Cupertino based iPhone making giant – is gearing up to release three new iPhones next year, according to the Japan-based news publishing site ‘Nikkei.’ Citing two industry sources, the financial news outlet said that the upcoming phones of the Silicon Valley giant will pack brighter and more colorful OLED Displays.
Apple already working on the design of upcoming phones: Nikkei
The earlier reports about the Cupertino-based smartphone maker noted that the iPhone making giant is planning three new iPhones for this September. The iPhone making giant is expected to provide a new OLED display on its most high-end iPhone in 2017. It will probably be called the iPhone 8. The screen of the smartphone is anticipated to overthrow the complete front of the phone. It is not certain if the tech giant will continue that design language into all three of the phones that are scheduled to release next year, according to reports.
The report by Nikkei notes that “Apple has started to design new iPhones for release in 2018, but its plans are subject to change.” The news outlet is not wrong exactly wrong because we all know that the Silicon Valley giant has a history of making changes in product lineup and specifications along the way. The iPhone maker may stay flexible to accommodate the quality of the product and also accommodate market forces. The Japan-based news site said that the iPhone maker is already working on the design of the new iPhones.
The tech giant has not made any comment on the report of the news site yet and the spokesperson of Apple Inc. was not immediately available to clear the matter.
