This year marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple has something special planned for the company’s annual launch event. The premium iPhone 8 has long been rumored to come with a brand new design and innovative features that will help the device differentiate itself from others on the market.
Most rumors out there claim that Apple will introduce up to three iPhone models at its September launch event. The two standard iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are rumored to be sold alongside the high-end model, but the two will likely come with modest improvements and a lower price tag.
According to some recent reports, the premium iPhone 8 could cost more than $1000 at launch, making it the most expensive iPhone ever. In reality, new iPhones never come cheap at launch. However, the $1000 mark seems a little bit outrageous for most users, making buying an iPhone 7s or an iPhone 7s Plus a better choice.
In this article, we will go through what we know about the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. For some background, Apple will announce the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in September, meaning that we now have less than two months to go until the launch day.
Most rumors claim that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will take some design hints from the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. However, some recent reports say that the design of the new devices will remain unchanged. This means that we will have the same 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch displays on the front. Many find these reports to be somewhat plausible, as Apple did not make any exterior change on the older iPhone 6s, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 4s.
If these reports are true, 2017 will mark the fourth year of Apple using the aluminum on its iPhone models. In comparison, the premium iPhone 8 will see the return of a glass body which was previously used in the fan-favorite iPhone 4.
The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are believed to offer the same screen sizes and pixel density as the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. This means that the smaller iPhone model will sport a 4.7 inch display (1334 x 750 pixels), while the bigger will have a 5.5-inch display (1920 x 1080 pixels). Both devices will stick to the traditional LCD panels, rather than the OLED panels.
According to sources, the displays of the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be much brighter and sharper than those of the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Last year, the Cupertino Company added DCI-P3 wide color gamut to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, offering a higher pixel density and a much-improved brightness.
This year, Apple introduced a new 10.5 inch iPad Pro and a 12.9 inch iPad Pro, featuring ProMotion, a new screen technology that offers refresh rates of up to 120Hz for faster scrolling and greater responsiveness. However, there is a good chance that ProMotion will be available on the premium iPhone 8 only.
The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are expected to get the best of Apple’s hardware. This means that the two devices will feature 10-nanometer A11 chip that will be faster and more power efficient than the 16-nanometer A10 chip used in the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. The iPhone 7s Plus will feature 3GB of RAM, while the smaller iPhone 7 will have 2GB of RAM. The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are believed to offer better transfer speeds than 2016 iPhones.
When it comes to battery life, rumors claim that Apple will keep the same battery size found on the last year’s iPhone models. This means that the 4.7 inch iPhone will have a 1960mAh battery, while the 5.5 inch model will sport a 2900mAh battery. Tech analysts say that the A11 chip will help boost battery life on this year’s iPhone models.
The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus won’t be a significant update when compared to last year’s models. However, with a better performance and a 10-nanometer A11 chip, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be worth the upgrade.
