iPhone 7S Release Date, Latest News & Update: Apple Mid-Range Variants Serving Send-Offs to LCD Display Technology

Apple has provided most with some teases on what to expect for the iPhone 8, all that is except the looming OLED technology most are expecting. The next Apple flagship is expected to move on from LCD screens though a couple of mid-range variants could still come sporting them.

A 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variant could come out in 2017 as well, reasonable priced and likely the last iPhones carrying LCD technology, Forbes reported. KGI Securities analyst and reliable Apple tipster Ming-Chi Kuo believes that such is happening and that the two will be among the iPhone 7S lines which most may have already forgotten.

With most interested in the redesigned iPhone 8, the traditional S line from Apple has been somehow laid back. This product line could very well be a key player in the smartphone market which Kuo believes will account for 30 to 35 percent of iPhone shipments for 2017.

That said, the bulk of the forecast for the iPhone in 2017 will still fall on the iPhone 8. Kuo adds that 50 to 55 percent of shipments will account for that, something that hardly comes as a surprise considering Apple will be introducing a redesigned device that is long overdue, Apple Insider reported.

Aside from the screens of the iPhone 7S and iPhone 8, there are of course more to look forward to. Some of the iPhone 7 features like a thinner mold, iteration of the 3.5 mm jacks and a bezel-less design are expected to be at the front of it all.

Aside from that, there are other features -- such as wireless charging and Touch ID fingerprint technology -- that should be perfectly embedded with the rumored all-glass device. It will also ably be supported by an all-aluminum frame.

Will the iPhone 7S be the perfect complement to the iPhone 8? Stay tuned for more updates on Apple’s next flagship here on Game and Guide.
