There are three iPhones reportedly set to come out in 2017, two of which could be the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. The third one is the refreshed iPhone 8, perhaps the most awaited of the batch.

That said, it should be interesting if there is anything special to look forward to as far as the iPhone 7s line is concerned. Will it be merely an “S” edition or something pegged to offer buyers something different?

All that likely depends on the features though the latest word has to do with the display. The word out is that the iPhone 7s will come with a display with bezels thinner than 1mm, which seems like an attempt to maintain interest from an all-new iPhone 8 coming.

As most know, the iPhone 8 is believed to be coming with an AMOLED display, a transition from the ancient-old TFT-LCD Apple has been using. A plausible reason for the slight change may be tied up to the available AMOLED display supply, meaning some LCDs will suffice.

Hence, offering a thinner and bezel-less display sounds reasonable considering the iPhone 7s is not in the roadmap for Apple’s big shift for their flagship device, DigiTimes reported. Assuming that the iPhone 7s does come out with a bezel-free device, it could be the next best thing than being stuck to the traditional TFT-LCD displays.

If so, does this mean that Apple is not releasing the iPhone 8 alongside the iPhone 7s duo? It makes no sense to see all three devices at once. If the iPhone 8 does debut, it is expected to overshadow the iPhone 7s line, something that could hurt sales figures.

A lot of this was covered in a previous post along with the potential features the devices will possibly offer. There are, of course, more to expect -- so check back with us soon!
