article imageiPhone 7s coming in 2017: Novelty design or blast from the past?

By Claudio Buttice     Jul 8, 2016 in Technology
A brand new redesign of the iPhone keeps all the best features of the previous models intact while looking back at the all-glass body that made the iPhone 4 so popular. That's just one of the rumours circulating around Apple's upcoming 2017 iPhone 7s.
In 2017, Apple's iPhone is going to reach its 10th anniversary, and the company has already released abundant rumors about its ambitious plans for a superb device that should celebrate the occasion. The first major change to the new smartphone is going to be the OLED screen, a technology that will upgrade its biggest component. OLED screens not only display more vibrant colors — since they do not require a back light for illumination, they're also more energy efficient than traditional liquid crystal displays (LCD.) This means that the display is going to be thinner, the image definition will be higher and with better contrast, and it will also consume much less battery life.
The CPU is also going to be significantly more powerful. The new A11 chipset from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will be based on a 10-nanometer process which is still in development. The new component will be "denser" than its competitors' (read: Samsung), and will grant much more power to run various apps. Some rumors also claim seven-nanometer chips could be a possibility — although the new chips are probably going to be used for 2018 models. A more robust CPU that doesn't always run on 100 percent power will also help improve the iPhone's battery life even further by reducing overheating and energy consumption.
The most radical aspects of its redesign, however, are those concerning a new edge-to-edge display with Touch ID and camera directly built into it. The display is going to take up the entire front of the smartphone, with a full glass body that goes back to the one used in the iPhone 4. To keep it robust enough, though, a rigid metal frame has been built inside the glass casing. A long-range wireless charging option and biometric additions such as facial scanning or iris are also included among the rumors.
