iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus to Launch in Red Casing Next Year: Report

iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus to Launch in Red Casing Next Year: Report
Highlights
  • The next year variants may be called iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus
  • Apple may introduce a new Red colour variant into the mix
  • A more premium iPhone 8 tipped to be also introduced alongside

This year, Apple introduced the Black and Jet Black colour options with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones. Now, a fresh report claims that the successors will bring in another new option - Red.

Macotakara reports that the successors next year will add a Red colour variant into the already existing options of - Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Black, and Jet Black. The report further claims that the successors will be called the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus - refuting previous rumours of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus naming, said to mark the 10-year anniversary.

It further notes that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will not include wireless charging or the shift to glass casing, but will instead see an upgrade in hardware i.e. a new 'more powerful' A11 chipset. This new chip will be introduced alongside the new Red colour option.

A recent KGI report had spoken an almost similar story. The report said that Apple would release three variants, with one being the iPhone 8 premium variant to mark its tenth anniversary. The iPhone 8 will come with significant upgrades including the bezel-less curved OLED display, no Home Button, an optical fingerprint sensor, and an all-glass casing. However, KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo said that wireless charging would trickle into all the three variants, something that the fresh Macotakara report now refutes. Kuo, however claims, that wireless charging adapters will be bundled with just the premium model, and the base model buyers will have to buy it as an additional separate accessory.

Due to shortage of supply of OLED panels, Apple has reportedly also decided to introduce OLED displays only on the iPhone 8 premium variant, and keep LCD panels on the other two iPhone variants. We strongly recommend you to take all of this very lightly, as these are just initial reports pouring in, and Apple could very well change strategy before the new iPhones head for production.
