iPhone 8 To Come In Three Different Variants: Pros And Cons Of Apple’s New Strategy : The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have barely bagun to roll out across the globe and the tech world is already abuzz with news about the iPhone 8, which will be Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone. The hype is real, there is no doubt about that. But now the rumors suggest that the upcoming handheld might come in three different variants, as opposed to the company’s standard offering of two.
MacRumors listed down the estimates of KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to him, Apple would provide an option for a 4.7 inch model with a standard single lens camera and LCD display, as well as a 5.5 inch model with a dual-lens camera and LCD display. However, he pushed further and claimed that there will be a third model, with a dual-lens camera and an OLED display.
The display size of the OLED model was not specified. However, at is slated to be the premium model among the iPhone 8 offerings, it is likely to be a larger 5.5 inch. However, there were previous reports that Apple would release a 5.8 inch handheld with an OLED screen, so this might be the same item.
The OLED screen will be a notable change in the iPhone 8 line, but previous reports also claimed that only one model of the anniversary handheld will be sporting the same. Apparently, OLED display providers cannot commit to a large supply of the same, so Apple has had to work around the same. As with most things, this has not been confirmed by the Cupertino-based company.
The inclusion of a third, more premium offering changes things for the company, who has provided two options with its most recent generations. Moreover, the prevailing differences have always been mostly about the size. That is, until the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were released and Apple drew a camera system between them.
It looks like Apple will widen the gap between its same-generation handsets, which may or may not work in its favor. Unlike most smartphone companies, Apple has only released – at the most – two devices per generation. On the other hand, its competitors like Apple have a wide range of offerings that can cater to an audience of several preferences.
