Every year companies reveal their new smartphones for the year, and sometimes its minor updates to their previous phone from last year. It’s very common for companies to take a few years to really change the design of their flagship smartphones. Along with smartphone reveals we get lots of rumors of what we might expect from the latest and greatest. When Samsung is gearing up to reveal a new product, they usually find a way to screw things up. We end up knowing 80% of what they’re going to tell us during a press release or an event because it gets leaked weeks or even months ahead of announcements. Apple on the other hand doesn’t seem to have this problem, but they have a much bigger one on their hands.
Apple’s next iPhone isn’t planned to be released until some time in September like usual, but we’re already hearing rumors for the next phone we’re only in February. The last 3 years or so the rumors make the next iPhone to be this spectacular device that might actually have some great features that Android devices have had for years. It’s gotten to the point where I get angry just reading the rumors for the next iPhone. We’ve been told for years now that the iPhone will have an OLED display instead of the crummy LCD that it’s had for years. Don’t forget about the curved screen that we’ve been told was going to be a thing! Am I really surprised that a lot of these rumors never end up being a thing? no, because these are the same people who took over 4 years to make a bigger phone while other companies were already doing it!
Apple’s iPhone line hasn’t been changed much in 3 years and if the iPhone 7s isn’t changed too much than it’ll be the 4th year.As of right now, The next iPhone is supposed to have an OLED screen, no home button, better screen to body ratio than previous models, a curved screen, among lots of other features. I personally have stopped using iPhones because nothing I want to change, changes. That being said, I wouldn’t mind giving the iPhone a shot if it changed things up a bit. Will this be new this time? Does it even matter? Will people buy the next iPhone if not much changes like usual? Be sure to check out Digital Trends iPhone 7s/8 rumors article for a full look at all of the rumors.
