Unlikely Rumor Says Apple Will Debut Two OLED iPhones This Year

Numerous reports from the past few months have pointed to the fact that Apple is working on three smartphones to announce later this year, one of which is the OLED iPhone 8. The other two devices are believed to be successors to last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

However, Chinese blog MicGadget claims to have talked to sources inside Foxconn, which have revealed that Apple is actually working solely on the iPhone 8 and a larger iPhone 8 Plus, while the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus won’t make their debut this year.

Both of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will have OLED displays and dual-camera setups, with the latter sporting a bigger size. While we can’t verify that the publication indeed spoke to people from Foxconn, we must categorize this latest rumor as untrue.

Apple will announce new iPhones this fall

Reports trailing back to spring last year have revealed that Apple will break its tradition of releasing a standard and a Plus model iPhone this fall and will include an anniversary device as well. The iPhone 8 has been said to be announced together with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, both of which will have a similar design as last year’s offerings.

Moreover, Apple is said to have concentrated its attention on featuring a new design on the iPhone 8, complete with the addition of wireless charging, AR features, and an OLED screen. When supplies become more available, Apple is expected to switch to OLED displays on all iPhones, which could actually happen next year. Thus, it has become general consensus that three iPhones will be released this year, and we doubt Apple made a switch to two iPhone 8 models so late in the development stage.

As far as we know, Apple will be announcing the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 during an event in September, while the latter device could see a delay of about two months, because of supply shortages of custom-ordered components.
