The iPhone 7 is not expected anytime soon, however, rumors about the possible look, features and spec sheet of this iPhone 6S successor can hardly be ignored.
In the latest set of rumors, it seems Apple is planning to get better in the area of display. In fact, the iPhone 7 is believed to be prepping a display screen that is a lot better than what Samsung Galaxy S7 is offering with its Super AMOLED panel. But of course, it is too early to tell whether this rumor will materialize or not because the next iPhone flagship is not expected until September this year.
According to display pros at DisplayMate, the upcoming iPhone 7 could feature the same screen technology that underlines the newly released 9.7-inch iPad Pro tablet. If this materializes, it will definitely be an exciting move by Cupertino thanks to the fact that the display quality on the small iPad is with no doubt the best as far as LCD displays are concerned.
This is not the best news for Samsung, which had received the title of the best display of the moment with respect to the newly released Galaxy S7. As far as DisplayMate is concerned, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro has much better display quality even when compared to the highly rated 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
iPhone 7S may feature OLED display panels
This year will see Apple release the iPhone 7 and probably iPhone 7 Plus to keep up with the usual trend of its upgrades. This will mean that next year will be the time for the S models, meaning we get to see the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
As the experts at DisplayMate claim in relation to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the upcoming iPhone 7 will feature a screen that has the lowest reflectance of any mobile device. As a result, users will be able to enjoy the best image colors and contrast even when in high ambient lighting conditions. Samsung Galaxy S7 reportedly manages a reflectance of about 4.6%, which is the same as what of the iPhone 6S. If Apple manages to squeeze the same screen technology used on the iPad Pro on this upcoming 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display panels, there are chances of having a screen reflectance of as low as 1.7%.
With Apple notorious with expanding its technologies to other devices, the experts believe that this LCD screen technology will make its way to the upcoming iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, something that would make the latter a smaller version of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
As noted earlier, the Apple iPhone 7 is expected to be released in September this year. This means that Cupertino still has some decent time to work on these panels. However, don’t expect anything related to OLED panels with the upcoming flagships, instead, this technology will probably show up in 2017 with the likes of iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
