According to the rumors, 2017’s iPhones will finally be adopting OLED screens along with a brand new design. However according to Gabelli & Co.’s Hendi Susanto, it has been suggested that while the rumors of an OLED iPhone are true, it could be limited to “special edition” versions of the iPhone.
What does this mean? Basically it sounds like the situation with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, in which the Plus model has Optical Image Stabilization, while the 6s only has Digital Image Stabilization, in which the higher-end/more expensive model will have the “better” technology, at least on paper.
According to Susanto, apparently this is because Apple might not be able to get their hands on enough OLED panels to cover every single iPhone model, so it is possible that Apple might instead get enough just to cover the higher-end premium models first, before shifting to full OLEDs across the board the next year.
Like we said, Apple has done this before with the iPhone 6/6s and 6/6s Plus, not only in the camera tech, but in terms of display resolution as well. However we reckon the differences in OLED and LCD will be big and obvious enough where it could lead to some disgruntled customers, but either way it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt.
