No AMOLED Display For ‘iPhone 7,’ Power Efficiency Struggle Continues
iPhone 7 is said to come with a drastic design change. Sapphire displays and a top-to-bottom screen without a home button are some of the major changes expected from iPhone 7. That is the good part, but here comes the bad news:Advertisement
Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst, says that the display is something that might not change. The news was that the upcoming iPhone’s display will change to AMOLED screens from liquid crystal displays. He also believes that Apple will not adopt this latest technology until 2018.
How does that matter? As Forbes put it, “the issue is about power efficiency.” No wonder iPhone’s display is great, and it does an excellent job when it comes to colors and brightness, but AMOLED screens are important when it comes to improving the device’s battery life. When compared to the LED-backlit IPS LCD displays, AMOLED is more power efficient. As we reported in our of our iPhone 7 stories, the upcoming phone from Apple is working on a long-lasting battery, a battery that would run for 48 hours. With an advanced phone with no technology to save battery, the company has no other options than to pack the device with a powerful battery. How long this battery will last is another question that arises.
iPhone users would sit back and expect the new iPhone to be launched with drastic changes while watching the world switch to advanced technologies. We just hope Apple does not disappoint them this time.
