In our previous article we spoke about the iPhone 7 and what may differ from the iPhone 6S. In this article we’ll be focusing on the new iPhone 7 Plus display features that will be available on the larger handset planned for 2016. We’re hearing that Apple Inc is looking to make more of a splash in the Phablet market which is pretty consistent with the new trend of what consumers are specifically looking for with bigger, better, thinner, and lighter smartphones.
As you’d expect, all of the features mentioned in the previous article apply to the 7s Plus too, but there are some changes that will only apply to the iPhone 7 Plus. As an added bonus, find out the latest rumors on the battery specs rumored in the next generation iPhone.
Bigger iPhone 7 Plus Display
The iPhone 6S Plus has a 5.5 inch display. We don’t think Apple will increase the display size of the iPhone 7 Plus, but we do think it’ll remain a decent chunk larger than the standard iPhone 7. We’ve been hearing that Apple is looking at going with a 5.8” display for the 7 Plus to rival that of Samsung’s newest Note and Galaxy S8 which will debut the same year. If the current rumors are true, expect to see a huge swing of consumers who are now looking for bigger, Phablet style smartphones.
Thinner and Lighter iPhone 7 Plus
This is one of the iPhone 7 Plus features that should get the most attention from Apple. The 6S Plus and the 6 Plus were a tad bit thicker than the standard variants and this thickness added to the weight too. Hopefully the iPhone 7 Plus will have a slightly thinner build quality so that it better compares to the iPhone 7.
Part of the reason why Apple increased the thickness of the previous Plus variant iPhones was to increase the durability of the devices. This was a huge issue and led to the whole BendGate trend, but hopefully Apple will have researched a way to make the iPhone 7 Plus more durable without increasing its thickness too much.
Better iPhone 7 Plus Display – 1440p
The iPhone 7 display will be improved but we believe the iPhone 7 Plus display will be improved even further. The iPhone 6S has a 720p display whilst the iPhone 6S Plus has a 1080p display – we believe the iPhone 7 Plus will feature a 1440p display.
Better Battery Life
If we’re lucky we may see a 3,500mAh battery on the iPhone 7 Plus – the iPhone 6S Plus already has a 2,915mAh battery capacity and we only see improvements being made in the future.
