Despite the fact that there's still a long way to go for Apple to officially unveil its next flagship, the Apple iPhone 8, rumours have already begun flowing in thick. And it's not something new since it's the same case every year when it comes to Apple iPhones.

Apple Not Going to Skip iPhone 7s Will Be Launched Along With iPhone 8

Recently, reliable Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has revealed an interesting angle for what to expect from Apple's next year's iPhone event. He posted that the Cupertino tech giant will be launching three flagships instead of two with a 5.8-inch, more premium model with OLED panels joining the existing ones.

Rumour has it that Apple will be skipping the 'S' model next year in favour of the iPhone 8 owing to the tenth anniversary of Apple iPhone. However, Kuo now believes that the company will not be skipping the 'S' version.

Instead, it will launch two variants possibly, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus to make its presence felt in the mid-range segment.

The iPhone 8, on the other side, will remain to be the more premium variant among the three smartphones that will be unveiled at the iPhone's 10th anniversary.

In terms of specifications, the 5.8-inch variant likely to be called the iPhone 8 will feature OLED display whereas the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models likely to be called the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will still come with LCD panels.

All the three variants will be powered by Apple's A11 chipset. Also, Apple is rumoured to shift from metal body design to glass design at the front and back.

It is also rumoured that the upcoming iPhones will finally offer support for the wireless technology. However, at this point of time, it's unclear if all the three variants will offer support for this tech.
