Posted By:

For now we're not exactly sure about the next-generation iPhone. Most of the leaks from last month were reportedly fake it seems, as a new report from Korean financial analyst group KGI Securities, says Apple will not announce the iPhone 6S, instead we might get to see the iPhone 7.

The prediction comes from KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a respectable track record at reporting on Apple's upcoming plans.

He says that Apple will incorporate the capacitive Force Touch technology used on the Apple Watch in the next-generation iPhone (dubbed, "iPhone 7"). He further added that that said feature would be significant to differentiate that will set apart the iPhone 7 from the competition.

According to the analyst, the Force Touch sensor's hardware design will reportedly be different from that of the one used in the Apple Watch and the recently unveiled 12-inch Retina MacBook.

"We believe that iPhone's Force Touch sensor doesn't directly detect the pressure applied by fingers," says Kuo. "Instead, it monitors the contact area on which the finger touches the screen to decide how big the pressure is.

"There are two possible structural designs for Force Touch from a technology viewpoint. The Force Touch sensor can either be placed between the cover lens and the In-cell touch panel or under the In-cell touch panel's backlight, he adds further.

For now we know they have a few surprises up their sleeves, including the design and possibly the release date, as well as the chance that we could be seeing a low priced iPhone (dubbed, "iPhone 6C").
