Apple to release iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and a special model codenamed Ferrari in 2017
According to a report from China, Apple plans to uncover three new iPhone models next year. They are designated as D20, D21, and D22, with the first two likely to be branded the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The third is likely a heavily rumored high-end model with a glass design, a borderless OLED display with an embedded Home button, wireless charging, and other breakthrough (for the iPhone) technology. Reportedly, this model has the internal codename "Ferrari," which sounds quite respectable.

Supply chain sources also claim that this iPhone's internal logic board will be spread in two halves, connected with a ribbon cable. Board nr. 1 will feature the essential hardware, such as the A11 chipset and NAND flash storage, while the second board will house the cellular components. Additionally, the SIM card tray will be relocated towards the bottom of the handset as to free more room for other internal components. This is an idea borrowed from the iPad Pro.

This isn't the first time we've heard of rumors like these, so there are pretty good chances about their credibility. The months ahead are bound to tell us even more details about them.

I think the 7s will both get an A10s chipset and the Ferrari will get the A11. If this is true.

No, all the new models are going to have the A11, but the highest tier iPhone will be 100 more. So iPhone 7s, 7s plus, 7s plus plus at 650, 750, 850. This makes them the most profit because the silicon is pretty cheap and Apple saves but having to make just one SOC to produce in masse.

About the ''Ferrari'' BS rumor.
Anyone wanna bet with me, that this is just fake news to keep the APPL stock until the end of next year (because nothing will come until then)???
I mean bet, seriously!

I think it will be the red one. And they will charge 100+ extra for the colour with good marketing

Klinton u might have a point here
Given all the speculation leading to an eventual 2017 iphone 8 and 8plus and 8pro
I find it not at all surprised that apple will continue to rip off ppl by introducing iphone 7s
I remember back when iphone 6plus came out i bought it within a month for just 1100$, still the 2017 will pretty much be same in design to a 2014 phone
I think u r right that no special iphone will come out

I really hope that Apple decides to pack this next iteration of the iPhone with some innovations, but the first thing that they need to do is tighten up their software. It's been a buggy mess for too long. SoC aside (which Apple always knocks out of the ballpark, but it's been the only thing for quite some time now. Although, I am a fan of Force Touch and iMessage), Apple really needs to wow us this time, and break out of its complacency. The iPhone has been stagnant for a while now. Quit playing it safe Apple, and give us something that will shake up the industry. If not, iPhone sales will continue to slide, and that's not good for a company that relies on over 60% of its profits from iOS devices.

I'll probably get attacked (either directly or by cheap potshot, and probably through bringing up a company or OS that's not even part of the conversation) by some Apple priests for my comment, but I'm speaking from a place of knowledge and experience with Apple products for years, not some fanboy or troll that pretends to have experience with products that they've never used.

I have an Apple (iPhone and iPad), Samsung and Sony devices. I only love Apple's apps, chipset and the continuity it offers across all of its platforms like their computer, phone, tablet, and web (watchOS is not included because I don't like its UI and UX). Microsoft and Samsung's services are cluttered and confusing.

I like Microsoft's services and find them easy to use, and I enjoy using their products. I'm not into Samsung devices so much anymore, so I won't comment on that. Apple's continuity is a plus.

so i guess they'll do something in the line of Apple Watch Series 1 (iPhone 7S/7S plus) and Series 2 (iPhone Edition), both borrow processor and a few other features, but some will be exclusive for the high-end one

If this is true, it's safe to say it'll be another $100 on top of the 7S Plus. $1200 for the 256GB version, lol.

If true, this is going to completely wreck supply and demand. Everyone will be gunning for the higher end special model, which I'm sure will be in limited supply. My gut tells me that Apple will have overstock of the base models, while the special edition will be going for thousands of dollars on eBay.

Not interested in the 7s model since it looks the same. interested on the rumoured oled displays though.

A11 in GB4 should be at least 5000 single core / 8000 multicore speeds at a bare minimum. The A10X is slated to be 4200/6500 respectively. Lots of catch up necessary for the SnapDragon and Exynos in the single core area. From the way it looks, Android manufacturers are two generations behind in single core speeds. The S8 won't hit over 2800 in single core speeds next year.

The A-series processor will be featured within their Mac products next year. That is how fast these chips are...
