Famous analyst expects the iPhone 7 to be Apple's thinnest smartphone ever

60

Although the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus haven't been announced yet, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who is known for often correctly predicting various new iPhone features) is already talking about the iPhone 7. Obviously expected to be released in the second half of 2016, the iPhone 7 could become Apple's thinnest smartphone ever.

According to Apple Insider, which had access to a "note" that Ming-Chi Kuo recently sent to investors, Apple wants the iPhone 7 to be between 6.0 and 6.5 mm thin. Even at 6.5 mm, the handset would be thinner than the iPhone 6, which, at 6.9 mm, is the thinnest iPhone to date.

As for the iPhone 6s - which should be announced next week, on September 9 - it's said that this will be slightly thicker than the iPhone 6 (around 7.1 mm), due to the use of a new, tougher aluminum alloy, and the implementation of Force Touch technology. Already used in the Apple Watch, Force Touch will allow future iPhone displays to differentiate between light taps and firm taps. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will use the same Force Touch implementation for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7.

Well, we're waiting to see exactly what the Cupertino company announces next week, and then we can really start talking about the iPhone 7.

P.S.: What you're seeing above is just an iPhone 7 concept.
