New report claims that Apple will call its 2017 handsets the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus

Last month, KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo said that Apple would be releasing three handsets next year, including the Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus. In addition, there will be a special 10th anniversary edition of the phone sporting an OLED display, an all glass front and back and a Touch ID button embedded in the front screen.

A fresh report from Japan published yesterday says that Apple will release just two phones next year, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. And to further disappoint those who were looking forward to something along the lines of the Xiaomi Mi MIX to be unveiled by Apple in 2017, next year's phones will look just like this year's models except that they will be powered by the A11 chipset. And next year's lineup will reportedly include a red version of the two iPhone models.

Of course, Apple might have deliberately spread this rumor to call off the hound dogs sniffing under every rock for clues about a so-called 10th anniversary iPhone model. Until Apple actually unveils its 2017 iPhone handsets next September, we just need to keep in mind that anything is a possibility.

Just because they name it the 7s doesn't mean they won't change the design, even Apple can't be so stupid as to use the same design for 4 years straight.

Well damn, their fans are dumb as hell lol. I'm the type of person who can't buy a phone of the same design twice. Apple does have a new person in charge of next year's iPhone design so hopefully it will be different.

May happen but not likely. Apple is profit focused over anything else which has worked very well for then for many years. The change is now though that profit is replacing product value on a slow curve. There were already discounts on the latest devices to drive sales which never happened before. In a small way this has to do with other OEMs selling their devices with premium specs and design at negative margin to out pressure on the market. Apple is doing the least amount of design effort now to minimize manufacturing costs to continue profit goals driven by price reductions and more importantly a potential move to the US for manufacturing.

Don't talk about typos when you can't determine "to" from "too".

They will have the 7S and a new model come out next year. They don't want any leaks for competitors to see...

Samsung is making the screen and a bunch of other parts. Pretty sure Samsung knows what the phone will basically look like.

They will try. They often patent designs that are already patented. System is broken all around.

Apple will continue to name their devices in the same manner since the beginning (with the exception of the 2G to 3G).

This could really hurt them if they do this. Everyone is expecting a new design.
