2020 iPhones To Have Thinner 5.4, 6.7-Inch Displays
Apple is very likely to announce three new iPhones in September 2020 but according to a new report by Korea’s ETNews, they might not follow the usual screen sizes that we’ve become accustomed to. That’s because two will have a 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch display for the first time.
According to the report, the new iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will both use new Samsung technology called Y-OCTA. That, apparently, allows the touchscreen to be built directly into the OLED panel rather than being bonded to it. That would allow the display as a whole to be made thinner than usual.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that the overall devices will be thinner than current iPhones. In fact, Apple’s latest iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are slightly thicker than last year’s models, allowing for more battery life.
While the new 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch panels will be Samsung Y-OCTA displays, the iPhone 12’s 6.1-inch display will follow previous manufacturing methods with both LG and Samsung tasked with producing them.
If Apple follows its usual release cadence, we can expect the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max to all be announced in September 2020 with a release following shortly afterwards. We’re starting to hear more and more information about what analysts think will go into those phones so we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled in the coming weeks and months.
