According to a new Barclays research note, all three iPhone models this year will be equipped with True Tone displays.
Apple debuted the True Tone display feature with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro model that it released last year. Basically, the True Tone display uses four-channel sensors that adjust the white balance of the display to match the color temperature of the lighting around you. It not only works indoors, but outdoors as well, helping improve sunlight legibility further.
On the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, and iPhone 7s Plus, Apple will reportedly be using a “full spectral sensing” ambient light sensor to accurately gauge the color temperature of the surroundings. These sensors will be supplied by AMS, an Austrian semiconductor manufacturer. In addition to the new iPhone trio, the True Tone display feature is also expected to make its way to the second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro model that is expected to be unveiled later this year.
Based on rumors and reports available so far, the iPhone 8 will be equipped with an OLED display and could feature a high screen-to-body ratio with very thin bezels on all sides, similar to the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The regular iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models will retain the same IPS LCD displays as their predecessors and are rumored to be very similar in terms of the design as well.
