Apple will reportedly add a third form factor to 2017 iPhone lineup
According to a Mac Otakara report, based on the information shared by sources within Apple's supply chain in Taiwan, a third form factor will be added by Apple to its iPhone lineup in 2017.
Specifically, as per the report, Apple will likely launch a mid-sized 5-inch iPhone model in 2017; thereby marking the addition of a third form factor to the handset. The 5-inch variant of the 2017 iPhone will boast the same internal components as the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants which will likely be called ‘iPhone 7S’ and ‘iPhone 7S Plus.’
With the report suggesting that the specifications of the 5-inch model of the 2017 iPhone will be identical to those expected from iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus, it is apparent that the addition of the third form factor of the handset will merely be an extension of the next-generation iPhone lineup.
Moreover, it is also rumored that the 5-inch variant of the 2017 iPhone will feature a dual-lens camera array with iSight modules, which will have a vertical arrangement instead of the horizontal configuration which Apple introduced with iPhone 6s Plus.
However, it is not yet clear whether the mentioned design change will also be implemented by Apple for the iPhone 7S Plus, and potentially the iPhone 7S, model as well.
