The lineup iPhone this year should be quite varied with a few variations in screen size. However, not every model will have the full feature set.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that this year's 6.1-inch iPhone will not support the technology 3D Touch. What is the reason? Price. Kuo believes the model will use a 'Cover Glass Sensor' (CGS) that will move the touch module from the display to the top glass. This means the display will become stronger and lighter, but will not support 3D Touch.
Kuo also believes that Apple will add a 'thin-film' sensor to the display, which will increase the price by $ 26. It is not known what this will change, or why the company decided to make these changes.
The increased cost of the display means that other technologies like 3D Touch will have to be abandoned. Other models will support the technology.
If you like 3D Touch and were planning on buying a new 6.1-inch model that will retail for around $ 650, this news will upset you.
Given the rumors, it can be assumed that the analyst's statement is true. Nevertheless, it would be nice if Apple still decided not to give up the technology, even if we are not talking about the flagship. In any case, a new design can always mean other new technologies.
