iPhone 16 Series: Thinner Bezels and Bigger Screens on the Horizon

Apple's upcoming iPhone 16 lineup could boast significantly slimmer bezels thanks to a new technology called Border Reduction Structure (BRS). This innovative approach utilizes rolled-up copper wires beneath the display panel, minimizing bezels for all four models.

Reports suggest that Samsung Display, BOE, and LG Display, Apple's display suppliers, have acquired this BRS technology. However, mass production hinges on achieving a high yield rate during manufacturing.

While the base iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus might retain their display size, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are rumored to get slightly larger screens. Market analyst firm Omdia predicts a 6.3-inch display for the Pro model and a 6.9-inch display for the Pro Max. Both Pro models are also expected to utilize LTPO technology for enhanced performance, similar to their predecessors.

However, rumors of under-display camera technology (UDC) to eliminate the "notch" on iPhone 16 models might have to wait. Omdia's Kang Min-soo suggests Apple's efforts with UDC might be delayed until 2027.

Despite the lack of UDC, anticipation for the iPhone 16 series remains high. Consumers are eager to see Apple's BRS technology in action, offering thinner bezels, larger screens, and a more immersive viewing experience.
