The Apple iPhone 7 has hardly been with us for a few months and the rumors regarding the next iPhone device have already started to hit the news waves thick and fast. As we already know from the rumors that popped up in recent rounds of rumors that the upcoming Apple flagship device will feature OLED display. This news of the next iPhone 8 supporting an amazing OLED display is surely to excite Apple fans. OLED is an advanced display technology, if it does indeed makes its way in the next flagship device, which is being bubbed the iPhone 8, it will surely be a great features that will have a positive impact on the device’s battery.
Now a new report has emerged out of a South Korean publishing house that the purported OLED display could actually be in curved form. Which you might have already seen on Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
There is also a chatter going on in tech circles that the next iPhone device will have at least one 5.8-inch screen size model as a high-end sole flagship iPhone 8 variant. And the curved display is being tipped for this high-end model only, according a source close with the matter told The Korea Herald.
The OLED version of the new iPhone will all be curved as Apple ordered all plastic OLED — not glass — from Samsung Display. Samsung is capable of supplying a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple
Nothing is being said or confirmed regarding who will be put in charge of providing these curved OLED panels for iPhone 8 since the sheer number of iPhone 8’s demand being projected could throw a big challenge to both the eventual supplier and Apple as far as manufacturing and delivering devices on time on such a large quantity is concerned. It’s being tipped that Samsung, Sharp and LG could all be given the order for the iPhone 8 display manufacturing.
Rumors are also circulating regarding the new and improved touch-sensing technology making its way into the iPhone 8. Details on the working of this new touch sensing technology is yet to be released. If Apple does decide to do away with the physical home button, then this new touch-sensing technology could be designed in a way to enable users to touch anywhere on the screen to unlock the device or to perform different tasks.
But all this is just in rumor phase and should be taken with a grain of salt. Share your view on this development in comments section below.
