A Sunday report reaffirmed claims that next year’s “iPhone 8” will come in separate OLED and LCD versions, with all of the OLED models sporting curved displays.
A report confirms that Apple’s iPhone 8 will be on two variants, OLED which will have curved display and LCD.
Apple OLED panel will be coming from Samsung Display, according to The Korea Herald. The site also noted that Apple will use glass for LCD panels and plastic for the curved ones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Samsung’s curved OLED capacity has been estimated between 70 to 100 million units, that’s less than half of Apple’s annual iPhone sales, which makes the idea of OLED as a premium product.
The Korea Herald also noted that Apple may or may not use new technology, which enables the phone to respond when the user touch any side of the said deivce.
Several reports have confirmed that the company is working on three Apple iPhone 8 devices for next year 2017. The LCD will be sized 4.7 and 5.5 inch, while the curved OLED will be 5.1 to 5.2 inches. Another model could go for edge display which will force Apple to embed some of the components of Touch ID sensor.
