Apple iPhone 8: Device May Feature Samsung’s Curved Plastic OLED Display
Apple may take little more time to officially announce the iPhone 8. But the most consistent rumors may include a curved OLED display with a glass design.
The Device Might Not Have An All Glass Design
Instead of an all glass design, the iPhone 8 may ship with a plastic OLED display that curves all over. This display is produced by Samsung. In fact, Samsung is capable of supplying 100 million units of OLED display units to Apple. Apple has already ordered plastic OLED instead of glass, Gizbot reports. It is also speculated that the upcoming Apple phone might not be a foldable device as Apple may use some new sensing technologies.
A Word On Sensing Technology
It is because of the sensing technology that the Smartphone responds while it is touched by the user on any side. Apple may drop this technology for the iPhone 8. LG which is Apple's long time LCD screen supplier is said to be working on foldable display which is expected to be used in Smartphones that will be launched in the near future.
Apple Is Currently Working On Three iPhones To Be Released Next Year
It has been reported in the past that Apple is currently working on two LCD models with 4.7 inches and 5.5-inch screens. There is also a curved OLED product with 5.1 to 5.2 inches of screen. These models may use end-to-end display, hence Apple might be forced to embed some components like the Touch ID Sensor, Apple Insider reports.
Apple may celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone while launching the iPhone 8. Few of its features may include a radical redesign with an edge to edge display. There shall be no bottom or top bezels where the front camera and Touch ID fingerprint sensor is placed. In fact, the touch ID and camera may directly be built into the display.
