Dec 21, 2016: Many rumors were floated in the market regarding Apple’s OLED screen for iPhone 8, and whether Samsung display will bag the order or LG. Now the latest is that Apple will use Samsung Display’s curved plastic OLED panels for its iPhone 8, which is reported by The Korean Herald.
This report may be true because it is in line with what was previously rumored that Apple plans its iPhone 8 with OLED display.
According to the latest report, Apple has already placed an order with Samsung Display to manufacture curved plastic OLED displays in millions. Samsung Display can supply a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple, a source told the Korean Herald.
It is also believed that the curved, plastic OLED display will be wrapped around the edges like the one seen on the Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone of 2016.
Apple may also use a ‘new sensing technology’ to make the smartphone different from those of its rivals. Patently Apple had earlier said that Apple was working on a patent, which would allow sensors to be fitted across the device. This would eliminate the need for buttons. Since the patent has not come through, it is unlikely to appear on the iPhone 8.
