iPhone 8 could feature edge-to-edge curved display
This is still too early to talk about iPhone 8, the next iPhone that’s slated to roll out in September 2017. Irrespective of the release date, rumors are ripe – the latest having that the iPhone 8 will be released with an OLED edge-to-edge curved display supplied to the Cupertino tech company by Samsung. The latest report coming from Korean media suggests Apple has ordered all plastic OLEDs (not glass) from Samsung Display.
Apple has been using displays made from glass substrate until now, but according to the latest reports, iPhone 8 could replace that for plastic OLED, since plastic can be curved to give the edge-to-edge round display. According to the report carried by Korean media, Samsung has prowess to supply 100 million of curved OLED displays made from plastic substrate.
If you were expecting a foldable iPhone next year, the report turns the speculation down, suggesting the iPhone 8 to simply feature a rounded display – it won’t be a foldable phone. It is not clear however as to if the iPhone 8 will only be curved to the sides or at the top and bottom also.
We will track the developments and reports relating to this very closely and will update as and when we have information. For now, let us know what you think of this alleged move from Apple.
