Multiple sources have claimed that Apple is planning to release iPhone 8 with curved display and new touch sensitive technology rather than flat screen and old touch technology.
iPhone is planning to launch a 5.5-inch “premium” version of its 2017 iPhone with an OLED screen and curved display which is found in Samsung Galaxy S7, one of the best smartphone display on the market.
“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”
Other rumors suggest Apple’s major iPhone redesign could include wireless charging and a glass body, no physical Home button, and an edge-to-edge, bezel-free display with embedded Touch ID fingerprint sensor and camera.
Apple’s annual sales of the iPhone series around 200 million units a year which is twice of Samsung which is 70 million to 100 million units.
No further details are forthcoming, but the source notes that Apple may ultimately choose not to adopt the technology.
