iPhone 8 to Come With Flat Screen, Not Curved OLED Display. We have informed our readers about the upcoming iPhone 8. First it was being rumored that iPhone 8 might come with a curved OLED display. But now its seems that Apple is unlikely to introduce the next-gen iPhone with curved display. Rather the company could still be going with flat screens. It will stick to flat screens specifically for its new iPhones, rumored 10th anniversary iPhone or the iPhone 8.
MacRumors spoke with smartphone supply chain researcher and analyst Wayne Lam of IHS Markit about Apple’s new iPhones for 2017. On the basis of Lam’s statement, it can be said that there won’t be a new iPhone with curved display, as claimed earlier by reports.
iPhone 8 to Come With Flat Screen, Not Curved OLED Display: Wayne Lam Reveals
“We anticipate Apple will adopt a flat implementation of OLED design on their special iPhone model, which is analogous to the current 2.5D glass design.”
He further added.
Before, rumors were being circulating that Apple is designing a special iPhone with a curved 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display. The iPhone 8 is said to be the tech giant’s handset to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its famous smartphone series. But Lam’s statement contradicts the guess. That the iPhone 8 will come with a curved display same as that of Samsung Galaxy phones.
Instead, Lam said that users can anticipate a device that’s much similar to LG’s G6 flagship phone.
“Much like the recently announced LG G6, we anticipate a touchscreen with a new longer aspect ratio design to take advantage of higher coverage area of the iPhone in its entirety. This new design language is expected to become the trend for 2017, as we all anticipate Samsung’s reveal later this month.”
Wayne Lam also added that the next-generation iPhones may have a Touch ID or fingerprint scanner embedded into their display panels. All of this will be confirmed when the new iPhone is introduced. So let’s wait and see what other interesting update we get to hear about the upcoming phones. Till that keep visiting our website for more details and information.
