IPhone 8 won't feature curved OLED display after all

IPhone 8 won't feature curved OLED display after all

There is also speculation that the OLED display limited edition version will be called the iPhone X and not the iPhone 8.

So it looks like the iPhone 8 won't be as cool as we thought it might be. Check out the iPhone 8 concept in the video below and hit the link for more details.

While some rumors have claimed the screen will be curved, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, multiple sources are now pointing to a flat display. Considering it will Apple's first key step towards the new OLED technology, that hopes for curved display screen may indeed happen later on.

I suspect that once Apple introduces this rumored premium iPhone in its product stack, it is going to want to continue to have products at that price point in future generations even as technologies originally introduced at that premium price point trickle down into the more mainstream models. Apple faces easier year-over-year comparisons for iPhone sales in the March and June quarters, Milunovich said.

Apple is notoriously secretive when it comes to revealing features ahead of a launch, and Munster warns investors that market sentiment may shift as the rumor mill comes into play in coming months.

However, for Apple, the increased costs and decreased yield are incompatible with shifting tens of millions of units while at the same time keeping profit margins as high as possible.

iPhone 8 is definitely among the biggest smartphone announcements to be made this year. Though a flat design is still an option to proceed, some reports might be assuming that the next iPhone will have a curved display because of the flexible properties of OLED. Other early rumours that were dismissed included a glass back and the removal of the home button. Out of these, glass is a top contender since it will also facilitate wireless charging.

Unlike conventional LCD displays, OLED screens feature pixels that produce their own light. The new design will allow higher coverage area of the iPhone 8 and prevent accidental touch input.

We've seen some great iOS 11 and iPhone 8 concepts before, but Masne's work here is perhaps the most intriguing we've seen yet.

Meanwhile, BGR reports that the iPhone 8 could also feature an on-screen fingerprint scanner. While a handful of publications, including the Wall Street Journal, are reporting the device will have a curved screen, a growing number of industry analysts are speculating otherwise - Securities analyst Ming-Chi Ku and analyst Wayne Lam have both dismissed the notion of a curved screen.
