There’s certainly been no lack of rumors and reports surrounding the iPhone 8 as of late, and this new one seems to indicate that one of the biggest questions surrounding the phone has been confirmed…
According to the Korean Herald (via The Investor), Apple and Samsung have struck a deal where the latter will supply the former with 160 million OLED displays for the next-generation iPhone. The deal, reportedly worth $4.3 billion, will supply the iPhone 8 with one of its profound features that’ll make it stand out against its brothers who will continue to use LCD panels at least for the time being.
The report doesn’t go into detail regarding the OLED panels other than to say an additional 60 million will be supplied on top of the already obtained 100 million currently in Apple’s possession, but other rumors suggest its size will either be 5- or 5.8-inches, be enclosed in a glass body, and likely feature a resolution bump from the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus who feature 1334×750 and 1920×1080 pixels, respectively. In addition, the iPhone 8 is expected to have wireless charging, but rumors surrounding this matter have been pretty murky so far.
All in all, it’s looking more and more like Apple’s special 10th-anniversary iPhone will sport an OLED display. Of course, we won’t know for sure until September when it’s unveiled, but with more and more reports like this surfacing regularly, it may be safe soon to start placing bets.
