iPhone 8 Could Feature A Curved Edge OLED Panel On Both Sides By 2017


We have long heard how Apple is finally going to make a switch to OLED panels in 2017 when its iPhone 8 rolls out. However, it appears that an OLED panel incorporated on an iPhone 8 is not going to be only change coming through.

iPhone 8 Reported To Feature A Dual Curved Edge OLED Panel For The Year 2017 – Several Perks Of Using This Display

According to the latest report from IHS, Vivo announced its Xplay 5, which features a 5.4-inch OLED display that’s curved to the side, much like what you see in a Galaxy S7 edge. In the future, this technique is most likely going to be used by other manufacturers as well and that includes Apple. In addition to the curved OLED panel, iPhone 8 has also been rumored to be incorporated with a wireless charging option, which would present a great deal of convenience for us.

By now, Apple most definitely have noticed that LG’s subsidiary, LG Innotek, is working on wireless chargers that can deliver up to 15 watts of power to smartphones. One thing that we fear will be a thing of the past is the iconic home button. Lots of Chinese manufacturers have attempted to be replicate that ‘all important’ home button on their own devices, and we believe that to reduce the overall thickness of the iPhone 8 family, the home button must be removed from the equation.


Furthermore, iPhone 8 is rumored to feature a massive 5.8 inch display, and with change, Apple will start to incorporate OLED screens instead of LCDs. In a nutshell, OLED screens have several advantages, which will be covered in a later topic, but its primary perk will be that it will deliver sharper images and consume less power, leading to improved battery life. Those are not the only improvements that we will be seeing in the next iPhones.

Since battery life will be greatly improved, you what else will thoroughly improve your iPhone 8’s battery life experience. The A11 SoC; it has been rumored that this chipset is going to be manufactured on the 7nm process. Before we share our optimism with you guys, successfully producing a hefty yield of 10nm FinFET is not without its challenges, but according to the latest industry news, TSMC has something else in mind to counter this. The firm will most likely use multi-patterning lithography at 7nm rather than EUV, which was once labelled as a savior for the semiconductor industry.


Looking at all of these changes, the upcoming iPhone 8 is expected to don one heck of a makeover, but we are going to have to wait a while for that. What are your thoughts on the smartphone? Let us know your thoughts right away.
