AMOLED To Make It On The iPhone With Samsung Catering 60% Of Orders Claim Sources
The upcoming iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus have become regular features of the news over the past couple of weeks and courtesy of the numerous leaks and rumors which have taken place so far, we've got quite a fair idea of what to expect on the smartphones from Cupertino this year. Apple's been seeing some tough times lately, primarily due to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus failing to capture market attention and now, looks like we might see heavy overhauls on their successors this year in September.
Samsung To Supply Up To 60% Of AMOLED Displays For The iPhone 7 Claims Analyst
The iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus have been rumored to come with several features that will end up changing the device quite a bit when compared to their predecessors. For starters, the larger 5.5 inch variant has seen consistent rumors related to a dual camera setup and taking a look at yesterday's iPhone 7 image leak, we see that Apple might also be introducing laser Autofocus this time around as well.
In addition to camera specifications, both the devices are also expected to come with design and minimal power upgrades, marking a nice change from last year's devices. The pair's display on the other hand has seen little information surface so far, with sources claiming that Apple might choose to skip over AMOLED this year in favor of 2017's iPhone launches. Today, another analyst is making similar claims with the 2018 iPhone expected to see the much needed display upgrade, instead of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.
According to UBI research and reported by the Korean media, its going to be Samsung's year for the iPhone 7s with the tech giant expected to supply up to 60% of AMOLED screens for the upcoming smartphones. Samsung's been using AMOLED in its gadgets for quite a while now and AMOLED on the iPhone would undoubtedly give Apple's flagships a nice boost in terms of content quality. The rest of the orders will be catered to by LG and Japan Display but where does that leave SHARP and Foxconn's merger, we're not sure as of now.
So looks like we're going to have do with design, camera and other minimal upgrades on the iPhone lineup this year and if you're looking for OLED on Cupertino's flagships, you're going to have to wait another year. All eyes now on September when Apple finally does release the gadgets so stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
