Apple iPhone 8 to Feature Samsung’s Curved Plastic OLED Display

The Apple iPhone 8 may not be made of glass entirely.

    Despite the fact that there’s still a long way to go for Apple to officially announce its next iPhone, there have been overwhelming amounts of rumors already. While different reports pointed at various possibilities, the curved OLED display along with a glass design were among the most consistent rumors.

    But, according to the latest report by the Korea Herald, the chances are that the iPhone 8 may not feature an all-glass design. Instead, it will ship with a plastic OLED display produced by Samsung that curves 'all over.’

    People familiar with the matter told Korea Herald that “The OLED version of the new iPhone will be curved as Apple ordered all plastic OLED — not glass — from Samsung Display. Samsung is capable of supplying a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple.”

    The report also suggests that the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 may not be foldable, but the Cupertino-based tech giant may use new sensing technologies (on the curved OLED display) to set it apart from its counterparts (especially the Samsung Galaxy S8).

    “The upcoming iPhone may use new sensing technology, which enables the phone to respond when users' touch on any side of the device. But, Apple may not adopt this technology,” the report cited.

    Just a couple of days ago, a report surfaced online indicating that LG (Apple’s long time LCD screen supplier) is currently working on a foldable display which will be used in the smartphones scheduled to launch in 2018.
