Apple Orders 160M iPhone 8 OLED Panels

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with curved OLED display

The display subsidiary division of Samsung Electronics has now officially signed a deal with Apple Inc., to provide them with 60 million units of OLED display panels which we will be seeing in the upcoming next generation Apple iPhone. This would create additional space inside the device, so a larger battery could be incorporated.

Not surprisingly, the aforementioned stacked logic board design will reportedly be exclusive to Apple's flagship iPhone 8 model. Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities predicted the fanciest iPhone could bear a price tag of more than $1,000.

Sources suggest the special edition phone most likely to be called the iPhone 8 will come with a hefty price tag of over $, 1000.

With reports indicating the OLED iPhone screen is circa 5.5 inches, it seems that the "no bezels" rumor is true as its the only way the device would be able to be similar in physical width and height to a 4.7 inch iPhone.

Apple is also reportedly working on 3D-sensing technology. Maybe Apple thinks including the $9 adapter in the box was necessary for only one year.

Mr. Kuo says wireless charging will be a standard feature across the 2017 iPhone lineup, but a report from Mac Otakara disagrees.

The Cupertino giant is also rumored to be launching two other smartphones along with the iPhone 8 - a 4.7-inch (the iPhone 7s) and a 5.5-inch (the iPhone 7s Plus).

Considering the fact that Apple ships close to 200 million iPhones globally each year, the already placed orders for 160 million OLED panels makes it hard to believe that all the iPhone 8 variants wouldn't be receiving the OLED treatment. "I think it's rather good positioning on Apple's part".
