There is a massive downpour of rumors surrounding Apple Inc’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) upcoming flagship; the iPhone 8. The latest reports have it that the device will come with a radical new design, which means that it is ditching the current aluminum and glass design. It is all about a new feature that will give the Smartphone an incredible outlook given that it will adorn a plastic OLED screen, which will be all curved. Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (KRX:005930) will be at hand to make the OLED display for Apple’s device, a clear indication that the two have put their differences aside.
Evidently, Apple’s destiny is in excelling in meeting the expectations of its loyalists. There are speculations that Apple will launch three designs of which two will have a close resemblance to the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The other will be the model with the curved screen.
But will the plastic be used alone: The possibilities of other additions
There is a presumption that the plastic is flexible enough to allow for less breakable iPhone screen. However, as it is known, Apple is very keen on quality hence it is not clear whether or not a glass layer would be added. While Apple seems to be betting everything in excel, Mac Rumors adds that Apple will also bring on board a new touch-sensitive technology, which is meant to make the iPhone respond when the user touches any of its sides.
This may be seen as controversial innovation from Apple but from a positive perspective, it could end up to be a huge success if all falls into place. Apparently, it is not the first time that Apple is doing this kind of things. It has previously presented a controversial Touch Bar on its devices but nonetheless, some of its innovations the likes of the hockey puck mouse have ended up being a huge fiasco.
Could the iPhone 8 be in imitation the Galaxy S7?
Apparently, Galaxy S7 sports a curved display. Thus the fact that a curved display will also be sporting a high-end curved OLED screen triggers more questions on whether Apple’s device is imitating the Galaxy S7. Meanwhile, while this may have been the latest of rumor, ExtremeTech adds, “Recent reports point to Interflex, BH, and Samsung Electro-Mechanics as suppliers of the components, which will be used by Samsung Display to manufacture the panels used in the iPhone 8.”
