Apple iPhone 8 rumors: “All-Curved” OLED display

24 December, 2016 Apple

According to a latest report by the Korea Herald, the Apple iPhone 8 will feature an "All-curved" OLED display. Now, we have seen the dual curved display from Samsung on the S7 Edge and we have also seen an almost bezel-less design for smartphones from the likes of the Xiaomi Mi Mix and the Honor Magic, but we are hearing about the "All-curved" display for the first time. Although it is only speculation at the moment, we are guessing that it CAN mean at least one variant of the iPhone 8 will feature an "edgeless" OLED display that's curved on all the four sides.

According to the report,

"The OLED version of the new iPhone will all 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 Korea Herald.

This basically presents two problems; a display that has no bezel and is curved on all sides can become very difficult to use without triggering unwanted responses from the phone. We are hoping that Apple will somehow improve on the inadequate palm rejection tech that's in place right now on curved phones such as the S7 Edge. Secondly, the fact that plastic OLED was chosen in place of glass may not sit well with Apple customers, if the material doesn't feel premium to the touch. What do you think about all this? Let us know in the comments.
