The iPhone 7 was released last month and yet new rumors surrounding the iPhone 8 have already surfaced. According to a Bloomberg report, the iPhone 8 will be getting OLED displays manufactured by Sharp. OLED screens are a game changer due to them being the highest quality screens in the market, producing darker blacks and brighter whites on your display. They also consume less power while delivering a smoother experience.
Currently, companies like LG & Panasonic use OLED in some of their latest technology and you can see a demo of LG’s OLED screen featured on this article’s cover. This type of screen can be expensive to the average consumer so it will be interesting how Apple will price the iPhone 8 considering it will incorporate OLED technology into it. Bloomberg further adds that Sharp plans ”to start production of the mobile displays by June 2018.”
iPhone 8 is likely to be released on September 2017 at a higher price than the iPhone 7. According to TechRadar, there’s the belief that the iPhone 8 will have a curved glass back, a claim accredited to the CEO of the company responsible for the iPhone’s metal casing. Furthermore, there seems to be a consensus by conspiracy theorists that the iPhone 8 will feature wireless charging. This is not a far-fetched idea since Apple did actually look into such technology before, as reported by VentureBeat.
