Sharp CEO May Have Confirmed Next iPhone's OLED Display

Posted November 02, 2016

It is possible that this feature will be limited to the larger 2017 iPhone, much like how the iPhone 7 Plus has the dual-camera system that the normal iPhone 7 is lacking.

As such, we're expecting a lot from Apple when it comes to the iPhone 8, but at this early stage, it's advisable to take all reports and rumours with a pinch of salt.

With all these rumors, leaks, and speculations coming in, the 2017 iPhone 8 promises to be a huge upgrade over the current iPhone 7.

This product has already is been used by Apple competitors for years. Like other news that came before it, this recent information speculates about the next iPhone's design. The company's chosen to work with DCI-P3 instead, which in itself delivers remarkable results on LTPS screens. "It is a crisis but it is also an opportunity", Tai of Sharp, whose parent company is Hon Hai Precision otherwise known as Foxconn, said. The OLED screens give sharper color contrast than the LTPS screens.

As for its display, it seem Apple could opt for an OLED display, and we know that Apple could also offer a 5-inch version, which we personally feel will be a most welcome size option.

According to reports, the technology powerhouse is trying to introduce wireless charging into the next iPhone.

LCD displays are not uncommon among Android devices, just less popular. The iPhone 8 (or whatever Apple plans to call it) has been strongly tipped to incorporate significant changes in order to mark the tenth official anniversary of the first-generation iPhone model.

The industry source that claimed Foxconn is working on the technology added it would only materialise if the yield rate can be deemed profitable. And Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus suggest that the company sees a wireless future for its smartphone. While we think that such a move is highly unlikely, OLED for the iPhone has been in the rumor mill for quite a while. Apple has decline to comment on the matter.
