According to Apple suppliers in Asia, Apple is working with Samsung to produce curved OLED screens expected to be available on the iPhone 8.
According to the Nikkei Asian Review, some of the designs of the iPhone 8 are slowly being revealed including size, length, and parts. This will be the first time Apple has used a curved OLED screen for the upcoming iPhone 8.
“Apple has ordered 70 million OLED curves from Samsung this year. Samsung will enjoy about $95 million in profits from Apple, which is expected to continue to grow”, director of IHS Markit – David Hsieh predicted.
According to Korea ET News, Apple has signed a two-year contract with Samsung Display for the production of curved OLED screens up to US $9 billion.
Based on this contract, Samsung Display will deliver 70-92 million curved OLED screens to Apple in 2017.
Still no information on whether the curved screen of the iPhone 8 will support some of the gadgets for the device or not. The iPhone 7 Plus is equipped with a slightly curved screen at the edge of the screen, but it does not function and just to beautify.
Apple plans to launch more mobile devices this year, marking the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, including the iPhone 8, iPhone X, or iPhone Edition.
