The upcoming Apple flagship, supposedly called iPhone 8, will be the company’s first device sporting the OLED display panel while the upgrades to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will continue to carry the IPS LCD screens.
Suffice it to say that the future for the Cupertino giant lies in adopting the OLED screen technology for overall better display quality. In that regard, it is being reported that there will be three iPhone models Apple will release in 2018 and all of them will have the OLED screens.
It is not known yet whether all three of them will be completely new phones but we can safely assume that at least one of those will be an upgrade to the iPhone 8 (probably termed the iPhone 8S). This piece of information does lead us to believe that the American company might be completely moving towards the OLED display and that the upcoming 7S and 7S Plus models could very well be the last iPhones with the LCD screens. However, it must be understood that these two models will continue to be on sale for at least till 2019, but there may not be any new iPhones with the LCD screens.
This shall be one of the major shifts for Apple (including the much anticipated screen integrated fingerprint sensor) for its future handsets. Also, there could be two screen sizes for the 2018 iPhones – 5.28 inches and 6.46 inches – and it will be interesting to see how the company goes about implementing the same on the three phones. There shall be differences in other features to justify having three devices with two screen sizes.
While Apple has ordered OLED panels for their next flagship from Samsung, it is also said that LG is being roped in as well to increase the supply of the OLED screens for the future iPhones.
