Report: Apple iPhone 8 to feature plastic, curved, OLED display
Apple's new iPhone for next year is widely expected to be a radical departure from the existing aluminium and glass design. A report from the Korea Herald indicates that the new display in next year's major new phone, currently dubbed iPhone 8 by the rumor mill, will be a plastic OLED panel that curves ‘all over'.This report reaffirms the idea of Apple introducing three new phones in 2017: one flagship OLED-display device and two less-radical models (iPhone 7s?) that resemble the existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 PlusIt's not clear whether the plastic OLED panel is what users of the phone would feel or if the plastic part is then covered with a glass layer on the iPhone 8. Apple has relied on Corning ‘Gorilla Glass' in all iPhones to date with glass displays typically considered as more premium than plastic materials.Curved glass is also used on the current iPhone and Apple Watch at the edges, so it's not clear why Apple would opt for a plastic OLED display with the 2017 model. The Herald indicates that the component is being manufactured by Samsung Display.
