Apple’s next iPhone may be almost a year away, however it looks like there will be significant changes to mark the ten-year anniversary of the iPhone with strong sources indicating that Apple has exclusively partnered with Samsung to make 5.8-inch AMOLED displays for its next year’s premium model.
Samsung has been selected to manufacture displays for the third and larger premium variant which will initially be produced in minimal quantities starting March, and thereafter production level will be picked up post May-June.
Reports have also suggested that the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone models won’t switch to OLED displays just yet, and stay on TFT-LCD.
The iPhone 8 is expected to have an all glass body, parting ways with the metal back and edges seen at the moment. Home Button being removed, with the display supporting fingerprint reading and 3D Touch. Might just also sneak in an iris scanner and support 3D photography… Who knows? Last but not least, The iPhone 8 is expected to sport advanced wireless charging that will not require the user to place the device on a charging station or even very close to it.
