If rumors are to be believed, Apple has placed an order for 70 million bendable Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels with Samsung to use in the next iPhone handsets.
The new premium iPhone 8 models, which are likely to be launched in late 2017, will be waterproof and can be charged wirelessly. It will be the first time when Apple will adopt a curved OLED screen for its iPhones, marking a major overhaul and generating high expectations for the model.
Apple is expected to launch three iPhone 8 models for the handset's 10th anniversary. The premium iPhone 8, which is believed will cost more than $1,000, will sport a slightly curved OLED screen. That panel is expected to have a screen of 5.2 inches.
The other two handsets, measuring 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, will adopt existing liquid crystal display technology without curved screens. Besides, the major new model will apparently pack a 3D sensor for facial recognition functionality.
However, neither Apple nor Samsung have confirmed the claims.
