Although the iPhone 8 is still months away from its release, rumors about the upcoming smartphone continue to pour in. Much of the leaked information pertain to the purported AMOLED display that it will sport on its release. Now, a new report suggests that the iPhone 8 will come with a 5.8-inch AMOLED display.
According to supply chain makers from Taiwan, Apple has reportedly signed a deal with Samsung to supply next year?s iPhone displays. This includes the IPS LCD displays for the iPhone 7s and the 7s Plus as well as the AMOLED display for the iPhone 8.
Based on the report made by Digitimes, Samsung will be the exclusive supplier of all the displays for Apple?s next iPhone. It is also said that Samsung is capable of meeting Apple?s demands with its estimated 20 million units monthly production.
Production of the next generation iPhones will start some time on March 2017 with only limited runs. After which, production will be boosted, around May or June, to meet the projected sales numbers for September 2017.
The iPhone 8 is still nine months away from its rumored release date. Nevertheless, every day that passes is just another opportunity to hear something new about its rumored specs. That being said, there are rumors that production of the processor that will power the phone is experiencing technical difficulties. The issue pertains to the low foundry yields for the 10nm ARM processor from the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
TSMC quickly responded and denied any claims that it is having production issues with the new 10nm process technology. In fact, according to its corporate communications senior director Elizabeth Sun, the company is on track in terms of production.
Other rumors about the iPhone 8 specs include its supposed edge-to-edge curve display. This, in addition to a dual-glass body will bring forth massive cosmetic improvement to the phone.
