At the moment, consumers and fans alike are still knee deep in rumors pertaining to the iPhone 8. That is why it is quite surprising if we start to hear news about the next phone in line from Apple. However, The Investor clearly believes otherwise. In fact, it just reported that Apple has agreed with Samsung for the supply of OLED displays for the iPhone 9.
As sketchy as it may sound, the report claims that Samsung will be supplying all the OLED displays for next year’s iPhone devices. On top of that, it seems like the phone will both get size increases as the reported displays are bigger than current iPhone devices.
In the said report, the regular iPhone 9 will have a 5.28-inch OLED panel. Meanwhile, the iPhone 9 Plus is to carry a much bigger 6.46-inch OLED display. Perhaps it will sound crazy but it seems like Apple is jumping onto the big-screen hype train.
Samsung is said to ship around 180 million displays for next year’s iPhone.
Right now, many Apple fans are still waiting for news about the iPhone 8. The phone is said to introduce a plethora of technological improvements including augmented reality and 3D facial recognition.
There are numerous reports suggesting that Apple might delay the release of the iPhone 8 due to manufacturing issues. However, it seems like all of that has been sorted out. New reports claim that production will start very soon and that it is still set for a September unveiling with the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.
It is more than likely that, even though it will be more expensive, more consumers will opt for the said phone. It will be quite interesting how the phone will perform in the market knowing that other phone makers like Samsung are also trying to come up with phones to match the iPhone 8.
