iPhone 8 Rumors Are Confirmed Now
An executive at Japanese electronics company Sharp, which is one of Apple’s suppliers, recently confirmed the iPhone maker would be switching to OLED displays, according to a report in Nikkei.
We also heard that Apple is already testing wireless charging for iPhone 8, So we think we will get more from iPhone 8 then just an upgraded camera.
The publication reports that Sharp president Tai Jeng-wu, who is also an executive at Foxconn, which owns Sharp, said Apple would be switching to an OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display.
“The iPhone has been evolving and now it is switching from LTPS (low-temperature poly-silicon) to OLED panels,” Jeng-wu said, according to Nikkei. “We don’t know whether Apple’s OLED iPhones will be a hit, but if Apple doesn’t walk down this path and transform itself, there will be no innovation.”
Jeng-wu’s comments are in line with previous rumors we’ve heard about the next generation iPhone. Earlier reports indicate Apple will launch an all-glass iPhone with a curved OLED display. Unlike the LCD displays Apple currently uses, OLED allows for more flexibility, brighter colors and more efficient battery consumption.
