OLED iPhone 8 pentru a afișa un ecran curbat și o nouă tehnologie sensibilă la atingere
Mai multe surse au susținut că Apple planifică un 5.5-inch “premium” version of its 2017 iPhone with an OLED screen alongside new models with traditional LCD displays, but today’s report underlines Apple’s intention to use a curved screen similar to that found in Samsung’s Galaxy S7, care a fost descrisă ca având cel mai bun display smartphone de pe piață.
“The OLED version of the new iPhone will all be curved as Apple ordered all plastic OLED — not glass — from Samsung Display. Samsung is capable of supplying a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple,” a source familiar with the matter told The Korea Herald.
Previous rumors outlining Apple’s intention to launch multiple iPhone models have been dogged by suggestions that it could delay adoption of OLED technology entirely due to supply constraints. Samsung is Apple’s furnizor unic de display OLED în 2017, with LG and Sharp among the companies tapped to ramp up production for 2018, but the latest report indicates that limited supply may indeed shape differentiation in next year’s 10th anniversary iPhone line-up.
Potrivit Crainic, Samsung’s curved OLED capacity for Apple is estimated at around 70 million to 100 million units. That’s in line with estimările anterioare, but it’s less than half of Apple’s annual sales of the iPhone series, which stand at around 200 million units a year.
The paper’s source goes on to state that next year’s iPhone won’t be pliabil, but in order to set it apart from Samsung’s phones it could feature new sensing technology which “enables the phone to respond when users touch any side of the device”. No further details are forthcoming, but the source notes that Apple may ultimately choose not to adopt the technology.
Other rumors suggest Apple’s major iPhone redesign could include încărcarea fără fir și un corp de sticlă, niciun buton fizic pentru acasă și o margine până la margine, fără ecran fără afișaj cu senzor de amprentă Touch ID încorporat și camera.
