This year Apple will unveil a new jubilee iPhone 8 (or iPhone Edition) that should receive the new OLED display “edge to edge” with a diagonal of 5.8 inches. According to analyst firm JP Morgan, referring to close to Apple sources, the smartphone display will be flat.
The newspaper published a number of insights about the new iPhone 8, which previously appeared in various media. In particular, it is reported that the new flagship Apple will get a flat OLED display, not rounded, as in the recently presented Samsung Galaxy S8.
Prior to this, informed sources claimed that the screen of iPhone 8 is curved on the sides. It seemed logical, given that the supplier of OLED panels will be Samsung, which has honed the technology in their devices the Galaxy series.
But now experts, who spetsializiruyutsya on projections related to supply chain manufacturers claim that the next iPhone will get a flat-panel display covered with protective glass 2.5 D.
It is also noted that the next iPhone will support a new trend started by LG G6. We are talking about the extended screen with an aspect ratio of about 2:1 (or 18:9, as claimed by LG). Similar aspect ratio and is presented on the eve of the Galaxy S8.
Also, the report indicated that the next-generation iPhone may lose the usual Lightning connector, but instead it’s standard USB-C, which is already used in the MacBook. In this case, the wording is ambiguous, and it is possible that we are talking about replacing the port is not in smartphones and power adapters that will allow owners of the new iPhone can charge a mobile phone from MacBook with the help of standard cable.
