A new report leaves many questions unanswered. How would that tiny battery inside the upcoming AirPods wireless charging case provide sufficient power for your iPhone? Is this the same case that Apple previewed alongside iPhone X last year? Color us puzzled.
Piggy-backing on KGI’s report alleging mass-production of iPhone 8 could be delayed to as late as October-November, Nikkei confirmed today that delivery delay is to be expected as the company’s component makers “strive for perfection”.
Apple has placed a huge order for seventy million bendable organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels with Samsung’s display-making arm for use in iPhone 8, Nikkei reported Monday. Apple and Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, signed a deal last year to supply 100 million OLEDs for iPhone 8. In February 2017, Apple contracted Samsung to build an additional 60 million OLEDs for a total of 160 million units in 2017.
Contradicting a recent report, Japanese outlet Nikkei Asian Review wrote Wednesday that Apple’s rumored 5.8-inch iPhone will have a display based on active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) technology that’s slightly curved on the sides, but not as curved as Samsung’s Galaxy series.
A source familiar with the handset’s design said the curve of the iPhone 8 screen will be “gentler” than the screen curvature of Samsung’s Edge handsets because of the challenges of making curved glass covers to match screens.
