Although Apple is expected to have its next iPhone 8 integrate a 5.15-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2K, the company is ignoring these plans to include a curved screen in the new device due to problems discovered in the evidence, according to research published last Tuesday.
The curved glass has suffered both in terms of production performance as well as in drop tests, according to TrendForce that cited sources in the supply chain. Normally Apple has always been implicated in rumors about the adoption of curved screens similar to those of Samsung's Galaxy S7 Galaxy. In fact, the company is believed to have signed a $ 4.3 billion deal to buy Samsung OLED panels. The iPhone 8 will use instead the same 2.5D glass for its screen that is already on devices such as the iPhone 7, they said from TrendForce. In that case, the screen should be flat except for the rounded edges.
The research firm at the same time reinforced the rumors that have been made on the screen at other times, including that the device will not integrate a physical start button, as until now, in favor of a virtual one, which will help it to be more compact, to the point that despite its large screen, it could be a size equal to 4.7 inches iPhone 7, instead of the iPhone 7 Plus screen. You should also incorporate 3D facial recognition, possibly as a replacement for the Touch ID.
It is also said that Apple is producing two iPhones based on two LCD sizes at 4.7 and 5.5 inches just like its predecessors. In other places, these devices have sometimes been named as the "iPhone 7s" and "7s Plus".
All rumors … until final news comes from Apple.
