Anniversary iPhone Said to Feature Flat Display, Despite ‘Curved’ Screen Rumors
Apple is expected to announce three new iPhones this year, including a revolutionary iPhone Edition or iPhone 8, which will see a complete redesign and the introduction of new features. Rumors on the upcoming phone continue to surface, the most recent ones suggest a flat display.
IHS SMarkit analyst Wayne Lam revealed for MacRumors that Apple “will adopt a flat implementation of OLED design on their special iPhone model, which is analogous to the current 2.5D glass design.” The analyst researches the supply chain of smartphone makers such as Apple.
“Much like the recently announced LG G6, we anticipate a touchscreen with a new longer aspect ratio design to take advantage of higher coverage area of the iPhone in its entirety. This new design language is expected to become the trend for 2017, as we all anticipate Samsung’s reveal later this month,” he added.
