iPhone 8 release may have more Samsung help
Apple and Samsung have long been at loggerheads with a number patent disputes as each company tries to reign supreme in the smartphone world, but Samsung has also long provided Apple with internal components for its handsets. Now this year’s rumoured iPhone 8 release may have more help from Samsung.
Samsung has long used OLED displays on its flagship smartphones and with the Galaxy S6 we were treated to a curved display, and now a new rumour from a previously reliable source is claiming that Apple has ordered 70 million curved OLED displays from Samsung.
It is rumoured that Apple will be launching three new smartphones this year that also includes the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, but these will feature LCD panels measuring 4.7-inch and 5.5-inches respectively.
The iPhone 8 is claimed to feature 5.2-inch curved OLED display with a rumoured price of over $1000 or around £805 at today’s exchange rates. It is also claimed that Samsung will manufacture around 95 million of the displays in case the iPhone 8 orders exceed expectations.
Other claims for this year’s iPhone releases include wireless charging and the handset will finally do away with the physical Home button that has recently been seen on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
