Both the new iPhone and iPad are reported to be integrated with the new display technology. Specifically, it is possible that both upcoming devices of Apple will feature a bezel-less design. This is among the other major changes that the tech company will do.
A Larger Screen For iPhone 8
According to the Fortune, Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn suggested that the iPhone 8 will have a larger screen than the iPhone 7. Business Insider reported that the iPhone 8 will offer a 5-inch screen. The iPhone 8 Plus will have a 5.8-inch display. This is a bit larger than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.
The change of the screen size may have something to do with the rumored bezel-less design of the iPhone 8. The obvious difference would be the curved display of the left and right side of the screen. For comparison, it is akin to the edges of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
This can be achieved if Apple will use the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen technology. Other smartphones already use this particular technology. But it would just be the first time for the tech giant if this pushes through for iPhone 8.
Analysts added that the plastic OLED screen will allow a curved bezel-less edge. Apple is yet to confirm this.
The New Apple iPad
Apple has already announced the release of its new tablets in March. According to the Digital Trends, there might be an iPad with a bezel-free 10.9-inch design. Though the screen size may be larger, the device will have the same physical size as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
Like in the case of the iPhone 8, such display indicates that it will be the end for the Home button. That is at the cost of having an edge-to-edge design. Apple has been tight-lipped with details about its new devices. Fortune further reports that according to a KGI Securities analyst, Apple is likely to offer OLED and curved display in the iPad in 2018.
