Apple's anniversary phone is not going to be a joke and the Cupertino-based company is making sure of that. Along with the string of design and specs rumors for the iPhone 8, the company is also said to be testing at least ten prototypes for the unveiling next year.
There is a lot of pressure on the tech giant to produce the best handheld that it has ever released. And, as Mac Rumors notes, Apple is getting by with the help of almost a dozen prototypes. However, the publication also explains that these prototypes might mean that the company will not release its highly anticipated version of an OLED display.
For a while now, it has been speculated that the iPhone 8 will ditch Apple's standard LED display and finally make the upgrade to an OLED screen. Not only would this feature make the smartphone thinner and lighter, but it would also give Apple more flexibility in terms of the units aesthetic. The downside is that these screens can be US$50 cheaper per device, thus making the anniversary iPhone even more expensive than those in the current market.
It has been reported by Tech Spot that Apple will work with Samsung to produce the OLED components. However, LG Display, Japan Display and Sharp are also said to be part of the production line and will therefore increase their numbers for the next years. The Cupertino-based company is definitely tapping into the best in the market.
With Apple's sales trend diminishing this year, the world is excited to know what kind of product will be released next year. Not only is the design expected to change, but the iPhone 8 is also sure to sport the best specs that the market can currently offer. By the looks of it, Apple is poised and ready to take center stage again.
