iPhone 8 Latest News: Apple Scraps Heavily Curved Screen Design
One of the more persistent rumors about the iPhone 8's design is now being debunked. The buzz right now is that the flagship smartphone from Apple will no longer sport a heavily curved design. Instead, the iPhone will come with a flat OLED screen but with a slight curve along the edges.
Forbes reported that the long-rumored grand redesign is no longer in the plans of the tech giant after leaks surfaced. A leak courtesy of Nikkei described the iPhone 8 as having a screen similar to that of Samsung Edge handsets. The said smartphones from Apple's main rival sport slightly curved screens but the iPhone 8 will supposedly have an even gentler curve. The slight curve will allow the iPhone 8 to have around 5.2 inches of viewable display but that is about the only thing significant that can be said about the new iPhone 8 screen design.
As mentioned, the iPhone 8 will sport organic light-emitting diode or OLED screens which, ironically, will be provided by Samsung Electronics. Samsung along with Huawei and Vivo were the first companies to integrate curved OLED screens on their products. By the looks of it, Apple is yet to fully join the bandwagon. The reason why Apple decided to stay flatter than the others is because the company is rumored to be having a hard time making glass covers that will match the curved screens.
The iPhone 8 is expected to be costly with most guesses coming in at a price tag of over $1,000. This is because Apple seems intent on stocking its 10th year anniversary smartphone with all the high-end features that it can possibly integrate in the iPhone 8.
Late last year, rumors surfaced saying Apple is working on up to ten iPhone 8 prototypes. At least one of these smartphones supposedly has curved OLED screens. While this new rumor slightly contradicts the old one, it remains to be seen how Apple will truly proceed with the iPhone 8's design.
