The iPhone 8 is expected on the 10th anniversary device this fall. However, the new revolutionary technologies could possibly delay the
Apple iPhone 8’s release date by one or couple of months after it is revealed because of supply limitations.
Apple is apparently testing an all-new iPhone design with an all-screen on the front panel, curved glass and a stainless unibody steel frame. The revamped design features of the iPhone 8 mentioned by the multiple sources are similar to previous iPhone 8 rumors. On Monday, the Japanese technology blog Mac Otakara reported that the iPhone 8 would come with stainless steel frame to hold together the front and back glass panels of the smartphone.
As for the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, these devices are expected to equip with an LCD display panels, much like the previous rumors have suggested. For the Apple iPhone 8, the report claimed that Apple will use an edge-to-edge OLED screen display provided by the South Korean OEM Samsung, echoing a recent Nikkei report which stated that Apple placed orders for about 70 million OLED display panels from Samsung. However, the Bloomberg report said the Cupertino-based technology giant ordered around 100 million display panels from the South Korean tech titan. The DigiTimes reported recently Apple inked a $9 billion two-year contract deal with Samsung for OLED display supplies.
The report also noted that OLED display for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are much larger than that of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, respectively, released last year, but will have an overall touchscreen display size closer to the iPhone 7.
