Apple Reportedly Wants LG To Enter Smartphone OLED Business

It would also mean the iPhone 7s range would have a feature the iPhone 8 would not.

Recent iPhone 8 schematic leaks claimed to show this same design in EVT status.

As most of you know, Apple has partnered with Samsung for the latter's OLED panels for the Cupertino tech giant's 2017 and possibly 2018 iPhone lineup.

According to the report by MacRumours, the device which is expected to be the iPhone 8 or the iPhone X, measures 137.54 mm tall by 67.54 mm wide. Readers may also be aware that rumors continually swirl about Apple potentially facing serious difficulties in getting this technology into volume manufacturing.

Apple this year joined the Wireless Power Consortium. It remains to be seen what features eventually make it to the device.

Although the iPhone 7 sold out within a week of hitting the market, many saw it as nothing more than a refreshed iPhone 6 - which has put some pressure on Apple to impress its users this year. Long battery life seems to be a very simple request, but what's the use of a feature rich phone when it can't even last long? However, in the renders showing the iPhone 8 after production, only the earpiece is visible, not the other components. The iPhone 8 release is expected to bring 3GB RAM for all of its models.

Woman fatally stabbed by Palestinian in Jerusalem, authorities say
The attack comes during the Easter and Passover holidays when police are on heightened alert because of the increase in tourism. Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks , the Israeli authorities say.

According to the report, a leaked patent talks about shock absorbers that will work on sensors and safeguard the device as it senses it falling from a height. He too speculated that Apple could remove Touch ID, but he believes it's more likely that Apple will put Touch ID on the back of the iPhone or delay production.

The upcoming iPhone will be 149.5mm tall, 72.49mm wide and 8.6mm thick, which is nearly similar to iPhone 7. The unusual lens configuration has so far beguiled Apple's avid fans, though speculations are high that the vertical cameras might have something to do with the iPhone 8's rumored AR capabilities. This will not only enhance the user experience, but will also give an edge over the company's rivals.

Similar reports from other analysts offered the same type of warnings, suggesting that Apple might be forced to delay the iPhone 8's in-store launch this year to deal with Touch ID-related supply issues.

Apple is known to bring in newer and attractive colour options.

All three devices are expected to have lightning ports that will support Type-C USB power delivery, this step will enhance the charging capacity of the devices.
