The Japanese business journal Nikkei travelled in a time machine to bring us a rumour related to the iPhones of the future. The report collected by 9to5Mac indicates that Apple is planning to launch its first smartphone with an OLED screen in 2017 . Although in other occasions we knew that these plans of Cupertino’s firm would be carried out in 2018 or 2019, this report assures that Apple could do it before the expected time.
The report indicates that Apple reached an agreement with its suppliers Samsung and LG last December, agreeing on a time frame to increase production of OLED panels. This move would help to see if it is possible to reach high enough production levels, to launch an iPhone with this technology on the screen next year .
Nikkel also claims that the OLED screen smartphone would not have a curved construction redesign, because it will be launched next year, much earlier than planned. Let’s remember that Apple launches a new design of its phones every two years, and if this year the iPhone 7 is released, it is possible that in 2017 we will see a small variation of the device without changes in its design. In this way, the only really new part of the phone that Apple would present next year would be its OLED screen .
According to Nikkel, Apple is planning to use OLED panels and LCD panels for its equipment. Speculations from various media assure that possibly the firm would include OLEDs in the higher range equipment , while it would take LCDs to the other models.
