Much has been said about the possibility that Apple will move to AMOLED displays and leave aside the LCD IPS panels that have worked so well for their iOS devices. The first step has already been taken with the Apple Watch, which mounts such a panel, and it seems that the iPhone could be the next to adopt such technology.
This is what KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the usual stirrer of Apple rumors, says, and this time he talks about the possibility of Apple launching in 2017 an iPhone with a 5.8-inch AMOLED screen , in the style of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Using this type of screen would mean a return to the design of the iPhone 4 and 4s, with a metal side edge and a glass back.
Kuo talks about two possible scenarios for that date . If the supplier of the AMOLED displays is able to meet the demand Apple will launch a 4.7 inch iPhone with LCD panel and a 5.8 inch iPhone with AMOLED panel. Otherwise the iPhone with AMOLED panel would remain as a third and more exclusive option and the two 4.7 and 5.5 inch models with LCD panel would be maintained.
Despite the fact that Apple has resisted AMOLED technology up to now, which despite having many advantages also has its defects, which in the long run will be corrected, sooner or later we will end up seeing an iPhone with this screen technology . Will it be in 2017?
