China's BOE May Become New Supplier For Apple

Apple will reportedly be celebrating their 10th iPhone anniversary by introducing three new iPhone models: two in the iPhone 7 series and a brand new iPhone 8.

Trendforce also claims that Apple will not be using a curved display in the iPhone 8, due to low yield rates and issues during drop tests. Now, it looks like Apple will bump up the starting storage space for its next-generation of iPhone to 64GB.

According to MacRumors, reputable Apple leaker and KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the premium iPhone 8 with the edge-to-edge 5.8 OLED display will have a "revolutionary" front-facing camera that has fully-featured 3D sensing capabilities. Said to feature a radical new redesign that will feature an edge to edge display and a TouchBar-esque "Function Area" towards the bottom, the iPhone 8 will likely usher in the largest refresh cycle in iPhone history. That sort of makes sense, because Mac Otakara recently reported that a new red color variant of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could be released as early as March 2017, and a 128GB variant of iPhone SE is also expected to hit store shelves next month.

Beyond this TrendForce believes the iPhone 8 will pack in 3GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. With this decision Apple may be bidding adieu to the iPhone's 32 GB variant, which is now the lowest storage option available.

However, such a massive screen-to-body ratio means some sacrifices must be made, and those sacrifices come in the form of the iPhone's trusty home button. Since then, the popularity of this smartphone has exploded from year to year, and even if the latest two models didn't bring too many big changes, fans still bought them.

TrendForce adds that most of the global production capacity for AMOLED smartphone panels will be used to fulfil orders from Samsung and Apple this year.

Conversing with journalists at a general meeting of the Korea Display Industry Association, LG Display CEO Han Sang-beom said that demand for LCD screens would remain consistent in the following couple of years, disregarding Apple's turn to OLED. "IPhone set the standard for mobile computing in its first decade and we are just getting started".
