The iPhone 8 rumors are pretty much all over the place, with some saying Apple will make the full switch to OLED, while others are claiming that Apple will have an iPhone variant that sports the OLED display, while the rest will continue to use LCD. Whether or not this is because of shortage of OLED panels or by choice is unclear.

Now according to a report from The Wall Street Journal (paywall; MacRumors), they are claiming that their sources have told them that Apple is expected to launch an iPhone with a curved OLED display, but they claim that this iPhone will be a “special” iPhone that was created to celebrate Apple’s 10th iPhone anniversary.

As for the other iPhones, Apple is expected to continue the traditional cycle where this year we can expect the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus which will sport regular LCD displays, although whether or not they will see a change in their design remains to be seen. The report by the WSJ seems to be in line with KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who had previously predicted the release of at least 3 iPhones this year.

It does look like this release could further fragmentize the iPhones which is quite unlike Apple, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime do take it with a grain of salt.
