It has long been rumored that Apple will add an OLED iPhone to its lineup in the future with Samsung supplying the displays. So far the company has confirmed nothing of the sort but a new note from a well-known Apple analyst suggests that not only will the company launch an iPhone with an OLD display next year but it’s also going to bump up the screen size on that handset to 5.8 inch, making it the largest display an iPhone has ever had.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that Apple is going to launch a new iPhone next year that’s going to have a 5.8 inch OLD display as well as a “completely new form factor.” Next year’s iPhone is also claimed to feature wireless charging and new biometric security features.
Apparently the OLED iPhone is going to have a design that’s similar to the iPhone 4 as it will feature a glass front and back with metal sides. Apple will use narrower bezels and a curved display to fit the 5.8 inch display in a form factor that’s smaller than that of the current 5.5 inch iPhone.
This iPhone is said to be unveiled in 2017 and there’s no word as yet what it’ll cost when it does arrive. None of this has been confirmed by Apple yet, the company hasn’t even hinted at any of this, so despite the fact that this analyst has a good track record take all of this information with a grain of salt for now.
