An interesting and recent rumor has suggested that this year we might get an iPhone with a 5.8-inch curved OLED display. It is an interesting rumor because Apple has never really been one for curved displays, and it is possible that maybe with the rise in popularity of Samsung’s curved display phones that there are some who expect Apple could follow suit.
However as it turns out, not everyone thinks that way. According to a report from MacRumors, they have been told by several analysts that they believe that a flat display will continue to make an appearance, even with the 5.8-inch iPhone. Instead the only curve that we can true expect would be around the edges where Apple is expected to adopt a 2.5D display, similar to that of the current design and the Apple Watch.
The report quotes IHS Markit analyst Wayne Lam who said, “We anticipate Apple will adopt a flat implementation of OLED design on their special iPhone model, which is analogous to the current 2.5D glass design.” Lam isn’t the only one who believes this to be the case as prior to this, other analysts such as KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo and Chinese research firm TrendForce have offered similar opinions.
In any case we guess this is just something we’ll have to wait and see for ourselves. Right now the rumors surrounding the 2017 are all over the place, but hopefully we’ll have our answers soon enough.
