Apple to switch from LCD to OLED for the iPhone8


Sharp’s CEO Tai Jeng-wu has spoiled it for the company. According to Jeng-wu, Apple has already placed the order. In response to the heavy demand, Sharp is set to build a new OLED manufacturing facility in Japan for an ‘important customer.’ Obviously, Apple.

While Apple has yet to confirm the switch, industry analysts believe the transition will happen next year for the iPhone8. The move is necessary for Apple to stay competitive in the smartphone industry. Other phone manufacturers have already adopted OLED display. Think of Samsung and the curved screen they offer.

What’s the advantage of using OLED over LCD screens?

  1. OLED screens will have a sharper color contrast and brighter screens compared to LCD.
  2. OLED screens will have a lower power consumption.

CEO Jeng-wu has already confirmed the availability of three different iPhones next year: 5 inches, 5.5 inches, and 5.8 inches.

Next year will also mark the 10 year anniversary of the first iPhone. To mark the event, Apple is expected to make some revolutionary changes to the traditional iPhone.

It looks like they are starting with the iPhone’s screen.
