Last Tuesday, a reporter from Nikkie Asia Review reported that Archival Apple ordered 70 million display panels that the South Korean giant specialized in for the said upcoming release of another iPhone and this time it's iPhone 8.
The reporter said that Apple has placed orders for bendable organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels to be used by 70 million handsets for iPhone 8. OLED is said to offer brighter displays and better power efficiency crystal displays of which Apple possibly changed their spec.
Talking about Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus the Samsung's newest released used OLED displays. The said iPhone 8 and the two new phones will be launch by Apple expected later this year. It could also possibly mean that the said iPhone 8 is one of the expensive models.
We all know that it is the first time that Apple will use OLED and it's more controversial because it's bought from the rival company Samsung. IHS Market analyst David Hsieh says that the order for 70 million units of OLED panels is in line with his expectations. He also added that Samsung is expecting to produce 95 million units for Apple in 2017, in case demand exceeds expectations.
But some analysts and enthusiast have said it's not likely Apple will sell all 70 million OLED iPhones this year looking at previous performance. In the fiscal first quarter, which ended Dec. 31, Apple sold 78.2 million iPhones from the latest iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus models and older versions.
The leaks and reports all over the internet suggest that the newest iPhone 8 could be the most advanced yet with its new features from the newest front facing the camera with a 3-D sensor. Analysts can tell whether the said iPhone will not be salable or it will not be that much salable this time on, but they are still optimistic and expecting a rise in iPhone sales.
