In line with previous reports, The Wall Street Journal today said Apple's rumored iPhone 8 will feature a curved OLED display supplied by Samsung.Tuesday's report corroborates previous claims from KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo that Apple will release three devices this year: Two "S" cycle iPhones with LCD displays to succeed the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as a special "10th Anniversary Edition" iPhone 8.

Apple Inc. has decided to adopt a flexible display for one model of the new iPhone coming out this year and has ordered sufficient components to enable mass production, people familiar with the matter said. According to WSJ's anonymous sources, Apple will drop the traditional home button on the iPhone 8 in favor of a distinct touch-enabled area on the chin of the handset, also corroborating Ming-Chi Kuo's claims of a "function area" below the new iPhone's main display.

Additionally, in a new claim likely to cause much debate, the paper reports that Apple will replace the Lightning connector with a USB-C port. Indeed, all of the next iPhones are said to feature a "USB-C port for the power cord and other peripheral devices instead of the company's original Lightning connector".Over recent weeks, reports have clashed over which models will include several purported new features.

For example, citing "reliable sources" within Apple's supply chain, Japanese blog Mac Otakara most recently claimed that only the OLED model will adopt glass casing and wireless charging capabilities, contradicting a Nikkei report and analyst Kuo's repeated claims that all 2017 iPhones will feature an all-glass design and wireless charging.Further muddying the waters, Mac Otakara made no mention of the Lightning port being dropped, despite the fact that a USB-C connector would allow newer MacBook or MacBook Pro owners to connect the iPhone 8 to their laptop straight out of the box.

On the contrary, Mac Otakara's sources claimed Apple's Lightning to USB-C Cable would remain an optional purchase, which just goes to highlight the odd situation that newer Mac owners could find themselves in, should the next iMac and Mac mini models also adopt exclusively USB-C ports, as they are expected to do so. The other possible scenario is that Apple replaces the current USB-A connector on the end of the iPhone Lightning cable with USB-C.

With an edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 8 is said to be similar in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone, but with a display the size of the 5.5-inch iPhone. According to Kuo, it will feature a 5.8-inch display with 5.15 inches of usable area, with the rest dedicated to virtual buttons that will replace the existing Home button. The iPhone 8's front-facing camera may also include 3D sensing capabilities, allowing it to find the location and depth of objects in front of it, perhaps enabling facial and iris recognition.

According to one report, the iPhone 8 could cost upwards of $1,000.

The primary goal of latest computer system screen savers is enjoyment and sometimes even, protection. However, they were being in the beginning meant to avert phosphor burn-in on plasma computer system displays in addition as CRT devices. Display savers served to avoid these damaging outcomes by immediately altering the photographs in the event the personal computer was not being used.

Allow me to explain to you of a mind maximizing strategy I had stumbled upon following loading an extremely massive range of photographs into My Pictures file, which was mechanically hooked, perhaps like your personal computer set up, to my display saver software. After sitting and watching it in the future, I pointed out the way it spurred on my brain and enhanced my spatial reasoning previous to planning sessions. It definitely assisted and that i was stunned.

Here's why it should be better (we hope) than any iPhone display yet (even if it's late). Smartphone organic light-emitting diode displays have been around for years. OLED displays have been appearing on Samsung phones since 2008 and more recently on high-profile phones like the Google Pixel (and likely the upcoming Google Pixel 2) and LG V30, as well as Windows phones from Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard.

Why OLED: With OLEDs, each individual sub-pixel is "independently directly electrically powered" to emit light, according to display expert Raymond Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies. That provides "better color accuracy, image contrast accuracy, and screen uniformity, in addition to incredibly flexible display power management since only the active image sub-pixels draw power based on their individual brightness levels," according to his written analysis.

The quick-and-dirty upshot is: compared to smartphone LCDs (Liquid Crystal Displays), OLED displays are getting better at a faster pace and deliver deeper blacks, fast response times, and better viewing angles. OLED display technology is now exceeding the performance of the best LCDs for Smartphones. There is no better confirmation of the OLED lead in performance than [well-sourced reports]...from a number of prominent publications that Apple will be switching the top-of-the-line iPhone to OLED displays in 2017.

--Raymond Soneira, DisplayMate Technologies Plus, OLEDs are more suited than LCDs to being made into flexible and curved screens. That said, it does not appear that the iPhone 8 will have the more aggressively curved display edges of the Samsung Galaxy S8 -- but Apple could do that in the future. Wait, aren't there OLED downsides? Not all OLED displays are created equal (same goes for LCDs).

As a recent (September 2) review at Ars Technica points out, LG's OLED on the V30 supplied to Ars Technica had some issues. The OLED panel on my pre-production unit still has the same issues as the LG G Flex. In low brightness in a dark room, the screen is grainy and has "dirty" looking horizontal banding all over it. The light level is also woefully uneven, with hotspots blazing out of the left and right corners.

--Ars Technica I asked DisplayMate's Soneira about that.* "LG is restarting their smartphone OLED display line, so this could be an early production issue," he said in response to an email query. And he said the following about the visible uniformity problems cited in the Ars Technica review: All display technologies have uniformity problems near black, including all LCDs. It's harder to see them on an LCD because their high black levels camouflage the non-uniformities.

It's easier to spot on OLEDs because they have very high contrast ratios so dark irregularities are easy to see, particularly with test patterns. The question is, are those irregularities visually noticeable by users with real image content? --Raymond Soneira And what about Samsung's OLED displays -- which Apple will reportedly use? "The Samsung Galaxy OLED displays have excellent dark screen uniformity, which I carefully evaluate with test patterns during my extensive lab tests - they are visually indistinguishable from perfect human vision in real image content," Soneira told me in an email.

"So the Samsung Galaxy OLEDs are definitely superior to LCDs in screen uniformity from very bright to very dark content," Soneira added. Apple isn't dumb: Apple is savvy at adopting new technologies and my bets are on a very high-quality OLED display. The downside for Apple will be its sole-supplier reliance on Samsung for these high-volume, high-quality OLEDs, which one analyst is claiming is driving up the cost of the iPhone 8.

(Other display suppliers like LG simply aren't there yet for very-high-volume, high-quality supply.) Soneira had some more thoughts about the OLED display on the upcoming "iPhone 8": Given that the iPhone 8 (or whatever its actual name is) will be an OLED manufactured by Samsung Display, it will be really interesting to see what the hardware differences are between it and the OLED displays in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8.

For example, I'm pretty sure that Apple won't be using Diamond Pixels like on all recent Galaxy OLED displays. I'm also very sure that both the LCD and OLED iPhones will support the latest DCI-P3 Color Gamut that is also used for 4K TVs. Plus they will almost certainly be certified by the UHD Alliance for Mobile HDR Premium, which will allow them to play all of the latest content produced for 4K UHD Premium TVs.

OLED price too high? Soneira disputes that the higher cost is due solely to the OLED.  He cites Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants, "who estimated the additional cost of the OLED display module for the latest Smartphones to be just $45 to $50 higher than for an LCD," according to Soneira. "There are of course many factors involved in setting the final retail price for a Smartphone, but the actual additional cost of the OLED display itself is only a small portion of the latest predicted price increases, which are most likely due to increased margins and to higher demand with a limited supply," he said in an email.
