Apple May Be Planning a Bigger iPhone 8

Any other smartphone maker would be thrilled to sell as many phones, but Apple has not seen the same enthusiasm for this device that it has in the past. Next year will be a defining moment for Apple and the iPhone; it’s the tenth anniversary of the device. What does Apple have in store to mark a decade of iPhones? A really big one, apparently.The current rumor is that Apple could be looking at a larger 5.8-inch OLED panel for the iPhone 8 (presumably a Plus model). The current iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD. As far as LCDs go, Apple has always chosen very nice ones. However, OLED technology has come a long way in recent years and is really undeniably better. The colors, black levels, and response time are noticeably better than LCD.As for the size, 5.8-inches sounds like a big phone. Although, it’s worth noting that the current iPhone 7 Plus has rather large bezels. A phone like the Galaxy S7 Edge has extremely small bezels compared to the iPhone. Apple is rumored to be toying with “bezel-less” designs, which could deliver a larger display in the same footprint as the current iPhone 7 Plus. A display of that size is still going to be somewhat uncomfortable to use, so it’s all going to come down to ergonomics and palm rejection (the ability of the display to ignore accidental touches). Reports also suggest that Apple could be looking at using a curved OLED panel, a design pioneered by Samsung.Whatever Apple is up to, we’ll find out in fall 2017. Although, with the way recent Apple devices have been leaking, you might not have to wait that long to get a good idea. Stay on targetlast_img
