Apple's OLED iPhone to secure key parts from Korea

Touch ID is at the core of Apple Pay, and it appears much more likely that 3D facial or iris recognition would complement rather than replace fingerprint sensing.

Apple will probably launch its new iPhone 8 sometime later this year and there are chances that the company will make significant improvements in the new iPhone design and features.

Apple's upcoming new iPhone, the first flagship smartphone to feature an organic light-emitting diode screen, is expected to secure key parts from Korean suppliers, including the sole panel producer Samsung Display. He too speculated that Apple could remove Touch ID, but he believes it's more likely that Apple will put Touch ID on the back of the iPhone or delay production. The unusual lens configuration has so far beguiled Apple's avid fans, though speculations are high that the vertical cameras might have something to do with the iPhone 8's rumored AR capabilities.

However, it is reported that LG Display judged that the company will lag behind the market unless they invest on time as displays of smartphones were rapidly shifting from LCDs to OLEDs.

Last week, Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri said Apple is facing yield issues with its AuthenTec-based under-display fingerprint sensor solution. Sadly, the leaked diagram does not have an illustration on how the screen-embedded camera, proximity sensors, 3D sensor and others would look like on the iPhone 8. Additionally, we believe Apple has evaluated Synaptic's optical fingerprint solution, but that it has not been qualified.

The iPhone 8 depicted in the photos has a full-face design covering nearly the entire front display.

One outfit that might wind up cutting Apple lots of slack on its iPhone 8, regardless of how great or not it turns out to be, is SNL. A borderless OLED display and all-glass design has been the most consistent rumour, while the internal redesign may include breaking the logic board into discrete units that are connected with a flex cable. However, the thickness of the impending iPhone 8 was not shared by the leaked images.

As a side note, SK hynix is also in the bidding for Toshiba to strengthen their business with Apple.

Would you buy an iPhone 8 if the unthinkable happens?

So LG Display has bought itself a couple of months to mull over the possibility of handling two major clients - and two major smartphone brands: Google Pixel 2 and iPhone 8.
