Apple iPhone 8 will be released this year, and according to the latest leaks and reports, the latest device will have an OLED display. Apple is expected to launch three models at the end of this year, which will include iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus. These will stick with the LCD display. However, the latest report from Japan indicates the iPhone series in 2018 will all feature OLED displays.
Earlier this year, a supply chain report said that Apple plans to make all of its iPhones with an OLED screen by 2019. However, according to a report by Nikkei, that timeline has been bumped up slightly based on two industry sources, who said that Apple is planning to use OLED displays in all new iPhone models launched from the second half of 2018.
The source also revealed that Apple is "tentatively" looking to debut three iPhone models next year, and all would use an OLED display. That would be in contrast to the trio of iPhones coming in 2017, two of which are expected to still use LCD screens and one of them will be the first iPhone to have the OLED display, which might be iPhone 8, as reported by Mac Rumors.
According to the report from, Apple is rumored to have already begun designing the new iPhones coming in 2018, "but its plans are subject to change," as usual depending on various market factors. Apple iPhone 8 is said to launch in September along with the other two iPhones. However, the OLED display means iPhone 8 could face supply problems in the early stage, meaning that the demand will only pick up in the first quarter of 2018, according to analyst expectations.
According to separate reports, Apple is also said to introduce a 3D module for face recognition on the front of the iPhone 8. This will ensure the phone can be unlocked via a user's face.
