Sharp exec confirms next iPhone will have OLED display

Sharp exec confirms next iPhone will have OLED display

The Sharp CEO is also an executive at his company's parent company Foxconn Technology Group - famed for manufacturing iPhones. Foxconn, of course, is a critical iPhone part supplier and assembler.

He also said that Apple needed this acquisition of OLED technology as per the technological trends.

His remarks come in the wake of Apple's first annual sales decline since 2001. Some are citing the lack of innovation in the latest iPhone 7 as being one reason for the slump. However, Sharp now supplies LTPS panels for Apple but at present has very limited OLED production capabilities. But he added that Apple runs the greater risk of stagnation if it does not find a way to reinvent itself. As I am writing this piece, Sharp is about to build 2 new factories in Japan and/or United States of America to deal with the volume, as Apple is expecting record sales numbers for the new iPhone 8. "If our key customer demands us to manufacture in the USA, is it possible for us not to do so?" the CEO said. "If our key customer demands [that we] manufacture in the USA, is it possible for us not to do so?"

According to previous rumors, the next-generation iPhone will feature a "glass sandwich" design, but another improvement could be the addition of an OLED panel.

OLED screens are also flexible enough to let manufacturers use it to form curved or foldable screens. Many have an OLED screen. Next year will also be the 10 anniversary since the release of the first iPhone and it is expected that the company will go big with iPhone 8.

While wireless charging and curved OLED display are going to be new features for iPhones, some Android phones have been offering these for a while.

While we are not sure whether this feature will in fact, come in the next Apple smartphone flagship, it does reveal the company's future plans.

If you could, do not miss the CES convention because there will be lots of new products form LG as well. Couple that with much deeper blacks and a thinner panel design, and the advantages that OLED brings definitely outweighs the hardships that Apple will have to overcome in order to implement the new screen tech into the world's most popular phone.
