Last week, an article posted by AppleInsider citing the famous Ming-Chi Kuo analysis from KGI Securities ensured thatApple weren?t going to opt for a screen AMOLED before the year 2019, and the iPhone 8S (read: Apple: no AMOLED screens on the iPhone before 2019?)
For its part, the Asian news site Nikkei believe that the Cupertino company will switch from LCD screens (which equip all smartphones of the brand up to the current iPhone 6S and 6S Plus) to OLED screens in 2018. As a reminder, AMOLED panels are active matrix OLED screens.
If Apple keeps its regular schedule,iPhone 8 could therefore be the first phone from the Californian giant to have an OLED screen. It should be available during the month of September 2018. Still according to Nikkei, the companies LG Display and Samsung Electronics could take care of the mass production of these components of the iPhone 8.
