Apple Planning 5.8-inch Flexible OLED Display For iPhones, Rumoured To Launch in 2017-2018
AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) is a display technology in mobile devices and television. OLED describes a specific type of thin-film-display technology in which organic compounds form the electroluminescent material, and active matrix refers to the technology behind the addressing of pixels. As a result of their active matrix natures, AMOLED displays have faster pixel switching response times than do traditional OLED displays, which are prone to ghosting when displaying fast moving animations.
According to a pre-publication report by DigiTimes via Motley Fool, the biggest iPhone, which is said to be called the iPhone Pro, would see the light of the day within the next two years. The report adds that Samsung has been picked as the primary source for the supply of OLED panels while other manufacturers – LG and Japan Display – would join the bandwagon later.
Apple’s working on a big 5.8-inch iPhone, claim some reports online, citing patents and supply chain sources. Apple’s decision to use OLED displays for future iPhones has been in news for quite some time. Apple is expected to bring 50 million iPhones with OLED displays in the first year of availability, DigiTimes sources in the supply chain revealed.
