Taiwan's TSMC is reportedly taking a big role in the manufacturing of the 2017 iPhone. Not only will TSMC make the A11 CPU with its 10nm technology and backend integrated fan-out (InFO) wafer-level packaging (WLP) technology. The chip maker is also making OLED driver ICs according to sources of Digitimes.
Apple will adopt OLED panels from South Korean display makers including Samsung. The controlling OLED display chip is supposed to be an in-house design according to sources.
There is a new rumor that not all of the 2017 iPhones aka iPhone 8 will be featuring an OLED display. The source of this prediction is analyst Hendi Susanto at Gabelli & Co. Apple is known to keep product line-ups simple, but anything is possible now. We are looking right now on a new iPhone that will adopt basically the same design as the previous two generations. That never happened before.
Apple also dared to reactivate an iPhone design from 4 years ago for the iPhone SE.
