A new report out of Japan says that Apple plans to release three iPhones in 2017 including one with a curved screen like the Note 7.
Is Apple again copying Samsung in 2017? Apple long hesitated to follow Samsung with large screen smartphones. According to a new report on Nikkei, Apple is adopting the curved screen introduced by Samsung in the Galaxy smartphones last year.

The Nikkei report says that Apple will release three new iPhones in 2017. The premium 5.5-inch model will have curved edge OLED screen sourced from Samsung.
The report goes even further citing an analyst David Hsieh from IHS DisplaySearch saying that only the premium iPhone 8, or whatever the 10th anniversary iPhone will be called, adopts OLED. The other two 2017 iPhone models with flat screen stick with LCD technology.
I am not a big fan of the curved screen. It would be kind of sad to see an iPhone that just looks like an Galaxy Note 7. Apple should come up with their own concept what a flexible display could be used for in smartphones. If there is no great idea, don't do it.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 7 on September 7. This is already in two weeks. The iPhone 7 is not a big surprise anymore, because of all the leaks. There is though still a lot of context missing. IT is also still unclear if Apple is already introducing three iPhone models this year with the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro.
