iPhone 7S to Feature OLED Screen

New report claims that Apple will adopt OLED technology for the iPhone screen starting in 2017.

OLED and iPhone rumors have a long loving history. While Samsung and others have used OLED displays in their smartphones for years now, Apple stayed away from the technology. OLED has a big advantage that is becoming more important. OLED displays can be bent, allowing new shapes for screens, like you find on the Galaxy S7 edge.

The new report on the Chinese language Nikkei edition, spotted by AppleInsider, is not adding anything new to the already rumored state of the Apple OLED situation. We covered a rumor report in early 2016 that said that Samsung is investing big to supply Apple with flexible OLED screens for a future iPhone.

The only new information is about the time frame for the OLED iPhone. Nikkei, which previously claimed that Apple would release the first OLED iPhone in 2018 is now saying that Apple has moved the release up to 2017, putting pressure on suppliers. The report we covered in January coming out of Korea claimed that Samsung is already beginning this year with the OLED sheet production.

We don't know anything more now about Apple's OLED plans. It is very unlikely that Apple will adopt OLED for the iPhone 7. It would also be a major step for Apple to switch screens from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone 7S. Too big a change possibly for a S version iPhone. Which makes the iPhone 8 in 2018 the more likely first OLED iPhone.
