iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

Reports this week suggest that Apple's next big iPhone launch won't only be a big event because it's a "tick" year in their "tick-tock" schedule - it'll be big because of their Samsung connection. It's not unheard of for Apple to use Samsung parts in their smartphones - they've been doing it since the very beginning. What is unheard of thus far is Apple's use of an OLED display panel from Samsung on any one of their devices. With the use of an OLED panel, the iPhone will be brighter and more intense than ever before.

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

In the run-up to the big iPhone 7 reveal later this year, Apple is said to be working on an even more fundamental change to its best-selling smartphone. Though the Cupertino company has used LCD screens for its handsets since the first iPhone in 2007 - and is expected to continue to do so for the iPhone 7 - that could all change come next year, as the lure of OLED finally tips Retina display into the opposing camp.

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

Apple might not be radically changing the iPhone. At least not this year. But it won't be long before it does. Contradicting his own earlier report, Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed Apple analyst and prophet of upcoming products and features, has pulled forward the timetable for Apple's somewhat new yet familiar next iPhone, which could be the iPhone 8. Instead of 2018, it will be the 2017 iPhone that will get the rumored new display material and even wireless charging. Despite the new features, however, it could be wrapped in a design similar to older iPhones.

Apple said to make iPhone switch to OLED in 2017

Apple said to make iPhone switch to OLED in 2017

One of the longest running questions about the iPhone in recent years has been when Apple will make the switch from LCD displays to OLED. The most recent reports from last fall had pegged Apple as working with parts manufacturers for a change in display in either 2018 or 2019, but a recent report from Japanese business publication Nikkei says Cupertino has moved up their plans, and is now aiming for a OLED iPhone debut in 2017.

Epson Moverio BT-300 hands-on: OLED switch for AR upgrade

Epson Moverio BT-300 hands-on: OLED switch for AR upgrade

If augmented reality is yet to make the market splash its VR cousin has, that's probably down to the relative shortcomings of transparent displays, but Epson's latest Moverio BT-300 suggests a tipping point is close. Freshly announced at Mobile World Congress today, the BT-300 headset not only slims down Epson's wearable display, but massively improves the image quality and usability.

Samsung Galaxy S7 could have Always On screen

Samsung Galaxy S7 could have Always On screen

This latest speculation is both technologically possible but might also be a bit too much, both in its goal and Samsung's legal action. In South Korea at least, it has tried to obtain the trademark for "Always On Display", a phrase that has already been used quite a lot in the tech industry, from ebook readers, to smartwatches and even to some smartphones. If so, what is Samsung's purpose for an almost unreasonable claim? With the unveiling of the Galaxy S7 nearing, it could very well be a feature that the Samsung flagship will advertise greatly,

LG G6 revealed with 4K OLED display

This week LG revealed the first look at their ultra-premium series of products by the name of LG Signature, and within this collection, the LG G6.

LG Display brings rollable OLED newspaper to CES 2016

LG Display said it was pumping $8.7bn into OLED development, and some of the early fruits of that investment at showing up at CES this week.

Apple’s OLED screens for iPhones to come from Samsung, LG

Apple’s OLED screens for iPhones to come from Samsung, LG

The mobile world is sometimes a funny one. The coined word "frenemies" seems to be perfect to describe some of the relationships here. Sometimes vicious rivals in public can actually be partners and suppliers in private. Take for example this latest rumor about Apple's 2018 iPhones, which in turn are rumored to finally switch to OLED displays. Those panels are now said to be provided by two Korean manufacturers, namely LG and Samsung, the latter of whom is Apple's sword rival in the smartphone biz.
