Galaxy Note 8 specs tipped to match OLED iPhone 8

Estimates for shipping numbers for the Galaxy S8 have risen in KGI's books as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo taps into Galaxy Note 8 predictions.

Whether or not Apple jumping in on OLED will affect how well Android devices are supplied is another question entirely.

At least that seems to be the atmosphere among component suppliers that are girding up their loins for a drought in the coming months until Apple starts the engines for the 2017 iPhone model. Apple’s Flexible Printed Circuit Board (FPCB) suppliers are preparing products that can be used on Apple’s OLED iPhone screens, further fanning the flames of speculation.
