It has been rumored that we could be introduced to an Apple iPhone with a curved screen as soon as next year. Apple is currently testing more than ten prototypes for the new and upcoming iPhone. The technology that creates the curved screen is organic light-emitting diode (OLED), a newer kind of display that has deeper blacks and lower power consumption.
As Apple’s tenth Anniversary approaches, the pressure to create and release a new desirable iPhone, to prevent further sale declines, is higher than ever. The model is expected to feature a glass casing, wireless charging, and a new edge-to-edge screen design, in addition to the latest chips and technologies.
The Wall Street Journal warns that the OLED iPhone could be scrapped before its expected launch next fall. After all, Apple is testing ten prototypes and reportedly killed an iPhone model months before launch in 2016. It sounds as if Apple’s plans will depend on whether the company’s suppliers can provide enough next-generation screens.
