iPhone said to copy Galaxy Note 7 curved OLED display

Apple’s iPhone 7 is supposed to be relatively conservative in its changes from the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. However, a new report suggests that Apple will release three different iPhones next year, including one that borrows features from the Galaxy Note 7.

“There will be a 4.7-inch model, another that will be 5.5-inches and a premium handset that will be either 5.5-inches or larger equipped with a screen bent on the two sides,” a source told Nikkei Asian Review. The more premium device, perhaps the iPhone 8, sounds like the Galaxy Note 7, which has a 5.5-inch curved AMOLED screen.

Several reports have suggested Apple is going to tap Samsung for these displays, so it makes sense that it may be the same, or very similar, to what’s already on the market. Nikkei reaffirmed reports that Samsung will be the primary supplier of OLED screens for the 2017 iPhone.
