Apple’s ‘iPhone 8’ Will Have 5.8-Inch OLED Display: Nikkei

According to a new report from Nikkei Asian Review, Apple will launch three new iPhone models this fall. Two of the models will have LCD displays with the same screen sizes as the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The third model will reportedly have a 5.8-inch OLED display.

This is not the first time that we have heard this rumour, however, the site previously reported that the OLED ‘iPhone 8’ will feature a 5-inch display. It seems as though the rumour mill is widely agreeing upon the 5.8-inch display size.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the next-generation iPhone will indeed have a 5.8-inch display. Kuo asserts that the primary area will actually be 5.15 inches, while the rest of the space will be reserved for a row of virtual buttons.

Various rumours also said the device’s physical dimensions will likely be similar to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. In order to achieve this, Apple will likely remove the physical home button and reduce the size of the bezels.

Given the various rumours about the size of the OLED panel, it is still unclear whether Apple will classify the “iPhone 8” as 5.1 inches, 5.2 inches, or 5.8 inches.

    Welcome to 2015 tech. Not for the price. If it wasn’t for my iTunes account I’d have already moved on.

  • FragilityG4

    2015 tech but no other phone can beat it in a speed test ….

  • hlna55

    Hahaha just the one the day while I was emailing texting and talking on the phone I was thinking… yes… need me a higher geek bench score.

  • FragilityG4

    So what ‘2017’ tech are you looking for as you email, text and talk?

  • hlna55

    Oh relax. I’ve had iPhones for years but the pricing is getting ridiculous and yes, this screen and size is dated tech already. Anytime someone says something about Apple the fanboys come running in for a fight. Chill out.

  • FragilityG4

    I like discussions … even if the opposing points are moot ????

  • SOB

    So would the current 7 and 7 plus sizes fit in a phone smaller than 4.7 inches?

  • OliChabot

    So theyll keep on fractionning their product line while offering us a 1400CAD$ iPhone that not even 1% of the population will be able to afford in Canada? I’m getting curious knowing what new technology will be offered in the other versions…

    I was paid $104000 previous year by doing an online job at home and I manage to accomplish that by wo­rking part time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more hours each day. I’m using an earning opportunity I found online and I am so amazed that i made such great money. It’s so newbie-friendly a­n­d I’m so blessed that i found this. Here is what i do… http://jump­.­wtf/CCcHHu1

    I don’t get why every new phone or product recently, and not just Apple, is so expensive. Even the new Surface pro is what 3k for top model and not even quad core, and whats with the MacBook, not even the pro, so expensive. its like you have no choice but to go contract

    Subsidies are the biggest problems. But as we’re seeing here in Canada they are disappearing. It’s not even a subsidy anymore – it’s a no interest finance essentially since you pay a portion upfront and the rest on a ‘tab’. If we had to all buy outright prices would eventually come down like TVs. The trade off would be longer cycles of each iteration I would guess.

  • OliChabot

    Isn’t that Apple that kind of created major subsidy ? I remember reading something that pre-iPhone era subsidy weren’t really popular and that with the iPhone Steve Jobs had been able to convice major telecom to offer high-end phones on subsidy for a higher-priced contract… It’s interesting to see that it’s kind of falling appart as the years go by…

  • FragilityG4

    Subsidies have been around on phones for much longer than iPhone. The difference before was carriers picked and chose what phones they would offer. E.g. If I wanted the SonyEricsson P500 I had to buy it at full price as no carrier was offering it. But if I wanted the Nokia 3100 it would be fully subsidized as all the carriers were offering it.

    From apple it’s only three months.

  • FragilityG4

    Yeah but my point is there are no longer any subsidies and the carrier payment plans masked as subsidies are the reason why hardware prices remain high.
