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.
