Apple Stock News:
AppleInsider recently cited news that Apple is planning to switch their iPhone displays from LCD to organic light-emitting diode (OLED), the technology that is currently used in the Samsung Galaxy S7. OLED technology will allow for a curved display, better power efficiency, better contrast, deeper blacks and more saturated colors.
Last year there were reports that claimed Apple would not adopt OLED until 2018, but the most recent rumors from AppleInsider say that Apple will try to push for the new technology in 2017. Raymond Soneira, a display expert from DisplayMate Technologies told Forbes “the real question is whether Apple can or should jump in one step from a flat LCD to a curved screen OLED? That would require tremendous changes in the chips, electronics, mechanical design, industrial design, OS and App software development.”
It will be interesting to see if the new series of iPhones will indeed have curved displays, and whether or not they will better compete with Samsung’s galaxy franchise.
