A new report published in Wall Street Journal stated that the much awaited 2017 edition of iPhone 8 might simply come with an OLED curved display by ditching the LCD panel. The report also claimed that Apple has already asked its suppliers to speed up the production of OLED.

As OLED displays are more expensive than the existing LCD panel, iPhone 8 could therefore come with a higher price tag. Apart from the OLED display, Apple iPhone 8 will also feature wireless charging. A well known Apple analyst was quoted saying that iPhone 8 users will be able to charge the phone with a wireless charging system, a technology which is very similar to Apple watches. The wireless speed will also offer faster speed. This wireless charging feature of Apple will be entirely cable free.

According to the reprt, Apple will take the help of Samsung for OLED supply and at the same time it also wants LG Display, Japan Display and Sharp to fasten up production for 2018.

Apple is considering some radical changes for its upcoming iPhone 8 in terms of designs and specifications. Introduction of a 3D camera in iPhone 8 might be a possibility.

A report publsihed in Korea Economic Daily stated that Apple is working with LG Innotek to develop a smartphone camera thatw ill support 3D photography. The 3D dual rear camera type can be used in Apple’s laetst products from the beginning of 2017. LG Innotek’s 3D camera technology has already been incorporated in Optimus 3D. The report claimed that LG is supplying its dual camera for iPhone 7, which was unveiled in Korea in October.

Apart from the 3D camera, there are also rumours that Apple will intriduce wireless charging in iPhone 8. There will also be revisions of standard 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays in 2017. The phones are expected to come with glass casings too.
