iPhone 8 Screen Plot with NEW “Function Area” ?!


iPhone 8 Screen Plot with NEW “Function Area” ?!

KGI Securities hinted that the iPhone 8 will be getting an OLED screen that surrounds the edges of the face of the device.

It is said that the size will be 5.8 inches, while the screen will cover a 5.5-inch surface area, very much like a conventional iPhone Plus model.

Oddly, the display area shows that the size is between 5.1 and 5.2 inches and it will more likely be at a regular iPhone size with a 4.7-inch display.

An analyst, Ming-chi Kuo, pictures the general image of the release spectrum predicted for the fall: conventional 4.7-inch iPhone and 5.5-inch iPhone Plus packs with LCD screens with an OLED showboat stuck in the middle.

The screen will span an expansive 5.8 inches in diameter, but apparently, it will still present the 4.7-inch form factor. This likely means that the screen will be occupying the whole front surface, leaving no space for thin top and bottom bezels. Though, we don’t know how the back will look like.

It is depicted that the OLED screen will have a total resolution of 2,800 x 1,242, and a “function area” at the bottom of the screen for users to navigate around the UI.

Also, it will have a main 5.15-inch display area with resolution of 2,436 x 1,125 (2.17:1 aspect ratio) at 521 pixels per inch.

Kuo believes that Apple can set out with pricing the iPhone 8 at $1,000 — following on from a rumour started by Fast Company — because the “innovative user experience” will campaign for itself to users and carry off 60% of total iPhone sales in the second half.

Let’s look forward to Apple’s innovation on the upcoming iPhone 8.
