Smartphone fans are eagerly waiting for Apple’s first OLED display iPhone. Interestingly, a new rumor has hinted that the Cupertino tech company could be planning to roll out a 6.46-inch OLED iPhone next year. If this rumor turns out to be true, the company is giving its new iPhones a screen that is bigger in comparison to the panels its current biggest handsets are outfitting.

According to The Investor, industry sources claimed that Apple has already kicked off the development on a 6-inch iPhone. This is part of the company’s goal of rolling out the largest iPhone next year. Aside from the 2018 handset’s screen size, what is interesting here is that the company will be utilizing the same OLED display technology of its highly anticipated iPhone 8, which is set to launch on September 12.

The company is said to be launching two OLED iPhones next year. One of which will come along with a 5.85-inch screen, while the other variant will feature a huge 6.46-inch display. However, it is noteworthy that the 5.85-inch variant will have the same screen size as the iPhone 8.

Samsung to supply Apple’s OLED display

Samsung is expected to be the solitary OLED supplier of Apple, as it is the only firm with the capacity to produce OLED screen on a large scale. Companies, like Sharp as well as LG, are only starting to increase infrastructure.

Apple has yet to confirm these rumors, but sources are claiming that the company will most likely release bigger mobile devices next year due to the boosting consumer demand for mobile devices with large screens. Considering Apple’s work on its iPhone 8, the company might also be planning to grasp the full-screen design for its upcoming iPhones.

Talking about the much awaited iPhone 8, the company has already sent out invites for its press event on September 12. The event will transpire at the Steve Jobs Theater. Aside from the iPhone 8, the company is believed to be unveiling other products at the event, according to Apple Insider.

The company is expected to unveil the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, the upgraded Apple TV and the Apple Watch Series 3. Nonetheless, the iPhone 8 is expected to be the star at the event.
