According to the Korean edition of ETNews, next year Apple plans to slightly change the diagonals of its smartphones. In particular, the Cupertinians can release iPhones with 5.4 and 6.7-inch displays.
Sources claim that one of the features of these models will be Samsung’s Y-OCTA technology. The latter allows the touchscreen chip to be placed directly on the OLED panel without the need for a separate layer. This decision should allow Apple to slightly reduce the thickness of the iPhone.
However, some believe that the transition to new thinner displays is a kind of signal that the Cupertinians have decided to somewhat change the appearance of their smartphone. In particular, change the body lines or release a device with a slightly curved screen.
According to sources, displays with Samsung Y-OCTA technology will be used only in two older models – iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The successor to the iPhone 11 should have a film display made by LG.
