“They also note that only the 5.8-inch model will boast OLED display tech,” Evans writes. “Other recent reports have claimed Apple supplier, Foxconn, has been testing wireless charging for next year’s iPhones, with Sharp confirming the company plans to use OLED displays.”

Evans writes, “Barclays today also confirmed Apple plans a curved display.”

    1. Why? None of the VR headsets I have used have curved screens and all of the phones touting VR support have flat screens.

      In order to be better for that kind of viewing the screen would have to curve the OPPOSITE way than a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge… in other words the wrong way because it would be awkward as shit to hold and therefore fairly crap as a phone… unless I am missing some vital piece of information that you used to come up with that hypothesis I cannot fathom why apple would do something so stupid. More likely the curve is just the only good way to truly facilitate a bezel less display.

    The certainly took a time machine to steal Apple’s design. Right? Or maybe it’s will they have stolen it… Or have they will steal it?

    These time travels makes things so difficult 😛
