Apple to Pay 150% More for OLED iPhone 3D Touch Components?

Is this how the Apple iPhone 8 might look like

While we always knew that the iPhone 8 would be pricey, a new report from the Economic Daily News (via Digitimes) provides us with a better idea as to why the highly anticipated iPhone 8 will be the most expensive iPhone Apple has ever released. IPhone 8, iPhone 7s iPhone 7s Plus, Apple intends to present in early fall of this year, and rumor has it that iPhone 8 it will ask at least $1000.

The 3D touch solution for OLED panels require bonding of a glass cover on the front and back of an OLED panel. The price is expected to shoot up to $18-$22 for OLED displays. In order to get its groove back, reports indicate that Apple agreed to some rather alarming rates to integrate 3D Touch into its newest device. The huge increase of price for the internal and external components will surely translate to a higher price for the final product itself. A highly spec'd out iPhone 8 will draw attention away from the other smartphones, hurting their sales performance.

Apple is expected to unveil the three much awaited iPhones in the fall at a media event in September. That includes the Apple iPhone 7s, Apple iPhone 7s Plus and the 10th anniversary edition dubbed the Apple iPhone 8.

With the inevitable arrival of this year's iPhone, fans and pundits are hoping that it will be a revolutionary, not just an evolutionary, step for Apple's flagship device.


We can also expect a faster A11 processor with a home button and fingerprint scanner integrated into the phone's display.

If true, you can see that it will be distinctly smaller than the iPhone 7s Plus, said to have a similar 5.5-inch display to the current 7 Plus.

The iPhone 8, picture in the middle, appears slightly larger than the iPhone 7S variant, and sports the vertical dual camera set up which featured in previous leaked images. The iPhone 8 will have no bezels as it is likely to feature an edge-to-edge display. In fact, a handful of reports have even claimed that Apple might push back the iPhone 8 release date all the way to November. Since the other iPhone models coming this year are expected to follow the pattern of Apple's typical "S"-updates, the 7s and 7s Plus should have the same physical dimensions as the existing 7 and 7 Plus, as well as their 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, respectively".
