The iPhone 8 having a 5.8-inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) screen is pretty much gospel at this point, as is the fact that bitter rival Samsung is taking up the responsibility of supplying these panels. Switching from LED to OLED will translate to true inky blacks and vivid colors.
More importantly, OLED displays can be curved. Apple was reportedly going to run with this and wrap the panel around the sides of the iPhone 8, but had to drop the idea eventually because of yield issues. There’s a chance it might play it safe and stick to a flat screen with 2.5D curved glass.
The good news here is that no matter how bent the display ends up being, it will almost certainly feature no home button and minimal bezels. Apple’s even patented a way to hide the array of sensors usually found up top (more on this later!).
