Flexible Circuit Board And OLED Screen Predicted In New iPhone 8
Reports suggest that Apple has outsourced Samsung Electro-Mechanics and Interflex to produce flex printed circuit boards for the coming generation of the iPhone. FPCBs are fundamentally flex PCB boards. Production is expected to start out either in April or in May this year.
Not counting the brand newprinted circuit boards, the coming iPhone can be likely to feature an OLED display. Sources express that close to 40Per-cent of the new iPhone will be shipped with an OLED screen. This comprises units totaling to roughly 60 mil. And after 2018, all iPhones will hold OLED screens.
Production allocations not assigned yet
While the percentage of production that will be designated to every supplier is not decided, the anticipation is that Samsung Electro-Mechanic will likely be allotted a smaller figure since it has a limited production ability in comparison to Interflex. At this moment, the supplier has a floor space of somewhere around 90 ,000 square meters while Interflex had a floor area of about 220,000 square meters when the capacity at its factories in South Korea, Vietnam and China is merged. Besides that, Interflex is believed to be preparing to investing over $80 mil in expanding capacity at a emerging manufacturing plant.
Other than OLED display screens and FPCBs, other highlights which are rumored to come preloaded with the latest iPhone include a 3D-sensing technology, iris reader and cord-less charging. And stemming from the cost incurred with the latest features and the fact that it’ll be a bigger refresh than has been the case in the last several years, a exclusive edition of the approaching iPhone is expected to be the more expensive ever in the smartphone’s 10-year history. Sources reveal that the phone might cost more than $1,000.
iPhone’s sticky effect
While other producers of end user electronics would be hesitant to push selling prices higher for fear of putting off potential buyers, Apple has nothing to be concerned about if current trends are anything to go by. The gross sales of Apple’s most current mobile phone model have started picking steam even though they were initially lackluster. The recession in recent years has been blamed on the fact that Apple hasn’t had a huge iPhone upgrade for long. This means if all the stated cutting edge attributes appear, Apple is nearly assured of an overall victor this time round.
