Apple's iPhone 8 To Be The Most Expensive iPhone Ever

TPK hikes 3D Touch price for iPhone with OLED, says paper

The smartphone will finally feature an OLED screen, welcoming Apple to the new age.

Notably, the iPhone 8 mold shows a dual camera bump, positioned vertically as opposed to the iPhone 7 Plus's vertical dual camera design.

The Apple iPhone 8 is rumored to feature a sleek new redesign with an edge-to-edge screen display. If most of these frames it does not, then you can easily count on all the 5.2 or even 5.3 inches, but in this regard, no specifics there. The iPhone 7s continues to sport a single camera setup and the iPhone 7s Plus also continues to sport a horizontal dual camera setup as before.

It's no surprise that if the 10th anniversary iPhone is launched later this year that it will cost a significant amount, but as rumors continue to flow regarding the technology Apple is seeking to squeeze inside we could end up with an eye watering price tag.

The rumor mill, Wall Street, and Apple fans are nearly certain that the Cupertino company would release three iPhones this September. This is versus the rumors which have suggested that Apple could be going for an embedded sensor. The mold in the center is the one for the so-called iPhone 8, and it reveals a device size that's much, much closer to the iPhone 7s on the right, with the left being the iPhone 7s Plus. The device won't differ much from the iPhone 7 in terms of size. The bezels around the iPhone 8 will just measure 4mm all around.

The iPhone 8 will have the front and rear panels made out of glass.




Patently Apple posted a report in March titled "Apple Suppliers GIS and TPK are Building New Capacity to Handle Apple's Next-Gen 3D OLED Touch Panels".

Additionally, according to Goldman Sachs, the OLED display itself is 35 dollars more expensive to produce than an LCD panel.

The iPhone has been a symbol of technological innovation for years, but it has been slipping since the iPhone 5. While a Samsung-esque version of wireless charging might be on the cards, some rumours point towards a far more radical approach.

According to a report by Chinese newspaper Economic Daily News, cited by Digitimes, TPK Holdings is charging Apple between $18 and $22 per display, up massively from the $7-9 it now charges.
