Apple defines the word innovation to the greater extent. They always try to come up with something new with software & hardware. Implementing always new things (Apple Watch 2) to its gadget that is what makes Apple so unique & user favourite.

Apple always toys with the iPhone’s physical form factor & they always keep some surprises into their sleeves. In 2014, Apple introduced two new iPhone’s with screen size 4.7 inch & 5.5 inch. It appears the Cupertino based company likely to give more option to the screen range as soon as next year. According to a report from DigiTimes, Apple could introduce an iPhone with a 5.8 inch display. Reports are also suggesting that they are going to ditch LCD display technology on iPhone in favour of OLED display. Larger screen would make the web surfing, watching videos, & playing games easier & more enjoyable. Some people might balk at the idea of a phone that might be too long & not able to use comfortably.

But there is a theory floating around that Apple could introduce a 5.8 inch iPhone displays, but at the same time keep its size roughly same as the 5.5 inch iPhone. This theory has been given by Dr. Raymond Soneira (Founder, President and CEO of DisplayMate Technologies Corporation), which says it could be achieved just by changing the aspect ratio & by wrapping the extra screen real estate around the sides of the phone, similar to what Samsung has done in Galaxy S7 Edge. You might me thinking of that, they just using Samsung idea. But Apple has actually worked in this idea way before Samsung & they have filled a patent on 2011.

Apple is supposedly to side with Samsung for the supply of OLED display. Later on LG & Japan Display will join the deal. Reports are suggesting that over 50million of OLED display will be shipped for Apple.

 What is OLED?

OLEDs are thin solid state device that directly emits colored light.

OLED displays have been improving rapidly with screen size, peak brightness, & power efficiency. OLED does not need backlight & supporting optics components that’s why OLED are considerably thinner & lighter than LCD displays.

Apple is also rushing to use OLED displays because they are falling behind with LCDs (currently using in all iPhones). OLED display can pave the path to flexible, bendable, foldable display screens.

We don’t comprehend what shape an iPhone with side bars could take, yet the supposed 5.8-inch size of the showcase is about right to add side boards to current-era iPhones.
