Apple’s iPhone 5.8-inch with an OLED display could come with support for wireless charging, says a report on Apple Insider.
Apple Insider is quoting from an investor note by well-known KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to the Apple Insider report, the new iPhone will have a glass sandwich design like the iPhone 4s but with curved plans on the back and front.
His notes adds that Apple could use “exotic materials” on the iPhone, perhaps glass for the case design and it is “expected to include wireless charging and new biometric recognition technology like face and iris scanning.” The wireless charging feature is something that we’ve seen quite a few leaks mention for the upcoming Apple iPhones.

The report adds that the 5.8-inch AMOLED iPhone panel could launch by 2017, although Kuo believes that Apple wants to position the new screen iPhone as a replacement to the current TFT LCD display iPhone 6s Plus. Will the new iPhone 7 Plus feature a bigger display with AMOLED panel? It all depends on the supply chain, notes Kuo.
Earlier a report from DigiTimes also claimed that Apple is working on the 5.8 display with OLED. Another report from South Korea’s Electronic Times said that LG Display, and the panel-making unit of Samsung Electronics will supply organic light emitting diode (OLED) screens for Apple’s iPhone.
The report added that LG and Samsung Display are close to a final agreement with Apple for the screens, and the two Korean firms plan a combined 15 trillion won ($12.8 billion) in capital expenditure to build up OLED production capacity over the next two to three years.
