Next year iPhone will get thinner OLED screens

Apple placed an order for OLED screens with integrated touch detection sensor, reports Gizmochina with reference to ETNews. The transition to the new technology will make the displays thinner.

Apple’s flagship smartphones now feature OLED screens, which are individually attached to the thinnest layer that detects the touch on the display. The new displays that Apple is looking for suppliers for are immediately equipped with touch-identification sensors. That means no more layers are required and displays are thinner than they are today.

And the next line of iPhones to be introduced this fall will have the familiar OLED displays. According to the latest information, three Apple smartphones will receive OLED screens: their diagonals will be 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches. There will also be another smartphone with an IPS matrix.
