Apple to Pay 150% More for OLED iPhone 3D Touch Components?

Therefore, TPK and GIS are expected to significantly benefit from Apple's orders for OLED-based 3D Touch solution. Moreover, there have been manifestations that a number of Apple's partners responsible for supplying some of the iPhone 8's more advanced technology modules that won't be able to supply the Apple's demand in time for a September launch. This was confirmed in a new report published today by the Chinese-language newspaper Economic Daily News. The processing cost of the 3D Touch OLED panels is only 50 percent more than its LCD counterpart, but TPK and GIS are allegedly quoting three times more than that.

By now, we have already accepted that there is a lot of truth to the rumors about a special anniversary iPhone 8 with an OLED display. To this point, Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski provided the following component cost breakdown for the iPhone 8 last week. The huge increase of price for the internal and external components will surely translate to a higher price for the final product itself. According to a recent research note from Goldman Sachs, the base level iPhone 8 model will sport 128GB of storage and will cost $1,000.

Seeing as how the iPhone form factor design has more or less remained unchanged since the 2014 release of the iPhone 6, the current iPhone owners have been rooting for something new and different for years now.

If you're one of the many people eagerly anticipating the release of Apple's next-gen iPhone 8, you might want to start saving up now. The size of the OLED display itself remains a mystery with speculations ranging from 5-inches to 5.8-inches.

Still, it will be the first iPhone to feature a 10nm FinFET chip, coupled with support for wireless charging and an edge-to-edge OLED display, so there are a ton of things to look forward as far as the new device goes.

With the excitement for the upcoming iPhone 8 building with each passing day, there have been a few nerve-racking reports claiming that the smartphone might be subject to notable delays. Apple is also rumored to debut the 4.7-inch iPhone 7s and 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus.

Unlike the iPhone 8, the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus are said to be using LCD display rather than OLED.
