He, according to private sources, Hendy Susanto, will be equipped with OLED display. However, contrary to previous rumors, the new display technology will move only one premium model of the iPhone.
According to analysts, Apple’s suppliers will not be able to supply OLED displays in the right amounts, so the company will introduce the screen only in the top version, produced in limited editions. A large part of the OLED panels for the iPhone 8, according to rumors, will supply Samsung, Apple and the rest will purchase from LG Display and Japan Display. In the beginning of the year the South Korean giant has invested significant funds in the production of OLED-panels.
OLED displays are brighter, more saturated colors, deeper blacks and lower power consumption than LCD panels. Samsung already for a long time uses its own AMOLED panels in many Galaxy smartphones that attracts consumers. In turn, Apple needs to offer something new to maintain interest in the brand smartphones.

If the rumors are true, the decision to limit the use of new technologies one of the models will not be something new for the company.
