Report: Apple planning three iPhone models for 2017, one with curved OLED display

Nikkei Asian Review claims Apple is planning to release three iPhone models next year, including a premium device that will feature a curved display. A source familiar with Apple’s plans said, “There will be a 4.7-inch model, another that will be 5.5-inches and a premium handset that will be either 5.5-inches or larger equipped with a screen bent on the two sides,” noting the first two phones will feature the flat screen found on current Apple devices.
Apple is rumored to be adopting all-glass casings for all of its 2017 phones, but the source said only the premium model will receive an improved OLED screen. Other rumors claim Apple will be switching all its phones to OLED screens after reaching a $2.59 billion deal with Samsung to produce the displays for iPhones over the next three years, but Samsung’s position as the only supplier currently offering the flexible OLED screens has led to speculation that the company won’t be able to keep up with demand for both itself and Apple next year.
