Samsung Rumored To Supply OLEDs For The iPhone 9

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

The iPhone 8 has yet to be officially announced but it seems that we can already get a jump on iPhone 9 related rumors. In a report from The Bell (via PhoneArena) out of Korea, it seems that Apple could already be lining up suppliers for the iPhone 9, and if their report is true, Samsung could be one of them.

The report claims that Apple and Samsung have come to an agreement in which the latter company will be shipping more than 180 million OLED panels for Apple’s 2018 flagship, which is more than double of what Apple is rumored to have ordered from Samsung this year. Given that Apple could potentially be launching more than one OLED iPhone model in 2018, we suppose the increase in shipments makes sense.

There have been reports that claim Apple will make the switch to OLED, and the Apple Watch was actually a good indication of Apple stepping in that direction. However this year Apple is said to be only launching one OLED iPhone model in the form of the iPhone 8, which is also rumored to be a celebration of the iPhone’s 10th anniversary.

Should Apple plan on revamping their entire lineup, it makes sense that they’d want to get their hands on as much supply as possible. Of course you should take this with a grain of salt for now, but if you’d love to see more OLED iPhones, 2018 could be the year to look forward to.

Another Analyst Suggests iPhone 8 Will Start At $870

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

With all the rumored new-fangled features that will allegedly be coming to the iPhone 8, like OLED displays, a glass and aluminum body, wireless charging, an embedded fingerprint sensor, and so on, it sounds like the upcoming iPhone 8 could get pricey. Recently an analyst took a stab at the phone’s pricing which could start at $999.

However it seems that not all analysts believe that will be the case. According to Business Insider, they quote UBS analyst Steven Milunovich who has offered his opinion in which he thinks that the iPhone 8 will start $870, which is admittedly slightly more affordable. This is also the model with 128GB of storage as Milunovich believes that Apple will not offer a 32GB variant for the iPhone 8.

He then suggests that the model with 256GB of storage could be priced at $1,070 which is considerably more expensive. At this time there is no word on when the iPhone 8 will be launched. There were talks about a possible delay due to shortage on components/complexities in manufacturing, but recently the reports are claiming that the iPhone 8 could be on track for a September launch.

Take it all with a grain of salt for now, especially since no one seems to be able to settle on a firm price, but here’s hoping that the iPhone 8 would be too costly, even by Apple’s standards.

Alleged 10.5-inch And 12.9-inch iPad Pro Cases Revealed

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

Word has it that Apple has a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro in the works that could be unveiled this coming June at WWDC 2017. In terms of design we’re not sure what to expect – could it be that Apple will stick to the current iPad Pro design? Or will the new iPad Pros start to adopt some of the rumored iPhone 8’s design features?

According to a tweet by Benjamin Geskin, maybe not. Geskin’s tweet claims that the new iPad Pro will not be adopting a bezel-less design and that the home button will still be present. This means that for all intents and purposes, the new iPad Pros should look similar to their predecessors and that the changes will most likely be under the hood.

iPad Pro 10.5′ WON’T be bezel-less.
Still bezels. Still home button.
7mm side bezels. 19mm up & down. (approx)
Render coming soon

We suppose that’s not the worst thing to hear, plus we can only assume that Apple would want to keep the iPhone 8’s design features a secret (or as much as possible) before the reveal. Another tweet by Geskin also revealed alleged cases for the iPad Pro, both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch models.

What’s interesting about these cases is the camera cutout which seems to be similar to what we’ve seen with the iPhone 8, but some have speculated that this is to make room for one camera lens and one flash unit, as opposed to the iPad Pros sporting a dual camera system. Either way take it with a grain of salt and check back with us in a couple of weeks where hopefully we’ll have the details to share.

New iPhone 8 Drawing Leak Suggests Rear-Facing Touch ID Sensor

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

Over the past couple of months, we’ve been treated to a fair number of iPhone-related leaks. Earlier leaks have suggested that the iPhone 8 could move Touch ID to the rear of the phone, although subsequent leaks and renderings have since suggested that will not be the case, or will it?

In the last image uploaded onto Slashleaks (via 9to5Mac), it shows an alleged drawing of the iPhone 8 and as you can see, it clearly shows that there is a cut out below the Apple logo in which it is presumed that is where the fingerprint sensor will be going. This is versus the rumors which have suggested that Apple could be going for an embedded sensor.

That being said, we should point out that it is hard to verify if the drawing we see is the real deal to begin with, since it probably wouldn’t be too hard to photoshop something like that. An alternative possibility is that the leak we are seeing could be based on an older design, such as an earlier prototype in which Apple was toying with the idea of a rear-facing Touch ID sensor.

In any case public opinion seems to be that a rear-facing sensor wouldn’t really be the best design, as we have seen from the backlash from Samsung’s decision for the Galaxy S8. Either way we won’t know until the phone is official so do take it with a grain of salt for now.

Possible Far Cry 5 Story And Settings Revealed

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

So we know that Far Cry 5 is in the works as it was confirmed by Ubisoft about a week ago. However the question is what will the game be about? What is the game’s story, and what kind of setting can we expect? We suppose those might be questions that could be answered at E3 2017 or at a later date, but a possible leak might have revealed some details.

In a post on Reddit, a user calling themselves FarCry5-throwaway made a post in which he/she gave away some details about the upcoming title. Apparently this user was involved in a focus group back in 2016 in which the client of the group turned out to be Ubisoft and that the game they were testing was Far Cry 5.

According to part of the post, it reads, “The general thrust of this game is that it will take place in present day, and feature the protagonist taking on a Jim Jones or David Koresh-like religious cult in a small town in Montana that’s been populated by, essentially, Doomsday-preppers bent on furthering their cause. So, modern-day weaponry and modern-day vehicles, plus a hilly, mountainous backdrop.”

Now as the OP notes, this focus group testing took place a year ago. This means that from then until now, a lot of things could have changed where Ubisoft could have ultimately scrapped the plan and gone for something else entirely. Of course there is also the question of whether or not the information was accurate in the first place, so do take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully we’ll have more details to share soon.

Possible Render Of The Verizon Ellipsis 10 HD Tablet Leaked

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

When it comes to tablets, there are probably a dozen or so manufacturers who have such devices available to consumers in varying sizes and price points. Now if you’re looking for a new tablet and think that maybe Apple’s iPads are a bit too expensive and dear on your wallet, you might be interested in Verizon’s upcoming offering.

In a post by Evan Blass on Twitter, the famed leakster shared a rendering of the upcoming Verizon Ellipsis 10 HD tablet. This isn’t the first time that the carrier has launched a tablet of its own so it really isn’t that surprising to see that they might have another device in the works. Unfortunately in terms of hardware it’s hard to say what we can expect, but Verizon’s previous Ellipsis tablets weren’t exactly high-end offerings so maybe we shouldn’t really expect too much from this particular model

There is also no word on when the tablet will be announced, but given that the previous model  was officially announced in November 2015, perhaps we might see this model launch later this year as well, although admittedly if that is the case seeing a render pop up this early is a bit unusual, so maybe we might be hearing about it earlier than we think. As for pricing, the previous tablet was priced at $199 upfront with a contract, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Verizon were to stick to a similar pricing model for this device.

Alleged Galaxy Note 8 Dummy Unit Suggests Embedded Fingerprint Sensor

Tyler Lee May 21, 2017

With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung made a rather odd decision of placing the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, a design choice that many did not seem too pleased about. Word has it that apparently Samsung ran out of time when trying to develop an embedded sensor, thus the last minute design change, or so we’re told.

However that could change with the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. In a series of photos posted onto Weibo (via PhoneArena), an alleged dummy unit of the Note 8 has surfaced. The dummy unit shows off the front and back of the phone, and what’s interesting is how the back of the phone depicts a dual camera setup and also what was missing from the photo was a cutout for the fingerprint sensor.

This has led to speculation that maybe Samsung has managed to figure out how to get the embedded fingerprint sensor working and will be incorporating that into the Note 8. The dual cameras aren’t really a surprise as we have been hearing rumors about them. It almost feels like the Note 8 is what the Galaxy S8 could have been, with the bonus of S Pen support.

In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, especially since in the past many were pretty confident about some of the Galaxy S8’s features only to be disappointed at the official reveal, but here’s hoping that the rumors are true anyway!

Apple’s iPhone 8 Reportedly Still On Track For September Launch

Tyler Lee May 21, 2017

There have been rumors to suggest that Apple’s iPhone 8 could be delayed due to shortages and also due to the complexity of manufacturing the components that Apple needs for the phone. This has resulted in reports indicating that the phone could be released in the later part of the year, or possibly even early next year.

However according to a report from Seeking Alpha (via Cult of Mac), it seems that analyst at Morgan Stanley think that Apple will no longer encounter any delays with the launch of the iPhone 8, and that it is apparently still on track for a launch this September which is usually around that time of the year that Apple makes new iPhone announcements.

So much so that the analysts have given Apple’s stock price a price target boost based on the belief that there aren’t going to be any delays. Of course this is just the opinions of analysts who may or may not end up being right, so you’ll obviously want to take this with a grain of salt for now, although we guess we wouldn’t be surprised if initial stock was low as Apple tends to run into shortages at launch due to overwhelming demand.

The latest from the analysts seem to back a tweet by @OnLeaks earlier this month in which he states that mass production is on track for August in anticipation of a launch in September, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

According to my sources: DVT started last month. PVT will start between June and July. Final mass production in August for September launch. https://t.co/2M2YyMjyi8

Alleged iPhone Molds Compare iPhone 8 Against 7s, 7s Plus Models

Tyler Lee May 20, 2017

If Apple is indeed planning on launching new iPhones later this year, presumably around the September mark, it means that by now Apple should be finalizing things like design and also starting to get ready for production. While full production probably won’t kick off so soon, we’re sure that they are at least getting ready.

So much so that we wouldn’t be surprised if production molds have already been made. In fact thanks to a recent post on Slashleaks (via AppleInsider), alleged iPhone molds have been caught on camera in which they apparently belong to the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and the 8. As you can see in the photo above, the iPhone 7s Plus is pictured to the far left, while the 7s is pictured to the right right, with the iPhone 8 pictured in the middle.

For those who are a little surprised at how “small” the iPhone 8 is, the rumors are saying that the handset will allegedly feature a form factor similar to that of the 4.7-inch iPhone, except that it will sport a larger display thanks to the claims that it will feature thinner bezels and an edge-to-edge display.

The camera design/layout appears to be in line with what we’ve seen so far, so no surprises there, although we are curious as to why Apple isn’t applying that same design to the iPhone 7s Plus’ dual cameras? In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but unless something changes, it seems that we pretty much know what to expect in terms of design for the iPhone 8 now.
