A source 'familiar with Apple's plans' told the Nikkei Asian Review that "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."
David Hsieh, a senior director at IHS DisplaySearch, says that only the premium handset will feature an OLED display and the other two models will stick with low-temperature poly-silicon panels.
Nikkei says that Samsung is the only company who can currently supply flexible OLED screens. It will likely be the sole supplier for the OLED display used by Apple in its next generation device.
Apple is widely rumored to be moving to an all-glass design for the 2017 iPhone. It will reportedly have a front glass cover and chassis, joined by a metal bezel and an edge-to-edge display that has no bezels on the top and bottom. Additionally, the front camera, Touch ID, speaker, and other sensors will apparently be embedded into the display.
Notably, Foxconn is said to be developing glass casing technology in order to maintain its position as a key iPhone assembler and capture orders for the device.
