iPhone 8 – the smartphone will feature an OLED display

iPhone 8 – the smartphone will feature an OLED display

Apple
Although Apple is still popular and it gets a huge success with each iPhone, users are always complaining about one thing: the battery life. This feature is expected to change for the better with iPhone 8, the first iPhone that will come with OLED display and a larger battery. Although iPhone 8 should have similar dimensions to the iPhone 7, it should feature a battery with larger capacity.

That percentage does not necessarily reflects the same percentage increase in terms of lifespan, mainly because OLED displays are more battery resource demanding than LCDs.
