The iPhone 8 is already causing problems for Apple’s competitors
 

 
The iPhone 8 is rumored to have an OLED display , a first for Apple’s iPhone. But OLED screens have been in use for quite a few years, with Samsung being the most prominent smartphone maker to use such displays in its top smartphones. However, as we’ve said before, the iPhone is still the only phone that matters when it comes to setting new mobile trends. And a new report seems to further reinforce that idea, as it looks like iPhone 8 rumors were enough to convince some Apple competitors out there to bulk up on OLED supply.

According to Digitimes’s sources, some of Apple’s China-based rivals are worried that the iPhone maker will eat up all the available OLED display, and they have rushed to secure production capacity for small- and mid-sized OLED panels. The sources expect the increased OLED demand to cause shortages.

Samsung is going to be Apple’s main OLED display supplier this year, reports said, but even Samsung won’t be able to meet Apple’s demand in the future.

Apple is rumored to launch three new iPhones this year, including the iPhone 8 with an OLED display and two iPhone 7s versions that will have LCD screens.

The same unnamed sources said that LCD display demand will remain tight this year, as display size of mainstream smartphone models is moving from 5-inch to 5.5/5.7-inch screens.

The report also notes that other key components might face shortages this year, aside for displays, including memory products and optical sensing devices. The reason is similar, strong demand from China-based smartphone makers.

That's a lot of words to say Apple is finally doing what other companies have been doing for years. How do you spin "they're finally advancing some of their screens" into "setting new mobile trends"? Other companies are responding to perceived supply/demand issues, as they should.

...still, limited hardware/software; they're not posing a threat to anyone that uses their phone for anything other than social media and entertainment. No expanded memory, USB OTG, NFC, Open Source

Because only select producers were utilizing OLED screens...not every producer.

Now that Apple has put in a massive order, all those producers who still hadn't made that jump are doing so.

You confuse "other companies" with "all other companies" when in fact "other companies" as you used it, is a very small amount relative to total smartphone producers.

Thus, while "other companies" may have been ahead of the trend, apple is still the one that caused the foresight of supply shortage and subsequent "trend" of OLED purchasing. Those "other companies" producing phones with OLED screens didn't cause a supply/demand shakeup...Apple did.

Seeing other people go so hard in cell phone debates really makes me feel good about myself.

What a stupid disagreement.

I hate to turn this into Apple vs Android but...

The one complaint I hear from friends and fam with Androids is that "Apple is too restrictive".

This is true but you need restrictions in order to almost guarantee certain performance and behavior. I am happy to have a restrictive phone as I want a phone that works, all the time.

My fam who have unrestricted phones also have issues when they over do some sh*t on their phones.

I used to hack all my phones years ago and got tired of it. I work in tech but def want to keep my phone low tech as I need it working at all times. I do too much and rely on a working phone at all times. Apple is all I need. Best GUI. Best hardware.

My only complaint ... I just got this 7Plus when it came out. Not buying an 8 unless I can get $700 for my 7Plus. Smh. This every year sh*t is impossible to keep up with
