How the iPhone 8 is going to revolutionize the future of smartphones | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Apple will launch the much talked about and vaunted iPhone 8 next year and it is said to feature a curved display. While they aren't the first to do this, it is set to be a huge driving force for mobile devices with flexible displays.

Apple’s iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone ever to feature a curved screen. However, analysts from IHS quoted by Digitimes say that Apple’s flexible AMOLED display adoption would “dramatically drive up expected demand for flexible AMOLED panels.”
Samsung will be a huge beneficiary of this as they are supplying AMOLED screens to Apple and with Apple will be many other companies that will make the switch to curved OLED screens. 
Vivo and Xiaomi have already launched handsets with flexible screens in 2016, and many other manufacturers have plans to develop curved or foldable smartphones in the near future. Apple is seen as a big catalyst in this department following the release of the iPhone 8.
“During 2016, many smartphone manufacturers have pressured display panel makers to supply them with more flexible AMOLEDs for their new smartphone designs, however, due to limited production capacity only a few players had their orders met in quantity,” IHS analyst Jerry Kang said. “With new form factors entering the marketplace next year to entice consumers, smartphone manufacturers will find themselves locked in a fierce battle with one another as they jostle to win market share for their new smartphone models featuring dual-edge curved and foldable AMOLED displays.”
“Consumer device manufacturers will eventually move from conventionally designed flat and rectangular form factors to the latest curved, foldable or rollable screens, but only once their product roadmap for newer, innovative devices becomes more mature,” Kang noted.
What the curved iPhone 8 may very well do is make curved smartphones a thing again because as we all know, whatever Apple does, others kind of follow suit. So we may very well be on the cusp of a new era of curved smartphones with Apple leading the way with the iPhone 8
