It's all about the iPhone 8 now

If you are one of those lucky, chosen few with an iPhone 7 (and a set of wireless headphones) then maybe look away, because it looks like your glistening Piano Black® SUPER phone could be out of date in less than a year.

The claim is that Apple's Asian suppliers have been asked to increase production of "thinner organic light-emitting displays" and submit prototypes with better resolution than ones made by rivals Samsung.

While an OLED display would have the benefit of both increased screen quality and flexibility, it would almost certainly mean the iPhone 8 would take another price jump due to production costs.

Although, there's also a good chance that Apple may decide not to release the model because it is "one of more than 10 prototypes being considered."
