Therefore, TPK and GIS are expected to significantly benefit from Apple's orders for OLED-based 3D Touch solution. The quote is allegedly $18-22 Dollars, 150% higher than the cost of manufacturing the 3D Touch solution for current generation devices, reports the Economic Daily News via DigiTimes. Whereas Apple now pays anywhere from $7-9 for the 3D Touch panels on existing iPhones, that figure will reportedly be bumped up to the $18-22 range for the iPhone 8.

Patently Apple posted a report in March titled "Apple Suppliers GIS and TPK are Building New Capacity to Handle Apple's Next-Gen 3D OLED Touch Panels".

By now, we have already accepted that there is a lot of truth to the rumors about a special anniversary iPhone 8 with an OLED display.

Earlier this month, JPMorgan analysts estimated that the iPhone 8's bill of materials (BOM) could cost Apple an additional $75-$80.

Tom Hardy Will Play Venom, Ruben Fleischer Will Direct
Venom made his first big-screen appearance in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3", where he was portrayed by Topher Grace . Currently, Kurtzman is busy in post-production on Universal Pictures' The Mummy reboot, which is due out in June.

It's worth noting that the Digitimes report corroborates a previous report claiming that Apple's iPhone 8 will easily be the most expensive iPhone Apple has ever released, by a wide margin at that. According to a recent research note from Goldman Sachs, the base level iPhone 8 model will sport 128GB of storage and will cost $1,000.

The Apple's iconic flagship smartphone will take things to the next stage once the impending iPhone 8 is officially released later this year.

Apple's iPhone 8 is rumored to come with a glass body and a stainless steel frame. The size of the OLED display itself remains a mystery with speculations ranging from 5-inches to 5.8-inches.

The iPhone 8 is believed to have an edge-to-edge OLED display that completely removes the top and bottom bezels up front. Apple is also rumored to debut the 4.7-inch iPhone 7s and 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus. There is a serious difference between LCD and OLED displays, however, which apparently requires a different technique to be used for 3D Touch implementation.
