Apple's next iPhone will feature at least one model with a curved OLED screen, people familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal. Apple has been studying flexible OLED screens similar to those used by rival Samsung and asked suppliers for prototypes last year, according to the report. People with direct knowledge of Apple's production plans said the company has decided to go ahead with the technology, and it will release a phone model using the OLED screens this year. To date, the iPhone has always had a LCD screen.
