Are Technical Indicators Looking Better For Apple Inc. (AAPL), Coherent, Inc. (COHR)

Apple has been aiming to adopt OLED technology because of its vibrant colours and lower energy consumption but has been hampered by limited availability

Are you looking to watch the iPhone 8 event livestream online? While the premium model will be the first iPhone to reach a four-figure price tag, Apple fans will likely say that it is worth it, and are already looking forward to knowing all about the device in a week from now. Sources told the publication that LG, which supplies LCD screens for existing iPhone models, is targeting 2019 for full-fledged shipments of its OLED screens. Bloomberg reported earlier this summer that the company is at work on facial recognition technology to unlock phones, a 3D sensor and a dedicated AI chip.

Ever since the iPhone 5 that launched five years ago in September 2012, Apple charged at least $649 for a new entry level memory iPhone.

Only a few days remain before Apple unveils several new products, though it is the iPhone 8 that is getting most of the attention. The handset will come with Apple's iOS 11 and this is expected to be released to existing devices the same week that the new iPhone 8 goes on sale. That means prospective customers probably shouldn't expect to be playing with a redesigned iPhone by the end of this month, or even next.

Apple supplier Wistron dropped a massive hint when an exec said, 'new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, ' according to Nikkei Asian Review.

Apple has introduced major new metallic colours in each of its new phones: a yellow gold with the iPhone 6, which was followed by a pinky, rose gold in the 6s. Verizon, for example, now charges $27.08 a month for 24 months with a zero down payment to get an iPhone 7.

Nonetheless, Apple has taken Samsung on board as the exclusive provider of OLED panels for the iPhone and Samsung is reportedly making 160 million panels for them.

So what is it with all the 8 that some carriers and retailers have been suggesting.

Samsung is rumored to be the primary supplier of new OLED screens that are brighter, more colorful and more power efficient than the LCD display Apple typically uses. It's expected to start at $649 for the standard size and $769 for the larger-screen iPhone 7S Plus with the same storage options and colors.
