The next iPhone may have a curved screen, according to multiple reports from Apple’s supply chain in Asia.

The company has placed a large order for Samsung’s curved OLED screens, according to Business Insider. The report fuels rumors that at least one of the “iPhone 8” models expected to launch later this year will feature the curved screen. If true, it would be the first Apple product to feature the cutting-edge display.

Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple has placed an order for 70 million units of the OLED panels from Samsung for one of three different iPhone models released in late 2017. The same report claims the next iPhone will be waterproof and capable of wireless charging.
