Game Over for Samsung: LG Starts Making OLED Displays for iPhone
LG Display has started production of OLED panels for Apple’s iPhones, and the first batch will be ready ahead of the new generation’s debut in September, according to a new report.
The move would technically allow Apple to reduce reliance on Samsung, the sole supplier of organic light-emitting diode screens for the iPhone X and until today, the exclusive display partner for the Cupertino-based tech giant for the 2018 iPhone generation.
A report from Bloomberg reveals that LG Display will manufacture between 2 million and 4 million OLEDs, but output should be increased in the coming months. There’s a chance that LG would supply OLED screens for one of the two OLED iPhone models launching this year, while Samsung would remain the exclusive manufacturer of the other.
