2020 iPhone models to use OLED display panels from Samsung, LG: Report
Samsung may have finally succeeded in taking Apple into using its Y-OCTA OLED panels. Just a year ago, there were rumours that the 2019 generation iPhones will make the jump. But now, a fresh report claims that the 2020 iPhone models are set to use OLED display panels from Samsung and LG.
According to a report from ETNews, Samsung will be the exclusive OLED supplier for the 5.4” and 6.7” iPhones. Specifically, it will supply on-cell touch flexible OLED panels. While on the other hand, LG will supply film touch method-based OLED panels.
This clearly means that the Chinese panel producer BOE will not be a supplier of OLED panels to Apple for iPhones aside from Samsung and LG. The Y-OCTA technology uses on-cell touch sensing, so it doesn’t require a separate touch-sensitive layer. This reduces the manufacturing cost and also fasten the manufacturing process.
According to ETNews, Samsung is the only company that can mass produce such panels at the scale Apple needs them. In order to stabilize supply and demand, Apple has also chosen LG Display to be a supplier of a 6.1-inch film touch method-based OLED panel.
Well, Apple is expected to launch two more phones next year – iPhone SE 2 using a 4.7” LCD and the iPhone 12 non-Pro with a 6.1” OLED. This means the iPhone 12 will be coming with an OLED display from LG and Samsung.
