Report: Apple orders 70 million OLED displays from Samsung for the next iPhones

iPhone 8 concept

It is rumored that Apple’s next iPhone will feature a 5.2-inch curved OLED display and the recent report suggests it might be true. According to a report from Nikkei, Apple has placed an order for 70 million OLED display panels from Samsung for use in the upcoming iPhones (presumably iPhone 8).

The report reads, “A supply chain source familiar with iPhone designs revealed the size of the order. It will be the first time Apple adopts a curved OLED screen for its iPhones, marking a major overhaul and generating high expectations for the model.” Samsung is said to produce as many as 95 million panels by the end of the year to meet the exceeding demands.

“Apple has ordered 70 million units of OLED panels from Samsung this year, while Samsung is preparing to churn out as many as 95 million for Apple in 2017, in case demand exceeds expectations,” said David Hsieh, senior director at research company IHS Markit.

Apparently, Apple was unable to find a reliable source for OLED displays and finally decided to join hands with the Samsung considering their experience in the similar market.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 will reportedly come with curved OLED display, wireless charging, some sort of face unlock feature, and it will cost more than $1000.

According to a recent report by the investment bank Barclays, Apple is planning to bring the True Tone display technology into their upcoming iPhones. Barclays reported all three iPhones (iPhone 7S, 7S Plus, and the iPhone 8) will come with the True Tone displays. You can read more on it here.

Stay tuned for the updates.
