LG Display picked as second OLED supplier for iPhones - Electronic Times

Apple iPhone X

In the future, the South Korean tech giant might be able to partner with other smartphone manufacturers like Huawei, Xiaomi, and Oppo.

Till previous year, Samsung was the biggest supplier of for OLED screen panel for Apple iPhone X. Now, the iPhone maker has made changes in its OLED supply chain, resulting in Samsung losing the position of being the sole supplier for the particular component, reports The Korean Herald.

Unfortunately, Apple was forced to reconsider the partnership when LG ran into some manufacturing issues. In June, tipsters told Bloomberg that the display maker will initially produce 2 million to 4 million screens.

But the move would be very logical for Apple: Samsung's 95% OLED display market share means they can charge whatever they want for their handsome screens, which were the most expensive component of the iPhone X.

LG Display picked as second OLED supplier for iPhones: Electronic Times

It is not a mystery that Apple exclusively relies on Samsung Display, the display-making unit of Samsung Electronics, for OLED displays on its iPhone.

Since 2016, LG Display has signed contracts to supply OLED automotive panels with a number of automakers including Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen, with shipments to Mercedes-Benz for its E- and S-class sedans to kick off in 2020. The company had to swap the LCD for a flexible OLED panel to make the new design possible. LG's sixth-generation flexible OLED display panels have apparently now cleared a series of quality tests and the company is now gearing up for mass production on one of its plants. LG, on the other hand, neither confirmed nor denied the development.

Samsung Display, the display-making unit of Samsung Electronics, has been the sole OLED display vendor for the smartphone maker.
