Samsung to provide 80% of iPhone 12 OLED displays: Report
Samsung Display is expected to provide nearly 80 per cent of the OLED displays used in this year’s iPhone 12 lineup.
Apple is expected to launch four new iPhones under the iPhone 12 series in September or October which would include two premium variants.
According to a report in DigiTimes citing industry sources, “Samsung Display has obtained nearly 80 per cent of the overall panel orders for Apple’s next-generation iPhone series tentatively dubbed iPhone 12 slated for launch later this year”.
LG Display and BOE are other panel suppliers for the upcoming iPhones.
Samsung has been Apple’s OLED supplier since 2017 when the company finally gave its iPhone X this display feature.
The company is likely to supply display units for three of the upcoming iPhone 12 variants, the 5.4-inch entry-level option, the 6.1, and 6.7-inch iPhone Pro models.
Meanwhile, LG and BOE displays may be used in the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 with similar specs to the entry-level variant.
Media reports recently claimed that the Cupertino-based tech giant was “aggressively testing” BOE’s flexible OLED displays to cut costs and reduce dependency of South Korean players.
