Samsung is the only supplier of OLED screens for the iPhone X, and the South Korean giant is expected to ship up to 200 million units this year alone. Apple, meanwhile, wants to launch three iPhone X successors in 2018, reports said, two of which featuring OLED screens. The iPhone maker is also interested in diversifying its OLED screen supply chain to reduce its reliance on Samsung. Deals with other OLED display makers should help Apple secure better deals, and make iPhone X successors more affordable.
LG Display is one of the companies interested in Apple’s business, and a new report says that LG will provide 6.5-inch screens for the bigger iPhone X model supposed to launch this year.
