BOE, one of the leading display maker in China, has been trying to enter the list of suppliers for Apple for some time, and now it seems that the company has finally been able to do so with the upcoming iPhone 12 models.
As per the latest report, BOE has supplied flexible OLED panels for the iPhone 12 models to Apple. However, the order is said to be of limited quantity only as LG Display is still the tech giant’s second choice for display suppliers and Samsung Display being the primary supplier for the display panel.
Earlier, it was reported that the BOE, which is already a display supplier for MacBook and iPad, will be supplying OLED screens for the upcoming iPhones as Apple tries to reduce dependence on Samsung. But some reports indicated that the Chinese firm didn’t meet Apple’s standard but could enter the supply chain later.
Now, the company is expected to play a bigger role as an iPhone display supplier for next year’s models. China-based BOE has already set up a new production line called B11 (aka Apple line) which is specifically dedicated to the production of OLED panels for iPhones in the second half of 2021.
Meanwhile, Apple is all set to launch its next-generation iPhone 12 models on 13th October and has already sent out invites. This time, the company will be launching four models — all of which have an OLED screen and 5G connectivity support.
