BOE was supposed to supply Samsung with OLED panels for its upcoming Galaxy S21 series but the Chinese manufacturer didn’t meet Samsung’s requirements. It was also revealed that Apple skipped over the Chinese display manufacturer in favor of Samsung Display for the OLED panels it will use in its new iPhones.
A new report now says BOE is still in line to supply Apple with OLED panels for its phones but starting next year. According to the French blog iPhoneAddict, BOE executives revealed to Korean media that they have a production line called B11. This production line is also known as the “Apple line” as it is specifically dedicated to the production of OLED panels for iPhones in the second half of 2021.
Next year’s iPhone should launch as the iPhone 13 but we don’t know how many models there will be. BOE’s panels may be used for just one of the models along with those from LG Display and Samsung Display.
