Apple launched the iPhone 12 series smartphones a couple of months back, marking the first-ever lineup of phones in which every model features an OLED display panel.
With the increased demand, Apple is now expected to ship the highest number of OLED-featuring iPhones next year. And with that, Samsung Display is reportedly the one to benefit, thanks to the increased supply of OLED panels.
The Cupertino-based giant is expected to ship around 160 to 180 million units of iPhones with OLED displays next year, which includes the combined estimate of iPhone 12 and the upcoming iPhone 13 models.
A report from The Elec, citing sources aware of the matter, claims that Samsung is expected to ship OLED panels for around 140 million iPhones next year. On the other hand, LG Display is expected to supply around 30 million panels while the remaining 10 million panels will be sourced from China-based BOE.
While the Korean companies predict that Apple will source around 10 million OLED screens from BOE, the Chinese company is estimating that number to be 20 million. However, it remains to be seen if Apple actually ends up getting panels from BOE given that the company has failed to meet Apple’s standard
Further, the display technology for the upcoming iPhone 13 is expected to be advanced compared to the iPhone 12 models. As per the reports, two of the four models debuting next year will use low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LPTO) thin-film transistors (TFT) but BOE lags behind in this compared to Samsung Display and LG Display.
