Only Larger iPhone Will Get OLED Display - Rumor
As it was already mentioned on our website, either next year or in 2018, Apple may stop using IPS LCD displays in iPhones and switch to more advanced OLED screens instead. According to the latest report from reliable insiders, only the larger 5.5-inch iPhone model will get the widely-rumored OLED display, at least at the very beginning. The report comes from UBI Research that’s why it can be called trustworthy.
As noted by Lee Choong-hoon, president and chief analyst of UBI Research, only 30% of about 100 million iPhone units manufactured in 2018 will be equipped with curved OLED displays. The figure is expected to rise to 80% by 2020. It appears that initially, the new screen will be an exclusive part of the larger “Plus” model.
Rumors suggest that Samsung will become the main OLED display panels supplier. LG, Japan Display and Sharp may become secondary suppliers.
Apple hasn’t yet commented on the reports about its switch to OLED displays. Perhaps the company will shed some light on its plans later this year at the Worldwide Developers Conference or after the release of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Stay tuned for more details on the issue.
