Reports have confirmed that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is set to incorporate OLED display technology in its upcoming ‘tenth-anniversary’ iPhone. However, due to the current supply shortage of OLED displays, the tech company will not be able to incorporate such technology in its less-pricier iPhone models that are set to release before the end of the year.
The latest speculation has suggested that the world supply of OLED technology is set to increase, which means that each one of its 2018 iPhone variants could boast OLED displays. Currently, Samsung is the largest producer of OLED displays, and it is also meeting the display requirements of Apple’s upcoming tenth-anniversary iPhone. Samsung may look to step up its OLED screen production which will be incorporated into Apple’s 2018 line-up.
Also, Apple is possibly ready to make a billion dollar investment in LG Display to assist the latter in further expanding its OLED screen production. This way, Apple will have a steady and reliable stream of OLED production.
Every iPhone released has sported LCD technology. However, an OLED display is specifically designed to not only produce brighter colors but also be more efficient with energy. Hence, it’s high time Apple ditched its traditional use of an IPS LCD and incorporated OLED displays instead.
Hopefully, the world supply of OLED displays will be up to the mark shortly. Apple’s next flagship model, iPhone 8, is expected to enter the market before the closing stages of 2017.
