Apple suppliers Samsung and LG Display have reportedly kicked off production of OLED panels for the upcoming iPhone 13 family, with Samsung focused on the 120Hz ProMotion screens.
Some iPhone 13 models to be released in 2021 may take advantage of LG-made OLED panels with low-power LPTO backplane technology, resulting in a more power-efficient device.
With this year's Worldwide Developers Conference now officially behind us, even more attention can be put ahead toward the iPhone 12 lineup, which is expected to arrive this fall (with iOS 14 on board!).
As long as Apple's plans aren't completely derailed, we will more than likely see the company launch a new lineup of iPhones, and if the rumors are true all of the new models will boast OLED displays.
LG Display said on Tuesday that it would invest 3 trillion won, which works to about $2.6 billion in America dollars, in its organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels production line in Korea.
It was only yesterday that the first glimpse of a new LG-branded 4K display surfaced. And now Apple is officially selling the brand new external display to would-be buyers.
When it comes to the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display panels for use in smartwatches, LG Display is the king of the hill thanks in no small part to Apple Watch.
LG Display is likely to deliver between 2 million and 4 million OLED panels to Apple for future iPhones. The move would end Samsung's monopoly here and could help to accelerate broader adoption of OLED screens, according to Jerry Kang from IHS Markit.
LG debuted three new Thunderbolt 3 UltraFine monitors last week at CES and we got to go hands-on and check them out.
The three models include an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio monitor, 4K monitors capable of being daisy chained, and a 5K monitor.
A bendable iPhone may be coming in 2020.
As Apple is said to be bankrolling its supplier LG Display's OLED expansion, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities yesterday shared his thoughts on the matter.
Major Apple supplier LG Display is reportedly investing a whopping $13.5 billion over the next three years in order to boost output of OLED panels for TVs and smartphones, which Apple is widely expected to adopt for this year's premium iPhone 8 model.
