Apple Orders 80 Million Samsung OLEDs For iPhone 14
Samsung Display will supply Apple with 80 million OLED displays for the new iPhone 14, furthering the collaboration between the two companies.
Mass production and deliver will occur in the third quarter of the year, with the iPhone 14 sporting four models: iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, for which 38.17 million screens will be provided, and the 14 Pro and Pro Max, which will sport the higher-end OLEDs.
The iPhone OLED production job was reportedly meant to go to BOE, but design changes has seen Samsung Display remain Apple’s largest supplier.
The new iPhone will also sport Samsung’s image sensors, resulting in Samsung’s hot pursuit of Sony’s market dominance in that sector.
According to Korea IT news, Samsung Display will be supplying both low-temperature polycrystalline oxide-thin film transistor based OLEDs, and low-temperature polysilicon-thin film transistor based OLEDs.
