Apple is looking forward to introduce OLED displays on iPhones next year according to a new report from Nikkei via (9to5Mac). The latest report comes months after it was reported that Apple might bring OLED displays to iPhone in 2018. Hence it looks like the company has decided to make the shift to OLED a year earlier.
Earlier rumors suggested that Apple may approach Samsung to provide OLED display panels for their 2018 iPhones. However, new rumors state that the company is now in talks with JDI (Japan Display Inc) to provide the same.
The touchscreen on a smartphone is probably the biggest consumer of battery life compared to other components and devices. This is why despite manufacturers trying their best to increase capacities, the battery life still remains poor especially since the display size and resolution too keep increasing.
A new report suggests that future iPhones from Apple will use OLED displays manufactured by Samsung in 2018. The report is more of a rumor than a confirmed agreement between the two companies.
LG, one of the world’s leading display makers announced today that it plans to invest 1.05 Trillion Korean Won (Around US$ 900 Million) to setup a new production line to produce 6th generation flexible OLED panels in order to become a clear leader in the flexible OLED display market.
Samsung has just announced two new and unique displays – one is a transparent display while the other one is a mirrored display.
