Last year, Apple released three iPhones: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The iPhone X uses an OLED screen, which is exclusively provided by Samsung.
However, Samsung's exclusive supply of OLED screens for Apple will soon be broken, because another supplier, LG Display, will also provide OLED screens for Apple.
According to Apple Insider, informed sources, LG Display will provide Apple with 2 million to 4 million OLED panels for the future of the iPhone, which will undermine Samsung's dominance in Apple's panel supply.
HIS Markit analyst Jerry Kang revealed that LG Display is of crucial importance to Apple because it allows Apple to reduce its reliance on Samsung and accelerate the popularity of OLED screens. It also means that the price of OLED screens is expected to be lowered.
If LG can deliver this year, then in 2018 there will be a small number of iPhones using OLED screens provided by LG.
According to previous exposure information, Apple will launch three iPhones this year: 5.8 inches, 6.1 inches and 6.5 inches. 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch will use OLED screens, while the 6.1-inch iPhone will use an LCD screen. All three iPhones are Liu Haiping.
