Apple iPhone 12 OLED Displays will reportedly be manufactured by Samsung and LG

The advanced, thinner displays for the iPhone 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max will reportedly be made by Samsung whereas the iPhone 12’s display is expected to be split between Samsung and LG. This means that South Korean manufacturers might have a monopoly on manufacturing iPhone displays, and BOE, a Chinese display manufacturer, might not contribute to manufacturing displays for iPhones at all.

The advanced displays that Samsung is expected to supply to Apple are known as on-cell touch OLED panels. According to the source, these panels have the touch function built-in, unlike traditional OLED panels that require a touch film to be placed on the panel. Not only will this new technology lead to thinner displays, but it will also reduce the cost of making these display panels.

“Although Apple had been sticking with film touch method since its first iPhone, Samsung Display has succeeded in drawing a change from Apple by actively promoting Y-OCTA technology to Apple,'' said a representative for the industry. “It is heard that Samsung Display also suggested shocking terms in order to obtain an order from Apple.”.”

Apart from the launch of the successors to the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple is also expected to launch a fourth iPhone that will have support for 5G. Early next year, we’ll also be seeing the highly-anticipated iPhone SE 2.
