Apple 2020 iPhone Models May be Use Samsung OLED Display Panels
Apple 2020 iPhone Models May be Use Samsung OLED Display Panels. Samsung Display will be the sole supplier of 2020 Apple iPhone line-up that will come with on-cell touch OLED panel, which is called aY-OCTA’ technology and is supplied to Samsung Electronics for its own smartphones. LG Display will supply film touch method-based OLED panels.
After ETNews reports that the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro models will come with 6GB RAM, quad cameras and 5G support, a new report by South Korean news outlet ETNews now suggests they will exclusively use Samsung OLED panels. iPhone 12 lineup will include models with 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch OLED panels. For those who are unaware, Samsung is already the primary supplier for the displays on iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max but the LCD panels used on iPhone 11 are being supplied by LG and Sharp.
The Y-OCTA technology uses on-cell touch sensing, so it doesn’t require a separate touch-sensitive layer. This makes the display panel thinner and cheaper to manufacture (having fewer layers can reduce glare to boot).
The 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch new iPhone models set to be released in the fall of 2020 are expected to be applied with three different sizes of OLED 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.” a representative for the industry was quoted as saying.
Anyway, Apple is expected to launch two more phones next year – iPhone SE 2 using a 4.7” LCD and the iPhone 12 non-Pro with a 6.1” OLED.
Unlike the Pro models, Apple will source OLED panels for the iPhone 12 from both Samsung and LG. This means two things – no on-cell touch for the 6.1” phone and BOE is likely out as a potential supplier.
