The network has reported that the LG Display will supply OLED panels for the iPhone X Plus. According to rumors, Apple
New report says LG Display will releasemore than 15 million OLED panels for iPhone X Plus 2018. The company opens new plants to win orders from Apple, while Apple and Google invest billions of dollars in it to increase production.
Even if LG Display is able to increasethe scale of production, the quality of their panels will remain in question. The Google Pixel 2 XL was the only smartphone from LG last year with an OLED panel, and many have even criticized its quality. For iPhone X, Apple used Samsung panels. Now the Korean company is leading the OLED market, and its panels are used in 95% of smartphones. In addition, the company's technology is more advanced than the rest.
Apple likes to split orders between severalsuppliers and does not like to hope for one specific. Perhaps the company is just looking for additional options besides Samsung. It is still unknown whether the rumors are true, so we can only wait. LG Display will be able to cope with the scale of production, but the company will have to work on the quality of its panels. She at least have to catch up with Samsung.
Even if Apple only tries to contract with LG Display, it will be easier for companies to do business with Samsung, as everyone is afraid of competition.
