iPhone-7-concept

Apple plans to move to OLED technology for displays of the iPhone in 2018, according to the Japanese edition Nikkei. Apple has already informed its providers, according to another source, LG Display already planning the production. Recently it became clear that the LG plans to open a new Korean factory worth 4.2 billion US dollars, but there is no information on whether it is connected with the plans of Apple.

Currently Apple offers a single product with OLED technology – Apple Watch, whose exclusive supplier is LG. According to reports, Samsung will join LG, and will be able to cope with the mass production of OLED panels, LG may no such capacity.

Earlier this month, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that OLED will not be used from the iPhone until at least 2019, citing continued investment in manufacturing LCD from companies like Foxconn, which is the largest supplier of parts for Apple.
