Samsung Display has won a contract worth $4.3 billion with Apple to supply an additional 60 million OLED panels for the next generation iPhone, reports TheInvestor Korea. This is actually the second contract between the two companies after last year were agreed 100 million displays for iPhone 8.

Apple is expected to move to OLED precisely with this year’s iPhone 8, which we expect in September. Apple delivers nearly 200 million iPhone phone every year, so the combined number of 160 million OLED panel will actually represents about 80% of produced displays.

According to initial rumors Apple will switch to OLED only for the premium version of the iPhone, which will appear as third version of the standard and Plus versions. Other sources, however, say that Apple will not differentiate so this year’s flagship and will use OLED for all variants. None of the companies has not officially commented on the deal.
