Although they are serious competitors on the smartphone market, Apple and Samsung also have a very good relationship of cooperation because the US company relies heavily on the key components of its South Korean competitor.

Such an element is the display of phones and now it seems that Samsung is preparing to monopolize the business for many years to come.

“According to industries sources on the 28th June, Samsung Display has started constructing 6th generation flexible OLED production line called ‘A5 (tentative name)’, which has production capacity of […] up to 270,000 panels per month […] It will have to make investments between $20.1 billion and 21.0 billion.”

Using OLED panels on the iPhone can be a long-term and profitable initiative for Samsung. The predictions are that only in 2018 the company will produce 180 million panels for Apple phones.

Apple paid Samsung $4.3 billion for OLEDs for iPhone

In order to provide the necessary production resources for this, Samsung will invest $21 billion to build two more OLED plants. They will begin work by 2019, and when this happens, Samsung will be able to make another 270,000 OLEDs a month from them.

In this way, the South Koreans will be the main and largest display provider for the iPhone, and for any other manufacturer who decides to use OLED panels in their phones or other devices.
