We are all aware of the big problem Apple has had in supplying the OLED screens for the new iPhone X, and hence one of the factors in the delays we have experienced for some of the users . Samsung has not been able to provide all the necessary screens to Apple, but it seems that soon it will not be the only company providing this type of panel as will be added to LG sooner than expected.
The rumours that LG will be one of the companies that will provide Apple with OLED panels are not from now , but they have been on the table for several months already, and this agreement that seemed far away would be closer than expected ending the exclusivity that Samsung has in this sense and the possible price reduction for this so necessary competitiveness.
Currently there is no signed agreement as the Korea Herald has pointed out, but the statements that have been heard according to this media cited have a tone that suggests that it is already being finalized.
These rumors of a deal between Apple and LG began when an investment of $13.7 billion was made in the production line of LG’s OLED screens. Samsung is sure to start worrying as it will soon run out of money to be alone in the OLED display business for Apple.
LG will not be the only company providing this type of panel but a Chinese manufacturer, BOE , would also have offered to build several OLED panel production lines that would be exclusive to Apple.
Will this competition lead to a price reduction on future iPhones? Leave us your opinion in the comment box.
