It seems that the inclusion of an OLED panel in the next iPhone would encourage other manufacturers to adopt it. Let’s see more details.
If there’s one thing that has characterized Apple since its inception, it’s making something that already existed into something completely revolutionary. There were already smartphones, but the iPhone came along; there were already fingerprint-based phones, but Apple integrated it into its form. This could happen again with the OLED panel of the next phone coming from Cupertino.
As we can see in Digitimes, if the rumours are true that the next iPhone 8 will integrate an OLED screen , which makes the blacks really black because they are dull pixels thus influencing a better autonomy, this would make the supply chains of these panels to run out of stock of these elements . This is why the rest of the manufacturers would be preparing their proposals in this area so as not to fall behind in market competition.
This is why a shortage of supplies is expected both in OLED panels and in memories and optical sensors for this year due to the fact that the demand from manufacturers such as Huawei or Vivo is increasing to face the hurricane of the bitten apple . Another trend that is expected for the supply chains this year is that the demand for large LCD panels, such as 5.5 and 5.7 inches, will be a little adjusted which would reflect the general trend of the market to make phones of increasing size.
Apple may start the supply shortage on both OLED and LCD panels as it is expected to launch three new iPhones this year, two of them with 4.7 and 5.5 inch LCD screens like their predecessors, in addition to the expected iPhone 8 which would include a 5 curved Samsung OLED panel. 1 or 5.2 inches .
As you can see, although there is still time for the launch of the new apple bite device, the supply chains are starting to prepare. Leave us in comments your opinion about the next iPhone 8 and what you think it will integrate as a star feature.
