According to a report on Apple’s supply chain, Apple may be planning to increase its supply of OLED displays over the next two years, indicating that the company plans to use the enhanced displays for every iPhone model by 2019. The report claims that Apple will purchase 60 million OLED iPhone screen this year, most likely for the new device currently dubbed “iPhone 8”, while the updated “iPhone 7s” and “7s Plus” models are expected to stick with LCD displays. The displays will most likely be manufactured by Samsung’s displays division.
OLED displays do not require a backlight, allowing for thinner displays with higher contrast compared with an LCD screen. While OLED displays have been available on mobile devices for several years, Apple has yet to make an iPhone that uses the display technology.
