LG Display picked as second OLED supplier for iPhones

LG Display picked as second OLED supplier for iPhones

LG has received a thumbs up from Apple to supply flexible OLED display panels for the upcoming iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.

A man walks out of the headquarters of LG Display in Seoul, October 20, 2011. It doesn't sound like LG will be ready to produce the bulk of an iPhone generation's OLED screens anytime soon, but any competition for Samsung is good news for Apple, which obviously wants to reduce its reliance on an arch-rival, as well as negotiate better prices for now exorbitant displays. LG Display has also allegedly begun preparing for mass production at its new OLED manufacturing plant.

The sources said LGD's sixth-generation flexible OLED panels recently passed a series of Apple's quality tests.

If confirmed, the supply deal with a major smartphone maker could help LG Display gain a further foothold in the OLED display market.

Tropical Storm Isaac Intermediate Advisory Number 19A
While now classified as a hurricane, Helene will be downgraded to a storm by the time it reaches the shores of Northern Ireland. Meteorologists are also keeping an eye on yet another tropical disturbance that's spinning in the western Gulf of Mexico.

LG's mainstay, older-technology liquid crystal display business is struggling with Chinese rivals and panel price declines.

The factory has reportedly only been operational for test runs until not long ago, with a separate E5 OLED facility "mainly" utilized for R&D projects. It will be commencing two more OLED manufacturing lines soon so we may not see restricted availability of the XS and the XS Max this time as it was the case with iPhone X past year. The iPhone X released past year also sports an OLED display panel, but following the release of the new lineup, it has been discontinued, sadly.

Apple introduced two new OLED iPhones, the 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and the 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max, both of which were followed by the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR earlier this week. For those unaware, according to a report from IHS Markit, the priciest component of iPhone X is the OLED screen.
