We are not expecting next years iPhone 7 to come with a new OLED display although it looks like the 2017 iPhone 7S may feature one.
Apple are apparently in talks with a number of display makers about them producing an OLED display for a future iPhone model, which will probably be the iPhone 7S.
The news comes in a report from Digitimes which have said that Appleis currently in talks with LG Display and Japan Display about producing these new displays.
Apple has outlined its requirements in terms of expected specifications for the displays and supply needed to meet iPhone shipments, which are expected to continue surpassing the 200 million mark a year over the next few years, the report added.
Currently there are three main panel makers looking to compete for orders from Apple: LG Display, Japan Display (JDI) and JOLED. The report indicated that panel makers in Japan are highly concerned over Apple’s reported decision since they mainly focus on LCD production and development, with LCDs accounting for roughly 80% of JDI’s total business.
As soon as we get some more details on when Apple will decide to start using OLED displays in their new iPhones, we will let you guys know.
