Apple is rumored to have cut iPhone X production and this has apparently left Samsung with excess OLED displays.
According to a recent report, Samsung is looking for new customers for its OLED displays as it now has excess production capacity for these displays after Apple has changed its requirements.
It would also appear that some of Samsung’s competitors in China are expanding their production capacity of these displays.
Samnsung’s OLED displays retail for about $100 each and this is one of the reasons why Apple’s iPhone X comes with a higher then normal price tag of $999. The higher price has apparently stopped some companies using these displays in their handsets.
A normal LCD display is around 40% cheaper than an OLED display, this is apparently one reason why smartphone makers have not switched over fully to OLED.
