Over the past few weeks, a few rumors hinted that Apple may adopt OLED display for the upcoming iPhone 8 — which is still several months away from launch.
According to a new rumor, Samsung is expected to be the exclusive supplier of OLED displaysfor atleast two years for the iPhone 8 which is rumored to launch next year.
Samsung Display has a big name in OLED displays for smartphones, and apparently has a monopoly in it with over 95 percent market share. The scale on which the Korean company manufactures the displays is high so it should be a good move for Apple since iPhones tend to do well right after they hit the market. And, this is what Apple wants in order to meet high demand so it doesn’t have to wait for the manufacturers to supply them with OLEDs displays when they need them the most.
Samsung is also expected to invest a huge chunk of money in building more display production lines over the next few years in order to meet the evergrowing demand for OLED displays. There’s no official word from the companies about any such agreement, but it would be a wise move for the Cupertino company to go for it as Samsung has deployed OLED display panels in its own flagship devices as well.
