New reports surfaced claiming that Samsung and LG are hoping to introduce Apple to the benefits of OLED display technology by 2018, on the way trying to convince Mac maker to switch the display tech that has been traditionally included on its iPhones.
So, the 2018 iPhone will be called the iPhone 8? Make no mistake about it, LG and Samsung aren’t making a concentrated effort to satisfy Apple two switch over to OLED displays and dropthe LCD screens as a corporate favor. Both South Korean firms are the two biggest players in the production of organic light-emittimg diode (OLED) technology. Best part here would be for the two is to engage Apple in this particular conversation in the hope of assuring the iPhone maker to utilize this particular screen tech in future iPad hardware as well.
In fact both the Samsung and LG are pretty much investing the possibility of generating new revenue streams. Two companies are well-known for producing excellent, and generally successful, mobile hardware that’s powered by the Android platform. With iOS closing the gap on Android sales market share, significantly the interest in pushing OLED technology to Apple seems to be a selfish one designed to capture a new consumer base that would order a outstanding amount of these displays.
Speaking to the reporting publication, an annonymous source suggested that “Samsung Display has recently renewed talks with Apple to supply its small-sized OLED displays for the next iPhones to be released in a few years“. If Apple does make any interest in switching to the OLED tech provided by samsung Display, then it’s likely that such an integration wouldn’t make it onto a production device until approximately 2018. That should take use to the i Phone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus based on Apple’s current naming and release schedules.
The next iPhone – the so-called iPhone 7 will be left alive with the LCD displays. Apple is a revenue generating machine with profits that most companies could only dream of. Integrating LCD tech into iPhones is clearly the affordable and cheaper option when compared to OLED displays, which itturns yields higher profits for iOS outfit. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see if the benefits of OLED over LCD internally outweigh the appeal of higher proficts per device.
Reminder you that Apple has already used LG and Samsung made OLED displays in one of its new products, Apple Watch. If you’re one of those played with Apple smartwatch, you would really experience how great the display looks with its deeper blacks and all. Here’s to only expect that Apple adopts OLED tech for iPhone displays sooner rather than later.
