Latest rumors said that Apple has made an order to Samsung for 100 million 5.5″ OLED panels in 2017. These displays are supposedly going to make their way to the 2017 iPhone Plus. Timing for the order indicates that the OLED screens will skip the iPhone 7 and only make it to the iPhone 7S.
One of the reason for Apple’s decision to go OLED could be because currently, its production cost is lower than LCD’s. It’ll be also interesting to see if rumors surface regarding Apple issuing a request to LG to manufacture OLED panels as a fallback. Up until now, the Korean company has been a key Apple partner in making panels for the iPhone.
