According to a new report from Bloomberg, the four providers OLED screens for Apple will not be able to cover the required amount of demand for the new iPhone coming out in the next year 2017. This restriction could be extended until 2018.
These screens are more difficult to produce in large quantities than LCD, which means that Apple is tied to its suppliers, who are willing to produce the screens in the quantities necessary. Bloomberg reports that restrictions on this supply could force Apple to limit the use of the OLED display to only one version of the next iPhone, or to continue with current technology.
Although Apple and Samsung have an exclusive agreement for OLED screens for the year 2017, that does not guarantee that the company will be able to meet the demand of the apple company. For example, OLED displays supplies have been restricted to their own devices, like the Samsung Galaxy Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
A large number of OLED screens
he order given by Apple for its OLED screens indicates that will be increased to 5 inches in size, according to reports by Bloomberg. The Cupertino have ordered an initial amount of around 100 million units for next year, but Samsung Will be able to provide only a portion of that amount by the middle of that year. If Samsung is unable to meet this demand, Apple will face many problems.
On Tuesday, the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said Apple will likely release a new iPhone with OLED LCD screen with 4.7 and 5.5 inches. While it is very likely that these three new devices debut a design with a full glass finish in the back, the new iPhone OLED will have a curved screen at the edges. In addition, it has also been speculated that the iPhone OLEDs bring a 5.8 - inch screen without bevels .
Hopefully Apple will fix this problem because it takes time promising that this display technology will come to their devices. If not, at least we can settle for an improved version of the iPhone 8 with OLED display.
