Apple\'s OLED demand is on the rise this year, and the company is looking for ways not just to rely on Samsung to produce displays.
Now, a new report says Apple has placed large orders for production of OLED displays with LG.
According to South Korea\'s Korea Times, Apple is trying to win a second supplier this time and hopes to get 3 to 5 million OLED displays from LG.
The source, a senior executive of LG\'s subcontractor, said Apple will get about 3 to 5 million units from LG this time, and LG has wanted to increase production over the years.
This confirmed last month\'s report on Apple\'s efforts to make LG the second supplier of OLED panels, but the report indicates that LG will only provide 2 to 4 million units.
\"Apple wants to expand its partnership with LG from LCD to oled.
The key issue, however, is that LG has less oled capacity for portable gadgets than Samsung displays.
\"The quality of the LG V30 display is not as good as the OLED display in the Samsung Galaxy series,\" the executive said . \".
With less reliance on Samsung, Apple hopes to get a lucrative price tag for its OLED panel and lower the overall price of the iPhone model this year.
Both Apple and LG are expected to benefit a lot from the deal.
Apple will be able to set a lower price for its iPhone 2018 model, as it has been hit by the overall sales of the iPhone X, mainly because of its high price.
LG will be able to get a pie after the iPhone 2018 variant is expected to ship millions of units.
