here’s why apple may continue to depend on samsung for next two years
The South Korean technology company was the only supplier of the iPhone x oled screen.
It was later reported that Apple could use LG, Japanese monitors and BOE as a supplier of future iPhone screens.
While LG has worked with Samsung on this year\'s iPhone OLED screen, the Japanese Display OLED panel may not reach the iPhone soon.
A new report says OLED iPhone screens from Japanese monitors may be at least two years away.
This also means that Apple will still rely on Samsung in the supply of some OLED screens.
Reports from the Japan Times say Japanese monitors are exploring the idea of mass production of OLED panels in domestic factories.
It is said that the production of OLED panels in a local factory, which is the Hakusan factory of JDI, will result in OLED panels in 2-2. 5 years.
However, it will take about four years to build a separate OLED factory in China to bring this product.
The cost will be higher.
\"We don\'t have three or four years to wait for the OLED launch of JDI.
Our major customers can\'t wait that long, \"said Winston Lee, CEO of Suva Investment Holdings LCC, who is helping make OLED panels for displays in Japan.
\"The market is changing very quickly and Chinese OLED manufacturers will eventually catch up.
So it seems that Apple will have to continue to rely on OLED screens from South Korean tech giants LG and Samsung to buy future iPhones.
For those who don\'t know, Apple invested $2 in 2017.
The setup cost for the lg oled production line is 7 billion and now seems to have been repaid.
