Apple to switch back to Samsung as LCD supplier
Apple currently uses LG as LCD supplier, according to recent information is Apple looking back to Samsung cause of the better technology. Samsung used heavily thin glass in its Galaxy S series smartphones. Intel also adopted thin glass process to its LCD for ultrabooks. Samsung and Apple aren’t big friends since Samsung used the inspiration of Apple. Apple decided to move away more and more from Samsung as supplier. If this is true, than this is a great win for Samsung instead of Apple. Expected is that Samsung will be the screen supplier for the lower cost iPhone and other Apple products.
The industry is guessing that one of the reasons Apple decided to come back to Samsung Display is because of the thin glass. Samsung Display’s thin glass vendors have made a very visible growth in the industry, because Samsung Display, unlike LG Display, relies on its vendors for most of the thin glass processes.
Ok, other reasons could be that Samsung Display is that big to develop right on time high amount of LCD displays for companies such as Apple. Which means for Apple no delay in future products. In the past a iPhone was almost made 50% out of Samsung Electronics parts.
Lets´s wait and see!
