Samsung might supply 60 percent of AMOLED panels for the upcoming iPhone

Newer OLED panels are more color accurate and power-efficient than ever, and they are expected to reach the power efficiency levels of LCD panels by next year even while displaying whites. So, Apple has finally seen the sense in opting for OLED displays for its upcoming iPhones.

We’ve already heard rumors about Apple ordering 100 million OLED panels from Samsung. According to Lee Choong-hoon, president and chief analyst of UBI Research, Samsung will supply 60 percent of OLED panels for the iPhone that is expected to be unveiled in 2018. The company’s Korean rival LG will be handling around 20 to 30 percent of the demand while the remaining panels are expected to come from Japan Display and Foxconn.

Similar to Galaxy S7 edge, Apple might also release an iPhone with a curved OLED display. According to Lee, 30 percent of iPhones built in 2018 will have curved displays, and that number is expected to reach to 80 percent by the year 2020.
