Apple is likely to use high-end OLED displays on many of its other devices besides the iPhone. This plan is not only because Apple wants it but also because it could be the solution to the dispute in contract with Samsung Display.
According to the sheet ETNews, Apple and Samsung are considering various solutions to resolve contract disputes between the two parties. In particular, Apple may have considered the solution to buy more OLED displays from Samsung Display to provide other devices such as laptops and tablets.
Besides, sales of iPhone OLEDs like iPhone XS and XS Max are slowing down. This forced Apple to consider another additional option to keep overall sales from falling too deep. Currently in addition to the iPhone, Apple has almost no other product that uses OLED displays.
Meanwhile, devices such as Samsung's Galaxy Tab S and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga are highly appreciated by the impressive display quality of OLED displays.
Unfortunately, it is not clear when Apple will bring OLED displays to its other devices. Earlier Ming-Chi Kuo analyst said that the new MacBook Pro will use mini LED screen instead of OLED. Meanwhile, Apple Watch Series 5 may use OLED displays. So it is possible that Apple has ordered OLED panels for laptops and tablets a few years ago.
According to experts, Apple is expected to apply the entire OLED screen on the iPhone since 2020. Earlier, the iPhone 2019, especially the new generation iPhone XR will still use the LCD screen. So it's no surprise that iPhone XR 2020 uses OLED displays for better display quality.
In addition, the iPhone XR is currently one of the most popular iPhones in many markets today. If you put the OLED screen on a device that sells as well as the iPhone XR, this will definitely be a two-hit arrow. On the one hand Apple has just been able to please Samsung Display with large and medium-sized OLED orders that can upgrade equipment and serve customers better.
