While OLED displays from BOE will be tested this week by Apple for minor iPhone 14 supply, it’s being reported that Samsung Display will supply Apple with organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays for their new iPhone 14 to the tune of 80 million panels.
According a report by ETNews (Korea IT News), Samsung Display collaborates with Duksan Neolux, Solus Advanced Materials, and Samsung SDI to mass-produce and supply OLED displays.
According to industry insiders, Samsung Display will supply 80 million panels for all iPhone 14 series models, which is scheduled to be released globally in the second half of this year. Mass production and delivery are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of this year.
The iPhone 14 is scheduled to be released with four models, two general models, and two pro models. Samsung Display is equipping iPhone 14 and 14 Plus with 6.1-inch, 6.7-inch, and for 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch OLEDs. 38.17 million panels will be supplied just for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.
Samsung Display will supply low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO)-thin film transistor (TFT) based OLEDs with excellent power efficiency and low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS)-thin film transistor (TFT) based OLEDs with high charge transfer and stability to the iPhone 14 series.
Samsung Display has been selecting material suppliers to supply iPhone 14 with OLEDs since last year. They selected Apple's OLED material 'M12.' Duksan Neolux, Samsung SDI, and Solus Advanced Materials were also found to have been listed in the M12.
Duksan Neolux will be supplying Red Prime and Green Prime, which emit red and green colors. Samsung SDI will supply Green Host, and Solus Advanced Materials will supply A-ETL.
