The Elec further reports that “Samsung Display will be supplying OLED panels for all four models of the iPhone 14 series. It will use its latest and most advanced material set for the higher tier iPhone 14 models while it will use its prior generation set for the lower tier ones, sources said. The move is being made to save cost, they said.
An OLED material set is comprised of dopant, host, prime and others used to form the red, green and blue pixels. Samsung Display calls its material sets used on Samsung’s Galaxy and Apple’s iPhones the M series.
In 2019 Samsung began using its M series for panels supplied for Galaxy smartphones and iPhones. Samsung Display will use its M11 material set for the standard 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models in the iPhone 14 series.
The two higher-tier models in the iPhone 14 series will use Samsung Display’s M12 material set.
Meanwhile, LG Display will use a similar scheme using their ‘RS-K’ OLED material set for lower end iPhone 14 modes and RS-L for the higher end iPhones.
Lastly, LG Display will be supplying LTPO TFT OLED panels for the first time to Cupertino for the iPhone 14 Pro Max model. For more, read the full report by The Elec.
