Apple is in the final stages of testing new high-end LTPO OLED Displays from LG Display that would disrupt Samsung's Plans
According to a new supply chain report this morning, LG Display is in the final stages of review by Apple for its low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) OLED for use in iPhone 14 Pro Max. The final decision will be made in about two weeks' time.
This is the first time that LG Display is attempting to commercialize its LTPO thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED. Rival Samsung Display is already manufacturing the panels for both iPhone 14 Pro Max and Pro. It has commercialized the technology back in 2020.
LG Display getting approval for its low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) OLED would definitely disrupt Samsung's plans of ordering new equipment to meet Apple's needs for the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The original delay for LG Display was due to the new TrueDepth camera hole forcing them to change some of the masks used in the production process. The new samples that were sent to Apple are going through a reliability test.
If approved by early October, the South Korean company can start mass production right away, which will win it more orders.
It will be able to supply over 10 million units from newly produced batches from its E6 production line at Paju of up to 8 million units. For more on this, read the full report by The Elec.
