Apple Set To Dump Samsung As Sharp Joins The Smartphone OLED Market


A few days ago, we reported that Japanese manufacturer, Sharp, has indicated its interest to join the smartphone OLED display market.¬†The company announced earlier that it will start producing OLED displays for smartphones. Now, inside¬†report suggests that Sharp is expected to provide OLED panels for Apple’s feature iPhone (probably next year) so that Apple will no longer be dependent on its arch-rival, Samsung.

Last year Apple introduced iPhone X, the company’s first smartphone to use OLED screens. The OLED screen used by the iPhone X is exclusively provided by Samsung and it is the most expensive component of the iPhone X.

It is reported that¬†this year Apple and LG Display has reached an agreement¬†and LG is to provide between 3 million to 5 million OLED panels, but this capacity is not enough to let Apple get rid of Samsung’s dependence. Thus, Apple is now keeping a tab with Sharp and if its product is the real deal, it is likely that it will receive¬†orders from Apple and become another OLED supplier. With this, Apple is gradually cutting its dependence on Samsung.¬†However, industry insiders revealed that the OLED screen manufacturing process is quite cumbersome and not many companies can meet up with Apple’s standard.
