We still have one month to go before the next year, but here we are talking about the 2020 iPhones. In the past few days, we saw a lot of rumors emerging about Apple’s next lineup of iPhone devices. According to the company itself, they’ll be a hit crossing the 100 million shipments mark in a short period. Now, we have more exciting news if you are a fan of Apple devices. Apparently, Samsung has finally found an agreement with Apple for the use of its Y-OCTA OLED panels. According to the ETNews, Samsung will be the exclusive OLED supplier for the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The Y-OCTA technology uses on-cell touch sensing, so it doesn’t require a separate touch-sensitive layer. Thus making the display panel thinner and cheaper to manufacture. Rumors have been indicating that Apple would make the switch in 2019, but that didn’t happen. In the next year, however, with an all-OLED line, it seems that Apple also thinks that it’s the perfect time for using Samsung’s technology. Moreover, it seems that Samsung is the only supplier that can manufacture these panels in the scale Apple needs them.
Besides the two iPhone 1 Pro models, Apple will also unveil two additional iPhones in 2020. The long-awaited iPhone SE 2 with a 4.7-inch LCD screen and the vanilla iPhone 12 with a 6.1-inch OLED. Unlike the Pro models, Apple will source OLED panels for the iPhone 12 from both Samsung and LG. That means that it won’t come with Y-OCTA technology and that BOE is absent from the list of suppliers.
