Samsung to supply over 70% of OLED to Apple

Samsung is one of the leading manufacturers in the tech industry. Its stronghold on almost every minor to major tech equipment can define Samsung’s legacy. Its displays are so popular all across the world that the Californian manufacturer Apple also features them in its products. Apple is expecting over 120 million units of OLED for iPhone 14, of which the South Korean firm will ship nearly 70%, and LG Display and BOE Display will fulfil the remaining need. 

Coming to the Californian firm Apple needs more than 120 million units of OLEDs to equip their iPhone 14 device. Out of these 120 million units, mid-80 million will be manufactured by the South Korean company. As Samsung is only fulfilling part of the demand of Apple, it becomes beneficial for rival Display manufacturers LG Display and BOE Display. Out of the remaining display units, LG Display will provide mid-20 million units, while up to 6 million units will be shipped by the Chinese manufacturer BOE Display. 

The LEDs are required for a total of four variants of the respective device, of which two are lower-end models featuring low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) thin-film transistor (TFT), and the remaining two are high-tier models that will get low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistor (TFT) in them. The regular 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Plus models will use LTPS, while the 6.1-inch Pro and 6.7-inch Pro Max will use LTPO. 

Let you know that Samsung Display will supply the OLEDs for all four models while LG Display will only provide LTPS for the regular 6.1-inch model and LTPO for the 6.7-inch Pro Max model. Besides, the BOE Display will only supply the LTPS TFT, which will be equipped in the regular 6.1-inch iPhone 14 model. BOE Display was previously expecting to manufacture more OLEDs, but the regular iPhone 14’s sales needed to meet the expected numbers. 

Out of the mid-80 million OLED units, Samsung Display is expected to provide 60 million units only for the high-tier 6.1-inch Pro and 6.7-inch Pro Max models as their sales are better than others. The LG Display was about to ship more OLED for the Pro Max models, but due to the problems faced in its production, it allowed Samsung to increase its shares.
