Samsung will provide Apple with OLED panels for tablets, laptops by 2026

Published

Apple is anticipated to receive organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens from Samsung Display in the first half of 2026 for tablets and laptops, according to the source, Korea JoongAng Daily. In April, Samsung Display announced a 4.1 trillion won ($3.04 billion) investment at its Asan, South Chungcheong facility to modernize current manufacturing lines in order to ramp up production of iPad and MacBook screens. Samsung Display emerges as the largest OLED supplier for iPhones, although it has never provided the panel type for other devices. A spokesman for Samsung Display confirmed the year, but did not provide an exact manufacturing date.

“It is true that the new production line will be completed by 2026, but it is difficult to give a direct answer at this point as to whether the panel supply will begin in the first half or the latter half of that year,” the spokesperson said.

Samsung supplied OLED panels for the iPhone 15 series that was launched this year; the regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models’ are provided with low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) OLED panels, and the expensive models iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have LTPO TFT OLED displays. Offering panels for other electronics rather than smartphones is quite a great improvement for Samsung Display as a supplier. Annual exports of OLED panels are expected to increase by 138 percent year over year to 18.8 million units by 2024, owing to the debut of Apple’s first OLED-based iPads next year.

The amount is predicted to climb further to 22.6 million in 2025, 26.9 million in 2026, and 31.3 million in 2027. The investment at the Asan facility will be utilized to produce cutting-edge OLED display panels used in tablets and PCs. iPads and MacBooks have LCD displays with tiny LED backlights. They provide higher contrast and color, as OLEDs do not require a backlight. In order to make investments in OLED panels, China’s Visionox is also in discussions with equipment businesses.

A report revealed by the source states,LG Display and China’s BOE are also planning to invest in the laptop-focused OLED production line as soon as they attract the investment and clients.”

Also added:OLED panels did not gain much attention for the tablet product categories compared to smartphone and TV displays but are touted to have potential growth as demand for tablets and laptops grew after the COVID-19 pandemic and Apple decided to equip its products with the panels.”

With the Galaxy Ring, Samsung is aiming to provide more comfort to track daily routine health changes without disturbing the regular lifestyle. For starters, the new Galaxy wearable can track various health-related factors including continuous sleep and heart rate monitoring, activity tracking, workout tracking, and more.

During the Galaxy unpacked event, Samsung didn’t talk about any additional fees for using the Galaxy Ring features, nor did the company highlight any subscription model which indicates that you will not be required to pay any fee for using any feature at the moment.

But there is a twist, same as the case of Galaxy AI features where the company hasn’t publically spoken about the charges implemented on the features after 2025 and issued them in the document with a small font, the Galaxy Ring is also spotted to get some type of subscription model in the presentation slide.

However, if we observe the clause mentioned in the official presentation, which says there are no additional fees applicable to the current feature available on the Galaxy Ring, but the upcoming feature will be listed in the subscription, it means if the user uses any new feature on the Galaxy Ring then they will have to pay a certain amount
