LG Display will deliver the first OLED panels for the next generation of iPhone in the second half of 2018. The Investor expects LG to start supplying 6.5 inch OLED panels to Apple midway through 2018. Can we see the iPhone 9 Plus in September with a 6.5 inch OLED display?
The talks between LG and Apple for the delivery of OLED panels seem to be at an advanced stage. The Investor reports today that industry sources expect the South Korean manufacturer to begin supplying OLED panels to Apple in the second half of this year. The panels are likely for the upcoming Apple iPhone generation in 2018. The talks between Apple and LG will soon be completed, according to industry sources.
