All-OLED 2018 iPhone lineup unlikely, analysts say

Some analysts are rebuffing recent rumours that Apple may be dropping LCD displays entirely, Bloomberg reports, after an article earlier this week suggested that Apple was planning to go “all-in” on OLED for all this year’s models. Offering up several reasons why such a move is unlikely for this year, the report quotes analysts suggesting that it’s too early for Apple to make this decision, that adding that an OLED screen to the rumoured third LCD model would drive up the price to the level where there wouldn’t be a point in selling it, and that Apple might not even be able to secure the number of OLED screens it would need for the very large volume of iPhones that Apple sells, particularly considering that Samsung remains the only OLED supplier at this point, with LG Display still struggling to get its facilities up and running for mass production.
