Japan Display to supply Apple with OLED screens by 2018?

Japan Display Inc.—a key supplier of the LCD displays used in iPhones—is rumored to be in talks with Apple to supply OLED screens for iPhones as early as 2018, Japanese newspaper Nikkan reports. Reports that Apple is testing OLED screens in its prototype iPhone 7 models have prompted speculation that Apple would be forced to move away from companies like Japan Digital and Sharp, which currently supply iPhone LCD displays. But Japan Display reportedly plans to have an OLED prototype line in place by next spring and is sending executives next week to pitch Apple on its plans for scaling up to mass production by 2018.
