Samsung wins new contract to supply Apple with OLED displays

Samsung has inked a new deal with Apple to supply the company with 60 million OLED displays for the next iPhone, The Korea Herald reports. The new deal comes after last year’s announcement that Samsung would be making 100 million OLED screens for Apple, bringing the new total to 160 million. Apple sells an estimated 200 million iPhones a year, but it’s still unclear whether the OLED screens will be used in all of Apple’s 2017 iPhones or just in the expected “iPhone X” premium model. Samsung is currently the only supplier able to ship OLED displays in time for the iPhone’s likely September release, since LG’s reported deal to provide Apple with foldable OLED displays wouldn’t go into effect until 2018.
