Apple Watch Series 5 to Feature OLED Panels from Japan Display

2020 iphones oled

According to a report by Digitimes, the series of iPhones that will release in 2020 (the iPhone 12) will be smaller than current iPhones - the smallest handset will have a 5.42-inch display, stepping up to 6.06 inches and then 6.47 inches for larger devices. The manufacturer has an OLED pilot line running in eastern Japan (via Reuters). The iPhone XR now uses LCD display - which is very much less vibrant than an OLED display - compared to the better OLED displays found on the iPhone XS and the XS Max, in order to cut production costs. In comparison the iPhone XS, iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max have 5.8-, 6.1- and 6.5- inch screens respectively. The source also apparently said that Samsung is most likely to remain the primary OLED panel supplier for Apple. This move will give way for the company's transition into creating more OLED iPhone models next year. That's actually LG's business, which is soon expected to be shared with Japan Display.

Even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with the Apple Watch Series 4 screen, supply chain competition is always good, generally driving progress and innovation forward at a much faster pace than when a company holds a monopoly on one or several essential components.

According to the report, Apple will be continuing its three-tier strategy for next year's iPhones, so despite the potential elimination of LCD technology, it seems that we may still see a successor to the iPhone XR.

Japan Display (JDI) went through some rough years as Apple started its transition to OLED screens. It will all sport an OLED screen that is said to be either from Samsung or LG.

Apple likely will keep an iPhone with an LCD screen hanging around for one more year. But is this really the iPhone SE 2 though?

Also, by the year 2020, Apple will also find a way to improve the pricing on the entry-level iPhone models as well. This is a way of making the display thinner while also trimming costs.
