Apple Confirms LGD as 2ndSource for OLED Panels
September 17, 2018
After much speculation that Apple had ordered 5-10m OLED panels from LG, eTimes reports LG Display has been chosen as a second supplier for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens for Apple’s iPhones. A spokeswoman at LG Display declined to comment. The South Korean newspaper cited unidentified sources as saying that LG Display’s flexible OLED panels recently passed a series of Apple’s quality tests. If confirmed, the supply deal with a major smartphone maker could help LG Display gain a further foothold in the OLED display market. LG’s mainstay, older-technology liquid crystal display business is struggling with Chinese rivals and panel price declines.
