Apple has reportedly ordered 92 million curved OLED iPhone panels from Samsung Display. The deal was first reported by Korea-based ET News, Chosun Biz, and other media (via Digitimes).
The report notes that Samsung Display will ship 70 to 92 million small-size OLED panels to Apple this year as Cupertino gets ready to launch the so-called “iPhone 8.”
Earlier this week, Nikkei said Apple had ordered 70 million “iPhone 8” OLED panels from Samsung. That report noted that the actual number of panels produced could exceed 95 million, depending on demand.
The iPhone 8 or “iPhone Edition” is expected to feature an all-new OLED edge-to-edge display and 3D sensing front camera system. Numerous reports have suggested that the handset will arrive in stores in October or November after being announced in September.
Alongside the iPhone 8, we’re also likely to see the “iPhone 7s” and “iPhone 7s Plus.” These handsets are said to feature the same basic design found on current iPhone models.
