Samsung Display is expected to supply the largest number of OLED panels to Apple’s iPhone 14 series.
According to market research firm Omdia on the 20th, Apple selected Samsung Display, LG Display, and China’s BOE as suppliers to secure more than 205 million OLED panels to be used in iPhone 14.
Apple will receive the 6.69-inch OLED panel for iPhone 14 Pro Max, the highest-priced model, from Samsung Display and LG Display.
The 6.12-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.68-inch iPhone 14 Plus panels are exclusively supplied by Samsung Display.
Samsung Display, LG Display, and BOE were selected as panel suppliers for the iPhone 14 6.06-inch model, which is the cheapest model.
Samsung Display is expected to supply at least 80 million OLED panels to Apple.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are equipped with low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) OLED panels, and iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are equipped with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO).
LTPO OLED has the advantage of lower power consumption than LTPS. In addition, the screen refresh rate can be changed from 10Hz or less to 120Hz according to the consumer usage environment, so the power efficiency is about 20% higher than that of the existing OLED panel.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also expected to support the always-on display function (screen display during sleep mode). Reporter Na Byeong-hyun
