Apple has allegedly picked LG Display as its second manufacturer of flexible OLED monitors, according to Korean Technical News Page ETNews . Rumors about Apple using LG as a possible alternative OLED display provider was launched in June, and today's news is called unidentified sources claiming that LG's OLED panels had passed Apple's quality test recently.
Samsung has now been Apple's only OLED display provider since iPhone X was introduced in 2017. Samsung, who agreed to deliver around 100 million OLED monitors in the first deal, had a monopoly allowing the company to control pricing . If LG enters the image as another provider, it can minimize Apple's confidence in Samsung.
If the deal goes ahead, the LG Display OLED monitors will probably be used for iPhone XS and XS Max, the only iPhones that use OLED monitors. They will not be used to the cheaper iPhone XR, which was also announced on Wednesday because it uses an LCD monitor. LG uses OLED monitors for its own V30 smartphone ̵
Although it was reported in April that LG could not meet Apple's requirements for OLED monitors, the new quality tests seem to have revealed any doubts Apple had about the partnership. The ETNews source also reports that LG is now ready for mass production at its new OLED factory, so LG monitors can be closer than we think.
