With its move to OLED displays last year, Apple can’t really move back to LCDs anymore. And it doesn’t seem like the company wants to.
According to reports, Apple has ordered as many as 4 million OLED panels from LG Display. We don’t yet know what the orders from Samsung look like, but it’s a good indication of the kind of demand Apple is expecting from the iPhone X1 (if that is what the company plans to call it). Samsung and LG Display were the providers for the iPhone X’s OLED screen last year.
Also, reports say that Samsung is set to remain the primary supplier of displays for Apple’s next flagship iPhone as well, just like it was last year.
Further, the 2018 version of the iPhone is expected to have 6-inch and 6.5-inch displays, along with Apple’s Face ID unlock feature. The company is also expected to improve processing power on its phone this year, while the camera technology will hopefully see improvement as well. Apple would want LG to ramp up its production capabilities, since lack of supply had hurt the company’s sales last year, for a while.
