    Shirt answer...Probably. The Nexus 6 used Samsung supplied screens but the Note 4 was superior IMHO. Samsung could just supply Apple the older inferior screens to Apple and keep their newest tech for themselves in theory

    And you think Apple isn't smart enough to ensure its suppliers meet its specs? Which could be tighter than the competition.

    I'm just stating facts of other phone manufacturers...... There is really only 3 manufacturers of OLED screens and one of them I believe isn't making small one but only big ones for TV'S ( LG). The other two is Samsung and some other Asian company I don't remember the name which is allegedly preparing their factories to make OLED screens for said iPhone 7. Samsung is easily the biggest and can handle the most so Samsung has some leverage but I doubt Apple will get second hand products.

    That's my point, Apple isn't getting the "leftovers".

    Not saying they were or weren't..... As I said Samsung would have leverage and if they desired to they could in theory use it. Samsung I believe is the largest supplier of small screen OLED screens that can handle the amount you'll need for an Apple device. Unless LG can but I don't think they make small screen OLED displays as I said.

    OLED displays will be in the iPhone eventually lol. They are superior IMHO unless youre going for color accuracy and even then they are fine now from what I have seen.

    Lulz cpu gate..... A non issue


    Also as I just said if they want OLED displays Samsung is the BIGGEST provider of them and probably only company who can do it on their own.

    But not the only supplier and as chip gate has shown Apple likes multiple suppliers.

    Whether Apple will get "the best" from Samsung is all conjecture at this point.

    I'm sure when the screens do finally show up, there will be comparisons and reviews (and the assorted Macrumors threads) covering it.

    Of that, I've little doubt. Just waiting for that day...

    2 yr ago i read from news apple hires senior oled expert from LG display and last year report apple set up a taiwan factory focus on oled display ... so i was wondering apple just ask samsung to manufacture oled display with their own technology instead of using samsung oled ... i believe apple like to control their own hardware

    Samsung likely won't use the same panel in their flagships as they do Apple for many reasons, one being it's doubtful Apple will want a 2.5K display. I'm sure Apple wants a high end display, and it comes down to how much Apple wants to pay Samsung, but it's not going to be identical to what they offer in their own phones.

    Too bad for Apple,Sammy is the only competent supplier of OLED so they dont have much of a say in the matter but to accept what Samsung gives

    This is Apple we are talking about. It's more likely that Apple will attempt to purchase the best and most advanced panels from Samsung, talk about how "our engineers at Apple decided to re-invent the entire display technology" so when their phone releases they really wow people with the "innovative screen", otherwise Apple I believe would have just jumped in and started using them when other brands started to.

    You underestimate apple then; they don't settle for second best. They might even be using a different manufacturing model that Samsung will be manufacturing for them. Nobody knows, so it's easy to counter idle speculation until it happens.

    I highly doubt Samsung will deliver the same panels that they use themselves to Apple but we will have to see.

    So Samsung has been supplying Apple with crap components all along? Man, those iPhones have just been crap all this time. It's a conspiracy! Samsung is behind the whole planned obsolescence thing. The mystery has finally been solved.

    Samsung will manufacture them, they will incorporate some samsung technology but the design and specs will be mandated by apple.
