    I'm curious to think how two years ago or so, Apple had two different producers for their chips if i remember correctly. They can do the same thing with the producers for the glass of iPhone x, 'cause that's the shortage they are having, correct?? So, instead of Samsung making the parts, how about the hire another company to do the same also like they did before with their chips??

    “While there are other OLED panel vendors that Apple could theoretically turn to, Samsung currently produces the highest volume of the displays. Apple will need millions of the displays for its new iPhones, putting it in a bind. Samsung also holds the majority of OLED technology patents according to Apple Insider, and accounted for 97.7 percent of global production in April of last year.”

    so, then samsung is ****ing with apple since their note 7 set them back financially. So, Apple will delay the iPhone x until spring when Samsung releases their new galaxy and they are even.

    Yeah, I feel that way. I thought TSMC was the ticket away from Samsung. For all we know, Samsung is the one behind the delays for the big Apple iPhone X being the sole provider of the OLED displays...

    Because they’ve been working on the chips for longer than they’ve been working with OLED tech.

    Can OP correct the title? The mis-spelling is an eyesore.

    Ehhh....you’re reaching there.

    A deal this large likely has a well establish contract.

    Chances are it has to do with specs of the screens and the 3D touch layer that Apple requires. Speculation obviously.

    I still think LG is king of OLED. Samsung TVs don't stand a chance with their quantum dot.

    I haven't had the chance to test drive any new LGs. I have a 50" 4K Samsung in my living room and it's top notch (no, there's no actual notch at the top! :D:D:D). If the LG is better than that, then they have an amazing product on their hands.

    You'll enjoy this. This pits the flagship vs flagship. June 2017.

    Samsung invested very early in OLED. While Apple spent time grooming JDI and Sharp to refine TFT LCD. Samsung has exclusive contracts with suppliers of OLED production equipment and also those supplying OLED raw materials.

    In essence, Samsung has a lock on OLED mass production until 2019.
