Rumor: Apple Sourcing 270 Million iPhone Display Panels in 2018
Posted by Rajesh Pandey on Mar 19, 2018 in iPhone X, while the remaining 40-50 million systems will be for the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. Apple will continue to source the majority of its OLED panels from Samsung, though LG Show is expected to join the OLED supply chain this year and end up being a secondary provider by providing 6.5-inch OLED panels. For LTPS panels, Apple will continue to source them from Japan Show, Sharp, and LG Display.Our Take Apple has
never procured 270 million display panels for its iPhones. This does not point to the business bracing itself for a record year of iPhone sales. For comparison, Apple offered nearly 217 million iPhones in 2017. The launch of a less expensive 6.1-inch iPhone with LTPS display panel and a bigger 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus will definitely assist boost the overall sales of iPhones this year. Offered the decrease being witnessed in the smartphone market, Apple is not likely to set any record for iPhones sales this year. Plus, one must keep in mind that Apple purchasing 270 million display panels does not indicate that all of them will wind up being usable. Apple will end up booking a couple of million systems for service functions, while another few million systems will be utilized for changing the screens of existing iPhones out there.Like this post?
