DisplayMate tests sapphire vs glass in Apple's Watch

A couple of months ago DispalyMate's Raymond Soneira posted a technical review of Apple's Watch Flexible OLED display. The display was found out to be excellent, and Raymond said that "there is absolutely no question that for smart watches, OLED is the only way to go for a great display".

Apple watch in Ambient light (Sapphire vs Glass)

The Watch in DisplayMate's edition used a Sapphire cover, while the cheaper Watch editions use strengthened glass (same one used in the iPhones and iPads). DisplayMate said that sapphire's advantage is that it's virtually scratch-proof, but it also reflects about twice as much ambient light as glass. In a new post, DisplayMate compares two Watch editions (glass vs. sapphire). As you can see above, the different under ambient light is quite dramatic.

Will Apple add SDC as a second flexible OLED supplier for the next-gen Watch?

The first-generation Apple Watch uses a flexible OLED display, exclusively produced by LG Display. New reports say that Apple signed up Samsung Display to be the second flexible OLED supplier for the next-generation Watch.

This is actually quite funny - even before the official launch of the Watch in March 2015, we heard the same report. Later on it was said that Apple decided to make LGD the exclusive flexible OLED display supplier for the Watch 2. And now we're back to the first report with SDC as a supplier.

OLED Technologies & Solutions files for bankruptcy

OLED Technologies & Solutions logoAccording to my sources, OLED Technologies & Solutions BV, an OLED display manufacturing solution provider, has filed for bankruptcy. This is a sad ending to a long standing OLED company that started out as OTB Display years ago. 

OTS offered a total solution for OLED display manufacturing: in-line OLED printed display manufacturing systems, backplane and display product development, OLED device, stack, and ink development, process development expertise and display characterization and improvement. The company developed a fully automated printed OLED processing line, the PCAP-20, and was developing their next-gen tool, the PCAP-48, a Gen-4.5 OLED processing line, designed to produce high quality large screen HDTV displays with industry record yields and lowest cost per display.

Reports from Korea claim that Apple may adopt OLEDs in the 2018 iPhone

Apple LogoReports from Korea suggest that Apple is considering to use an OLED display in the 2018 iPhone. The main reason that is quoted is that Apple wants to improve the saturation and brightness of their mobile phone displays.

According to the reports, LG Display may be chosen as the main OLED supplier. LG Display's current small-sized OLED capacity is very small, and so the company will convert its LCD facilities in Gumi to produce OLED displays, with mass production reached by the end of 2017.
