The Elec: LG and Samsung will supply AMOLEDs to Apple's iPhone 12

The Elec reports that Apple ordered around 55 million AMOLED panels for its iPhone 12 smartphone series, which will be announced later this year. LG Display will supply around around 20 million AMOLEDs - which is a big increase from the 5 million OLEDs LGD supplied for Apple's previous generation phones.

According to The Elec, LG will supply the panels for Apple's iPhone 12 Max (6.1"), while Samsung will supply all the panels for the iPhone 12 (5.4"), iPhone 12 Pro (6.1") and iPhone 12 Pro max (6.7").

The Elec says that BOE has not yet managed to become a supplier to Apple's new smartphones (DSCC thinks differently) - as the quality of its panels did not meet Apple's criteria. It is likely that when BOE first starts to supply Apple with AMOLED displays, it will be for repair panels and not for new iPhones.
