A report from Korea suggests that LGD will produce 10% of Apple's next-gen iPhone OLEDs displays

According to a report from Korea's JoongAng Ilbo newspaper, LG Display has passed Apple's quality requirements and has started to produce AMOLED displays for Apple's next generation iPhone, to be announced in September.

According to JoongAng Ilbo, Apple aims to ship around 65 million units of its new smartphones, and has contracted LGD to produce between 6 to 7 million panels, around 10% of Apple's total needs. The rest will be produced by Samsung Display. LGD will produce the displays at its E6 production line in Paju, Korea.

We do not have any confirmation on that report yet. Last week it was reported that Apple is also testing BOE's AMOLED panels. Apple is obviously interested in diversifying its AMOLED supply chain, as it is uncomfortable relying on a single suppler for the iPhone's most expensive part.
