Apple has reportedly decided to adopt a flexible OLED display in its 2017 iPhone 8 (or will it be a >$1000 iPhone X?) and yesterday it was claimed that Apple placed an order for 70 million such displays from Samsung Display. Interestingly in February 2017 TrendForce said that Apple decided to use a rigid glass-based OLED as it was not happy with production yields and drop-test results of SDC's flexible OLEDs.
