Apple’s goal of minimizing its reliance on Samsung-manufactured iPhone OLED displays has reportedly hit a snag.
According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, LG Display’s OLED screens destined for the iPhone production line have run into production problems. The publication is reporting that Apple is questioning whether LG is capable of meeting the required display supply demand as the tech giant’s potential second iPhone OLED screen supplier.
Apple currently utilizes Samsung as its only OLED display supplier for the iPhone X. With multiple versions of the iPhone reportedly on the horizon that feature OLED displays, it makes sense that Apple would be looking to diversify its OLED supply chain.
With the release of the V30, LG returned to using OLED displays in its smartphones. That said, issues with the display’s quality quickly appeared.
