Continuing its legacy of launching three phones, Apple is likely to launch three OLED iPhones in 2020. Notably, the iPhone maker started this trend (of three phones) back in 2017 when it first released Face ID device iPhone X along with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
According to DigiTimes report, tech giant reportedly wishes to launch three OLED iPhones in 5.42, 6.06, and 6.67-inch sizes; the media must have got this information from handset component supply chain based out of Taiwan.
Handset Component Supply Chain Divulges Info of Three OLED iPhones in 2020
As of now, Apple would like to release three models in September 2019 – two OLED models and one LCD model. It is noteworthy that Apple will stick to its 2018 models, which showcase 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch screens (OLED screens) and 6.1-inch screens (LCD screen).
A notable input came from the handset component supply chain is that the smallest iPhone of 2020 will likely to flaunt Samsung or LG touchscreen technology, and this will make the display thinner than previous handsets.
“Additionally, the 5.42-inch model to be released in 2020 may come with either Samsung Display’s Y-Octa or LG Display’s TOE touch technology, indicated the sources, noting that both touch solutions promise to trim down the display cost.”
“Y-Octa is an advanced flexible AMOLED display technology that removes the film substrate and allows the touch circuit to be directly patterned on the film’s encapsulation layer, making the display thinner, indicated the sources.”
From the information supplied above, it indicates that Samsung Display will continue to be the primary exporter of OLED panel in 2020. Moreover, industry insiders would also like to watch if LG Display or BOE Technology can take OLED panel orders from Apple.
While the guesswork is in progress, sources believe that Apple is likely to ship 80-82 million iPhone units in the first six months of 2019 and approximately 180-190 million devices all through the year.
It is a fact beyond doubt that Apple is a hardware company, and it has to introduce excellent hardware products to revive its image. The declining iPhone sales and lackluster ‘Show Time’ event have certainly done some damage to the company. Services business may not give that exponential growth to the Cupertino-based tech giant. So what is next for Apple – a phone with a triple-lens camera or foldable iPhones?
