iPhone 15 – iPhone 15 Will Samsung be able to monopolize the production of screens for the next series phones?Samsung will compete to produce screens for the iPhone 15 series phones
Last year, Apple trusted LG to deliver low-power OLED displays and provide a Variable Refresh Rate Depending On Display (LTPO) for its flagship iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, due to some revenue issues in the last quarter of the year, LG was unable to commit to delivery and could only supply 10 million screens, which delayed shipment of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple approached Samsung to get around the display production problem, Samsung Display charged the monitors at a higher price for the extra capacity and equipment requirements it had to deploy due to such an emergency.
Samsung may have a majority share in the production of iPhone 15 screens
According to The ElecLG may have already expanded its LTPO OLED screen production to be able to provide Apple with enough screens for both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. If this happens, it could make a real dent in Samsung Display’s share of iPhone 15 Pro series screen production this year because the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max account for 60% of 2022 iPhone sales so far.
To be clear, if LG Display takes over orders for Apple’s iPhone 15 series screens, according to the plan they outlined, Samsung Display could lose the supply chain monopoly of Apple’s OLED screens. On the other hand, Samsung is expected to provide displays for all four iPhone 15 models, including LTPS screens with a 60Hz refresh rate for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
Overall, Samsung will remain the dominant company in Apple’s display supply chain this year, but its overall dominance over flagship models will decline.
