The release date of Apple phones is always reserved until the last moment. History repeats itself year after year and the month of September is usually the one chosen to present them in society, and thus promote sales for Christmas.
Until now, Samsung was the exclusive provider of OLED displays for Apple phones, but those of Cupertino, not very friends of relying on a single supplier, seems to be closing agreements with LG and BOE.
According to MacRumors, the Korean company LG will probably support the production of OLED screens this year and the list of suppliers with the Chinese manufacturer BOE will probably be expanded, already entered in 2020.
BOE is a promising leading Chinese manufacturer in the production of all types of LCD screens. It is currently developing next-generation OLED panels, including flexible panels for the new folding smartphones that have appeared throughout this year.
News about this has been indicated indicating that LG and BOE will start as additional suppliers to support Samsung in the supply of OLED screens, already this year, and strengthening production by 2020. Apple aims to diversify its supply chain in all the pieces that integrate their devices. It is usual to ensure at least two suppliers per component. An essential strategy that reduces supply risks, and gives you strength in the face of possible negotiations with these suppliers. Cook has always liked to take the pan by the handle.
Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones this year, two models with high-end 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED screens, and a more basic model with 6.1-inch LCD screen.
By 2020 everything indicates that the entire range of iPhones will be with OLED screens, with sizes 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches.
