Sharp increases production, hopes to supply OLED screens to Apple

29 January 2019 4

Foxconn’s Sharp will increase the output of OLED display panels and hopes to become the OLED display supplier for the upcoming iPhones.

Earlier reports have stated that Apple plans to pack all models of the iPhone produced in 2020 with the OLED displays. The Cupertino giant currently sells devices with both an LCD display and an OLED display. However, with the OLED displays gaining more and more popularity, it is likely that many panel suppliers will increase the production of OLED panels.

According to reports Chinese panel makers including BOE and Tianma Microelectronics are also planning to increase the production of OLED panels. Other OLED makers include Lianhe Technology, Qijing Optoelectronics, Shan State Technology, and Nanmao Technology. These suppliers are the main display panel makers for a number of leading phone manufacturers. Smartphone makers are expected to launch a number of mid-range phones with OLED displays due to their popularity.

Sharp is one of the leading companies that are interested in supplying OLED displays to the Cupertino-based company. With the growing adoption of OLED panels by Samsung and Apple have prompted a number of smartphone manufacturers to configure OLED displays for their devices.

Currently, Apple’s iPhone OLED display is supplied by Samsung Display. Reports have suggested that Apple purchased some OLED displays from LG Display. If Apple plans to increase the number of iPhones with OLED displays, it may tie up with a number of other suppliers as well.

LG Mobile is probably pulling out of Philippines. They will invariably look for some sound business stream elsewhere. LG Display is doing well for Apple. But Sharp's entry can have an impact on them too?
