    LG Display to become Apple's second OLED supplier for iPhone X.jpeg

    Bloomberg reports that it looks as though LG Display has finally been successful in its bid to become Apple’s second supplier of OLED displays for the iPhone X, joining Samsung, which was, until this point, Apple’s sole supplier of OLED displays for iPhone X

    Bloomberg says that there were two main reasons behind Apple wanting to add another OLED supplier to its roster. Firstly, it wants to lessen iPhone production costs, and secondly, it does not want to be solely dependent on Samsung for its supplies.

    According to Bloomberg’s source, LG Display will initially supply Apple with between 2 million to 4 million units, as its ability to produce at high volume is still developing.

    Although the initial OLED production run for LG is small in relation to iPhone X sales, it should be enough to help Apple persuade Samsung to drop its prices a little now that it no longer has the monopoly on OLED production.

    According to Bloomberg’s source, the first OLED screens to be produced by LG will be used in one of this year’s new iPhone models.
