In addition to Samsung, LG also manufactures OLEDs for iPhone

Samsung is the company that manufactures the OLED displays used in the new generation iPhone, but as part of Apple's plans to reduce dependence on its rival, the company will soon begin to use panels from LG Display as well.

This is not something we hear for the first time as Apple and LG began working on 2017 OLED production plans, but according to a new report, the flexible sixth generation screens have recently passed all the certification tests and can be used in iPhone.

Production will soon begin in Korea and LG will be responsible for supplying OLED displays for at least one iPhone model.

There are no specific details at this point, but the XS XS Max is expected to be what uses LG screens, while the iPhone XS will continue to use Samsung screens.

Interestingly, analysts' estimates suggest the rather modest sales of the iPhone XS, with the Max version and the most affordable iPhone XR being the top-of-the-range sales this year.

The Samsung screen used on the original iPhone X was one of the most expensive parts of the device and by adding LG to the list of screen vendors, Apple could significantly reduce production costs. However, this does not guarantee that iPhone pricing could fall too much as the 2018 series has been released, with the 512GB iPhone XS being available at $ 1.449 in the United States.

If Apple starts using the LG screens in the iPhone XS series, Samsung could record a small revenue fall this year as Apple is one of the largest and most important customers given the volume of screens iPhone which he orders.

At this point, it is not known when Apple could begin to equip the next-generation iPhone with LG screens, but if the project goes ahead as planned, everything should be in place at the beginning of 2019.
