Reports from South Korea are stating that Apple will be using the same OLED display panels that are found on the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy Note 10 lineups for the upcoming iPhone 11 smartphones. To recollect, Apple used a distinct set of materials for the iPhone XS and XS Max that was presumably custom selected by Apple. However, this fresh report claims that Apple won’t be doing the same thing with the Apple iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
As per reports, the OLED materials used in the S10 and Note 10 are branded as M9 and Apple will be utilizing the same materials on the iPhone 11. Based on the performance of Samsung’s latest smartphones, Apple should manage the same scores with its next lineup of handsets. Also, Apple will be depending on Samsung Display to supply the OLED panels for the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro and the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max.
As per a report by 9to5Mac, “It’s not clear why Apple is no longer using a different set of materials. Perhaps, Samsung’s typical materials now meet Apple’s high-quality standards. There may also be logistical and price factors at play. Apple was recently fined ~$600m by Samsung for not meeting projected targets for OLED screen orders, so it is possible Apple may not have been able to negotiate the same amount of leverage this time around.”
Apple will supposedly launch the iPhone 11 series at an event in September and as of now, the company hasn’t confirmed the same.
