The Elec seems to be sure that LG and Samsung will once again take care of supplying the panels for the next iPhone to Apple. The Korean newspaper even thinks that it will be posters with a punch, which will replace the existing notch in order to guarantee a better size / screen ratio for the user. However, these would only be intended for “Pro” models.
The components in question would also be designed with LTPO technology. This is already available on Apple Watch, and guarantees an adaptive refresh rate. Stamped “Promotion”At Apple, it achieves a theoretical rate of 120 images per second (films, video games, etc.) but can also be limited to much less in order to save battery when more is not needed.
BOE in ambush
According to The Elec, this order which is not encrypted would allow LG Display to maintain its lead over BOE Electronics, another subcontractor which would also have signed for a large batch of deliveries to Apple. Some analysts believe that it is only a matter of months before the second overtakes the first in terms of market share.
The Samsung group, for its part, would remain in the majority. We have already seen it at the helm of the OLED screens of the iPhone 13, a work that the chaebol would therefore renew on the occasion of the release of its successor. This one is expected in four different editions: the classic 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a larger 6.7-inch version and two iPhone 14 of the same sizes. Of course, both the names and their technical characteristics remain to this day at the stage of mere guesswork.
The Elec also specifies that the firm with three CEOs would be the only one to design the panel of the iPhone 14 Pro, which would have precisely a diagonal of 6.06 inch. To be confirmed, there too.
Finally, note that Jahwa Electronics is also mentioned but with regard to the photo unit of the iPhone 14. Stabilizers OIS would then be produced by the service provider in a factory located in Gumi (North Gyeongsang), South Korea, before being then sent for assembly. (source)
