BOE Technology is one of the largest display manufacturers on the planet. The Chinese firm, which already works with Apple, has signed a contract with the Cupertino company to equip its high-end iPhone 15s with OLED screens. Remember that these should be released in September 2023.
This is excellent news for the Asian company which had already tried in the past to supply its screens for the iPhone 12. Then, its efforts paid off and BOE joined the list of iPhone 13 screen producers from 6 .1 inches. However, the screens for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are currently provided by Samsung.
Tough competition with Samsung and LG
The parts that BOE should deliver allow in particular a variable refresh which can go up to 120 Hz, indicates Macrumor. In the meantime, BOE will continue to supply the classic iPhone 14 screens to Apple this year.
As a reminder, we recently told you about BOE because the latter should produce three times more iPhone screens than last year. It would then account for 20% of total production, just behind Samsung and LG.
The latest rumors that reached us on high-end screens point to a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 “Max” which, without reaching the photo capabilities of the Pros, would have a large display with a more attractive price than the Pros. Max.
As always, caution should be exercised with this type of information. By definition, we know that Apple only communicates the technical specifications of its devices at launch. However, supply chains often provide fairly reliable information months before the release.
