Washington: The new series of iPhones are likely to have display from Samsung, LG and Chinese firm BOE, as reported by Ross Young from DSCC (Display Supply Chain Consultants) states.
The reports from GSM Arena revealed that the early versions of iPhone 14 pro max units would have only Samsung panels. The LG, which is grappling with some tech issues to meet the demand will start sending the consignments to Apple as early as September.
Though the Chinese firm BOE is capable of manufacturing good volumes of screens, the Apple has limited its purchases to iPhone 14 series and the display panel supplied by it is unlikely to be used in the Pro versions.
Samsung has supplied display panel to Apple for its iPhone 13 series as well. Officials said that Samsung has about 83% share in screens of iPhone 13 series. Detail info from Young suggests that shipment from display factories to assembly plants were 1.8 million in June 5.35 million in July, over 10 million in August and over 16.5 million in September.
Reports have it that Apple is preparing to have at least 34 million units for sale in the first three months after launch of iPhone 14 series. Apple has slated to launch the all four versions of the new series of iPhones—iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max—in Cupertino on September 7.
Tech analysts noted that it would be interesting to see how the new A16 chipset is going to enhance functionality features of the iPhone in its Pro versions and the new smart watches.
