iPhone 14 series is coming up, and according to industry insiders that have been closely watching Apple’s OLED supplier Samsung Display for this phone’s production capabilities – it looks like we’ll finally get some clarity on what kind of panels they’re using. A new report claims the company will help reduce costs by applying materials of different grades depending upon which model you’re going with
iPhone 14 models are expected to sport a variety of different screens, but one thing they will all have in common is Samsung Display’s OLED panels. The technology won’t be exactly alike across the board though as there has been some discussion about how much each model might cost consumers at launch and which features would come standard with them based on preorders or purchase options when purchase day arrives.
Industry watchers say that Samsung will use lower-grade materials from the previous generation on their less expensive iPhones while reserving the most advanced ones for top-tier models.
The new iPhones will come with panels developed using Samsung’s so-called M11 and M12 material sets. The 6th generation of these materials is an LTPS backplane that can be used in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models of iPhone 14.
New technology from Samsung will be used to manufacture the backplane for Apple’s new iPhones, which are expected this year. The company has announced that their newest M12 material set is being employed in the production of OLED panels on both upcoming Galaxy models -foldable phone Astroway release date unknown at present time but we’re keeping our ears close!
However, due to the higher cost of producing OLED displays, it’s estimated that Samsung Display will likewise make 80 million OLED panels for the iPhone 14 series.
To help keep costs down on their end, it seems that Samsung will once again be using lower-grade materials from the previous generation. This news doesn’t come as a surprise considering that the tech giant did something similar with their Galaxy S20 models.
