It is known that provided the OLED screen for iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. The Korean group will still do the same for the iPhone 11 but this time with the same technology as the one adopted on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, according to The Elec.
Apple should have opted for a special display material composition, which can not be found in any other smartphone manufacturer. What’s behind Apple’s change of mind is unclear.
Three iPhones are planned this year, two with an OLED screen and another with an LCD screen. The ones with an OLED display will have 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch, just like the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. The LCD model will have 6.1-inch, like the iPhone XR.
Apple had selected a custom screen for iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, however, this would not be the case this year, hence Apple has opted for the same technology as the latest Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10. As of now, the iPhone X uses the display material codenamed LT2 and the one known as M9 will be used this year for the iPhone 11.
Samsung renews the OLED screens materials approximately every two years. New materials are first used, after which they move on to the models in the middle and lower segments the following year.
For the iPhone, Apple would be ready for new material this year after the iPhone X and iPhone XS, but apparently, Samsung will reuse the M9 panels, which has a number of advantages for Samsung Display.
This way they can standardize on parts and fewer suppliers. They can purchase in larger numbers and can, therefore, negotiate a better purchase price.
Apple will probably opt for the same pixel density and resolution as are already available on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. That means a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch, while that of the Galaxy S10 is slightly higher at 550 pixels per inch. With the Galaxy Note 10, the pixel density with 401ppi is again somewhat lower.
