Apple increases orders for LTPO OLED displays for iPhone 14

Apple increases orders for LTPO OLED displays for iPhone 14 Pro Max from Samsung Display

According to the South Korean publication The Elec, due to the high percentage of rejects in the total volume, Samsung Display is hoping for further orders for the production of OLED panels made of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) for the most expensive smartphones of the iPhone 14 series products from competitors.

Because of this, Samsung Display expects Apple to request large-scale production of LTPO OLED panels. This was reported to The Elec by industry sources. According to some reports, Samsung has already ordered additional equipment for the production of LTPO in order to expand production – it is very likely that the company’s actions are not only based on its own calculations, but are also supported by agreements with Apple. The need for LTPO displays is expected to be fueled by the release of the iPhone 14 Pro Max that uses such a screen.

Manufacturing equipment was ordered from AP Systems, HB Solution and Philoptics late last month. It is expected to be shipped to Samsung Display’s factory in Vietnam, where the panels will be converted into individual finished modules before shipment.

Samsung Display is known to have increased its delivery schedule for OLED panels for iPhone from 130 million to 149 million due to Apple’s increased demand. The company has a longer history of manufacturing LTPO OLED panels than its competitors. In 2020, it had a high scrap rate when LTPO OLED was released for Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra flagships, but has been able to stabilize the production since then.
