Foxconn to supply OLED displays.

iPhone 7 To Have OLED Display

Apple failed to bring sapphire display with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year. That would have been a major shift from LCD screens Apple has traditionally relied on. But a new report from Japanese newspaper Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun claims that the Cupertino company’s next flagship, likely to be called iPhone 7, will see some changes in display technology. The iPhone 7 will have an OLED display. That’s in line with previous reports that Foxconn Technology Co. and its subsidiary Innolux were setting up a $2.6 billion display manufacturing facility in Taiwan. The iPhone maker has hired Foxconn to make OLED screens for the iPhone 7 as well as Apple Watch. Production is expected to start in late 2015. So, it’s still unclear which iPhone would use the OLED screen.

Supply chain sources told Stabley Times that the iPhone 6S could be unveiled this spring, followed by the iPhone 7 in September. So, the OLED display is most likely to appear in the iPhone 7, given the production schedule. Foxconn’s new factory in Taiwan will exclusively make components for Apple. The two companies have strong business partnerships.
