Apple has found a more suitable supplier than Samsung for the manufacture of an important component of the iPhone!
In the eyes of the majority Samsung and Apple are rivals. But in the world of technology, companies compete when they have to and benefit just the same. Thus, for years Samsung has been the main provider of iPhone screens. But starting this year, this could change, confirming old rumors.
According to a recent post shared from Apple Insiderleaker Ross Young shared on Twitter, that Samsung Display will no longer be the sole provider of screens for any of the next iPhone 15Unlike what happened with the iPhone 14 when the Korean company maintained exclusivity.
_Although Samsung Display exclusively supplied 2 models in iPhone 14 series: Pro and Plus in iPhone 15 series will not have any exclusive.
The exclusivity was short-lived.
Despite the lack of more detailed information, this has not gone unnoticed, considering Young’s track record as a reliable source when it comes to reports on these types of components. However, although last year Samsung kept exclusivity, previous iPhone models have used multiple display vendorswhereupon Apple would return to its old sourcing tactics.
Formerly Popular Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, reported that Apple requested the order for the manufacture of screens from BOE for the second half of the year 2023. This company has been chosen to manufacture the LTPO (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) panels of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus and will surpass Samsung as the leader in the manufacture of screens in 2024.
According to this same source, BOE will have a market share of 70% in this screen manufacturing sector, Samsung will have a 30% market share.
In addition to this novelty in terms of the screens of the next iPhone 15, the Twitter account @UniverseIce recently leaked the exact measurements for the different models of the series.
Although there are still a few months to see it, all about to the point that the production of the iPhone 15 is going according to the established times and is expected this year, Apple surprises us by including at least 10 novelties of its famous device.
