Samsung To Begin OLED Screen Production for iPhone X Plus, iPhone X2, And iPhone SE 2 Next Month
The long-time iPhone component supplier Samsung is already set to begin production of the new OLED screen displays for the rumored iPhone X Plus, iPhone SE2 as well as the X2, next month. This report is posted on Taiwan’s Economic Daily News website indicating plans to double its production capacity in July.
According to The Apple Post, the main supplier of OLED screens for the giant tech Apple, Samsung Display will make around 2 million to 3 million displays during May and an output between 4 million to 6 million units in July. The two sizes of OLED screen are the 5.8-inch screened replacement for the iPhone X2 and the larger phablet-based 6.5-inch screened handset for the iPhone X Plus.
This is a good sign that the simultaneous release date of the company’s widely rumored trio of 2018 smartphones, such as a new iPhone X (iPhone X2), a larger iPhone X Plus, and a mid-range LCD model (iPhone SE 2), will likely happen. The new lineup is already speculated to be announced in early September and made available for pre-orders later in the month.
The iPhone X Plus is going to be the next generation iPhone X from the giant tech Apple and will be sold at the same price as the current iPhone X at $999. This larger device was originally expected to have a panel that the South Korean firm LG supposed to manufacture but might not meet the production standards on time for Apple.
The new iPhone X2 is rumored to cost $899, which will be $100 cheaper than the current iPhone X. Meanwhile, the iPhone SE2 may join the aforementioned two iPhones in ditching a home button and Touch ID. This device will be a smaller midrange phone with a 6.1-inch screened edge-to-edge display and Face ID and will also feature an LCD display. This cheaper device is still expected to cost as much as $799 once it arrives.
