As the summer gets closer, will the fall iPhone conference be far behind? Taking into account the lengthy stocking period, Apple often needs to start mass production of new products six months in advance, such as the iPhone X Plus (tentative). Today's Economic Daily reported that Samsung will begin production of the next generation of iPhone X/X Plus's OLED screens from May, and volume production will start simultaneously.
It is reported that Samsung monitors will produce 2 to 3 million OLEDs in May, and by July, the production capacity will increase to 4 to 6 million. But this is obviously not enough for the two iPhones equipped with OLEDs, so Apple will use OLED screens from LG Display on iPhone X Plus. In February, the LG factory in Vietnam had exposed the front of 6.5-inch iPhone X. panel.
But now we still don't know how Samsung will arrange for the supply of 5.8 and 6.5-inch versions of OLEDs. Not surprisingly, 5.8-inch will all come from Samsung, and 6.5-inch may split between Samsung and LG. This is a point worth paying attention to. Depending on the poor performance of the Xiaomi Note 2 and Google Pixel 2 screens, LG Display’s OLEDs are certainly different from Samsung in quality.
After the screen began to supply, Apple has also planned to start production of the next generation of iPhone, in order to avoid the dilemma of last year's iPhone X to postpone the listing of two months. It is expected that Apple will begin construction after Samsung and LG begin mass delivery of OLEDs.
The news of the new product is coming. The golden iPhone X that came out a few days ago? Today CNBC issued a document saying that before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) leaked the golden iPhone X shown in the picture, it may have been abandoned by Apple. Because Apple submitted this model in September 2017, and the FCC's confidentiality term is six months, it now belongs to the normal exposure after the clarification period.
Since it has not been available for half a year, it shows that the golden iPhone X really encountered the capacity problem as analyst Guo Mingxuan said. Apple may really want to introduce a new color iPhone, but it has now been abandoned.
