The South China Morning Post reports that LG will supply 2-4 million displays for the iPhone X Plus.
Apple will probably lower their Samsung orders for OLED displays, and LG will become Apple's second supplier of OLED displays.
The first OLED screens from LG Display will be used in one model of the new iPhones slated for release this year, the people said. LG Display wants to supply all the screens for that Apple model, though it is not clear it can yet achieve that, one of the people said. The shipment is subject to two layers of approval, the first of which is expected around July, the people said.
Last month, ET News, based in South Korea, reported that Apple's transition to a full OLED iPhone lineup will be completed in 2019, but analysts now reject this claim:
The latest move does not indicate Apple is aiming for adoption of OLED screens for all of its iPhones next year and it is more about diversifying its suppliers, one of the people said.
