Samsung Electronics VP Kwon Oh-hyun revealed that the company is receiving "huge" orders for its upcoming OLED displays with flexible substrates, which it is marketing under the YOUM brand. Samsung's Korean factories have orders to make no less than 960, 000 flexible OLED panels this year, which is a pretty big number for a fledgling technology. That's why some analysts have been quick to start daydreaming that such a quantity might hint at the Apple behemoth ordering flexible OLEDs for its gadgets...

gotta agree with ya there. Had they said like 20 million screens.. or even 5-10 million as an initial order, i could of entertained the idea that apple moved from LCD to OLED.. but 960k? yea right. Thats probably for either a Tizen phone to get it noticed or that other company (cant remember the name right now) that is buying exynos processors from samsung for their phones.

Apple does such a good job keeping secrets that no one knows what they'll do.
