Apple betting big on the glass iPhone 8? Samsung said to ship 40 million AMOLED panels for it
Of course, not everything will be delivered at once, as it is allegedly a three year contract running until 2019. Today's water in the Apple-AMOLED rumor mill is added by a research piece that claims Samsung will initially ship 40 million units for the 2017 iPhone 8 Plus model, or whatever it is named. In 2018, the batch will eventually grow to 80 million, and 120 million the year after.
Needless to say, by now there is barely a large mobile OLED display maker that hasn't been rumored to be in talks with Apple on such panels - Samsung, Sharp, JDI, AUO and LG have all been speculated already - so we can safely assume that Samsung won't be an exclusive supplier for long, if at all, yet the sheer thought for an iPhone with AMOLED screen has us salivating for more details.
