Apple to diversify from Samsung for flexible, foldable iPhone OLED display supplies
by Daniel Petrov / Nov 27, 2017, 9:10 AM
Needless to say, the products that roll off the conveyor belts will need to be checked for quality and consistency by Apple, before we see BOE screens cut to fit the next notch-y iPhone XI and XI Plus, or whatever Apple names them, but the sheer fact that BOE may have decided to go ahead with such a huge investment, is pretty telling.
The tip that BOE is working not only on flexible, but on foldable OLED panels, too, and plans to have their ratio at 50:50 further down the road, coincides with the rumor that Apple is exploring iPhone and iPad prototypes with bendy panels. Samsung is heavily rumored to unveil a foldable Galaxy X next year, so Apple might want to keep its options open should those prove useful or a success.
Even if apple put sub quality cheap chinese oled display in iphone 9 the sheep will get in line to buy it

Please don't waste the screen real estate, like you're doing with the Plus models, and the X. All that screen, and no split view, picture in picture, or multitasking dock. And Where's the damn Pencil support?

Think they backed themselves into a corner. Theres not many new ways they can implement any new UI features without revamping a ton of things. Look how screwed up the control center and reachability gestures are on the X. iPhone users should prepare for a huge shift in usability, what we're used to is not going to be the norm next year as they try to catch up on software features.
