Apple to nix Samsung and Sharp as iPhone 6 display suppliers, sides with Innolux instead

Apple is said to ditch Samsung and Sharp as display suppliers for its upcoming iPhone(s), and will strive to replace them with Innolux. The main panel makers will still remain LG and Japan Display, but they apparently won't be able to satisfy the expected demand, so Apple will be hedging its bets with another one, it just won't be Samsung or Sharp, which have been the usual suspects so far.
iPhone 6. Samsung is apparently too much of a direct competitor, while Sharp has been having quality and yield issues with the rumored ultrathin 960x1704 pixels panel, that manifested in “moiré” effect with the test batches produced.A Taiwanese publication is reporting that when choosing between Samsung, Sharp and Innolux, Apple settled with the latter, and tasked it with making the supplementary batches of the alleged 4.7" display for the
Innolux is one of the largest OEM LCD display makers, producing flat panels for everything - from phones, through notebook and desktop monitors, to TVs, so it's not lacking experience in the field one bit. It was also rumored to replace Samsung for the iPad mini panels, so the collaboration with Apple has a history, too.

You absolutely can see the difference. I can see the loss of smoothness of text under normal usage when going from my Nexus 5 to my Girlfriend's iPhone 5. You need 477 pixels per inch at 12 inches for a true "retina" display. http://www.wired.com/2010/06/i

They tweak the chip after ARM does all the heavy lifting. It's like a kid's coloring book: Yeah, you can make a pretty picture, but at the end of the day you're just coloring within the lines at best, coloring-by-the-numbers at worst.

If Innolux is so experienced in making glass screens for everything, why is it that they were in the "red ink"...The two new jobs should help Innolux make up for prior years of red ink. Apple choose this company because it was cheaper and a good deal, IMO. O.o

Yeah, for now. Trust that Samsung WILL be making panels for apple. They're frienemies, we're the fools who hate each other, while they bank off of us.
