LG Display has not made a single OLED screen for iPhone X in 2017

The Apple iPhone X comes with a new OLED display, the first ever in an iPhone, as all previous models were equipped with LCD screens, but OLED displays differ. If you were wondering about where the iPhone X screen actually comes from, we now seem to have the answer.

One of the two biggest OLED screen makers, LG Display, has now confirmed that it has not shipped any screens for the iPhone X. This means that it is very likely that all of the iPhone X display units are manufactured by Samsung's display unit.

Samsung's OLED display technology made a debut in phones way back around 2010 and the company has been improving the screens for years now. Apple has previously said that it has purposefully waited for OLED technology to mature before using it in an iPhone, meaning that it finally sees the OLED technology as mature now.

The other interesting thing about the display panel on the iPhone X is that it actually is the phone's most expensive single component. You can read an approximation of the prices Apple pays for each iPhone X component here.
