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.
LG Display has not made a single OLED screen for the iPhone X
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.

This article is completely irrelevent as PhoneArena well knows. Apple invested $2.67 billion in LG's OLED production for smartphones. The deal is for 45,000 panels per month for future iPhones from 2019. Note the 2019 bit.

"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" Now imagine if Samsung didn't invest heavily in AMOLED we all still be using LCD's which are more battery hungry and thicker. Thank god for Samsung and others pushing tech!

They lied you, if you think the oled tech wasnt mature in 2015-2016 you have no brain. The only reason they used the panels now, are because there is huge pressure from the public about it, and their sales dropped, otherwise they will still spin it like the amoled maturity was the problem, same goes for, Fast and wireless charging, less bezel, and so on. The only thing why they are behind, are because they wanted bigger profits, NOTHING ELSE!

Apple is aboit marketing. The Galaxy has had the bestvrated display, since the Galaxy S4 and Note 2. Easy to a Google the facts. Samsung phonesbhave had the best display since the S4 and no one had topped them yet. Even the Note 8 display overall is better than the X display. Even with what DXO stated. DXO lost credibility when they said. Their scores are not based on an overall average score. Which means they are made up mumbers.
