Next-gen iPhone and iPad may include OLED displays supplied by Samsung

battles in court houses of the Supreme variety -- Samsung and Apple rely on one another significantly. In particular, Samsung has supplied numerous components of Apple's most famous products. In an ideal world, one suspects that Apple would prefer not to have such dealings with what is arguably its fiercest competitor in the business. But it's a two-way street, since Samsung makes a lot of cash by providing Apple with the hardware. This behind-the-scenes bond could continue to blossom through next year, if the ETNews coverage is anything to go by.Despite their immense rivalry in the mobile business -- one that has frequently escalated into
The iPhone and iPad offer LCD panels amid the sea of OLED panels that currently flood the market. Apple is said to be testing the latter, with a view to utilizing the technology with its next-generation products. No decision has apparently been made as yet, and since it's unlikely that Apple will start sounding off before the release of these products, we'll have to hope that this info is soon substantiated by more details.

For the longest time, the iPhone Retina (and similar IPS LCD displays) had the edge in color accuracy and brightness. Even the Galaxy S4 and S5, which leveled the subpixel density playing field, were off the color chart. Last fall though, the Note 4 introduced the best display, hands down. The S6 and Note 5 continue that legacy. I could see Apple finally hopping over to AMOLED now that it's the best in the industry. I'm not holding my breath, though.

Samsung is like a first born kid.. Who does everything to strive and achieve milestones.. Apple on the other hand is like a mama's boy.. Giveth everything, following and eating all other's hardwork.. I mean Apple always criticize first on every new thing Samsung tries and then adopts it later only to call it its own.. Or say time wasn't ripe for its adoption... And so I gv it up for Samsung for striving so hard.. For its overwhelming investment in R&D which has greatly improved on today's smartphones

the difference is Samsung sells you their "experimental" device. while Apple kept the "experimental" version in their own garage, perfected it first, then sells it to you. just look at how many feature removed, and how user-experience differs with each itteration of Touchwiz. i believe every big company is striving so hard in their R&D.

Samsung did all experimenting and development then sold the product and kept on developing. No one has big enough garage to take out perfect system. Apple's product have failed too. Grow up, no one can afford to keep researching with big set of test products. Apple certainly does not.

you will be ignorant to say that. iPhone 750p ca easily compete with other OEMS 1080p. and its easy to see pixels on most 720p but its not with iPhone 6 display. I can see pixels on moto g display can see sometimes on M8 but its really hard to find on iPhone 6s. probably they arranged pixels in great way that we don't see them easily. iPhone is not the best its awesome ;) its coming from whom who used android phones most of his life but he bought his first iPhone(6s) is got fan of it.

That's totally biased opinion, please provide some plausible explanation. For me it's super amoled on Note4/S6 was being the best display, color pretty accurate, vibrant, dimmer in dark room & brighter under direct sunlight which my htc m8 suffers.

A lot of people like the exaggerated colors of OLED displays. I'm not concerned with color accuracy as long as the screen looks nice.

iBS Even before Galaxy S6, Note 4/5 , Samsung had overall better displays. Simply this AMOLED tech was expensive for the Apples profit model. That's why the apple's propaganda invented this "colour accuracy" BS. And using the media basing Samsung. Apple never buy new and expensive tech for their iphones. The reason Apple goes to AMOLED (if) , is only that the price is down now. That's how the Apple's profit comes. And new tech R&D, is where Samsung lose profit.
