Samsung to begin iPhone display production next month
Now, according to a new report, it appears Samsung, the company behind the OLED displays, will begin manufacturing them ahead of time. This is due to the fact that the two new devices, which are currently being dubbed the iPhone Xs and Xs Plus and are respectively expected to feature 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch displays, are set to go on sale in late September. This is just over a month earlier than last year’s iPhone X, which itself began shipping in early November.
Accompanying the two OLED models will also be a cheaper LCD variant. This device is expected to boast a 6.1-inch panel, therefore sitting between both the regular iPhone Xs and Xs Plus variant, and should also adopt the design language of last year’s iPhone X. This means that the physical home button is expected to be removed entirely in favor of the on-screen gestures, while TouchID will be replaced by FaceID.
