What the iPhone X Means for LED Industry

Apple’s product launch event on 12th Sep. truly went with a bang at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino. It by turns introduced Apple Watch Series 3, 4K Apple TV, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and, finally, the long-awaited iPhone X. The iPhone X sports a full-screen OLED display with a notch, or the sensor housing where Apple puts the sensors, cameras, and the speaker to create an iPhone that is all display. Apple has been seeking ways to obtain more OLED supply and even reportedly planning ‘OLED for all new iPhones in the next couple of years’. The fact that it switched the display material from LCD, mainly provided by JDI, to OLED will have a significant impact on the LED backlight business, one of the main sources of income for the LED industry. The market of mobile LED backlight is shrinking and will be replaced by OLED. By the end of 2017, the percentage of OLED display adoption will rise from 22% to 27%. For now, the yield of OLED production still needs to be improved and its price remains relatively high. It might still need some time for OLED to fully take over the phone display market but it is happening. http://www.ledinside.com/news/2017/9/what_iphone_x_means_for_led_industry
