Samsung is the main supplier of OLED panels that are being used in all high-end iPhones, such as the iPhone X, XS and XS Max. This resulted in a costlier production procedure which shot up the price of the iPhone to Rs 1 Lakh.
Samsung is now looking to reduce the cost of OLED panels that are currently being used and hopefully make it thinner and lighter at the same time.
As per a report by Korean website ETnews, the new OLED panel from Samsung is called ‘Y-Octa’ and will have a display with touch integrated within.
This basically reduces the thickness of the OLED panel and in turn, makes it lighter too. This type of OLED panels is currently being used by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 9 and S9. The report also adds that at least one of the 2019 iPhones is expected to have the same display tech.
