Recently, it was reported that Japan Display Inc will enter the OLED display or screen market by initially supplying them for the production of Apple watches later this year. The collaboration comes as a relief for Japan Display, whose business has suffered due to Apple’s recent shift from LCD and low sales of iPhone XR in 2018 (the only LCD model of Apple Inc).
Currently, Samsung Display Inc is the only supplier for OLED panels for iPhones and LG Display provides the bulk of the panels for Apple watch.
As reported, Hiroshi Hayase, senior director at IHS Markit stated “Hurdles would be high to win orders for iPhones. Samsung Display has built up its experience, technologies and production capacity over more than a decade. Can Japan Display really compete with such a rival and make ends meet?”
